(e:Uncutsaniflush) had a whole day off work and we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and go on a mini-adventure. Yep, you guessed it. Toronto.
We drove to Burlington then caught a GO Train to Union. Picked up ourselves a day pass for the TTC (since it is March Break -- or, as it is called here, Spring Break -- we got a family pass for $8.50 for the both of us for the day).
Had lunch at Richtree Market We both had some yummy rosti potatoes, (e:Uncutsaniflush) opting for sausage and a beer with his, a salad and soda with mine.
Then, we walked a direction i rarely go -- east. Along the Esplanade to the back of the St. Lawrence Market (e:Paul), you would adore the seafood they had there. Looked super fresh.
Our destination, other than enjoying the walk, was the Distillery Historic District. I have never been there. Didn't even know it exsisted.
Lots of constrction going on in that 'hood...
But otherwise, it was so beautifully old...
The shops were prosh, but interesting. Arty, but not too snobby (huh, in Toronto, who wudda thunk it?!). I would recommed going between Wednesday and the weekend, though. We were there on a Tuesday and not a lot of the smaller art workshop / stores were open Mondays and Tuesdays.

Dude, It's Chewed!
We like the idea of having somewhere outside we can keep a bag of birdseed. We had a few mice in the autumn this year and last, so we didn't want to keep in inside. We didn't want to keep the seed in just it's bag outside, since we've seen a rat under the birdfeeder. We have also seen a hawk snag a pidgeon, so we hoped the same hawk had snagged the rat (and his rat friends).
So, we got this Rubbermaid trash can. But apparently, the rat and his rat friends can chew through it....
Or it might be squirrels...

It was a week ago today my teacher, Mark, called me to tell me i scored a 12.9 on the maths TABE and was eligible to write the Predictor. A week ago tomorrow i wrote it...
I went to school on Monday and Tuesday and another student was surprised to see me. "Didn't you write the predictor?" he asked me. "Yeah", i said, puzzled, "but if i didn't pass it, then i need to do more work and if i did, i still need to write the actual G.E.D. and either way, i need help with math." He laughed. He's a smart kid, and progessing a lot, but i think his motivation isn't quite the same as mine. Or at least, that is what he said, but in his own words, "i ain't in no hurry".
Neither am i, i reckon. I waited over 20 years to go down this road, so i guess a few more days won't kill me.
Now, no more procrasination. Math awaits...
