Casa Loma and Other Weekend Things

So this weekend was incredibly amazing! C’s friends were in from out of town and we went to visit Casa Loma! Like finally! It was really awesome and totally lives up to the hype… wait there is no hype! Why is there no hype? The place is bloody amazing! There is a tunnel underground and you can walk from one end to the other.

We basically walked from the castle to the red building across that you see in the picture below.

Won’t lie, the tunnel isn’t the best experience when you have asthma but it was worth it. Cause where the tunnel ended, a garage and stables began! I mean seriously, the man had way too many cars. Here are some of my favourites! (Apparently, he was the first one in Canada to have a motorized car and he crashed it on the day he got it because he didn’t know how to brake! waittt whaaat?!)

Then we went on to see some other treasures in this humongous place that someone once called home albeit briefly. Henry Pallett only got to reside there for 15 years.

The place is basically secret passage galore and weird art. Pallett also loved animal skin rugs (someone call PETA) but then again that was the norm back then. Ewww.

More glorious views from the tower! Used to be slums and now it offers such a great view of the Toronto skyline.

100 Happy Days; Finding Happiness : Day 1

Happiness to me is a warm cup of tea in the morning…

A smile on the faces of those I love… The rain on my face on a hot summer day…

A good book……….

It’s ironic that while we get busier with this funny little thing called life, sometimes, just sometimes, we forget to live it. We forget that in order to really live we have to savor every moment and be thankful for each day.

My awesome sauce friend (I was going to say dear but awesome sauce sounds far more awesome!) Casey is currently taking part in the 100 happy days challenge on his site, which you should totally check out because you will get to see his adorable little baby Isaiah amongst other awesome things!

So… he is taking part in this challenge, which I highly recommend that you check out, and I thought to myself, hey! this sounds great! I should do it too! because ever so often I feel low and I don’t want to!

In high school before blogs were a thing, I used to keep a journal which I called and still refer to as my ‘happy book’.

It has little notes from people that I love and care about. Needless to say it made me and still makes me extremely happy whenever I read it. The little book also goes wherever I go!

It was given to me by my sister when I was 18 as a New Years’ present but it ended up becoming much more than that. Thank you sisbug! I love you so much!

P.S: This post was going to be about meeting a friend but this seems more appropriate as a start!
