Love is in the air today and we are breathing deeply while the radiant Sun aligns with sensual Venus in arduous Aries. However, retrograde Venus requires us to reconsider unresolved issues while the Aries energy wants us to move forward. Nevertheless, the Moon's shift into idealistic Pisces at 6:06 am EDT enchants us with unrealized potential everywhere we look. However, we won't see true progress unless we're willing to make a commitment.

You might do a double take when a close friend blurts out something you didn't see coming. You're likely to react quickly, which could exacerbate an already precarious interaction. Although you don't have a crystal ball to predict the future, checking your ego at the door and being receptive to another person's opinions is the shortest route to resolution. Respect is a two-way street, but often one person has to make the first move.

Welcome to the Kasbah!

Today went by very quickly. It was almost a surprise that we were going to be dining out at the Kasbah restaurant located in the downtown of Ottawa. We had to go back a block from the busstop and three blocks east of Bank Street. It was easy to find and the owner was very polite and waited on our long table personally.

The menus had Moroccan language surrounding key English words to suggest what the meals were based around. Chicken and lamb were the main dishes served with mild cumin spice. The aromas were definitely not familiar when the serving plates were presented. Small plates were for buttering bread and the steaming hot covered bowls were centered on the table in front of each person.

My choice of meal was tagines Marrakech while Peter ordered tagines Zayane. My meal highlighted chicken, almonds and prunes while Peter had lamb, almonds and prunes. Both meals were delicious and filling, with no room left over for a dessert. Most desserts featured almonds and honey pastries. It is definitely a restaurant to return to return to for fine eats and just as fine service!

We took a shortcut down a back alley to end up at a bus stop at the next street. It was only a matter of a few minutes before a bus came along and picked us up to go directly to our home mall bus stop. At home it was all we could do to flop down into bed for the night. I know I slept well with dreams of far away Morocco wandering through my thoughts.
