meshing and... stuff

Last week was pretty busy. It enhanced my enjoyment of the long weekend (see last post).

I was working and attending a conference pretty much full time. The conference took place at the MaRS Centre, so I didn't have far to go.

The best part, I'll say, was day 1, meshU. Here I am, listening to my friend Meredith's session on The Principles of Design. It was my favourite session. Why? Well, number one, I got a cupcake. Two, in fact. Homemade cupcakes. I'll be honest, I ate them BOTH.

The second reason it was my favourite? (As if the cupcakes weren't enough!) I actually learned some stuff!

Lazy sunny days

Ah, May 24 weekend.

1 car rental
2 stops for gas
3 nights in Washago
4 trees we carted off to burn
5 dips in the river
6 toasted marshmallows
7 glasses of wine
8 amazing meals
9 magazines read
10 fingernails painted

Basically, it was the perfect weekend. I think I worked for maybe an hour, helping them clear out some fallen dead wood. The rest of the time, I lounged on the dock, read, chatted, or ate.

All with the most amazing people. And no cares. Sigh.

This is where I was yesterday.

Eating a picnic lunch of amazing bread and cheeses and wine. On the beach.

It was pretty much majik.

And then we drove further down the coast towards Big Sur for some breathtaking views.

More to come on the whole trip to California, but I'm on the way to the airport for an entire day of travelling now. Good times.

(I don't want to leave.)
