Some of you here know that I travel a fair amount (and by fair, I mean 90% of the time), so I figured it might be fun to create a post with workplace views! Here’s mine today out near Yellowstone.

@James favourite virtual patio soon.. i think ..
saw this on LinkedIn.. it’s on the Black Sea… i want…
9 pm / 32°C?? I'll never complain about the Summer in Japan ever again!
You can find vines for 8 dollars a bottle (the kind that gives you that nasty headache the next day), but prices can be up to 300 dollars. However, you can buy a refined wine for 20 dollars in most of the liquor stores.
and finally!! Let us know how it is!! I appreciate the bottle it’s being poured into ha!
I’m over in an area called Breezy Point, Minnesota this weekend, which looks like below. This is a really big fish area, which normally I’m a fan of, but some fish did not agree with my stomach today so I’ll be holding back on the fish for a while ha!
I’ll be heading out on holiday for the next two or so weeks, but I’ll have plenty of fun photos when I return!
@john.desborough I’ll be attempting to practice my terrible French while I’m out, so maybe I’ll actually be able to talk to you in it when I return!
Have scotch, will travel!
Be safe on your travels
Some go and some come back :D
I’ve just returned after a 2 week break in Galicia, my birthplace.
On the surface this pic doesn’t show anything interesting, but what if I told you those two people are my dad and my 2 year old son throwing stones to the sea?
I took it last night from my bedroom, it warmed my heart
overnight the temperature here dropped from 30C to 8C and this is the sunrise (with coffee) view from the balcony.. when i first came out, you could not see the trees across the road in front of the small lake.
this area is “THE ski hill” in the eastern part of Canada during the winter and during the summer they have hiking trails, ziplining and other things on the mountain - including a crazy-a** downhill mountain bike race that happens every so often.
now back to the coffee maker to fill up the travelling mug so that i can go to the pool with my wee beast and mom can go shopping for winter clothes at the ski hill (big sales!).
I will report on the first trip to a restaurant in over 18 months tomorrow morning lol.. assuming we survive!
Oh, man...I wish I had stayed more than one year and a half in Canada! There's so much to explore! If I could choose one place to go back over there, I'd probably say "Rocky Mountains in the summer"!
I do hope you survive! What would we do without you in our community? Hahaha Jokes apart, take care, and enjoy your time over there!
our little haven was about 3km from the ski resort village on a little lake and when the temperature dropped from 30C to 8C overnight, the warm water and cold air caused fog on the lake in the mornings.. it was all gone by about 730 in the morning as the day heated up but was magical to sit in the mist with my coffee as the world slept around me.
This week the ladies of the house are still away but I am home catching up on work and it’s the annual ‘make tomato sauce’ event for me.. so this is the view of my kitchen Monday night and then as the sauce went on to simmer yesterday (and is still going today) - 120 pounds of tomatoes will turn into pure (in my opinion) heaven!
all those tomatoes .. wonderful sauce.. these 4 pots and then enough to do another two 20-litre pots when these are done simmering down.
this is where i am working from .. write an email/post, stir the sauce..
and drink coffee … of course lol
What are you making with all that tomato pure? Just drinking the pure on the rocks? 🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅
beats wasting the tomatoes in a village square food fight.. thought that is a very fun time La Tomatina is something to look forward to doing next year, after they cancelled for a second year…
@john.desborough that looks so good!! I love fresh tomato sauce! How do you store all that ha?
Speaking of food, I finally got to try the infamous Cervejaria Ramiro on a day layover each way to Paris, and I think I might need to move to Lisbon now.
@Liz - that looks amazing.. life is tough when you have to stop for that as a snack lol
I freeze most of the sauce so that i have it available year round. And a number of friends are recipients of several pints of sauce.
i was originally going to answer like Maui from Moana - “In my belly!” but that was suppressed by having had only 4 coffees so far lol
HAHAHAHHA you definitely should have provided that answer,
Can you ship the sauce to the states?!
no.. you want it, come to Ottawa for a visit lol.. we can do a ‘live support’ session from the igloo if you come in the winter .. office hours lol..
Wow...That's a lot of tomatoes! You know I also make my tomato sauce? I usually get some tomatoes, an onion, some garlic, and olive oil. Put everything in the oven for almost one hour, take them out and mix them using a blender. Then, I put it in the refrigerator! Very easy!
Now that I'm in Barcelona, I'll start eating a lot of Tapas. Stay tuned for some photos!
This weekend I had a wedding on a boat, and while I don’t have a photo of the food, it was catered by Harry Caray’s, which is a really good steakhouse in Chicago. I don’t usually like Italian food here (nothing beats Italy!), but they come pretty close!
@Gabi Amaral pics or it didn’t happen!! I miss tapas there!
Yesterday I went to this place in Barcelona called "El Nacional". It's a beautiful space with lots of restaurants! Very nice atmosphere and tapas! Totally recommended it!
cooking is fun.. eating is more fun
How….how does one not like pesto?!?!
@john.desborough It’s nearly criminal that no one else in your family appreciates the joy of pesto.
