My week started off well. Monday was Family Day in Ontario and Alberta, so we had the day off that week at the telemarketing agency I work at. I met my friend Bharti that afternoon, a dear friend whom I’d met through work. She’s one the most inspirational people I’ve met in my life; a strong, positive thinker, with a double Masters in micro-biology. She moves back to India next week and is getting married. So, I took her lingerie shopping to La Senza and the La Vie En Rose outlet downtown.
I helped her pick out many different outfits, but I ended up buying more than her. I found a sophisticated long grey cotton robe for $20 and 10 for $5 underwear, so I was very happy with my necessity purchases! Bharti ended up with a deep purple lace nightgown which looks very elegant on her. We ended up stopping for coffee at a fancy café too, called MBCo, where everything was beautifully presented and the baristas were extremely attentive. It was fantastic! It was a great afternoon!
I had Nicole and Aria over for dinner that night. I laid the table with my white table cloth, scallop-edge cloth napkins, with white square plates and candles. It looked very fine indeed!
I made linguine with pesto, topped with cherry tomatoes, chopped portobello mushrooms, and a spinach leaf. Aria brought potato salad, and Nicole brought brownies, so we had a feast! We watched music videos on YouTube and shared Valentines stories. None of our Valentines went as planned, so it was all very comical.
The work day on Tuesday went by quickly and afterwards I went met up with Tristan and his friend Astrid, both affiliated with the student co-op I used to live in while in Toronto. I took them to a student jazz café where we drank coffee and ate sweet-potato fries and fried zucchini. There was a live jazz playing and in between songs we would look at typography-related material on Astrid’s laptop computer. It was very pleasant.
Now I sit at home on my computer. Its not even the middle of the week yet and so much has happened. Its been a lovely last 3 days!
