Grey Friday

//wearing my green pantsĀ  & my robot shopping/swim bag from Jared because I needed something bright in my life. Listening to Solange because I needed something uptempo//

Is it grey or gray? I can never remember. Either way it was not sunny at all today. I accidentally slept in really late because I turned off my alarm and so my body didn’t recognize the time as day time.

piscine st D

I was feeling sluggish and sleepy but I promised myself that I would go swimming 3 times this week. Plus I really like swimming. So I packed myself up and went to the pool. The pool was packed but I still managed a good 30mins of laps. The city pools in Montreal are free and this one is less than a 10min walk from my house. I like a good free adult swim in the afternoon to make me feel like I’m taking care of myself. Its nice to have some quiet time with no screens and the only sound is people swimming. Gives me time to let my mind wander, or think of nothing in particular.

granola

Afternoon snack of my homemade granola with yogurt and a boozy bourbon marmalade by Silvie to finish off my little time off and now back to work on looking for work. At least with a fresh mind and stretched out body.

Happy friday everyone.

30

Holy balls I turned 30! This is me, in the rain, hungover and excited about a giant sunflower.

/// Birthday Day!!! ///

The weekend was so very nice. I was really sick last week and I rolled into my last few days of my 2oies seriously on my last legs. My new work schedule and the amount of time I spend on the metro every day had really led to a helluva cold. I took off work early on Friday because I had a sneaking suspicion that a surprise party was brewing and I needed a nap. The surprise party was adorable. Mars gathering a few of my closest friends together for a really sweet party with family and friends skyped in, champagne, delicious food, cake, balloons, noise makers and streamers. It was lovely and he put so much work into it, it really showed. The party didn’t go late which worked fine for me because I felt like death and I got a good night sleep on Friday night, partially because M slept on the couch (he was trying really hard not to get sick).

On Saturday I treated myself to a haircut (with Julie again). I hadn’t had a haircut since April I think. Julie cuts hair so well that it can grow out for literally ages and still look good. I also got my nails done by my friend Laura of Drop Dead Manicures. Yay, self pampering.

I had a quiet rest of the day with Mars and then we got ready to go out to a party that he was performing at. He gave an incredible performance and then made me get up on stage at midnight to wish me happy birthday. I was totally embarrassed and totally charmed, no one has ever done anything like that for me. We spent the rest of the night dancing, were joined by my good friend Katie and rolled out very late.

Sunday was my actual birthday and the only thing I wanted was to go have brunch at a really great spot that I’m not going to name because its already SO busy and hard to get in there. That’s pretty much all we did too. I didn’t answer any calls except from my parents (seemed fair that they got a pass for making this birthday possible) and we just had a quite day watching movies and napping.

30 is already way different than 20 but I love it. I’m really excited for this new decade and what it will bring me. I did so much in my 20ies and had so many adventures, I’m really curious to know what my 30ies will bring.
