Seven years ago, I landed in Italy for my very first European trip. It was an amazing trip, with my daughter along, and meeting so many people from the States, and Australia – some are still friends! This was the trip that put the travel bug in me that hasn’t left. I loved Italy – in particular Venice – and I will definitely make it back there again. Some pictures from my trip!
An awesome moonlit night over Lake Erie
Yesterday was my Dad’s funeral and because of the weather and it being outside, we had a 15 minute service. It was nice and we all went to brunch. My family drives me crazy but it was nice to be all together ❤.
But today was me day. I rented a car and took off for the day. Went for a drive and had breakfast at one of my favourite places, Angel’s Diner.
Came home and did some cleaning. Then I took off again. Some shopping and driving down to the beach. It was surreal at the waterfront. The fog was slowly lifting and it made for some amazing views.
I ended up on a patio, enjoyed an early dinner of a Pickerel Po’boy sandwich. It was a perfect me day. Sometimes we need mental health days to reset our minds.
I don’t do this very often, as I don’t have a car. Rented one for the past couple of days and definitely made it worth my while!
A day spent with two of my loves – my daughter and grandson. And a lovely walk tonight on my own enjoying the peace and solitude. A perfect day.
Last night, I decided to break one of my rules of isolation, and had my best friend over for a home cooked meal, some wine, enjoyable conversation and even threw in a game of Tri-Bonds! It was just what we both needed – a night of normalcy during these times.
I’m off today and tomorrow, so today I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a nice long walk, sat in the sun for a bit, and then headed over to a lovely bakery close by for a decadent afternoon treat!
What do you do to treat yourself on a beautiful relaxing day off?
I had the day off and took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a very long walk. Wandered through the park, and the ice rink was melting. I feel re-energized!
An absolutely gorgeous day here in Southern Ontario. The leaves are falling quickly but the day is warm. Glad I was able to go for a walk.
The colours of Southern Ontario are majestic this time of year.
I have recently moved to a new area and decided to take a walk to discover the area. Well it turns out I have been missing out all week on an absolutely GORGEOUS view of the valley! Enjoy!
