Today was a great day. It’s the 5th of September and summer has FINALLY arrived in the city. It has been a long string of cold, dreary, wet weather – unusual for Ontario this time of year.
It’s amazing how much the weather can change our mood. The sun was shining when I woke up this morning. And instead of having a long, lazy sleep in like I usually do on the weekends, I forced myself to get up at a reasonable hour (9:00ish – VERY early for me on a weekend!) I got caught up online, enjoyed a cup of tea, some Eggo waffles and headed out around 10:30 am to get a haircut. The downtown was buzzing – people were out and about, and in a good mood. After getting my haircut, I ran to the mall to run some errands, and pick up some stuff for C’s Bachelorette party this weekend! Where I would have otherwise just been getting out of bed at about 12:00pm, I had already done a full morning of stuff and still had the whole day ahead! I spent a really nice relaxing afternoon at my parents’ place, catching up and lazing in the hammock with a good book while the sun worked on my skin. Afterwards, I headed over to C&A’s place and had a beer with A. on the balcony, before we went to pick up C. from work. Then, the three of us headed to a patio downtown for some dinner and drinks. Now, I’m waiting for my cousin M. to come over for some wine, girl talk and a movie…
It’s been a long time since I’ve been in this good of a mood, and X. is this far from my mind. I am SO excited that it finally feels like summer. Tomorrow, the plan is to head to the beach with a group of friends – throw around the frizbee and have a little Bocce tournament. It will be the first time all summer that I will have put on my bathing suit! And on Monday (holiday in Canada – yay!!) I’ll be catching up with my friend/co-worker J., who’s been away for two weeks (during my whole emotional crises!) She and I have a ton of catching up to do.
Sorry if this blog has read like an itinerary of my weekend, but the sun is shining, I’m in a great mood, and I had to share 🙂
