Day of rest

I made my list of things to do, then promptly took the day off. I mailed a couple of things and met Martha at Arton on Queen St. West. I found a chain I wanted for a necklace I'm making for myself, got some good advice from Martha who knows everything, then we went to Starbucks (because the other café wasn't air-conditioned!) and followed with an amble up Spadina with a stop at a Chinese pastry shop where I got my favorite sesame balls still warm from the oven -- yes, I ate them both while we walked -- and we had a look around Gwartzman, not our favourite art store, however.

Tomorrow will be busy as I tackle The List.

One week to go before I leave!

Have a sweet day!


  1. Hello dahling! I've been so remiss in not commenting here but do know I read! I am so happy for your upcoming trip. I googled clafouti and Wicklow Hills...both sound delicious in different ways. I hope you'll share photos, I've always wanted to go to Ireland! Perhaps you could pick up a small stone on your hike in the hills??
    Loving all your new pieces here btw!
    Sending love and hugs your way,

  2. sesame balls? I think I had them when I was in San Francisco.. very sweet. Can't wait to see the necklace - it will be gorgeous as usual I am sure.
    Thanks for the info on the Cathars.. finished the book late last night. I want to read it again.

  3. Sounds like the perfect day. (I'm with you on Gwartzman's--the staff is usually gnarly there, or so I've found).


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
