I had a great day with Tracy wandering about Kensington Market yesterday. We managed a quick catch up on 20 years of missed experiences, had lunch, pie, and took photos of a car filled with plants and dirt and a couple of cats. We both posted photos to our Facebook pages and the conclusion I’ve come up with is we are still the same nutjobs we were in grade 8. Happy day!
It was a gorgeous day and Kensington Market had loads of people shopping and sightseeing. We visited a bike store (because I have a bike addiction), store that sold hats and purses (because Tracy has a purse addiction), Courage My Love to try on my hats and 1940s style gloves (and I tried on a lucha libre wrestling mask. It was surprisingly comfortable), a chocolate store (both of us are addicted) and then we settled with a couple of slices of pie on the patio of Wanda’s Pie in the Sky.
A really good use for a car
Bubbles! Gotta love bubbles!
I had the chocolate pecan pie, Tracy had the mango cheesecake.
The pies never had a chance.
Cats are great sunworshippers. I can watch them for hours.
Today I am seeing for the first time in nearly 20 years a grade school and high school friend. We met up again on Facebook last year and we are finally seeing each other. This should be neat!
I first met Tracy back in grade 8 on the first day of school at St. Maria Goretti school in Scarborough. We were both new registrants and I had a policy of sticking with the fellow new kids. By about grade eleven we’d gone our separate ways but I always had happy feeling for Tracy. She was a cheerful, smiling, laughing, chatty kid and after only talking online (I’m so bad with my cellphone) it sounds like she’s become a cheerful, smiling, laughing chatty woman. Yay!
Tracy is also on my blogroll because she has a blog where she shares a photo and a glimpse into her day.
Today we are meeting at Union Station in downtown Toronto and heading up to Kensington Market. I’ll bring my camera and share my photos later with details of our day.
My favourite tshirt is ready for another bike ride.
Thanks to modern laundry technology (laundry spray) my favourite tshirt is Powerade stain free and ready to wear on my next bike ride (today!).
I am a happy happy woman.
