Hello March!

It was such a lovely day out today. It has been so bitterly cold and windy lately that I haven't been outside very much. But today the sun was shining and the air smelled of spring.

After class, I headed over to the Waterloo Park with my lunch (a very yummy falafel pita) and sat by the lake quietly munching. For such a beautiful day, there weren't many people about, which was nice since it made everything seem so calm and still.

When I had finished my pita, I carefully walked along the end of the pond to my favourite spot. There is a little bridge there, tucked out of the way and surrounded by trees and bushes. I just stood there for a long time, watching two ducks swimming together.

It's times like those when I wish I had my camera, a sketchbook, a notebook, anything, in order to try and capture that moment forever. Everything was so perfectly calm and tranquil. After a while my hands were starting to get quite cold so I carefully trudged back to the main path.

The photo above was actually taken a couple years ago at a different park but it reminded me of today.


On a completely unrelated note, look what I just bought :)

I don't buy clothes online very often since it makes me feel like I am gambling. I have no idea if it will fit correctly or if the colour will even suit me but it was just too much of a deal to pass up. It's from the 1940's and was only $20!!! It does have a stain on one of the pockets (which I plan on covering with a small piece of lace) and isn't in the best condition so I suppose that explains the price, but isn't it cute?? I may have to get it altered though, since I think it will be too large around the bust for me. Oh well. I will be eagerly awaiting the mailman each day until it arrives :)
