Snoozin’ at the Toronto Zoo

I went to the Toronto Zoo on Saturday figuring everyone else would be at the CNE and that was a good call. Having purchased a season’s pass for the family, we decided to investigate smaller portions of the zoo and not kill ourselves trying to see all of the 287 hectares. So, on this particular trek to the zoo, we decided to go to the Canadian area and let me tell you, from the beginning it went downhill until it was an uphill hike in the scorching heat. In the middle it was a snooze-fest in more than one way.

Here’s the Canadian checklist:

At the Harbourfront Centre Outdoor Market

So closes the first day of the Harbourfront Outdoor Market. I’m bushed. We’ll be at this wonderful market down by the lake from 12-12 on Saturday, tomorrow…er…I guess it’s today! Wow, it’s late. And again on Sunday from 12-8.

We’re showcasing our new series of Prints and they are AWESOME! Along with our postcards, notecards, Christmas cards and magnets, we’ve also got a great selection of Wendy Tancock whimsical Canadiana line: her prints, cards, mugs and coin banks.

Don’t forget to come down at pick up a copy of the Little Book of Rob Ford, a collection of quotes of our readin’-while-drivin’ one-term mayor. Don’t judge me!
Be sure to follow our twitter feed for up to the minute…who am I kidding, I’ll tweet if there is something worth tweeting.
See you there.
