it has been a busy weekend in these parts. yesterday our friends andrew and sabine came over and we took them out for dinner at our favourite indian restaurant. the place has absolutely no atmosphere whatsoever, but the food is always so yummy. i think they liked it. after dinner we came back to our house and had drinks and chatted. paul took this picture from the stairs. that's sabine in the middle and andrew looking up, at the bottom of the picture.
today i met up with a friend named carla who i haven't seen for awhile, and another girl named lisa, who i met through glitter. the 3 of us went to a church of craft meeting in a park. it was really fun and relaxing just to sit around and knit and talk. the tree that we sat under had this hanging from it.
look closely...that's a plywood cloud with val kilmer's face as "raindrops". i don't know if this just happens in toronto or not, but there are people who put posters up around the city with val kilmer's face on them. they also write his name graffiti-tag style around the city. i know, it's kinda weird.. but it was amusing to be sitting under this little val kilmer art installation in the park.
after church of craft, i went over to kensington market to grab some food for dinner. i snapped this picture of my favourite place to buy fresh produce. i love the colours in this photo!
while i was in the market, i also bought some fake meat from 'king's cafe'. i got soy tuna (which is delicious when baked in foil with olive oil and lemon) and soy drumsticks (which taste so much like chicken wings when we cook them in bbq sauce). the drumsticks have the texture of chicken and they even have little wooden skewers as "bones"!
i was so happy to find the new location of alchemy bakery. the man who owns this bakery is an artist, no kidding! he makes the most wonderful bread, like i've never tasted before! we always get our favourite...potato and herb focaccia. it has big chunks of sea salt sprinkled on top. mmmmm! the owner is the nicest guy, too. i don't even need to tell him what i want...he always remembers!
i hope you had a good weekend, too!
