be still: week two.

I wrote half a post yesterday Saturday and Sunday. This is the reason that in order to blog you can’t just “be a blogger” and you have to do things. And now it’s Monday Tuesday and Monday’s post isn’t up. (I am not even “trying too hard” here, I am just not trying.)

I mean, on Saturday I did have the joy of going to The Keg steakhouse as a vegetarian, but the fact that the desserts are delicious (and I did not even take a picture of them. I say them but they were shared.) does not rectify the fact that there is not even so much as pasta and marinara on the menu.

Anyways, pictures (or lack-there-of of dessert pictures) from the week.

Week 2.

Canadian things. With my cousin Dean.

Week 2

Walking in -23 for poutine…

Week 2

Yes. There is ice. In my hair. From returning from walking for poutine.

(Other Canadian things include the fact that I live in walking distance from poutine. Which is actually a problem but less of a problem than I thought.)

Week 2

I got home to mail from my friend Dia! EXCITING.

Week 2

My friend Simi got me into this British talk-show host named Jeremy Kyle.
(He’s like Maury but there’s less Not-Father dancing and more “Is my mum” [with a u] “trying to murder me?” and “Which of my children stole my iPhone”.
There are a lot of lie detectors and DNA tests, though. 

He has a book. So I bought it because I have this shiny-ness.

Week 2

Also purchased with said Indigo card:

Week 2

These were in my package from Dia…

Week 2

…They are ridiculously delicious. 

Week 2

This is as much a lie as the Canada Warm truck I see on occasion. IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER.

It’s pink though. I saw the top (sans words) from my kitchen and I had to investigate (without going outside. Obviously. Because Warm Home.)

Week 2

My friend Riki was cleaning out her room. And texting me pictures of things she thought I might like.

This hat? Obviouslyyyy.

Week 2

…MONEY!

(The Canadian government sends GST rebates if you, like me, make less than a certain amount of money. They also keep telling me I need to enrol in direct deposit, which I do, but also that will totally ruin the joy of GST cheques.)

Week 2

Dia is working very hard to get me to embrace the moleskine planner (red). I do enjoy the moleskine notebooks, but as I wrote at the beginning of the month, sometimes I feel like notebooks are too nice and I need to be super intentional with them. (Which is ridiculous really. It’s paper.)

Anyways, I’m really trying here. Except 90% of the time I put stuff in Google Calendar and then into the Moleskine. Is that proper?

Week 2

I was playing with the slow shutter app. Apparently I need work at this because… what?

Week 2

Also regarding Dia, because she loves smores.

Also I did not get the smores ones, but I did get mini-donuts as a reward for going to the Kitchen, Bath and Reno(vation, not Nevada) Show with my mom on Saturday.

Week 2

Sleepy Pikachu Pebble face.

(He doesn’t always sleep. Just at nighttime.)

Week 2

Oh, that’s pretty.

Week 2

My Slicecream looks like a bear.

You can see it, right? Sam suggested Bear in the Big Blue House.

Week 2

I briefly tried to 12 of 12 today. And failed.
I did read part of two books and the entirety of Junie B. First Grader: Dumb Bunny.
(Because it’s meant for third graders, but holy those books are occasionally hilarious.) 

Thanks, public library eBooks!

Week 2
Jeans also formerly Riki’s. They are green even though they don’t look like it.
Today [Monday. Whatever day I am in.] is also the first day/time I have worn skinny jeans ever.

History, yeah?

Speaking of history. 

Week 2

 
My friend Bob is reading Canadian History for Dummies. And considering I want to read 30 books this year (I am not counting Junie B. up there, I swear. Problematically I can’t log it on GoodReads because I can’t un-count it without lying and I refuse to lie on the internet.) and Bob is American and I am Canadian, it seemed like a good idea for me to maybe read about Canadian History along with him.
 
You should join us. We can have Canadian History for Dummies book club. 😉
