Okay guys, I don’t have a lot of time, but figured I could get away with a quick post about my tiring but ultimately awesome day thus far!
So focusing on the awesome parts, met up with my mom and bro for a belated birthday lunch at one of our favourite places, the recently-opened second location of The Smoke in Vaughan. I haven’t been there too often yet, so am still working my way through different menu items each time, but damn…everything is SO GOOD!!! Today I had the W.B.B.T.L.C. (Wild Boar Bacon Tomato Lettuce Cheese…I think) with fries and tried the gravy for the first time and OH MY GOD!!! It was all I could do not to drink the rest of it after I ran out of fries.
We even had the smoke apple crisp after, despite the fact that I’d eaten myself into physical pain by that point.

Then we stood outside in the light rain so they could present me with my belated birthday present. My brother lifted the rear hatch of the van to reveal a sweet new Sharp HDTV! What?! Apparently my mom, brother, niece and nephews had gotten together to get me a TV I could use with the Blu-Ray player I’d gotten for free quite awhile ago when I had to use up my Airmiles and switch to Airmiles cash before they expired. Instead of slowly growing obsolete in its box, it’s now hooked up to this beauty TV, and now I can watch Netflix on it instead of my iPad Mini and I can watch the Shomi HD content and everything looks sooooo pretty!
Also, and this is bigger, it’s Brody’s 9th birthday today. I got him a marrow bone for dinner which he’s been working on for the past 2 hours. That boy’s mouth is going to be so sore. Bless.
His mama has been on my mind a lot lately, and I haven’t been sleeping very much and I feel like I have only been home to sleep.
I need a vacation from life.
But holy hell is he ever cute. He is the puppy I love most in the whole world, beyond all reason or measure. I tell him all the time. I love all the puppies – and there are a lot – but none more than him.
That munchkin is the greatest, and a bright shining light in my every day. Just like his mama was. ❤️
