no ikea here

yesterday was the first time i've had in ten days to sit down and flip through my newest MS Living magazine .. what a reward when i stumbled upon this home tour featuring scandinavian furniture from antiques collector jill dienst - particularly of her living room, bedroom, dining room and fireplace!

goodnight sun, goodnight moon

working late isn't so bad when sunsets like these accompany you home.


good golly, miss molly

i can't believe that last week flew by so quickly... and now monday's over already! i have to get caught up, but wanted to leave a quick post to let you all know that the next week or two may be a bit spotty since it's the uber-busy season at work. orientation, orientation, orientation. three huge events plus a whole week of nonstop orientation goodness will be what i'm eating, sleeping and breathing until september 3rd. sweet. my day planner may be crying for mercy, but i live for this stuff. mm.

stay tuned, cause i'll be around, although i can't promise everyday. but i'll do the best i can.

in the meanwhile, huge news in toronto... (if he's updated his blog, look for the post(s) on august 10th. it appears that on top of orienting 10,000 new students to the school, we're also housing evacuees.
holy hannah! busy times!


regroup extraordinaire

fantastic weekend in port elgin and southampton with my mom and sibs. feels like i've had a second vacation. i love beaches. and i love long weekends. 'nuff said.

how was your weekend?


friday outta here!

it's been a good, productive week. i'm happy about that. i've tidied up loose ends, cleaned everything that would sit still and am putting the finishing touches on my workspace. i just need to find a bulletin board of some sort, i think, to put my inspirational stuff all up, and then it'll be time to rest and relax. perfect timing for the weekend!

this weekend, my sisters, mom and i are going to the grand bend/sauble beach area of the bruce peninsula. it's going to be a long weekend of relaxing and reading on the beach. {speaking of reading, i've finished the other boleyn girl. i'll be buying another of phillippa gregory's books as soon as i can get myself to the bookstore - i'm aiming for tomorrow. it was a great light read, without being ditzy. awesome story, great character development. plus, the historical background research was riveting.}

i'm looking forward to lounging around in the sand (in spf 55 sunscreen, of course), drinking pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain (that they're predicting for saturday). except for the fact that i'm not the biggest fan of pina coladas. one might even venture to say that i intensely dislike them. regardless, i'm sure i'll find something else to make due.

in the meanwhile, does anyone else have any awesome weekend plans?
