Day 148: Young, Restless

I was not very productive today. Tooth was really hurting, took some CBD and Aleve to take away the pain. It was super hot out but I stayed inside all day. I didn’t work out, super lazy. Sean went to town in the afternoon and then I took him for a long rip on the wakeboard. He’s so good at it, blows my mind!

For dinner, I made our new fav dish, avocado pesto pasta. I throw a handful of basic, a couple of garlic cloves, one avocado, salt, pepper, and olive oil in the food processor and voila, a deliciously creamy pasta sauce. It’s so good right out of the pot or the cold from the fridge.

In other news, the YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS IS BACK ON TV. I can’t even tell you how much I missed the show. I know it might seem silly to love it so much but I’ve been watching it my whole life. When the show stopped due to COVID, that regular part of my day at 4:30 pm, when I wrap up work and wind down, wasn’t there. It’s a small step to normalcy and I’m glad to have it back.

Day 147: Ok One Moment, Over It The Next

I was dead tired today and spent the whole day watching Netflix on the couch. I also ate all the snacks I could find. I needed rest. I’ve had a bit of a sore tooth that acts up every now and then. I know I should get it fixed. Maybe I will next time we’re back in the city. I’ve been watching Good Girls S3, it’s ok. We also started The World’s Most Wanted but tbh it made us both fall asleep.

I haven’t run in a few days and I feel like a slug. Hopefully this week I find my mojo and get back to it. These times are so weird. I love this post from @internetstacy, it’s ok to not feel ok all the time.

We’re all just trying to get through this, hang in there.

Day 146: Sean’s Birthday!

A little bit of a different birthday than previous years but we made the most of it! Last night we had a family sushi picnic. It’s been over 6mo since I had sushi and it was delicious!

I packed a cake and sparklers and we sang to Sean in the park. I biked home with the cake before the picnic so it was a little dishevelled but still tasty!

Gave Emily one of my Masks for Music by Melanie Goldman. She’s created hundreds of masks and raised over $15,000 for the Unison Benevolent Fund’s Covid-19 Relief Project. Learn more or donate here.

This morning we drive back up to the cottage and there was so much traffic. Sean and I were both pretty exhausted and fell asleep in the afternoon watching Netflix on the couch. Woke up to a beautiful sunset over the lake.

At night we heard pretty loud music and a cottage down the road had a live band! We were just about to head over when our friends rolled up in their boat to check it out from the lake.

A bit hard to see in the photo but the music was great!

There were about 20 boats in the water jamming along to the tunes. We also did a few fireworks on the dock and everyone in the boats cheered.

It was a nice ending to a few days of celebrating Sean’s birthday! HBD ILY!

Day 145: Best Buds! Superette Shop Store Visit

Today Miche and I went to the Superette Shop. You might remember I went to a party here around the anniversary of legalization and was in Superette’s bowling tournament in February. Well, this cannabis store like nothing you have ever seen before. IT’S SO CUTE.

I absolutely love the ‘flower’ display where they have containers in the flower display allowing you to see & smell each type of cannabis. It’s such a creative way to display the buds. 😁

The massive store has everything from dried flower, to oils, drinkables, edibles, accessories and merch. Miche and I both picked out matching pink hoodies and I purchased a few goodies for Sean’s birthday.

There are heaps of really rad accessories. Back in the day, I remember making a bong similar to this water bottle using things around the house, however, this 2020 version is GLASS. The merchandising is so creative, they have these little banana pipes in a banana basket. Love it!

There’s a really neat menu where you can place orders that resembles an old cigarette-style vending machine. If you need a hand with what to purchase, they have colour coded baskets at the entrance to show that you have questions or you’re good on your own.

I felt like such. dork because I kept saying ‘omg so cute‘ whenever I discovered something new. Miche and I got these little 10mg THC shots from Aurora and enjoyed them when we got home.

The new Superette Shop is located at 1073 Yonge St, Toronto, and they’re open 10 am to 8/9 pm most days. See store details here and follow them on IG @superette_shop for updates.

Thank you Thaomy @ Superette for the shop tour! ILY and can’t wait to come back!
