This post is better late than never, right? Just pretend it’s Monday while you’re reading this.
I went to Five Guys for the first time on Friday night. The boyfriend lives a couple blocks away from one, so we thought we’d check it out. I got a little cheeseburger and we shared some Cajun fries. It was pretty good.
Saturday was mostly errands and laundry. Saturday night was a friend’s birthday party. You know you’re getting old when your friends turn 30-something and it doesn’t sound old. As a teenager I would have thought that was ancient! I had a barbequed burger and veggies and piece of pumpkin birthday cake for dessert.
Sunday I spent with the boyfriend. We ended up at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. Neither of us had ever been there before. There were quite a few paths to walk along. It was really pretty with the changing leaves.
I swear there are birds in this photo! The Canadian Geese are by the closest island. Ironically we only saw one other bird there. Kind of funny that at the bird sanctuary we only saw two different birds.
I would definitely go for a walk here again. Even though we were there on a Sunday morning with quite a few other people, it never felt crowded.
The bird sanctuary is in a pretty cute neighbourhood. On the way there we passed a Mexican restaurant, so we went to it for lunch. We shared a plate of nachos (oh so cheesy and delicious) and a chicken quesadilla. I may or may not have had a margarita.
We walked over to a used book store after lunch. I found the fourth Anne of Green Gables book I had been looking for. I also found the other two books in the Little Women series, which I haven’t read yet. The best part of finding these books is that they don’t look like they’ve ever been read.
Once we got back to the boyfriend’s place we decided to watch Shaun of the Dead. I don’t think that movie ever gets old. If you haven’t seen it I would definitely recommend it.
I thought I saw something read on one of the tomato plants, and when I went outside to check it out, I was right. I ended up picking quite a few tomatoes. They were perfectly sweet. No matter how many tomatoes I eat from the grocery store, none of them taste like garden grown ones.
Sunday night I had my second yoga class. We did a lot of the same poses, so it was great to be able to do them again because this time I kind of knew what I was doing. It was the perfect way to end the weekend.
What was your favourite part of your weekend?
