Last Tuesday at Kozawyck's farm, sketch - pastel 10x14
This Tuesday there won't be much left of the snow, maybe a snippet here and there.
We’ve had a succession of sparkling days. Today is unbelievable.
Yesterday I climbed Snake Road on my bicycle with my husband David. When I reached the top I felt unpleasantly warm and overdressed and unzipped two layers. Now we were on the escarpment in Waterdown. I thought it would be nice to show him the Kozawyck farm off Center Road but it was oppressively busy with cars so we turned around and did the usual loop – about 50 km on country roads, past Connan’s Nurseries, stopping at a convenience store for apple juice just before hwy 6, one of our busiest highways. We crossed it into Milgrove. – cycling into a strong headwind and crosswind – the homestretch seemed endless. Also sections of road were submerged under water from the melting snow. Now David felt chilly and I began to feel strain in my wrists and derriere. It was a relief to turn on to Brock Road at Greensville and then descend the very steep hill (hwy 8) into the valley town of Dundas. We stopped at the ubiquitous Tim Hortons for coffee and a sandwich. Half an hour later we were home, by this time dark. I was the first to jump into a hot bath. Took an ibuprofen and flopped onto bed for a luxurious nap. Bliss.
