Moving is Never Boring

We've survived the heat. Didn't think we were going to when we woke up the next morning and at 9:00 am the Humidex was reading 38 degrees already! But that afternoon all the humidity brought a thunder/rain storm that cleared the air and has brought temps back to a reasonable 25-30ish. Feels great.

Our little girl is making some serious progress on the moving front too. She has been able to get up on her hands and knees and rock back and forth - crawling is coming soon! She also has started moving like crazy even in her sleep, resulting in some odd contortions.

I've been able to meet some great "beer guys" here and have been treated to some amazing goodies that they've been able to stockpile. Last week the highlight was this beer, The Abyss from Deschutes in Oregon.

Rated currently #4 in the world on Beer Advocate. Difficult to find (re: limited release). Silky smooth with a viscous body. Lots of roasting malts and dark chocolate - just insanely good.

Not only that but I've been able to get some great bottles for my cellar so when the peeps come visit something special can come out. Now if that's not incentive to visit us in Toronto, I don't know what is!

Lastly, and perhaps least boring of all, was this afternoon. We were out working in the tragic mess that is our back yard and we found these little gems hiding in between the fence slats near the house.

The last owner's security system? Neighborhood boys stockpiling for gang wars? Last owner was an accomplished knife-thrower who misplaced a couple? Guess we'll never know...

Great shots of Daija--hilarious!

That beer looks great. I need to hit that website more often to find me some treats! Just so you know, the missus and I will be out there next June. I realize that's a long time from now, but wanted to give you the heads up!
