Pretty nails

Saturday night, I went to my friend Anita's "manicures and martinis" bachelorette. It was great and now I have pretty, albeit quite pink, nails.

It was really fun to hang out with such awesome girls.

I didn't go out to the bar because my head was hurting... again.

I'm not entirely sure what is going on that my head hurts so much all the time. The weather, maybe a little. Sleep? Maybe, although last night I slept well. I'm also quite susceptible to hormonal headaches so it's likely that stress could be causing these ones.

I've been trying to exercise more regularly as that can help. On Saturday, I pulled out my new expensive decadent running shoes and walked pretty much the entire city in pursuit of covering as much Luminato as possible. I got a good amount in and even managed to find my old friend Michelle playing drums in Queen's Park! I was so happy to see her. It was too bad that I didn't have more time to catch up, though. It was just nice to see her doing her thing.

Sunday I was supposed to do the Autism walk but my team pulled out because the team lead was in the hospital - pretty serious. So we didn't do the walk -- rather, I did the walk the day before many times over, I suppose. Enough for all of them, I'd wager. Instead, on Sunday, I watched movies on TV (The Break Up wasn't bad, actually) and went to Starbucks to drink London Fogs and read a magazine.

Then I walked back home, looking at people's gardens and wishing I'd brought my camera to identify later the plants that I want to grow and the styles that I really like. At home, I vaccuumed and swept and washed and folded and scrubbed and baked. And then I sat down and watched more TV movies. Ocean's Eleven never fails to make me smile.

And all with my pretty pink nails.
