Spring in Canada. I wonder why pictures never show snowflakes? It's actually snowing quite heavily in the above picture, but you'd never know it.
Which was a delightful surprise. I know everyone here's all "GAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!" but we've just come from Tennessee so it's still exciting. Plus, we're in a warm house and have no intention of going outside. Plus, we're in a high rise and have zero snow shoveling duties. Plus, it is actually trending warmer these days so the snow isn't going to hang about for long. For all these reasons we think it's kind of cool. Want to see more pictures?
Yes, they're all from the same vantage point on our balcony. I stepped two steps outside, snapped the pictures, then hurried back inside again. Not much interested in going outside any time soon.
....which is a pity as the kidlet wants to go to the library (The round building in the above pictures. Yes, I know it's only across the road but still...) Mmrrgrrfffhhhngnn. Well fine. Maybe we'll go. Or not. Maybe I'll plead illness. I have a horrid cough and some weird thing going on in my lungs that kept me up some of the night (the rest of the night I was kept up by the rave going on upstairs....). I've been drinking chamomile tea and honey all day and it's worked wonders. But maybe I can still play the sick card...it is, admittedly, 2pm, and I'm still in my nightdress. Clearly I'm not feeling up to being human today.
Are you interested in this fabulous apartment? =) I know I told you last time that it was 800 sq ft. Apparently it's 900. So I guesstimated 100 off. Not bad. Here are the pictures. Prepare yourselves for awesomeness.
Here's the view from the front door. To your immediate left there is a little closet where the vacuum cleaner is stored. Just past that on the left is the office. Then just past that is the master bedroom. You can see the doorway in the picture opposite the dining room table.
To the right from the front door is the kitchen with the laundry closet, the dining table (which you can see in the picture). Just past the dining table to the right (you can *just about* see it in the pic) is another bedroom and bathroom, which Ben uses.
Straight ahead is, clearly, the living room and the balcony. That's it.
The kitchen. Note the closet at the end opposite the cooker.
Here's the laundry closet. I love it. It's in the kitchen where it's meant to be.
The dining room table. From this vantage point you can see the "hallway" that leads to Ben's bedroom (you can see into his bedroom from here) and bathroom.
Ben's bedroom. This is pretty good for him.
Ben's bathroom. Yeah, it's pretty awesome isn't it? =)
Now to the opposite side of the house. I have no pictures of the office. Why? I took the pictures. I remember taking them. So why isn't it on my phone? Clearly the phone gremlins have been at work. Anyway, it's a room with a desk and a mirror. That's it. No closet, no window.
Then we have....
The master bedroom
And the master bathroom
And that's it. Apart from the photo of the closet which has also inexplicably disappeared. Isn't it perfect? What else could we possibly need? Nothing. This place has it all. I love it. =)
At some point I will post pictures of the Jays/Yankees game and the pics I took whilst walking along the lakeshore in Port Credit. Maybe tomorrow. =)
Party on, dudes!
