Quick post, no pictures

Made it to Toronto Friday afternoon and am having a blast hanging out with Brigitte! And how fun is it that Brigitte expanded her family while I was here?!

Update on vacation in bullets:

  • I didn’t get a picture of the silo with the ginormous inflated jack-o-lantern on top while I was driving, but wished I had.
  • I’m still not over the fact that I’m using exotic Canadian money. Why the heck is US money so monochromatic and boring?
  • Toronto is lovely, although I’m really not sure how many streetcar pictures a person really needs.
  • How did I miss the fact that Lake Ontario is right there?! Brigitte and I are going to walk down to the beach tomorrow.
  • We had some tasty gf treats at a new cafe on Queen Street yesterday. Yum!
  • We also ate fabulous salads at the Green Eggplant. Perfect salads. Yum!
  • Rumour has it we’re going on a yarn crawl with Lorraine on Tuesday. Looking forward to that.
  • Gandalf, Atticus, and Mae all seem to like me. I am honored that the reclusive Mae seeks me out for pets!
  • Probably I will be sore from laughing so much with Brigitte.
  • I started a new sock and am half done with the foot. More details on that soon.
  • I have introduced Brigitte to the wonder of Lakefront Brewery’s New Grist gf beer. We have a mission to find it in Toronto now.

More later!

  1. Sounds fabulous! Good luck finding New Grist in Toronto. I have enjoyed the Lakefront Brewery’s tour in Milwaukee — highly recommended if you’re in the area. Plus there’s a great organic restaurant nearby, Roots.

  2. It sounds like you’re having a fun time! Too bad you didn’t get a chance to take a picture of the jack-o-lantern silo. That would be a great picture.

  3. I think the guys are going to be sorely disapointed when you leave… It’ll just be me, and they’ll be bored. I’m glad you’re having a great time so far – just wait until you meet Lorraine!

  4. Oh Chris, I am so glad that you arrived safely and that you are having a great time!!!
    I just wanted you to know that I still love you… even though I can not see May or Chaos… =(

  5. Glad to hear that you are relaxing and having delightful fun !
    that kitten is SOOOOOO cute. Makes me want another right now! (hisss, hisss, say Di and Em)

  6. Sounds like Brigitte is looking after you “right fine” Chris!!

    Glad you are liking my town..

    Have fun – “Streetcar Pictures?” Yikes… lol


  7. It sounds like your vacation is completely marvelous!

    I loved my little vaca in Toronto ages ago, but I really didn’t do that much while I was there. Makes me wish I had been brave enough (or had just thought to) seek someone who lives there out to get a better idea of the sites!
