Work is starting to get really busy again due to all the teachers going back to school and we’re near the end of the fiscal year. Oh, how I do adore how the days that actually fly by. But I’m not getting as much done as I had intended! Our Annual General Meeting is coming up in November and I’m trying to create a fab new brochure for the report. I have my colors and layout picked out (slate blue + beige). I’m just trying to decide on how I want to varnish it. I’m more simple and subtle, but I can’t figure out the perfect way to approach this. It’s been on my mind for about four months. Everything I look at, inspires me which is a great thing. I’m just not happy when I look at it on screen. “It’ll come” as they say.
I’ve had a lot of appointments come up in the last month or so: braces appointments (retainer), new dentist check–up, first chiropractor appointment, family doctor appointments (in another city!) … I think the list just goes on. It’s totally non–stop but my work is very lenient on the fact that I have no car and I can make up the hours by working longer. I’m so thankful that I have a place that will let me do this. Right now I have to make up 7 hours of work from the multiple appointments and half days that I took off to bus it to another city to go to these places. lol. It won’t take too long to build up time at work, since I rarely take lunch / eat it at my desk and work through it all. But OMG do I ever love making lists and crossing everything off when I finish. Such a great feeling of accomplishment lol. Watch this…

The weekend was pretty eventful. Trying to suck the last bit of summer out of us as we can, since it will be bitter cold weather again before we know it. Saturday morning we woke up at around 6AM and trotted off to Guelph Lake II Triathlon where I watched the BF compete. Sunday we slept in a little too long, woke up at 10 o’clock and I made the beau a ‘big breakfast’ and off we went to the CNE to catch the last glimpse of the air show. We did not get to plomp our bums down on the fresh green grass to look up at the sky at the roaring sound of jets just hundreds of feet above us. Rather, we were stuck in traffic on one of those freaking boulevards for one and a half hours. Needless to say, we both were not happy campers by the time we found a parking spot. However, I got cherry pretty quickly when I saw all the booths like Garnier giving away free samples and products! We stayed there for the rest of the evening and hopped back in the car around 11 at night. Theeeeeeeennnnn… of course on Monday we had to make one last stop at the beach before our summer came to an end. A beach in Paris for that matter. Sounds great doesn’t it? Paris, Ontario folks… Ontario. It wasn’t all that busy considering it was a long weekend and on the Monday for that matter. We swam, we relaxed, had a little picnic and lounged up until the mid–afternoon before I headed out for my last outdoor soccer game of the season. We owned the other team with a wonderful finish of 5–1. I didn’t get any goals, A team mate even said that I wanted it too bad, and it was true. I was disappointed but I still remain the top scorer on my team (I think!)
And of course, what would a post be without some fabulous pictures from said beach. Are you all jealous? More on my Flickr & Facebook accounts, if you are so lucky to have those links.
