Despite being a short work week, its been very long days and I’m counting down to tonight when I can head up north to a friend’s cottage. There is nothing like leaving behind the mess and mayhem of the city for a little peace and quiet on a lake.
My bag is all packed and loaded with the essentials: bikini, new flip flops, magazines and sunscreen. All I need is a new pair of sunglasses!
Whiskey has been super needy lately. As in, he won’t leave my side. He had to stay with my parents for a couple of weeks while I was working on a short film, and you’d swear that he thought I’d abandoned him. I originally wasn’t going to take him for the long weekend, but now I can’t picture going without him. I’ve missed my little sidekick and I know that he’ll have a fun weekend at the cottage.
This morning I packed up his little bag with all the goodies he might want and when I wasn’t looking he hopped in. I think he was all ready to go.
I had a Groupon that I bought MONTHS ago for the Lush & Lavish Salon and Spa in Toronto and I’ve been meaning to use it, but have never gotten around to it. What better excuse to use it than to get ready for some flip flop wearing this weekend? I loved this sweet turquoise colour and its perfect for a fun summer weekend. I always pick a pink, red or neutral colour, so this is definitely a change for me, but I love it!
It even came with a manicure, so I got my nails done too. I rarely ever do my nails, so its a treat.
I’ve got a freshly made loaf of Raspberry-Lime Bread that I made this morning. Just waiting for it to cool to pack it for the cottage. Its been a battle of willpower not to cut into it. It made the entire apartment smell so good. (recipe up this weekend!)
I’ve got a loooong day at the office and then I’m off to all the last minute food and beer shopping while Garrett is working late. You know that the second I am off the clock, I’ll be celebrating the long weekend…even if its while pushing a cart around 🙂
Hope that you all have a wonderful long weekend! And be sure to check back for that bread recipe. Its a good one!
