Another fabulous weekend has come to an end. Sigh. What a great weekend it was!
First, it started with a trip to Ikea for some bathroom accessories. Ted spotted a tissue box cover — I think we both did a happy dance when he found it. Do you realize how impossible it has been to find a rectangular tissue box cover? Apparently, the rest of the world either: a) doesn’t use tissue box covers, or b) uses tissue in square boxes. I know. Totally sad. This is our idea of a fun Friday night…
But, it didn’t end there. My iPhone 3GS has been dying a slow death for the past few months. I was hoping that it would live long enough until the launch of the iPhone 5, but no such luck. It was time to upgrade.
I’m loving the iPhone 4S…all 32-delicious-GB of it. Ted has caught me more than once having an in-depth convo with Siri. I put my iPhone 3GS to rest on Saturday. It served me well for almost 4 years.
We also shuffled off to Buffalo on Saturday to tackle a long list of errands, like returning some bathroom items to Home Depot, and visiting our favourite stores, like Target, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, etc. Ahh, and of course, mail — I had some glorious prezzies (to me, from me) waiting at our U.S. mail box.
If you live in Southern Ontario, you know about the crazy wind storm that started Saturday morning. Almost 100 km/h winds! Driving to Buffalo was interesting — especially the drive over the Skyway bridges. The clouds above us were moving fast and our little Mini was shaking with every gust of wind.
By the time we arrived to the Rainbow Bridge, the clouds over The Falls were intense! Here a snap without using any filters — insane!
All-in-all, our trip to Buffalo was a success. No big purchases to report, besides many, many, many boxes of cereal (why is cereal so expensive at home?!)
Sunday was supposed to be my day of productivity — you know, the day where I finish all of the finishing touches on the bathroom, like hem the extra long shower curtain, purchase and hang some shelving, install that dreaded soap dispenser (once and for all!), hang some wall decor and photograph the bathroom in daylight.
Did any of that get done? Sorta. I’ll be sure to share a proper update with you this week.
But, rather than opting for productivity, we opted for a morning walk with Mason.
We live near the 14 km mark of the Burlington Chilly Half Marathon. Ted, Mason and I bundled up to watch the runners and cheer them on. When we arrived, there were no runners to be seen — the course was empty.
However, after a few minutes, the runners started trickling in. These two men were like machines!
Then, a herd of runners started coming. And, it didn’t end. Hundred and hundred of runners pounding the pavement in our lil ol’ neighbourhood.
One guy (known as “The Joggler”) was even running the half marathon while juggling and wearing a video camera on his hat!
Another guy was dressed up as a chili pepper!
It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning. I can’t lie — I was kind of inspired by the runners. I think it’s time I lace up my running shoes again.
How did you enjoy your weekend? Were you productive? Or, did you opt for fun like us? I’ll need to scrounge up some time one or two evenings this week so I can finally finish the bathroom project. I’m ready for it to be done.
