the long and winding weekend..


sweet wee wooden veggies from Polka Dot.....

Oh, what a nice weekend i had, but like i told someone, i feel socially exhausted! I spent 3 whole days away from Steve, my cats and the house in Whitby while i galavanted around Toronto, first getting my hair cut at Aveda ( i'm not that thrilled with it, but at least it's trimmed) and then spending some time with my good friend Scotty aka Scooter or Honeybelles Fitzgerald Hollingsworth III, i always giggle when he says it out loud, so charming!
We attacked a large pizza and bottle of strawberry zinfandel *yum* while watching ET and Larry King, following the Anna Nicole saga and speculating on who the father of that poor sweet baby is...then the next day i met my sister from out west and my niece who is auditioning for a drama school here..
we spent most of the day on Queen St. West checking out the cutest shops you could ever imagine....i got some delightful items:

this lovely shabby chic rose hook and this adorable bunny decoration from the Tin Taj and Polka Dot Kids...



later on that evening, while Melissa and friend were at a local theatre, big sis and i ate delicious chinese food - wonton soup, shrimp tempura, spring rolls with crab, and a grilled chicken and pineapple rise dish with ginger tea, at the aptly named 'Saigon Sister' and then headed back to her hotel. The room was located on the top floor -17th and the wind outside sounded spookily fierce, while just outside the room, the pepsi and ice machine buzzed VERY loudly. Oh yeah, we were also treated to the sound of whoosing elevators... (she got stuck with the worst room on the floor.) We also celebrated my brothers birthday, as well as a close family friend ( that's 3 birthdays in one week including Carol's) at the Beer Bistro with awesome food and over 120 varieties of beer, i tried the Belgian strawberry beer with my berry cheesecake (super delish!) and a funny-named one, County Durham Hops Addicted - a bold beer with essence of pine and citrus - very interesting! I would love to go back and try more varieties of beer (Nat, my beer-lover pal....wink wink) and their splendid mussels and frites..
Sunday night, we spent with Steve's family, making it 4 nights in a row i did'nt have to cook *wow* ......
so all in all a fab and very active weekend for moi!
I do need some alone time badly though...

look how tired i am......could'nt even keep my eyes open for dinner..sheesh!


this is little princess daisy...such a sweet pooch!

Sounds like you a had a great family weekend.
Belgian strawberry beer, the first time I had that was in 1987 in a bar in Paris. Wow, 17, in a bar, drinking beer! We'll have to meet there one day for sure!
