This work week flew by, and that’s extra awesome since today marks the beginning of the Canada Day long weekend! Three whole days to check things off my Summer To-Do List.
I’ve been eyeing the weather forecast all week (not sure when I became that person) and I don’t mind what I’m seeing.
Let’s ignore the constant threat of thundershowers and move in for a closer look…
Yeah baby! I’ll take those temperatures! It was so hot in May but we’ve had a crappy June. I’m turning translucent and currently have no itchy mosquito bites. Definitely going to change that this weekend.
For lunch today I decided to take myself out to lunch. Cafe Loka is a neighbourhood cafe that opened right around the corner from my apartment about a year ago and I always felt so guilty about not stopping in yet. That changed today when I saw on Facebook that the lunch special was pizza.
I actually forgot how much I sometimes enjoy dining alone. I sat outside at a big communal table with a baby boy, his mom, and another stranger, but I was feeling quiet so I just ate my meal and enjoyed the sun. Everything at Cafe Loka is homemade and they have a lot of vegetarian and gluten-free options. I had the veggie pizza and a big salad with Peanut Thai dressing.
Before leaving I went back in for a The Bomb cookie, which was made with loads of healthy ingredients, but was indulgent enough to get me through Friday afternoon.
If you’re in Canada, I wish you a weekend full of cold beer (I prefer lime-flavoured), strawberry shortcake and beach volleyball. If you’re not in Canada, I wish you the same, regardless.
