Summer officially came to Toronto last weekend and it then flipped back to spring and rained most of this week but before the rain I managed to summerize the patio. It’s a small 2Mx2M triangle jutting off my apartment that used to be home to a few empty pots and a dead plant left by the last tenant. Now it’s an urban oasis with a couple camping chairs, some geraniums and pansies and a camping BBQ. On the grill Saturday night, 14 floors up with a view of the CN Tower (that's it in the background) were some nicely marinated steaks, grilled eggplant with parmesan and peaches and cream corn.
I must confess to being a little nervous about bothering my neighbours with the rather large amount of smoke that pours off while grilling marinated steaks. I’m also not sure if there are any laws against grilling 14 stories up? Luckily we had made a stop by the LCBO to pick up a few interesting beers so I wasn’t too worried about it by the time the meat hit the grill. Mmmmmm, my urban patio is shaping up nicely.
Sweet Home on the Praries
The last couple of weeks have been very full hence the blog neglect. I headed back to my Alberta roots for the first time since leaving more than 6 months ago. It was nice to be back, though for a sad occasion. I forgot how much open space there is and how amazing it feels to look out and see for miles instead looking out to see the apartments across from me as happens in Toronto. It was nice to be back and see my friends and it made me think, I don’t want to live in Alberta anymore but I do need to visit.
