Cookie monsters strike again 6


The weather’s been just beautiful. Heavy rain overnight for the past few nights leaving the days cloudy and breezy. Nonetheless, it’s another quiet weekend for us.

Life in the city can be mundane if you don’t consciously go and seek out fun things to do. But seeing as how one person’s entertainment can be another’s sleeping pill, this whole idea can be the subject of a huge debate.

The girls and I have just spent 3 hours in the kitchen baking more of, yes, those scrumptious chocolate chip cookies we baked last weekend

… and a carrot cake. Some of the batter went into cupcakes for Skye’s recess.

Friday night, we were caught in massive Friday night traffic which turned our 20-minute drive into 2 hours. So on the way home, we rewarded ourselves with a yummy Chinese dinner at almost 9pm!!

An unearthly dinner hour for us, I know, but the night life here is anything but quiet, so finding a place to eat or shop is as convenient as Self-inking Stamps. Even late at night, traffic is still crazy, and restaurants, stores and malls are open late.

Saturday, we had lunch out as usual, just before our grocery run. And that’s basically it. We’ve been holed up in the comfort of home since then except for taking Tyson, our beagle, for his evening walks.

How’s your weekend going?

    Cookies, yum! I had a chance to relax all day Saturday which was nice. Yesterday we visited family. I’d say it was a good weekend. Bummer about the 2 hour traffic, but yay for Chinese food!
