Our 2014 ended with a lovely visit with our daughter Kate and her partner Jason in Toronto, Canada. The weather was unseasonably warm, so I was happy that I hadn't worn my wool coat! A vest and a raincoat served as the perfect cover-up.
We stayed at the charming Gladstone Hotel on Queen Street, four trolley stops away from Kate's street, so traveling was very convenient. The hotel is very quirky and each room has a different theme. Ours was "Travel" and a stack of vintage suitcases hid the TV and DVD player!
The hotel was hosting a fiber art exhibit which Kate was excited for me to see. Part of it was right outside of our door! These are just a few of the pieces on display.
We visited Kate's lab where she teaches wearable technology and looked at some of the projects being made by her assistants. Lots of electronic bits and pieces!
We had a delicious Christmas eve dinner prepared by Kate and Jason...
after which we played with trying on some funny hats which Kate had made...
Lots of laughter!
These visits are never long enough, but it's always so great to spend time with family.
And now we move on to new beginnings!
I wish everyone who reads this a wonderful New Year filled with good things!
May this be our best year ever!!
