Carrie, Jason and Amie, oh my!

A bit late on the post here but oh well: Carrie, her husband Jason and their daughter Amie drove up to Toronto from Chicago last weekend for a visit. It was a fun time — Saturday exploring Kensington Market and more of Toronto, and Sunday at the Toronto Zoo, and then in the evenings the […]

Going car-free

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately — been busy with work, finishing up the last bits of apartment decorating before Carrie and family come visit, and exploring the city now that it’s Damn Hot out. On Father’s Day we drove back to Belleville to go out to dinner with my father, the first long […]

This morning I had recommendations from a bunch of people I knew, and one person I didn’t. Why one person I didn’t? Because one […]

Toronto update

Well, I suppose I’m due a post, eh? It’s been a whirlwind, so I’ll quickly skim over everything. I’m in Toronto! I got here on Saturday morning with Candice. We spent the weekend seeing apartments — 6 or 8 on Saturday, and then two on Sunday, staying at the Holiday Inn on Bloor at St. […]
