and a recap of the events yesterday.
I am officially retired as of today!
It's been a couple of months short of 25 years with the school district.
Packing up and saying goodbye to my colleagues was difficult...
but I am THRILLED to be able to start a new chapter.
Last day of work OOTD
I wore this soft white and grey hued Hermes scarf
my grey Lands End cashmere cardigan
Gap 1969 boyfriend jeans and black Mee Too ballet flats.
I got a chuckle when I noticed that Chester had posed in the photo...
if you have been reading my blog for awhile you might remember that he hopped into the dryer
when my back was turned and rode out a couple of spins when I turned the dryer on...
the noise and thumps were so loud I thought something was wrong with the brand new dryer
boy was he ever lucky!
I think that was one of his nine lives used up
Our BFF's met up with us last night and we went out on the town!
I used my my WW weekly Point Allowance and enjoyed a burger with yam fries...no bun!
We arrived early as there was a special event...
The Royal Canadian Scottish Regiment
pipe and drum band were playing outside the entrance
to a crowd of tourists and locals.
Aren't these stunning?
Waterglass Studios designed and created all the light fixtures
Intricate details and period lamps
all blend together to create a warm ambiance.
loved these white foxtail blooms
set inside tall crystal cylinders
I am a fan of bevelled glass
this section of the pub is quite cozy and private.
I ran several errands
shopped for groceries
did some laundry and ironing.
I headed out to French Vanilla for the latest edition of Jeanne d'Arc Living
when I was browsing the shop I found some gorgeous linen tea towels!
Sheila has such a flair for all things French
her shop is a treat to visit.
These are thick and plush and feel soft at the same time.
I adore linen towels...
It is lovely and hot outside.
The weekend weather forecast is favourable...
HOT and SUNNY!
Canada Day is being celebrated on July 1st...
there will be musical events and fireworks.
