How can sleep be so elusive...I have no answer for this but know that many ofyou spend many hours trying to fall alseep. It does not seem to matter how tired you just doesn't come. Whatever happened to those delicious sleeps of our younger days. Oh I can sleep all morning, just have falling asleep issues. Sometimes I will read, sometimes toss and turn with a tortured mind, sometimes I will get up and play. This is how I end up with journal pages. I have 2 journals on go, one with just text and the other..the one above where anything goes.

A Good Read

I cannot imagine life without the love of reading. As I always told my children,if you have the love of reading you will never be totally alone unless you choose to be. Reading has enriched my life in so many ways. Learning, entertainment, compassion, understanding are just a few.

Today I finshed Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. 534 pages of immersion in the life of another soul, another culture....pure bliss, a first novel, a great writer.

Definitely worth a look if you are in the mood for a book!

York St Kitchen aka YSK

My favourite sandwich spot in Statford, eat in or take out, the line ups are long at times for take out but it is worth it. This is a funky little place with painted brick walls and fabulous sandwiches on yummy breads. One of my faves is Thai Chicken Salad and be sure to order a side of dill pickles!
