(Toronto has a complicated garbage
system, and we all have three bins --
green is for compost, the large blue
bin on wheels is for recycling, and
the large grey/brown bin is for
garbage. Most people keep the bins between the
houses at the back of the driveway, which
is where ours reside except on garbage day.)
It's Saturday and unlike the stifling hot day pictured above, it's cold
and windy. But the sun is out, the sky is blue, so all is well.
Our Saturday errands got us up frighteningly early today, so
I thought I might as well hop over to the local market at the
Wychwood Barns. At this time of year it's outside, and the wind
was whistling through the tents over the stalls. I bought two varieties
of peaches -- the season is almost over here. A cheery fellow at one
stall was making organic donuts. I bought a dozen for Sam and Steven.
I have to run now, but I'll talk to you tomorrow.
Have a wow-it's-Saturday day.
