my balcony plants are thriving in this heat! it looks like i'll be able to harvest a lot of tomatoes, despite having a north facing balcony that gets direct sunlight only at the end of the day.

unfortunately the heat that is so good for my plants is sending ontario's electricity suppliers into overdrive. on a daily basis we hear news about exceeding our electricity kilowatt usage and the threat of a blackout. i have to admit i was wishfully hoping out loud that toronto would have another major blackout. sadly my neighbour told me that during the previous blackout many people who were trying to live independent lives, but were dependent on life support systems, died! i am now in search for an alternate validated reason to be sent home from work.

illo friday time again! this week's topic: metropolitan.

this week's idea was inspired by a new yoga studio i went to several weeks ago in the middle of downtown toronto. the studio is lit by natural light via huge windows, however, the windows face an old brick building - so very urban, yet very relaxing.
