Pretty much done unpacking and going through good luck cards; luv the kite one from Jess!
The move did result in some casualties
> sushi plate broke while we were debating the positioning of the carpet; best practice for next move would be do NOT unpack breakables until carpet positioning has been finalized
> doggie magnets savagely thrown out while SOMEONE packed up our Toronto condo
Overall very happy with our Bermuda house

Saturday, we grabbed coffee at Pilot @ Union Station before I met up with Denise for some shopping at city of craft. I got baby moose rattler from fidoodle and greeting cards from tough luck. Also saw some delicate sumo dolls and beautiful paper cuts. On the way home, I stopped by a Chinese grocery on Spadina and stocked up on tripe and other delightful things.
Him: You bought brand name mustard
Me: Yup, was feeling extra generous the other day
Two. (a few days after we came back from Baffulo)
Him: Did you see the shadows of the birds over the silo?
Me: Yes and it was mesmerizing
Three. (in the ravine under a bridge)
I think: It feels like a cathedral
He says: It feels like a cathedral
As usual, people are chatting about how much it costs to buy a house in Toronto these days. Personally, I’m not too worried since I plan to move into my parents’ place in 2026, when SmartTrack/RER is hopefully complete.
I used to be really into modern homes. And although it is possible to build modern homes that respect non-modern neighborhoods, traveling through Germany makes me appreciate the beauty of consistency. Speaking of consistency, I think it’s nice to maintain a non-modern layout in a non-modern house.
For a while I’ve been saying: I don’t really like blue jeans. Back in April, I got him a pair of navy pants at Theory. Today, he got a pair of gray pants at Banana and two pairs of pants at Zara (navy and black). Yay!
While waiting at Zara, I got a t-shirt with interior print to go with jeans and sandals.
After the Muji visit, I cleared the top shelf.
Me: My bookshelf is more minimalist than yours.
Him: I don’t think so.
Me: To help you reduce clutter, you should gift me le corbusier to hang up in my office.
Him: I don’t think so.
