Friday Favourites

It was the first official week of summer this week - E is at sleep away camp and Q was at a multi-sport camp with two of his friends from school.  We get to see some photos of E and he looks like he's having a good time.

The new Sephora opened at Union Station and I stopped in on Monday.  I picked up a new lip pencil from Nars and some face stuff.  I already had the cleanser and scrub but thought I would try out the Vitamin C serum and eye cream. 

In this week's edition of the Union Summer Market, I went over on Tuesday with some people from work.  It was raining but we sat under cover and had a nice lunch.  Sadly the salsa music with dancers had to be postponed due to the rain, but hopefully we can catch them again another time. 

When I picked up Q from his camp on Wednesday we stopped in at the Annette Village Farmer's Market to see what we could find.  We got some lemonades, pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese buns), butter tarts, and strawberries.  Q was also very interested in the bee hive at the honey stand.

I turned one of the containers of strawberries into this pie. 

My building has some outdoor seating that I kind of forgot about but I decided to take my lunch up there on Thursday.  Lots of shade and not that many people.  I will go again. 

We decided not to go to t-ball on Thursday and it was nice to have nothing to do. Dave was meeting colleagues for drinks downtown so Q and I sat outside after work - he watched Netflix on the iPad and made paper airplanes, and I read my book.  Then we ordered McDonalds on Uber Eats.  Perfection!

If you have a blog, please link up with us on Monday. We are going to be writing about Family Food Traditions. 

Today I'm linking up with Andrea and Erika.


  1. Loving all the dining outdoor photos! We try to eat outside as much as we can this time of year too.

  2. What a great week! Your strawberry pie looks so delicious and what a lovely way to spend the afternoon with Q. Happy first week of Summer!
