L'extase du dernier jour de travail

Tomorrow is my last day at work...and then I am on mat leave, another sort of job is awaiting me ;O)
I can't wait for tomorrow 4 P.M.!
I could well swoon with ecstasy.
Demain, dernier jour de travail avant mon congé maternité...Vivement demain 16h!
Je pourrais bien me pâmer d'extase!

Coup de coeur pour Bill Cunningham

Bill Cunningham New York, the documentary film by Richard Press, introduced me to Bill Cunningham, an extraordinary fashion photographer, an ascetic aesthete whose passion for his art cannot but inspire. This old gentleman with his Tati-like gait rejuvenated me through to through. An inspiring, invigorating artist whose uncompromising vision of life rekindled my flame.

If you haven't watched the film yet, run buy your ticket for the next show.

PS: Thank you Chris and Andrea for the good tip!

Heavenly surprise weekend

Because the whole second floor has been undergoing renovations for the last two weeks....

Because our bed and wardrobes have been moved downstairs, in the living room...

Because I have started moving like a beached whale...and because it was my birthday weekend...

 Then, Marco and I decided to get away. We finalized our destination on Saturday morning, just an hour before departure time! Marco booked a mysterious idyllic place that he found through the good tips of our friend Olivia Stren who had written an article on Picton for the Toronto Life. We drove south east for about 2 hours,....
and there we were! Ah, Picton's Claramount Inn & Spa came to our rescue just in time.
 Me, admiring the view from the window in our room, Room 7
the view on Lake Ontario

One of the room's reader's corners.

The sitting room.
This weekend getaway did me a world of good. What a splendid birthday gift! I was treated to a hot saltwater pool, to a prenatal massage, to extremely delicate foods and other delights. Total relaxation. Not much to do anyway as it was a rainy weekend ;O) We stayed in, enjoying the spa facilities and only stepped out to go antique shopping in the area - our treasure hunt had us find 3 amazing 1960s-1970s decorating books, course books edited by Better Homes and Gardens. Perfect!
