And I can’t remember how to stop it… you’ll just have to deal with it until I fiddle around and find that magical switch to turn it off.
So… I’ve been back 2 weeks and have been terribly blog-silent, what have I been doing?
You might’ve seen me mention it in earlier posts, but home renovations took up quite a bit of time! Does it count if you’re not tearing down walls? Because I didn’t do that this time.
Our living room: Before
Our living room: After
Not too shabby? I am amazed I put this together without:
- Destroying it
- Having it fall on top of me
- It being crooked!
I’ve also helped my brother with his bedroom but it’s still full of his unorganized junk, so no pictures for now!
What else – I FINALLY had Tim Hortons!
Look at the glorious selection (or at least what’s available at 8pm). A dozen donuts for approx $7 – apple fritters, I have missed you!
Even better that this Timmies is just on the corner of my street.
Yum, makes me so happy! Got some apple fritters, blueberry fritters, apple cinnamon with jelly filling, Boston creams, blueberry/strawberry jelly-filled, maple cream, yum!
We also had (really simple) Subway dinner with my grandparents on the evening of his 79th birthday (Nov 24)
My sister brought her turtle, Franklin, over to visit my grandparents after dinner 😛
The next day, Nov 25, we celebrated his birthday with the entire family!
The birthday man!
Giving our cards and gifts
Having lots of fun playing Articulate (came all the way from Australia!) after cake 🙂
AYCE sushi with my family on November 28th at Sushi Kan!
Mmm, green tea ice cream
RANDOM! My new favourite combination: goat cheese (herb flavour) with blueberry jam – delicious! And bagels! Australia! Why you no have delicious bagels?!
Met up with Bea on Friday, Nov 30 for lunch at Bobby’s Table. Good company and good food in a homely and friendly little place!
And then for dinner met up with the girls for sushi at Genji – delicious! So nice to catch up with Ruixi (and hear all about her engagement!), Julia, Atong and Alyssa – you girls make me laugh non stop – love you guys!
BONUS! My brother’s ugly face 🙂
Okay, I should go pack now… flying to Halifax tomorrow morning! 🙂
