Home is Riderville

Resting: the Ontario tour is over and I’m now back at home with the cats and Mike, making elaborate snacks: an avocado with balsalmic vinegar + cherry tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and cracked pepper + a Gala Macintosh apple with cheddar cheese + crackers with smoked oysters with lemon juice squeezed over ’em. Tea is on the brew!

Today is the CFL Grey Cup…match? Game! Yes, game, and the two teams who’re battling for glory (rematch!) are the Montreal Alouettes and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Last year the Alouettes won due to the Riders having an extra player on the field…It is a widely accepted truth that the Riders deserved the cup last year, despite this error. The Riders have nutty fans and the team is a publicly owned franchise and something like half of the CFLs merchandise revenue is generated by Riders fans. Saskatchewan takes their game very seriously! Our apartment bleeds green as Mike is from Regina and everyone from “back home” has got the fever today so I’m wearing my best. Suggested viewing: youtube the two different Riders songs, Green is the Colour and Rider Pride

Some girls get diamonds, others Riders Centennial memorabilia.

In other news, I can’t get enough of food blogs! Especially when they blend in a bit of style and culture such as this blog DARLING I SAID // DARLING I SAID. We’re giving her ‘soup for evey meal’ a try for breakfast tomorrow.

She says: "MISO, SHREDDED CABBAGE, HARD BOILED EGG, SESAME OIL (REGULAR + A DASH OF HOT)" and "SUNFLOWER SEEDS + HOT WATER ADDED + STIRRED "

On our supply run today, I dropped into the Verdun friperie and picked up an animal print sweater (very clingy and warm) as well as a floaty white lace dress…can’t seem to get enough of them! I’ll never have too many lacy, white frocks to froth around in. They pick up stage lights quite nicely, to boot.

SPICY vs. SWEET

Final thoughts: I hope our American friends had a lovely Thanksgiving. I also hope for all this North Korea stuff to work out as peacefully as possible. I’m looking forward to writing songs this week with Erin as well as Channukah celebrations on the weekend, and then Christmas festivities after that! I have a large, multi-part family, given and chosen, and we have many traditions that start pretty much right away!
