Oh, We Get By With a Little Help From Our Friends

This is a quickie post since right now I am in bed recovering from having had surgery on my foot on Tuesday. All went well and while I won’t be up and walking normally for a couple of weeks yet, I am feeling fine. Thank you for the kind notes and well wishes you have sent.

And thanks also goes out to my feline pal Eddie for help with the blog today.

I know these pictures aren’t that great, but there is no way I could ever recapture this scene to get better photos, so these will have to serve in showing you what I saw the other day. Although I only caught him with his eyes open, I looked over to find him fast asleep, with his wee head propped up in the curve of chair. It looked so cute. Of course, once I went near with the camera he woke up and moved, taking away a sight that was very likely a once in a lifetime thing.

Thanks for taking a look. I have plenty to show you next week! ‘Til then I hope you’re all well.

Out to See a Play : Gash

On Sunday, I met up with my friend Meghan and her friend Pamela, (who is now my friend too), and we went to see a play called Gash. This was part of the Toronto SummerWorks Performance Festival. Unfortunately Sunday was the final day of SummerWorks, so it’s too late to see this play as part of the festival, but if you ever see that it is being staged, I’ll say that it’s a fun and engaging show.

It was showing at Theatre Passe Muraille, which is located in a neat historical building erected in 1902. It originally housed a bakery and stables and looks quite different from anything else in the neighbourhood. Pamela and I had the same thought about the place, that we’d both walked by it a hundred times, but neither of us had ever been inside. Now we have. It was converted into a theatre in the 70s, and doesn’t really look all that remarkable inside, but I love the way it looks on the outside.

After the show we walked up to Kensington Market and got something to drink at Jimmy’s Coffee Shop and sat and talked out on their back porch. It was a great afternoon out.
