scenes from my weekend

getting lost in the country | goodies at the Christie Antique Market
incredible fireworks from our balcony

Justin was working evenings last week (ie: he would leave for work at 5:30 and I’d arrive home at 6) which meant we were literally on opposite schedules for days on end. Feeling slightly disconnected as a result, we made an effort to spend the entire weekend together to make up for lost time. We managed to accomplish a number of activities that had been on our to do list including taking in a Tiff film (no star sightings though – unless George Stroumboulopoulos counts?), visiting the Christie antique market and dinner at a ramen noodle bar that I’d been eager to try. On Saturday evening, after a long day, we decided to keep it low-key and hang out in our pjs with a movie. Midway through the movie, fireworks began going off right outside our window. We quickly headed out to the balcony, blanket in hand, and spent a solid twenty minutes taking in what was easily one of the most amazing firework display I’ve ever seen. We’re still unsure where they came from and what they were for (Tiff maybe?) but it only further solidified our love for this incredible city.

    I think I might steal your polka dot top. You’re lucky I live on the other side of the world :)

    In unrelated news, has anyone mentioned that your RSS feed doesn’t display images anymore? This is a fairly recent phenomenon. Maybe you set it up that way? I doalways click in to see the post on your proper website anyway but just thought you should know!

      That’s very strange – I’ll look into that! Despite blogging for 2.5 years I’m still a bit of a newbie – sometimes I play around with settings and have no idea what I’m actually doing haha
      Thanks for letting me know!

  4. Sounds and looks like the most relaxing weekend. I wish we had a Ramen noodle bar, here!

    One of the most annoying things is to be off schedule. Glad you had a nice weekend!
