Behind the Shop
We were so excited to announce our first School Supplies Drive for Covenant House Toronto earlier this summer. As the school year starts to settle in, we're about ready to wrap things up, and it's about time, as our front table's been overloaded and we've got boxes under the table and in the back ready to be delivered.
Fun fact: inside our packing area are the up + down buttons to operate a freight elevator that is located outside our unit. The buttons and the elevator doors are separated by a wall, and so people who want to use the elevator have to use the buttons inside the elevator itself. Crazy stuff.
We're heading out on our wild Canadian adventure! And by wild, I mean, it's going to be a bit intense and crazy to see how Caleb does in a tight cabin and walking up and down skinny aisles with other humans in such close quarters. But it's going to be great.
A long overdue post! Two weeks ago we were invited in to The Candy Palmater Show at CBC Radio, and we were thrilled to have another family adventure. For those of you who have been following along with the blog, you might remember we visited the CBC this past February to chat with Fresh Air about letter writing for Valentine's Day.
Hope you all had a great long weekend and Canada Day, or Independence Day if you're in the US! We had a wonderful Canada Day celebration. Canada Day was on Friday, and our brick + mortar was closed for the day.
A few weekends ago we did some planting and re-potting and freshening up of everything. I meant to post about this earlier, along with a few other things, but I've been soaking up every park visit and evening dinner picnic we can get, and making mental notes and random notes on all the things I'm supposed to write about.
I've always loved discovering different neighbourhoods in Toronto, especially because I didn't grow up here - everything's always seemed so new and exciting to me.
It's Friday! And to celebrate (so late at night especially), I thought I would share a few photos from our last trip to the supermarket.
As what seems to usually be the case, I'm writing my blog with the baby-who-is-now-a-toddler snoring in his crib, and the dog snoring on the couch, and the big cheese snoring on the bed after a few glasses of wine.
It's coming up to Jon's birthday, so we're celebrating early and all month long and with good food, mostly involving meat.
