First Time

Yesterday I did something I’d never done before; I went through the drive through at Starbucks. Hahahah.
Seriously. Alvin & I don’t drink coffee so often we laugh at the line-ups @ Timmy’s while we head to work. Yesterday morning I had a hankering for a chai latte – every now & again (usually with mom on a road trip) I’ll indulge in the over-priced fare. Spontaneously I thought I’d start my day out in a way I never had.
How ridiculous, eh? But the latte was delicious & it was fun for me to break from routine.

Father’s Day

I had a memorable Father’s Day to be sure. We went out for a lovely family dinner (who wouldn’t love a Ukrainian buffet- yum yum).

After that I had a TV night- that’s right – the whole evening with the TV on. It happens so rarely but as a family we happily watched the Spurs beat the Heat in Game 5 of the NBA finals. Oh how I would love for them to end it tonight in Miami – Go Spurs!

And a loooong awaited Masterpiece Mystery series is finally back on Sunday evenings. Mom & I were thrilled & enjoyed every minute of our favourite British murder mystery Inspector Lewis. I’ll admit that mom & I did sound a bit ridiculous chatting about how much we missed Kevin Whately & Laurence Fox. The link will describe the series better than I would…who knew I could spend that many hours in front of a TV? Love it!

Just In…

How invigorating.

I dragged myself out for a bike ride despite low energy & looming clouds. I threw my rain jacket on at the last-minute and was quite thankful for it 5 minutes into my ride. I had a great rip & changed my route depending on the clouds/ lightning (seriously). Just as I pulled up my driveway the heavens opened & the rain started pounding down- I’m so thrilled to have gotten a little damp but mostly rejuvenated before the downpour.

Alvin’s birthday was last weekend & we had a lovely shindig at our place. And being the good Aunt that I am the only photos I took are of my beautiful niece- sorry birthday boy & lovely guests.
