A day in moderation July 21 2012 The day began as many do. I woke up. A large cat, gently whacked me with her tail and discussed how she should be paid attention to and most importantly fed. I tip toed around to explore the depth of my mild hangover and slowly pulled myself together to go off into my day. Hang over and wobbly warped rear tire and all I cycled off through the set up for yet another Toronto street festival. Off to push myself through a workout at the gym while listening to to Ted talk radio hour. Today’s program as I lifted heavy things and put them down again was about crowds. From how applause happens to Internet usage and staged pranks from Improv Everywhere. Like most of the TED programming it was informative clever and interesting.(All things really lacking at the gym). Back onto the bike for a slow leisurely ride to Kensington Market . I locked up wandered through the market and over to KOS at Nassau and Bellevue for way too much food in the “Can’t talk eating ” breakfast.
Eggs,bacon, home fries and pancakes out on a breezy patio. After breakfast I wandered the market and picked up groceries.
Cycled down to queen to pick up fabric to make a scarf to keep the sun off my neck. Up towards home the street fair was up and running so I walked my bike through that.
After laying down for a bit I made a fruit salad full of pineapple, mango,strawberries papaya and a few cherries. Then sliced up vegetables to make a grilled ratatouille.
Both to share this evening at the Dream in High Park. Where Canadian Stage is running a Midsummer Nights Dream.
The Dream in High Park was pretty great. Ran into some friends and found a little place to park ourselves. The play itself was fun. The set was curiously sparse and some of the characterisations were hilarious. The show ended just as the bugs came out for a nibble and we all wandered out of the park. In an uncharacteristic turn I skipped the pub and went home to rest after a typical day in our beautiful city.
