tunes & lasagna

With family in town for my long weekend { why not take Monday off?? } we were busy and had a lot of fun! The boys ran the Scotia Bank 1/2 marathon, we ate good food, relaxed, and went for lots of long walks…  Today was for groceries { we’ve started actually making lists and planning meals for the week – unreal } and then I got to making my famous roasted veggie meat lasagna. Delish! A glass of red wine, Saint-Germain des-Pres Cafe Vol. 7 in the air, and cooking in a cozy kitchen. Not a bad way to spend a windy Monday afternoon.

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! I hope that everyone had a lovely long weekend. I am sad to see it come to an end { it’s my most favorite holiday of the year !! } but glad to have spent such a delightful weekend with friends and family ; )

sweater weather

OK, well, not quite yet. But, it is already September and I can’t believe how quickly this summer flew by. With the last long weekend of l’été behind us (did y’all have a good one?) we can start to look forward to a beautiful autumn!

take it easy

As the long weekend comes to a close (well for some of us Canadians at least) I hope that everyone had a nice relaxing time no matter what you got up to. Nothing quite like a short work week to bring on a smile ; )
