The Days Are Getting Shorter
It's getting to be that time again...the days are getting shorter, and shadows are getting longer.
I can't say that I am not excited for Fall. As a lover of all seasons, I appreciate the change. The beginning of things is always exciting.
Not sad to see the end of t-shirts. I love my sweaters and Fall jackets.
I also love my sisters' place. So cozy!
Hair is getting super long!
Dave and I have been talking a lot lately about where we want our lives to go. As two people who are VERY go with the flow and just see what happens, it most likely will end up just being talk. It's nice to do, to dream. But we are not doers, we are two people who fly by the seat of our pants. We want things in this life, like buying our own house one day, a car (I personally want a GIANT effing closet for once), and these things will happen eventually, we are just not planners. Which is either incredibly stupid, or genius. We'll see how that goes.
We did go to Guelph this past weekend to check out the scenery. I have always seen myself ending up in Guelph (like, when I am 60 and I have given up on life). We will never get ahead living in Toronto. Our dream of buying a house will NEVER happen here. It's too bloody expensive. Besides, I don't want to live in the city forever. Just not ready to leave yet.
It was nice in Guelph, but there was no real charm. We were only there for the day so maybe if we hung out there a little more I would change my mind. I liked the outskirts, where it was more country-like than 'city'. I have always said that if I move out of Toronto towards a small town, I want to be more in the country than the town/ city itself. Why would I leave THE city to live in a lamer city? (Sorry, that's my Toronto snob coming out).
The fact that there is a giant Catholic church smack in the middle of town is a bit strange no? I mean, it's a university town...how many people actually go to church here? Maybe all the old people. There were only two kinds of people in Guelph; young students or really old people. No inbetweeners.
It was very pretty inside though. If I was still a 'Catholic' (in my head and heart I never was), I would have liked going to Christmas mass here. I imagine there is a choir. Choirs rock.
You can take the girl out of the party, but you can't take the party out of the girl.
Bye Guelph. See you next time!
Now on to salted caramel hot chocolates from Starbucks. Yussss!
One loser thing that I really really enjoy doing is seeking out all things Halloween (and Christmas) in big box stores (Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, etc). Every year it happens earlier and earlier AND I AM OK WITH THIS. In fact, you can just keep the Halloween and Christmas shit out all year round. Let's cut to the chase, you know you want to! I see no problem with it.
Haha Dave...it's like looking in a mirror isn't it? Just kidding!
There is a storm coming tonight. Kind of a big one. Lots of rain, and it is bringing in the cooler weather. Tonight is about tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, and staying dry and warm inside.
What is everyone up to on this last weekend of summer?
