It's days like yesterday that make me love my hometown so much.
I woke up around 9am & biked to the farmer's market with my friend (& neighbour) Iris. It was cool & crisp outside (-1 in the morning) but the sun was shining gloriously over the market. I enjoyed a samosa & a wheat grass shot, left with honey & apple cider. On the way home we stopped in at Art in the Park, looked at all the pretty pieces & painted prayer flags. The flag I made bares my due date, while Iris quoted Spinoza. After Iris & I parted ways, I met up with a friend for tea & desserts at Black Honey. We braved the chill & sat outside to enjoy the waning days of patio season.
When I got home, Caren, my gorgeous friend who owns Buttercup & Co., asked if I'd come to Art in the Park with her, so off I went again. This time I tried to bring Winston, but he was misbehaving (on account of my friend having her pup Grace with her as well) so I brought him back home before heading to the park again. Once we got to the park we took another look around, chatted with the oh so talented artist responsible for Lucky Jackson & Almost Famous. I adore her art & someday it will hang in our baby's room (once the spending strike calms down).
We also ran into a few friends, including the lovely Cushti (who I had most definitely ran into at the market) & her little puggle, Vizzini. The pups had a little meet in greet, which I think turned into the most entertaining park of Art in the Park. We certainly got a lot of attention.
The entire day was so lovely & the good vibes continued into the dark. I loved having a Saturday off (for the first time in a long time) and I loved spending it enjoying my city & the beautiful things that happen here. Bye for now. Have a fabulous, lazy, Sunday afternoon, friends.
