Genes for Good Hair and Bad Temper

Genes for Good Hair and Bad Temper
I have been blessed with good hair and bad temper genes. If you interrupt me to to discuss the former while I am trying to stop my groceries from spilling all over the road, you will likely trigger the later. Here’s what happened. As I was packing up my bike with a huge load of groceries, I hear a voice: “Is that your natural hair?” I look up [...]

Choices–Live Below The Line

Choices–Live Below The Line
When you are doing a poverty or hunger challenge like Live Below The Line and shopping for 5 days food with only $8.75 per person you don’t think you have a lot of choices. But you do.  Especially here in downtown Toronto where it’s a short walk to 7 or more grocery stores, 2 major markets, 2 Chinatowns and countless corner stores. You can ch [...]

I Spy With My Little Eye

I Spy With My Little Eye
Here are few of the small remarkable things I saw today when I ventured out of my home onto the streets of Toronto. I saw shoes on sale, with taxes, for less than $5! Shoes that fit my size 10 feet and are if not exactly what I was looking for close enough. Woo hoo! I saw piles of people wandering aimlessly through the Eaton Centre bumping i [...]

Beadery – shopping with mom for her ingredients.
The Beadery in Queen West shopping with mom for her ingredients. It’s only fair since I made her shop with me for mine. Besides she makes such beautiful jewelery with these beads and gives much of it to me!

Retailers Taking Liberties.

Retailers Taking Liberties.
I can’t tell which is worse: the one who groped my breasts when I was trying on the dress, or the one giving me diet advice when I went in for alterations. Both invasive and rude in their own special ways.

Longo’s: A night of Taste Ontario Taste the World
When I was invited by Longo’s to be a Taste Ontario Ambassador in August I started working on Taste Ontario, Taste the World.  I wanted to showcase Ontario ingredients from a World Cuisine perspective by hosting a cooking demo/dinner for some of Toronto’s foodies, bloggers, influencers and twitterati. A perfect fit for the range a [...]

Giveaway: Bag of Longo’s Goodies
As part of the Taste Ontario Ambassador Series I asked Longo’s to make it possible for me to share my tastes and experiences with you guys through a monthly giveaway of some of the Taste Ontario produce and Longo’s products. Of course I don’t have enough to give everyone (wouldn’t that be nice!), so I’ll be having a monthly contest and pickin [...]

Lex & Kris Go Shopping

Lex & Kris Go Shopping
Mom does all the trying on, I sit and photograph her. Until they tell me I’m not allowed to take photos in Kaliyana. Oops. An interesting note: Kaliyana‘s tag line is “Unique clothes for women – most guys just don’t get it – “ Though truthfully sometimes even daughters don’t get it. Their stuff [...]

Kingston Farmers Market

Kingston Farmers Market
When I was home, Di & Deb picked me up early Saturday morning for a visit to the Kingston Farmers Market. What great fun we had visiting old friends like Clark & Sue and checking out the cool foods. As with most Farmers Markets this is evolving quickly into a place to go and eat as well as shop.

5YAT: 24 Hours Ashore
20 December, 2004 – Snowy & Blowy & Grey [This post is part of the 5 Years Ago Today Series] Ack!  Dark! Though it is 0530. Happy I found the head light. Breakfast for me and the animals, packing and then strapped on the sled and started trudging (0715). [view of the island from the glen-shore as the sun started peeking up] Crossing [...]

Hello My Darling…

Hello My Darling…
Hello My Darling… — Originally uploaded by LexnGer I picked up this crazy frog pendant at Sunday’s PS Kensington. It’s hand carved from coconut shell and it reminds me so much of the Warner Brothers Dancing Frog that I burst into song every time I look at it.

Are There Cretons In Toronto?
I just got a note from a friend asking if I knew where to get cretons in Toronto. I don’t. Do you?

New Glasses for 2000

New Glasses for 2000
New Glasses — Originally uploaded by LexnGer I had intended to carefully select the 2000th photo to load to my flickr photostream. Something beautiful, inspired, and significant. Instead, whatever ailment currently has me in it’s grips has caused me to load photos willy-nilly and you get an off-kilter photo of one of my new pai [...]

Where’s My Alien?

Where’s My Alien?
Bick Aliens? I don't know if you have been following my obsession with spokescreatures this year, but I have had a crush on the Bicks Pickle Alien for months now. So imagine my disappointment when I find that the little plushies attached to the Bicks Pickle jars in the market aren't him.  Really, why would you invest [...]
