Take Me Out To The Ball Game

A couple of weeks ago a nice chap from my work gave me some tickets to go and watch my very first baseball game- Toronto Blue Jays verses Boston Red Sox.

I’m not really one for watching team sports, but growing up watching movies like A League Of Their Own and The Sandlot Kids, I’ve always thought baseball seemed pretty swell- a great American pastime!

I probably enjoyed the actual atmosphere of the stadium and the buzz of the crowd more then the actual game itself, but it was still a lot of fun! I stupidly forgot my camera's memory card though and so here are some delightful photo's that my lovely friend Sinead snapped on her Pentax on the day. Ain't they nice? Check out more of Sinead's photographs Here.

Trash & Treasure

So it seems I have been taking a small hiatus where my dear old bloggy is concerned as of late, I've just been so pre-occupied with planning my next step- which I will be sure to share with you all soon! But being brief, it seems my time in Canada is almost at an end and in a few short weeks it is time for me to pack my suitcase and move on again. Where does the time go?

Anyway enough about that for now. I wanted to show you all this wonderful little painting print that I acquired yesterday from a neighbours spring cleaning pile down the street from my house. I love that time of year when everybody piles their no longer beloved items out the front to be swept away by the garbage man- because like they say one man's trash is another man's treasure!

After some further research the name of the poster is Maurin Quina and it was painted by Leonetto Cappiello in 1906 as an advertisement for a type of liqueur that is no longer in production. Isn't it lovely, a little sinister but in the nicest possible way! What do you think?

Sangria & Fireworks

In celebration of the Victoria Day long weekend, this Sunday just past my housemates and I decided to make mass amounts of fresh Sangria and purchase some fireworks to let of at Christie Pits Park in the evening- because nothing could go wrong with that combination.

I still can't believe that in Canada you can just walk down to your local corner store and buy fireworks- madness, pure madness! It was a lot of fun, but unfortunately I accidentally left my camera at home in the evening, so no firework photo's for you all- dang!

Lazy Saturday's Are Best Spent In The Sun

After an extra long weekend I find myself back at work, oh but what a pleasantly nice weekend it was! I'm not sure what it is but I always feel terribly out of whack after long weekends, like my body clock has been rattled and it leaves me with a weird feeling of being 'out of it' for a few days.

But enough about that, I thought we should see how I spent this very sunny Saturday just past, the way every Saturday should be spent- with a picnic in the sunshine, great company and delectable food. Fun Fun Fun!

Sinead, Bryan, Liam, Sam and me decided it was indeed perfect weather for a picnic...

So we headed to High Park with an abundance of food and drinks

We sat and spoke about music, old times and the perils of being a policeman

Before packing up our stuff and continuing on our journey to the cherry blossoms

We met the cutest little blue eyed puppy on the way

We strolled through the small zoo in the centre of the park
Before deciding we were drained from the sunshine and headed home

Thus was my Saturday (-:

Back To Blonde

Okay so I know it seems like all I have posted about this last week has been hair related topics, but I promise this is the last one.

Come see all, the first result of me going from Red to Blonde. I'm pretty pleased with it for the moment, even though it looks a bit streaky now, I'm assured next time it will look better.

Au Revoir Folks!
