The Birkbeck Building.  This building warrants a return with my real camera. Adelaide Street, Toronto

Happy Friday.  It's been a relatively quiet week at work; calm before the storm with work on a big, important proposal launching next week.  I meet up with Ceri and my girls for beer o'clock and dinner on a patio, where we enjoy watching dogs of all sorts and sizes leading their humans in and out of a nearby condo building.  Quiet, chatty evening at home.   Life good.

When I walk inside my office building this morning, a woman is saying, "it's god-awful-ugly out there" and I'd just been thinking about the gorgeousness of the city under rain.

It's still unseasonably mild – especially this morning. What a pleasant day to walk to work!  I just know I'll be crying a frozen river any day now.  

In the meantime, how pretty is that morning sky in that window over the door?  My little journey along Adelaide Street finds a number of buildings with their names over the doors, the stories behind which will vastly outlive the glass and steel condos and offices being constructed behind them.

I love this special tribute to a tree stump.  A tree stump monument.
