Day 1: Wednesday had lunch with BG at Artisano Cafe on Islington Ave, a favourite haunt. Had their yummy beet, walnut and goat cheese salad. BG and I met at York University in 1991. I enjoyed our chat, especially hearing about her kids' recent successes.
Day 2: Thursday went to see "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" with JC at the Kingsway Theatre. Fabulous film filled with vibrant scenes of India and superbly acted by a stellar British cast. Nice to see Bill Nighy NOT play the villain. JC and I met in 1989 - our sons were in junior kindergarten together. She's looking forward to a trip to visit her daughter who's studying in Switzerland.
Day 3: Friday had a sumptuous dinner on BJL's new deck. Excellent food, conversation and ambience. Met BJL in 1988 when our eldest kids were in grade one together. Wondering which of their sons will marry first - it's going to be a close call.

Painty McGee's. Yesterday we had our first kids art drop in. All of the children enjoyed their crafts and asked if they could come back another day. We made firework watching glasses, buttons and pinwheels. Many parents asked about future workshops and classes for adults. Good times.
