A room with a view

On Wednesday I drove into downtown Ottawa for a meeting at the Westin Hotel.  The Westin has a great location downtown right beside the Rideau Center, the Rideau Canal and the Parliament buildings.  Combine the location with a great sunset and we had a beautiful view of the Parliament buildings and the Chateau Laurier.

This weekend I cleaned out my closets trying to get rid of some junk.  I'm planning on a visit to the Salvation Army drop off box tomorrow afternoon.  The drop off area tends to be full on the weekends so I'm waiting until they've had time to clean out what's been left on the weekend.  Last time, I opened the drop box and a box of records fell out on top of me.   So I'll wait until its safe.

I'm still working on organizing my tatting junk.  I need to pick up a few more photo albums for my odds and ends.  No tatting stuff is being shared with the Salvation Army.


  1. How exciting! - that's just where my son is living, right opposite the Rideau canal! I think his building must be in the opposite direction, because I can recognise landmarks in your picture.

  2. What a great photo. I wish the meetings I attend had a view like this!


Anyone out there? Say hi if you are......
