This week flew by for me so quickly. It almost felt like a 4-day work week. What are everyone’s plans for the Labour Day weekend? Just moments ago the boyfriend and I were out on the balcony watching the thunder storm. It was so relaxing. He had a brewski, me a water. Haven’t ate supper yet — I should get on that.

ootwwHope everyone stays safe this long Labour Day weekend. I do want to address one thing though.

I still see people in cars as I’m driving, with the driver texting, or talking on their cell up to their ear. No hands free. Earlier this week I almost got t-boned on a round-about by a person who didn’t yield, and I noticed he was talking on his cell. My horn was’a blarin, let me tell you that much.

I know there’s many of you out there who text and drive. Some of you even write about it on social media. I can’t believe some of you admit you’re doing it.

Please. Watch this video and reconsider texting and driving.

Have a safe long weekend.

I forgot to mention I was over on Happy Fit Mama’s site yesterday doing a guest post talking about my favorite summer foods. Check it out if you’ve got the chance.

Love that today is already Friday and pay day. Bonus. Since we had a civic holiday in Ontario on Monday, the week just flew on by. Newfoundland did not get the holiday though, but did get Wednesday off due to the annual Regatta.

Just want to say how GLAD I am that summer decided to make a reappearance. This may sound weird, but I love being overheated. I wear a company hoody over top of my regular work clothes almost every day. I just love being cozy and warm, so finally seeing the sun out the past two days is definitely making me happier. Thanks Ma-Nature!

To take advantage of the gorgeous sun that was out yesterday, my co-worker and I went to a Portuguese bakery & deli. A different co-worker asked where we went for lunch, and this was my answer:

“I ate at the best place today! Lesbian for lunch”. Not even close: Lisboa Bakery and Deli
Uh. Totally came out wrong. I forgot the name of the place and that is what I blurted out. HAHAHA. Then that was the running joke of the entire afternoon.

My lunch was just a plain chicken sandwich but the garlic mayo and fresh bun definitely left me wanting more. It was a decent price too.Lunch

I also got a sparkling passion fruit drink with my meal. It tasted kinda weird, but I liked it.lunch2
For dessert we went across the street for Marble Slab Creamery ice cream. I’ve never been there before. It’s neat that they scoop your ice cream and add any toppings you want and it gets mashed together on this ….frozen marble slab. I got Rocky Road. It was way too expensive for what its worth. I’ll stick to Menchies, or this one gelato place near my house.dessert
I’m not the biggest fan of Winter (least fav season) but I do love Fall. I don’t ever want to rush away the seasons, or months. I want to enjoy living in the moment and not look too forward into the future. Know what I’m getting at? Let’s enjoy what we’ve got, right here, right now.

This post is all over the place but I wanted to share the blog-love today with some new (to me) blogs and some good posts I found this week.

What are your plans this weekend?
I’m overdue for a visit to the Farmer’s Market and need to purchase some fresh produce this weekend, so that’s what I’ll be doing in the morning.

Do you purchase your produce from a Farmer’s Market?

Have you ever had Portuguese food?

Hi guys!

Hope everyone (who is around the area) is enjoying the two days of much needed rain. The grass is already looking greener. Can you believe it’s 18ºC outside, and I had the heat on my car the past two days? Who am I!

What’s everyone up to this weekend? I’ll be drawing the Sharpie Markers winners name this weekend, and no security cameras around to make sure you check back, but please do!

Until then — my outfits of the work week:
