life lately

October is wrapping up. Here’s life lately:

The day I realized I had no coffee in the house. Luckily, I found this gem with my hiking gear:img_6567Lunch! I am defrosting things from the freezer these days:img_6571Mike hung our new print from Washington State – I sat on the couch and gave orders while watching This Is Usimg_6582We picked our pumpkins:img_6575 img_6576 img_6578Ran 34km along the BLT trail. I was so happy when Sarah texted me the night before saying she’d join me on the bike: img_6573Bowling! Not a huge fan of bowling but I’m a huge fan of my friends and their son Aden. We bowled for CAWS and Edie came too:img_6584 img_6585 img_6587Sunday mornings are for walks with Henry:img_6591img_6589Sunday afternoons are for baking: Sugarless pumpkin break (bland), chocolate chip banana bread and tea biscuits for a new mom:img_6593 img_6595 img_6592Meet Henry – our friend’s little guy is just 3 weeks old:img_6598

*WARNING: this is gross*

Purple nail polish helps camoflauge the black toenail. Why bother getting a pedicure at this point?img_6597

And if you still have an appetite… My friend Dominic gave me this idea – serve a plate of veggies and hummus with supper for the picky eaters:img_6599Morning walk to school – Henry and I had to ride David’s scooter home:img_6602Eating my TEFF every morning. I like to believe it is working:img_6603A little treat I got for a friend who’s been so great at organizing our relay adventures (still have not given it to her however):img_6604Jill had a dentist appointment so Henry and I watched Edie for a few hours:img_6607 img_6613I was bored:img_6615Mike was away twice this month so I had to take my runs downstairs:img_6618I wanted this so I took David. Sadly, he did not like his creation:img_6619Obviously:img_6620TWINS! Well at least we are sisters. Jill dropped Edie off so her and Alex could go on a birthday dinner date:img_6624 Have I mentioned how lovely it is to have a niece in the same country?img_6628edie-10-20-16Birthday brunch at Edna’s for Sarah:img_6633 img_6634 img_6635This is how people in the North End make apple cider:img_6636Happy birthday Jodie! We celebtated at Piatto Pizzeriaimg_6652 img_6640Another morning walk with Henry:img_6665 img_6662I made this breakfast sandwich and it was delicious:img_6667A proof of David’s class picture arrived. I love it! (blurred the other kids)lizzy-dee-studioAnd it’s soup season! I made butternut squash and apple soup and served them in my grandmother’s dishes – did anyone else have these Campbell Kids soup bowls?img_6669You can see most of these and more on Instagram!

Do you have a favourite? I have a Samantha French print and I love it. I’d happily own all of her work. There’s something about water that soothes the soul… Must be in my Maritime blood.

One of my other wordy-water prints is from my favourite Halifax store, Inkwell : Salt Water PrintHelloSunshine_Inkwellpsst. If you like what you’re reading, please subscribe and share. xomeg
