My Perfect Saturday: Kathleen Wynne (Illustration by Adam Cruft)
 

“The first thing I do in the morning is read the newspapers; I get the Star and the Globe. Then I like to go for a run for about 40 minutes. I try to do a couple of five– or 10K races during the running season. My favourite routes are through Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens (2901 Yonge St.) or Sherwood Park (190 Sherwood Ave.). In the morning, it’s just the dog-walkers and me. On Saturdays, my granddaughters will come to visit; Olivia is four and Claire is one. The playground in Wanless Park (250 Wanless Ave.) is great. We’ll get something to eat at Hazel’s Diner (3401 Yonge St., 416-850-0121)—my usual is granola with yogurt and fruit, a glass of orange juice and a cup of mint tea. Then we’ll run some errands. First to Sheridan Nurseries (2827 Yonge St., 416-481-6429) to pick up some flowers. My partner, Jane, likes to garden; we make the choices together, but she does the planting. Then we’ll go to David Findlay (2585 Yonge St., 416-544-0815), the Canadian designer’s shop where I get most of my suits. For dinner, we’ll head to The Abbot (3367 Yonge St., 416-544-9074), a low-key, family-oriented pub. I usually watch the news at night to catch up on what’s been happening. I start and end each day with the news. It’s been that way forever.”
