An homage to René Magritte. This is actually a cupcake in the form of a cake. So maybe it is a cake?

Ari’s new turtle hasn’t been seen for a couple days; It seems the trip from his tank at the mall with his buddies to here was a bit traumatic. While he might not be terribly intelligent, he is an excellent hider. So good, in fact, that I spent a while this morning pulling plants out [...]
I was inspired today by a post on foodgawker for apple crumble. Or is it crisp? Then I thought, well hey, it’s summer and Ontario peaches are taking over the universe, why not use them? So I went to the store and got a basket of them, some raspberries (non-Ontario, or non-tario) and a bunch [...]
So, not taking anything away from dead squirrels, but the sky on my way out of the subway today was incredible. I don’t think I’ve ever seen clouds quite like this before.
As always, when I see roadkill, my first reaction is to say “Oh, that’s not a smart place for a nap!” And, as always with roadkill, my other reaction is to shriek and jump to the side. I had my wits about me (and my camera with me) so I took a couple snaps of [...]

It’s been bloody hot here in Toronto, as everyone seems to be talking about. Then the sky turned black and it rained. Oh, did I say ‘rained’? It fucking bucketed down. It still smells like garbage strike here so any and all rain is embraced by me. Then the rain stopped and blue sky rolled [...]
This summer we’ve been on the go constantly, it seems. We stayed at yet another hotel for 2 nights and I think I may be maxed out on my love of all things hotel. Honestly, I sleep better in my own bed with just Shannon. At least then I can poke him and he rolls [...]
Seems every time I meet a baby I think that THIS is the best baby ever. And then I meet a newer one and I think it all over again-sort of like Artie Lange who always says the same thing about the Miss Howard TV. Anyway, I really did meet the best baby ever this [...]
