fairy dust

Time: 10:21pm (That’s it?!?! I am sooooo tired)

Location: on the couch

Weather: nice and sunny today, but not too hot

This is going to be a short one, just to make my conscience feel good. If you’re looking for a good read, scroll down and read my last entry for Barcelona.

I honestly can not believe that it is Friday already and that tomorrow we are going back to the mountain! I am so excited! The weather is supposed to be nicer, fingers are crossed!

So, just a couple things I have to comment on:
The local horse that hangs out by the playground
all the time and suffocates me when I run by

I spent Wednesday with Iness since her gymnastics training was cancelled and Marwann was gone at a birthday party of laser tag. I don’t get to spend as much time with Iness as I do with Marwann, so it was really nice.

We spent a good amount of time working through her English activity book and playing another English matching game. I was impressed by how much she knows!
People here are seriously into roses.
Sometimes I feel like Im in Wonderland...

Marwann and I usually do the baking around here, and I have been waiting to bake some cookies, you have no idea! So this was the perfect opportunity for Iness and me to bond over some cookies.

I have a recipe that I like to stick to, but of course we’re missing an ingredient: cornstarch. So I scratch that recipe and use the one on the chocolate chips’ package. It was oddly simple. Needless to say it was not a good recipe. Not only did the cookies turn out super flat, they also burnt! Which is partially my fault, but we went on the minimum heat for the minimum time! Charred to bits!
Cookie Dough really is magical.

On the plus side, Iness had an awesome time baking her first ever batch of cookies and had her first ever spoonful cookie dough! It was so magical!

Thursday night Sophie taught me how to make couscous. Who knew that such a delicious dish is so simple! The key is to having a good blend of spices. Sophie showed me a trick to get your couscous really fine, so now I am a couscous master!! Mmmmmm…
The Loonie one of you sent me...

my return, went to a much better cause.

Also yesterday, Iness lost a tooth. When I commented on how the Tooth Fairy will be visiting, nobody had the slightest clue as to what I was talking about. They know all about the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause, what’s the deal with the Tooth Fairy? Turns out the Tooth Fairy here is actually a mouse. Fancy that; a mouse crawling under your pillow and depositing you some coins. Not quite as lovely as a Fairy now is it?

In the morning Iness found that the Tooth Fairy had quite the flight during the night…



  1. "a mouse crawling under your pillow "

    Interesting, I'm sure Auntie Marcia is happy she lives in Canada and not France.

  2. You will have to make us some cookies when you get home :) It looks like she enjoyed her baking session.
    Going to the mountain seems like going to the lake for some people - a second or weekend home. Have a good weekend.

  3. Dad - Exactly what I was thinking hehe
    Mom - The Mountain is the best :D:D but i dont think we're going back... :(
