Saturday and we binged on series/movies. John watched Jack Ryan and Coronation St.
I watched The Hours, I had read the book years ago and may have seen the movie back then, not sure.
And a Canadian film, The Bad Daughter, kind of cute.
We started watching a new series Dublin Murders is a television series based on the first two Dublin Murder Squad books by Tana French, The story, consisting of eight episodes, is adapted from In the Woods and The Likeness. I made sure I let Tina of Squirrel Head Manor know about the series as she is a fan of French.
Burgers and fries for dinner.
Sunday looked like this. Thank goodness we have a convenience store in the building.
Winter weather warning in effect as ice pellets, freezing rain hit southern Ontario
We don't even need snow for this out our window.
Monday and I picked up some items for dinner as John's son was in town on business and coming over. I made my go to Spanish chicken thighs with mashed white and sweet potatoes using chicken stock.
Typical winter morning after a snowfall.
Wednesday and John took a walk along Lake Ontario. Looking east towards downtown, you can see the CN Tower in the middle distance.
There we are, on the far right.
We finally decided to subscribe to Netflixs, had been hold outs. So we are currently bingeing our way through Peaky Blinders, we had seen the first couple of seasons but decided to rewatch them.
The sun came out for a second while I was downtown.
Set up our new lamp from Ikea.
John put our new Ikea trolley together.
Dinner was pasta carbonara.
Friday was girls' day out and we went to Bay and Bloor to check out the new Eataly store.
And I was impressed!
Eataly Toronto is part of a chain of Italian food emporiums with over 35 locations worldwide, including this 50,000-square-foot outpost in the Manulife Centre at Bloor and Bay.
Three floors encompass counters for pizza, seafood, meats, cheeses, baked goods, gelato and more.
There's also several full-on restaurants, a cooking school and a basement brewery, beer bar and bottle shop by Indie Alehouse.
Bakery on ground level, there is seating everywhere.
Lots of specialized counters for eating.
Incredible cheese and deli choices at good prices.
A produce section includes mushrooms that are foraged for and farmed by local Canadian producers.
I have never seen yellowfoot mushrooms!
Then a browse through Indigo.
I picked this up for our small table.
Finished The Perfect Plan, I just found the plot too confusing but did have empathy for Liam and his difficult upbringing.
I started Anything is Possible but I don't think I will finish it, just not getting my attention.
