Happy Friday! Canadians are finishing up their short week, and I know the Americans have their long weekend coming up.
I'm still feeling unsettled by the Uvalde shooting and then yesterday police in Toronto shot and killed a young man who reportedly had a rifle and was wandering around near some schools in the East End (not near us at all). I still don't understand why this issue has to divide people - wouldn't we all be on the same side of not wanting people to be killed by firearms? Anyway, I've read all the hot takes, and I posted my own on Wednesday. Moving on for today...
One of my very favourite Toronto summer things is coming back this year, the Union Station Summer Market. I started my job in February 2019 and it was that summer I got to experience the summer market several times on my lunch break. I am excited it is back this year. It's basically a bunch of food stands, a biergarten, and live music. It's a scene, man.
Donuts from Golden Gecko. Procured by E after his piano. Apparently since he had money at school that day, he also bought popcorn from the grad fundraiser and ice cream from the ice cream truck parked at the playground.
Dave and his new lawnmower. Our grass is looking good so far!
When E was at tutoring on Wednesday, Q and I put in some time at the playground. He was the only kid there so it turned into a bit of a photo shoot.
I said it looked like was riding a dragon when he sat on the teeter-totter like this.
And then he was surfing.
My favourite spring flowers and scent.
When we got E from tutoring, we went to the Dark Horse for supper.
I wrote a fun post on Monday for Dave's and my anniversary.
My trip to Montreal is coming up next week. We booked dinner and brunch reservations and I've also scoped out some rooftop patios where we could go for a drink. Add in some shopping and site seeing and we're all set!
