The other day I had a realization, when it comes to exercise I am like a snowbird. Many people do 3 – six months or as long as they can here during their cold months.
Right now we are experiencing a lot of rain and major cold front and I cannot bear the thought of getting in the pool to exercise, truth be told for the past few months. I decided to work with that and find an alternative to help me get my abs back and hula hooping is doing just the trick. I can keep it spinning for at least 20 minutes. I have also developed some stretches and other exercises with the hoop.
After exercising, I decided to take a desk job break today in favor of going with Dennis to Cg Esthetic and doing field work taking pictures. Dennis had asked borrow my phone to book a haircut with Carole, I told him I would sort it out and knew I could probably find her on the coconut phone as she has wifi in her new location at Fairdale plaza. I booked the time and sent her a few pics from the Brad Pitt Channel commercial so she would know what he was looking for. The new shop looks great and she has some really cool things for sale in addition to the haircare products and barefoot sandals. Rob is doing these great lamps made from recycled bottles and beach bits. If you are looking for a new San Pedro souvenir for your house, these are definitely cool. She also has these really nice edible hibiscus flowers that go in your wine. They open up when submerged and they help the bubbles last longer. It was good catching up and I found out Carole’s Aunt Denise who tries to snowbird as often as she can is coming back for a month. Bet that is perfect timing for her I am sure it is cold in Montreal right now.
Fast forward to 7:00am the next day.
As was editing yesterdays pictures I got to thinking how lucky I am that my cold, wet Tuesday turned into a dessert crawl with Dennis.
After Carole’s Dennis suggested we hit Kakaw for truffles and I was not going to argue. He was thinking we could each get one but I knew already I was doubling my pleasure. Asking me to choose between a dark chocolate truffle and chocolate covered honeycomb toffee was just not going to happen. Since we were already being bad, we decided to continue on and do DandiE’s for some more sweet goodness. I opted for black raspberry sorbet with a hot fudge bulls eye and he had Rum Raisin with special gravy.
Not long after we arrived it turned into a bit of a party, which is not surprising with Eileen behind the counter she always makes people feel special and adds spice to life. A couple of Twins saw the birthday section on the whiteboard and asked if there was a birthday special as it was their birthday. Eileen proceeded to clear the board and give Holly and Heather star billing, did candles on their custard and we all sang happy birthday.
What a great afternoon. Holly and Heather, hope your day got better and you found the chocolate mint body spray at the Belize Chocolate company. I bought bottle and was sharing it out at DandE’s, it is to die for and is definitely in my tacogirl top 10 souvenirs list along with Robs bottles.
