August 2020 - Toronto ON
John got to work painting the window frames.
You can see the shutters and framing on the balcony, 1-800-GOT JUNK will pick them up this week.
Oh what the heck, let's just turn around and head down the on ramp the wrong way.
I forgot to mention last week that I bought a new paring knife because my old faithful had cracked. I had bought a couple of cheap replacements that just didn't work for me. I was in The Bay, the first time since March, and was speaking to the clerk about a replacement. In the end he also sold me a bagel/tomato knife which is quickly becoming by go to. John is still getting over the shock that two knives would cost $80.
The clerk also suggested I send a note to Henkels with a photo of my cracked knife as they are guaranteed for life, which I did. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
We dropped off a couple of laptops and the kitchen TV to Best Buy as they recycle electronics.
Friday! Where did the week go???
I headed to Yorkville.
Monday was curry chicken with leftovers for lunch.
Tuesday leftover Shepherd's pie and salad.
Wednesday and I knocked another off my 2020 cooking bucket list, mussels ✔✔✔ in a vodka tomato broth. John didn't love his mussels which is unusual, he thought they were stringy.
I finished Autumn (Seasonal #1) by Ali Smith which I was excited to read. But it left me confused, it just wasn't coherent, but I will try the rest of the series.
I finished The Gilded Cage and let's just say revenge is sweet!
I started another Camilla Lackberg The Scent of Almonds.
The New Bohemians was a great book to browse through. Normally I physically borrow cookbooks or decor books from the library as they do not read well on a tablet or phone. But this time I downloaded it to my laptop and it was very easy to read and I could use the snipping tool to "cut out" articles.
