Day 31
How I usually spend my Saturday mornings: procrastinating getting out of bed.
Day 30
Had my good friend, Sonya, over for breakfast this morning before getting started on our Social Studies unit plan. We toasted waffles, made café lattes, and ate a few figs the Bensason way.

Day 28
Never thought I'd say it - but after a long day, doing a bit of mindless cleaning as the sun sets is a nice way to wind down.
Day 27
Jamie left for Kitchener today to say goodbye to his great uncle Jerry. I wish I could've joined him.
Day 26
My current obsession - broiled lettuce. Sounds gross, looks nasty, I know. But, if done right, a lightly toasted piece of romaine is pretty damn good. Here's the dressing I made with it, courtesy of - 1 Tbsp spicy mustard - 1 Tbsp white vinegar - 1 Tbsp light mayonnaise - 1 Tbsp lemon juice - 6 cloves garlic, pressed or grated - Healthy pinch each salt and pepper - 1-4 cup olive oil - 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped Top that off with some aged cheddar, and you got yourself a...
Day 25
Spent most of Sunday walking through the Byward Market and Centre Block with Jamie, hoping to snap a few nice pictures. I didn't have much luck. On our way back home, we walked down the Rideau Canal, weaving through skaters, and ended up stumbling upon a maple syrup shack! I couldn't resist. We treated ourselves to some "tire sur la neige" ... and froze our fingers trying to eat it without gloves. In the end, I think I'm happy with how today's picture turned out - here's Jamie, with his bristly ...
Day 24 : Mortar & Pestle
Maryse and I took cooking lessons while vacationing in Thailand some time ago and discovered using the mortar & pestle to prepare various pastes, dressings and seasonings. We eventually bought our own set and have begun to use it more often in our own cooking.
Day 23 : David's Photo Op
Went to FlashWR tonight, a photography event showcasing local talent in photography. My friend David's shot of children playing ball in Cuba was chosen as one of the images to be displayed using state of the art projectors in the Lang Tannery building. That's David in the foreground.
Day 22 : Condo Building
The construction next door to where I work is coming along. Every once in a while the crane carries a massive load like this one.
Day 21 : Off By More Than 50%
Came across this quick sale at the grocery store. Couldn't make out what was in the package. Expired fruit maybe? Whatever it is, I passed on the past due.
Day 20 : If It's Tuesday This Must Be Jerk Chicken
Had every intention of taking a picture before digging in but couldn't help myself.
Day 19 : Priceless !
24 post dated cheques. 14 Orthodontist appointments. 100s of elastics. My daughter's beautiful smile with her braces removed today....
Day 24
After a week of hard work, I decided to start the weekend off by giving myself a bit of me-time. I pulled out Mummy's old watercolour set, made myself a cappuccino, and spent three hours fooling around with different colours. Most of them were crusty or dried out... but I had a few yellows, reds and blues to work with, which was all I really needed.
Day 23
Friday - the end of a busy week, without sleep. After Mike and Andreea left yesterday, I spent another all-nighter to finish a book report on a novel I hadn't yet started. After class I went for a short skate with the girls, came home for dinner and attempted to watch Selma with Jamie. I had to call it quits 15 minutes into the movie and ended up crawling into bed at 9:30pm.
Day 22
Before Mike and Andreea made the trek back to Kitchener, we took our skates out for a spin on the Rideau Canal. Not going to lie, I was a little rusty. Seriously though... My blades had literal rust. Poor Mike took a hard fall while skating backwards, and we all had a good laugh at his expense. We ended up warming up with some hot tea and sushi afterwards, and then reluctantly said our goodbyes.
