a day like that

Sunday morning loafing about around the farm. Eating eggs and bacon and fruit and sitting outside drinking second cups of coffee. Thinking about important things like, "remember antennas?"

Seeing lovely Kathleen Edwards at an outdoor event the second time this summer, and in fact the music is terrific all day long, and the Windsor Salt Band at closing time makes us not want to leave.

Two up on the hill, playing with that golden sunlight.

More golden sunlight, on golden gals.

The party's over, but there's a river I've known. I'd forgotten that in Amherstburg the sun sets on the river, and it takes us a long time to leave the park when the light looks like that.

A gentle evening; Sunday afternoon wine drinkers and food tasters all gone home to get ready for a new week.

Detroit River, one more time.

Bonfire, talking; it's too warm in front and chilly behind. But it's a pleasant shuffle, forward, backward, forward, backward, toes stretching toward the flames…

 

outside all day

It's a full day, and pretty much all of it is spent outside.  I have a bike ride while Ceri goes off to the office for a little while.  Later we hook up with Kelsey at David Pecaut Square for a free Kathleen Edwards show, part of the Luminato festival.  Then we walk though the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood and have a snack on the patio under the Gooderham (Flatiron) Building.   After that we walk down to Sugar Beach for the Toronto Wine and Spirits Festival.  We bump into my friend Kerri and her friend Nikki.  It's a great night, we wander around, sample foods and drinks, and sit near the water chatting until the place closes up.  Walk home quite late and fall asleep pretty much immediately.

Getting to spend summer in Toronto – beautiful thing number ninety-one.

This little one enjoyed the show, having a little dance and tapping her foot now and then.

I liked how the shape of the fountain mimics the shape of the St. James church spire.
