I had such a great weekend, albeit quite indulgent.
I woke up quite early on Friday morning – for no reason at all but noticed this incredible sky. I quickly took a few photos and climbed back into bed. Check out that moon.My niece came down to visit while on a work trip and we took her to Peter Pan – the weather was perfect and we sat outside on their patio.
I’ve been there a few times, and it’s not perfect in any way but I love it. On Saturday I had brunch with friends at Swan. We were originally suppose to try Beast but they were closed for a private affair. Ah well – Swan was just as I remembered it from my university days.Elizabeth had the Huevos Rancheros and Sammi had the Hangtown Fry. I had the special of the day – an egg sandwich.We walked so much – from Queen and Spadina to Queen and Roncesvalles, and then down the waterfront all the way back to Strachan up to Queen West and Spadina. Such a gorgeous day of walking.
And then on Sunday we started over again with brunch at Weslodge for a my friend Mariel‘s birthday. That place was a bit intense in the sense that it was super commercial and contrived but you had to respect the work that was put into a place like that. Everything is custom and beautiful but definitely not your typical charming hole in the wall.
We had biscuits with jam, an organic turkey club, and some bison pastrami sandwiches.
Yes, bison. Mariel‘s friend does nails. She got her nails did for her birthday.And I decided it was good time to plant a few of my more mature succulent babies into little planters. I’ll let them get accustomed to their pots and hand them out to friends.
I apologize for the terrible paint job.
And that was it! Supper on Sunday consisted of a bibb salad with chicken and avocado, and some yellow beans. It was delicious.
How was your weekend friends? Did anyone get to the Ex?
