Last week after a couple of days out, I kept the rental car for the week. It was so nice to have some freedom in Toronto. I went to the beach with a friend, then just spent the afternoon at hers with her and the kids. I went out to a little lavender farm near Hamilton. It was really pretty and smelt amazing as soon as I got out of the car. I spent an evening at a friends house eating pizza, chatting and teaching her how to knit (we all seem to be at it right now). It really hit me on the way home how much I will miss her and how I just wish I could take some people with me. It has been nice just hanging out at friends houses, I havent been able to do this much here without a car, and I have never had an apartment fit for entertaining.
I used the car to go to Kingston on Thursday with a pal. We went to get Butter Tarts from Bettys Butter Tarts in Coburg on the way as they were recommended. They were amazing butter tarts! Soooo good. I liked mine so much I wore some in my hair and down my top all day. I dropped my friend at her appointment and pottered around Kingston. I had a pint in the sun at a pub I have been to a few times before, I chatted to a Cornish man I met at the Farmers Market I explorer, browsed the shops, had some food and a milkshake and headed back to the city.
I dropped the car back on Friday morning and went for a walk with a friend. It was so hot and humid, we ended up shopping for wool and needles and sitting in the knitting shop cafe for a few hours relaxing. Pub grub and home. I slept for a crazy 16 hours!
