Ah, Toronto, how I’ve missed you!
This weekend has been so nice and relaxing. I got in last night at 8:30 and met up with a friend for a drink to catch up before taking the train into Oakville to stay with my parents for the weekend.
When I got in last night, the office, formerly known as my room was all set up and waiting for me:
Despite the air mattress, I got a good night’s sleep and stumbled down to wish my brother a good day at work and this:
There aren’t many things I regret in life, but part of me is wistful that I never really got to enjoy living at home post-college. Literally, the weekend following my graduation I started a job in Montreal, so I’m always super happy whenever I get the opportunity to spend a week or a weekend at home. It makes you appreciate the finer thing in life like a well-stocked fridge you didn’t have to stock and breakfast you didn’t have to buy:
Following my breakfast my Mom and I spent the day together running a series of errands, chatting by the pool with a superb veggie tray prepared by yours truly:
And then I helped her with some PR stuff my parents’ golf club. Oh and I was hired on as my parents photographer for their house they may or may not be selling. Only if they find the “right” place, I’m told. Is anyone in the market for nice 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house in Bronte area of Oakville?
Anyway post-photo shoot we had a fabulous meal that I kind of forgot to photograph, this is all I’ve got to show for it:
I swear the wine was excellent and mushrooms went supremely well with the snowpeas that went un-pictured.
Anyway, it’s now 10:00pm and my family, though we love to wine and dine, tires out quickly and so we’ve all turned in for the night. I’m going to snuggle up with Eat, Pray, Love- yes I’ve jumped on the bandwagon, and yes, I’m enjoying it so far.
Bonne nuit mes amis!
