Am I ever glad it’s FRIDAY!!! What a long and exhausting week. The weather is gorgeous here in Toronto, Canada- 19 degrees and sunny today- people are driving around with their tops down on their cars and cranking the tunes. Ahhh. A taste of summer. It almost made my 1 hour drive home in rush hour traffic pleasant.

My workout was great this morning before work. I did 40 mins. hill walking and running on the treadmill, followed by 24 flights of stairs up to my condo (approx 4 mins or so more). When I made it up to our floor, I was pleasantly surprised by Hubby just heading out on his way to work! I wasn’t expecting to see him leave so I was happy. I gave him a quick peck on the cheek and skipped the hug since I didn’t want him to get covered in my sweaty workout clothes.

A few spooky Halloween pictures….

HAPPY HALLOWEEN from Sketchie, our strange and festive Bengal cat.

More strangeness. Canadian weather.

Oct 29, 2008- Looking out from our balcony, we woke up to SNOW.

Oct 31, 2008- 19 degrees Celcius and SUNNY!

Well, Eric is almost home from work. I guess we better figure out what we are going to do on this fabulous Halloween evening!

What wonderful milestones! Congrats on both your gorgeous cookbook cover (can’t WAIT to get it!) and 5 years of blogging. Your photos and recipes are always a great inspiration to me.

I can relate to the strange Canadian weather being from Toronto! Thank you for always inspiring me through your recipes and posts! I can’t wait to order your cookbook once it is out! Congratulations on all your success! :)

I just wanted to post my note here, because this is where it all began for you. I just got done looking through my Oh She Glows cookbook. It’s like a work of art! You are an inspiration and by far the best blogger out there! Many months ago I was referred to your blog from a mom on a nut free Facebook page. I was looking for vegan recipes but wanted nut free ones because my soon-to-be five-year-old daughter has a tree nut allergy. I didn’t know how to adapt vegan recipes to be nut free. THANK YOU for helping me make vegan dishes that are nut free and delicious! I can’t wait to make more…and maybe one day go full-on vegan. …. and run my first 5k! Many goals ahead for this mommy of two little girls. Thank you again for all that you do!

Hi congratulations on being an expecting mom. I recently bought your book and love it! Thank you.

Love your book and blog! I just wanted to see where it all started, and here it is. We’ve loved to make the chickpea salad sandwich recipe for our summer guests over the past few years. Thanks for making such cool recipes that have helped me and my family along on our healthy eating journey!
