This morning, my sisters, my niece, my boyfriend and I went to St. Lawrence Market. Despite having lived in Toronto on and off for almost seven years, I had never been until I took my sick leave. It was only then that I was able to make time on a weekday, and didn't have to worry about contracting some awful cold from the throngs of people there on the weekends.
This resolution is the first of many that requires a weekday commitment. On a random Thursday, or even a Friday, I highly recommend taking a vacation day or just forfeiting that day's pay, and taking the time to take in the sights and delicious delights at St. Lawrence Market - or any market near you! You'll be surprised at the inspiration you take away for your at-home culinary creations, or if you're like me and don't do much of that cooking stuff, you'll have your pick of spanakopita, peameal bacon on a bun, gourmet cheeses, or fresh fruits from around the world. There's no way you could leave unsatisfied.
Sure, you could go on a weekend. But I suspect you may leave wondering about all the things you didn't get a chance to see. Go on a weekday, get a coffee, and take your time. That's what we did today. And let me assure you, work was the farthest thing from my mind while I was there!
Isn't that a reason to go in itself?
