i'm back from a wonderful weekend,
the perfect amount of productive and relaxing.
yesterday and today
are two of the first times since arriving
that i've 100% felt like i was in montreal.
i took a lesson from the locals,
rented a pair of patins,
and headed to the very much frozen
lac des castors (beaver lake)
in mont royal park
for some ice skating.
i took notes,
and next time there will be a lot more fleece
and a hat with ear flaps.
but the bright sunny day and blue sky were perfect.
when i stepped out of my apartment this morning,
it was -21 degrees.
(even though celsius makes less sense to my american brain,
i find it adds a little more drama than fahrenheit does).
even in fahrenheit, -6 is chilly enough for my morning commute.
and may i add, that's not counting the windchill.
the locals say this is more like montreal weather.
and looks like more snow later this week!
how was your weekend?
i tried out some new recipes this weekend and tonight too.
stop by tomorrow,
to see what i cooked up!
