Canada Day, etc.

Sam on the back deck

For those of us in Canada today is Canada Day, which is exciting for some people, somewhat interesting for others, and a pretty big pain in the butt for me. See, we live downtown in the capital city of the country, close enough to where the Canada Day action is to have people park in front of our driveway, set off fireworks in the park across the street, and, for the grand finale, barf on our lawn. Because of all that, Sacha (who is afraid of fireworks) and I are going off to my folks' house for a one night retreat.

I have no new recipes to post this week, I apologize. Things in the non-internet world have been demanding my attention. I'll get back on it next week. In the meantime, please go over to Sew Green and check out my latest post. It's about packing garbage-less lunches to take to work. I review some different glass storage containers and show off my awesome cutlery holder. You might dig it.

Tomorrow is a much grander holiday, that being The Birthday of The Man of Science. Woo hoo! No better reason to celebrate than him being born, I say. There will be presents, and burritos, and a trip to the drive-in theatre. I can't wait!

We're brand new to eating vegan (going on 7 days!), and I'm pumped to have found your blog - loving the recipes you have posted, can't wait to try some of them out. Thanks for the inspiration :-)

I think I am in love with your cat. Red is definitely his colour. I so like that he has a filter on him to tune out all of life's crap. This is why cats are good. They know how to keep it simple. Keep it real. Yes, I do believe I am in love with your cat.

Foodie: She's actually a lady cat, but I'm sure she thanks you for your affection!
