If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning, I’d tell you how amazing my Canada Day was. My friend has an apartment on Clarence Street in the Byward Market and through an awesome party complete with Canada trivia, sangria and delicious snacks. It was definitely one for the books. Canada Day is one of my favourite holidays (although I am not impressed to have had to go to work this morning).
If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d announce that summer has officially begun only because Big Brother is on! Honestly, it doesn’t feel like summer until it starts. It’s one of my favourite shows ever and I just love how it’s on three times a week. My Other Half and I watch it together and normally cheer for different sides of the house. I can’t believe it’s season 15! Right now, I obviously like Elissa (Rachel’s sister).
If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d tell you my intake of Thai food has sky rocketed lately. It might be because I love this little place close to my work (Baan Thai) so much. I also went to Khao Thai (our favourite Thai spot in Ottawa) for girls’ night last week and made yellow curry as my Canada Day potluck item (multicultural, right?). I’m probably going to order Thai takeout for lunch today too. Yum.
If we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d tell you how freakin’ busy I was last week. I ran around the city doing a billion things – renewing my passport, fixing watches and iPads, getting a new health card, going to the doctor and optometrist, and buying new batteries for our alarm system. I barely had a free moment! Thankfully I squeezed in a couple relaxing baths and a good book.
Now that I mention it, if we were chatting over a cup of tea, I’d tell you how I finally finished To Kill a Mockingbird and I loved it! It was slow in the beginning but it got really good around the middle. What a sweet story. Now I’m reading Fall On Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald. It’s my friend Laura’s favourite book and it’s set in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. So far, so good!
