If you saw my Instagram posts yesterday, you know my daughter and I were having a blast at the Toronto Blue Jays WinterFest. Normally at this time of year, some of our players head on a lucky city in Canada for their Winter Tour. As Canada’s only baseball team, they recognize that their fan base is not just city or province-wide, but nationwide. It’s great to see that kind of appreciation for fans.
Thanks to my friend Mike, I became a baseball fan and introduced my daughter to it when she was two and half years old. Since then, we look forward to attending games every season. But this is the first year, we went to WinterFest fun.
There were so many activities we couldn’t do them all in the seven hours we were there.
We decided to get some proper face paint and tattoos first.
We visited Ace and Ace Jr’s nest. I had never noticed it in the outfield before.The field was filled with activities like throw and catch, ice skating on wax and ping pong.
A band played in between QA sessions with the players and staff.
We got to sit in the SportsNet broadcasting boot where Jamie Campbell normally sits.
Thanks for a great time Toronto Blue Jays!
Who’s your favorite team? What do you get out of being their fan? Leave a comment. I love hearing from you.
When I was a university student, I celebrated the end of the semester with a reading day. After my last exam, I would walk to Chapters Bookstore (now a Victoria’s Secret) on the corner of Ste-Catherine and Stanley streets, ride the escalator to the second floor and browse the rows of romance and fiction novels.
It could take time to find the right book. I looked for one which started with a sentence capable of catapulting me from the floor of the bookstore into the story. And, my intuition had to agree to the selection. It sought the book that would captivate, engage and relax. I found many enjoyable books this way and I write hoping readers will find my stories as enjoyable.
As I wrote Secrets, the story flowed onto the pages. The characters lived the joys and sorrows while I recorded the events and empathized with them. Even the editing went smoothly. I had a special connection to this story.
Based on comments from beta readers and Kirkus Reviews, I believe you’ll feel this connection when you read it. It’s now available as an e-book on Amazon. To find out more, click the cover.
How do you choose your reading day book? I’d love you hear from you. Leave me a comment.
