So, I don’t know if you remember our car fiasco from last year. The time when our car broke down en route to Toronto, the day before starting my first day at work. It was due to an electrical problem and we eventually drove it into the ground, necessitating being towed to the dealer for a paltry trade-in value.

We bought a new fuel-efficient car and figured we were all set.

I am holding onto summer as long as possible.

Just as I am keeping up with the salads as we roll into October.

Rob started a new experiment last week: Bring back the homemade lunches.
