On Wednesdays, wonder, and walnuts

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
- Leonard Cohen, Anthem

YOUGUYS. It's Wednesday here and I'm in my favourite spot on the rug in front of the fire and I've caught up on emails and prepped dinner and I get a quiet night in before the rest of the week kicks off with a Guild dinner and a brewery birthday party and then the weekend, crazy on its own for existing. We're planning on spending Sunday afternoon wandering through Victoria Park's Winterville, so join us if you're around and want to eat pies and spin on rides until you get sick. I'm also getting us tickets to the Circus just to capture the full terrifying experience of so much wonder.

I'm making a Brain Food meal tonight since Wolf has his last MBA exam tomorrow and I want to make sure he goes in at his mental peak rather than in the sluggish state I usually equip him with thanks to a steady diet of pasta and cream. We're having salmon with blueberries and avocado and walnuts and feta and lots of greens and according to the internets this will make him a regular Einstein. For breakfast he's getting a red pepper scramble with a side of cottage cheese, blueberries and whole grain toast. All this is guaranteed to help him ace his test. Superfoods, amirite?

I leave you now with this photo of our neighborhood bus stop, because it shows a lot of what our neighbourhood is like and also it's just pretty:
Do you think she'll be my friend?

Okay, I'm off to enjoy my last hour of solitude before dinner. Wish Wolf luck tomorrow!

Big hugs and lots of love,
