looking back at photos of san francisco are both warming and cruel. but when it feels like -32 you have to daydream a little. it also has me looking at flights.
have you defrosted, friends? this week has been all frozen boogers and eyelash icicles (which, i must admit, are rather pretty).
this cold weather has me craving mac&cheese so badly. the homemade kind that i haven’t made in years, but probably should because it’s so delicious, but you know, not the healthiest, and there is absolutely no way to enjoy it in moderation. you can’t. you just can’t. you have to make the largest pot of it and eat it until you need to take a nap. maybe it’s for the best the forecast is warming up. let me know if you want to come over for mac&cheese.
to be honest, since being home all i can think of is really great food. calgary is catching up in terms of new and different restaurants, but the abundance of killer cuisine available in toronto makes me so happy. i ate very well with friends during my visit. i think my favourite combination is talking to great people while eating delicious food. that’s the kind of stuff that fills my tank.
are you a new year goal setter? i’m not, but i did take some time as the calendar switched over to reflect on the year and set my sights forward. i’m feeling a lot of pleasure from slowing things down, keeping things simple and embracing the ride. i’ve got my positive pants on, but they are still realistic pants. tres fashionable and maybe the only pair of pants that still fit me.
poor erin is sick again, which means no catching up nor scrumptious french food tonight, but we’ll take a raincheck. this weekend is made for resting, finishing the numerous organizing projects i started during the week, some friend time and some baby cuddling. i know, i know but when it belongs to one of your dearest friends, babies might be kinda cute.
what are you up to this weekend?
