Working the Sunday thing

I wish I had a photo of the Damn Fine Apple Pie
Steven made using Reagan Daley's In The Sweet
Kitchen cookbook. He picked the last apples
from the tree and had enough to make just one
more apple pie. But I digress.

I seem to be getting out more. We made a trip
to the Eglinton and Spadina Shopper's Drugmart
and the wheelchair access gate was locked. To use
that gate you have to get someone from inside the
store to open it. So what are you supposed to do
if you can't find anyone? Luckily I can slip through
the bars on my crutches and then sit in the wheelchair.
The chair's a boon because I can't hold up on crutches
for more than a few minutes at a time.

Then we went to Starbucks and I didn't need the
wheelchair, I just winged in on the crutches.
That was cool -- to sit in my favorite coffee shop
with Steven and have a coffee. Then we visited
Sam briefly in the clothing store where he works --
again on crutches because we just walked in whipped
around the store and left. Each of these small
ordinary activities is a big deal when you've been

After all that excitement I fell asleep with Fiona
lying on me while I was reading my new magazines and a novel.

But I'm off topic. I did paint today. I worked on two of
the paintings I showed you earlier this week. See
if you can see what I did to this one. You can.

It's not finished yet I don't think.

Have a doing-what-you-love day!
