I was lugging bags of books to work today, to contribute to the office "earth week" recycle books and toys initiative. (And also in support of my own de-clutter/spring cleaning initiative.) Sunlight at Roy Thomson Hall was a good excuse to put the load down for a few minutes and snap some photos.
What starts as a rather dreary morning, becomes a spectacularly sunshiny afternoon. After putting corned beef and cabbage into the slowcooker, we take a walk out to Liberty Village via the lakefront and check it out. It's a new neighbourhood, a gentrification project. The place is mostly brand new condos and businesses around a few old warehouses. We walk back along the wonderful King Street. Grateful for some vitamin D.
Met Lili and Maria, lovely former colleagues for tea after working late tonight. Got all caught up on news, then walked home via King Street, which is so spectacular on a clear, dark night like tonight. It was cold again today but the gusting winds were gone and it was a lovely day, and a lovely evening – I enjoyed my walks downtown this morning and home again tonight.
We're getting summer weather. 25°C today. In March. City people everywhere are flocking to patios to enjoy it while it lasts. It's not a stretch to think that we could still get a snowstorm. Because it's March. Ceri and I decide we want to take advantage before the temps dip down at the weekend and see if we can get on a patio too. We decide on some options and I will meet him after work. He, on his bike, scopes out the first two and texts me, "no go." He's going to ride up to King Street and I'm almost to the option we decided on there. I walk into the crowded patio and there is Kelsey. She and Carly were going to do the same thing. She has a table and so we join. A really fun, unexpected hook up!
