It was so nice to have a holiday weekend. We found the perfect balance between getting out (enjoying Mandarin with Shannon, Dad and Julie, going to Pacific Rim, having dinner down in the Beaches) and getting things done (starting on Mom's pictures, getting things away, laundry) and relaxing. Yesterday I took some time to sit in front of the TV and create some cards. I have lots of love notes of gratitude that I'd like to send out and thought this would be a nice way to do it.
Holiday Monday yesterday, although I never remember (or maybe never have ever known) what this one is for, but I do know it's a holiday. I kicked back, relaxed, wrote a bit, vlogged a bit and enjoyed the simple pleasure of the day with Jamie's Banana Bread which she gave to me the night before. Thank you Jamie!
We finished up our long crazy weekend by dressing up for the Natal Day Parade. We walked in the Hal-Con section and I was a bubble girl, making giant bubbles for the crowd as people yelled "Khan!!!!" to Reg. There was a lot of "freaking the mundanes" like Reg in Tim Horton's and me picking up eggs and milk with a brain slug on my head. Good times. Although I feel like I have been run over by a truck.
