My Birthday

Despite feeling extremely blue over my health, my birthday yesterday was quite enjoyable.

Hubby and I went down to an area called Kensington Market. It's a hodgepodge of a couple of tiny streets in downtown Toronto, full of health food stores (I wanted to buy a product that might help with my knee--ha, ha), hippy-dippy second-hand clothing stores, fruit stores, bakeries, cheese stores to make you salivate, butcher shops, vegetarian restaurants, Italian expresso bars--what a wonderful place.

I put on my best knee brace (is that like a best outfit?) and we walked around for a bit. Then we went over to a large indoor mall called the Eaton Centre to get an accessory for hubby's I-phone. As you can see from the pictures, these two places are worlds apart, despite the fact that there's only about a 10-minute drive between them.

In the evening, we went out for supper at one of my favourite local restaurants. I had grilled asparagus and a huge plate of seafood (mussels, jumbo shrimp and calamari) with risotto. Half the entree came home with me and I had it for lunch today. Yummy. We also ordered one slice of apple pie and one piece of a decadent chocolate cake between the four of us. Double yummy.

It was a nice day.

  1. Hi Wendy. Belated Birthday Wishes to you!

    Glad you had a lovely day and were able to walk around and enjoy the very different atmospheres and areas of town.

    Sounds like a fabulous meal - but then I love seafood. I also love chocolate ;)

  6. So glad you had an enjoyable day Wendy. I really admire the way you are so determined not to let your knee problems beat you. You are an inspiration - and reminder to those of us who CAN walk and jog how lucky we are.
