random bits

My good friend Victoria took this photo. We had a celebratory dinner in honour of her husband who is going back to school - MED SCHOOL. He starts a week before anyone else. We had homemade burgers, greek salad and Chocolate Spice Bundt Cake. We ended the evening with a big round of Apples to Apples.

We are off to Bard on the Beach again - this time we shall see Othello. We are bringing our children. It is a strong cast and we are all looking forward to the play. We are also spending the day in the city - doing a bit of school shopping - some new shoes and funky accesories are on the list.

The heat wave is back. We will shut down the house and draw the blinds before we leave - the tent is sitting casually in the corner - just in case.

We have harvested our first two tomatoes - maybe by Thursday we will have enough to make grilled ham and tomato sandwiches.

I finished The Scarecrow by Michael Connelly and next on my list is The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill.

Happy Tuesday

Good to have this meal; huge transition time ...

we can't win... rain = cooler temps, sun = hot.

Wishing you a good day. :)

I've never seen "Othello", but I'd love to (even though I know it is gory and sad)

That looks fantastic!
