Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: November 10, 2022

Even if I knew that tomorrow
the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree.

~ Martin Luther
German – Leader November 10, 1483 – February 18, 1546

Porte Ponderings:

Yes, I would continue to plant things as well.

Yesterday, I painted two more Christmas Cards.

Today, I’m going to have my left eye lasered to clear off the back of my replacement lens. There was a terrible mix-up with the referral from my Optometrist, but once the referral was received the appointment was set up quickly. It’s a very quick procedure, I had it done 4 years ago on my left eye.

Tomorrow is Remembrance Day, so Zumba is cancelled and we’ll all be at the Cenotaph to pay our respects.

November is almost 1/2 over and I’m looking forward to going to Cuba at the end of the month. Christmas is already trying to make it into the discussions as I’ve booked our Family Christmas Eve get together. I’m having a house-sitter while we go to Florida, so I’ve invited her to stay while we go to Cuba. So much to do. So little time. ❤

Daily Quote: November 10, 2020

If I am not allowed to laugh in heaven,
I don’t want to go there.

~ Martin Luther (German – Leader November 10, 1483 – February 18, 1546)

Holidays and Celebrations:


The prediction for today is sunny and a high of 22C. (more of the same) It’s so hard to believe that November 2020 is so beautiful. I went walking with my sister in the morning and we stopped while the dogs frolicked in the leaves behind the skate park. Rickie ran circles in the leaves while Maddie chased him in bigger circles. In the afternoon I took my kayak and went to Pinery Provincial Park. The Old Ausabile Channel was clear and flat. Water lilies had been replaced with oak leaves floating on top of the water. I saw 10 turtles catching the last moments of sunshine.
