Today we had lunch with a couple of friends at The Cakery. Unfortunately, The Cakery will be closing its doors next weekend. It was one of our favourite places, and they also were the ones who did our wedding cake.
The original theme for today was fire. Yeah, there was no way I going to do that.
When Summer lies upon the world, and in a noon of gold, Beneath the roof of sleeping leaves the dreams of trees unfold;
When woodland halls are green and cool, and wind is in the West, Come back to me! Come back to me, and say my land is best! ― J.R.R. Tolkien
We had a picnic at Beavertail today to celebrate my mom’s birthday. This is one of the flowers that I often see in the bushes. I see them at the beaches as well (when I go, which is not that often). I have no idea what they are but think they are quite pretty.
Sunday was Mother’s Day. We were going to go out to eat with my family, but my mom got sick. Instead of trying Ethiopian food for the first time (which I’m afraid of because it’s suppose to be spicy) we went to one of our favourite local places, The Cakery.
The Cakery are the ones who made our wedding cake, Harry’s 30th birthdaycake, hamburger cake, etc. They offer all sorts of cafe food, lots of delicious baked goods, salads, sandwiches and most days, soup and Quiche. When we went in on Sunday, I checked the board to see if there was any Quiche and Huzzah!, they still had veggie Quiche. My favourite kind of Quiche. Every time I get one, Harry says “I really need to try the Quiche it looks and smells so good.” He finally got one. Perfect combo – Quiche and Ice Tea. :)
They always give generous portions so I was all set until supper that night with Harry’s family.
