another long weekend was upon us and the weather couldn't have been better. dylan went up to his uncle's cabin with his uncle, brother, and dad for a guys getaway so my mom decided she would come hang out for the weekend. we spent some time at a few of the different man-made beaches that toronto has, shopping, eating a lot of junk (she always comes with a bag full of chips, candy, and chocolate!) and hanging out back at my place reading. it's been just over 3 years since we've had a 'mom and me' weekend where she sleeps over since that's how long dylan and i have been living together (wow!).
sugar beach. luckily those clouds were a big, fat lie and it never rained.
an easy breakfast for two on sunday.
after breakfast, we took a walk down to the harbourfront.
another man-made beach!
a perfect spot to dip our toes in the sand and read a book for a couple of hours.
the left side of me got a lovely burn. the right side? still pretty pasty. darn.
more reading on our balcony, just as a big storm hit when my mom left.
holiday monday laziness. (everyone seems to have loved this book, but i thought it was terrible. i was so happy when i finished it.)
when the afternoon sun got too hot, i moved to our more shaded balcony and started the girl on the train.
just a slight burn, no biggie.
it's always tough going back to work after a long weekend, but i'm lucky that i only have a 3 day week and then we're off for another camping trip on friday morning!
