Tennis Friday morning - quite cool but we had a surprisingly good turnout, at least a dozen people. By the time we stopped, around 11:30, the sun was out and the temperature had risen. In the evening we attended the Don Mills banquet at the Donalda Club. What a magnificent place! It's truly mind blowing how the "other half" live. The meal was buffet style with lots of interesting dishes and delicious desserts. I left quite early, once the dancing started but had an enjoyable evening with other "Kaffeeclatchers".

Tennis for an hour this morning but it was cool again so the courts weren't busy. Chan, Iona and I hit for about an hour but only one other court was filled. It almost felt like the end of the season but I hope there's lots more tennis still to come.
This afternoon I cleaned and backwashed the pool, getting ready for closing next Saturday. The water is really cool now and I doubt I will be in again. I also tidied the borders around the pool to prepare for the cover going on - still a bit more cleanup needed before Saturday but at least I have the bins filled for pickup on Wednesday. I barbecued a steak last night (first time this summer) and had some of the leftover meat in a bun for lunch - seriously delicious with lots of mustard and horseradish. Also lots of cherry tomatoes from the garden on the side. I can barely keep up with the output of my tomato plants. Tonight it's salmon and quinoa with green beans,
