I "talked" to Jaap's friend, Hylke this morning on MSN Messenger and he asked me how I like living in Toronto. I thought about it and realized that I like it very much.

Toronto in the summer is so great. There's always so much to do.

Sometimes I just wish I took more time to do it.

I also want to thank all the lovely people who were so sweet and supportive when I mentioned that I was sad.

Everyone gets sad sometimes. It just helps the good times to feel all that much better, I guess. It's really nice to be reminded that people love you, though. So thank you.

Things ARE good.

It was a good day.

Jaap and I went for a walk around downtown - Ryerson, Chinatown, Kensington and University of Toronto before heading off to Taste of the Danforth.

It was SO busy with people lining up in ginormous lines to pay $3 for a stick of souvlaki. We had gyros and cheesecake and walked around, stopping to listen to a couple Greek bands.

Tomorrow, we're off to Grand Bend.

Several exciting things to report:
  • I have a couch!
  • My couch is pretty!
  • Alex came for a surprise visit!
  • I have installed StatCounter on my site (Re-invigorate punked out on me)
  • Jaap is arriving in Toronto and staying with me tonight!

    Tired. So tired.

    I went to see The Free Press at Healey's last night. It was great - they were great - and I was really proud. But of course it meant I went to bed super late and got up early for work.

    I thought about breaking my rule and doing a really personal post. But I think it doesn't belong here. Perhaps it belongs in the journal I keep beside my bed - my pen has been aching for use.

    I guess I should just say that I've been sad. I don't like being sad.

    But I should never underestimate the value of a good, straightforward talk with someone who really listens.

    I mean, if you're sad, what do you really have to lose by talking about it? It can only get better...

    I had a lovely weekend!

  • Friday night, my birthday party
  • Saturday, hang out with boyfriend and shop
  • Saturay night, fun bachelorette
  • Sunday, visit from my mom (bday presents!), dairy queen and home to the farm
  • Monday, more bonding time with mom and back to Toronto for Thai food and window shopping

    I got tickets to Annie Get Your Gun opening at Massey Hall soon!

    I got a beautiful silk scarf and all sorts of amazing skin products (NOT because I'm old, though!) and I got an awesome book called 1,000 Places To See Before You Die. I can't wait to get inspired for my next big adventure!

    Birthdays are great - and mine isn't even OVER!
