Hello October -  A Journal Entry - October 1st 2020

    Well here were are and it's October! My favorite month! Only because it is my birthday month LOL. I know I am so selfish. Ha!

    On October 3rd it is my special day! But that's another topic; let's move on.

    September moved on pretty fast, but not fast enough for me to have totally enjoyed the weather and the last month of summer happiness.

    I explored Niagara Falls in early September, for a mini getaway with my husband and my daughter, and had a great time wandering Clifton Hill and the surrounding  Niagara Region. 

    See my YouTube video at the end and my travel post here.

    I did a lot of eating out, as I always do because as you must know already, 

    I am such a foodie lover and always love to try new restaurants.

    Here is a couple of them:

    Pho Metro - Vietnamese Cuisine -  located in Scarborough

    My son recommended this place to us and oh.my.god, I am most certainly going back to try other 

    things on their menu.

    Isaan Der - Thai Kitchen - Located at Davisville Village


    I went here with my daughter it is around her area.

    Also down the street from her, we went to this gorgeous rooftop and it's so chill up there!

    A few days ago my daughter and I went to Collingwood for another little getaway. 

    My sister lives there and due to COVID, I wasn't able to visit her. This time I decided to kill two birds with one stone and booked a couple of nights at a new hotel, and made it fun. 

    We visited her in between and at the same time had a blast doing what we wanted to do as well.

    Holiday Inn Express & Suites Hotel is brand new and it was so fun running up and down the hallway being free from anyone being around, (on our floor) well at least for the first night we were there. (Friday) 

    By Saturday it started to fill up. The hotel is beautiful and the staff welcoming. Check out my post about it here.

    The weather was beautiful last weekend!

    This month also acknowledges National Daughter and Son Day. It's nice to have a day dedicated to our children who give us color into our lives. The joy my kids have brought into my life the day they were born I cannot explain, but I cherish all the memories since they were babies. I love them to the moon and back! 

    Last but not least, the COVID situation.

    As of today, the numbers have been unfortunately rising; and so is my anxiety. 

    People have been enjoying the summer weather as expected but also has been throwing caution to the wind as they say, and yup, the numbers have shown, we may be bracing for a 2nd wave. Help us all!

    This is not as we wished for I'm pretty sure and well, we need to really get our gears checked and buckle down.

    I know that it's hard to not be outdoors with such gorgeous weather, but seriously, throwing parties of over the agreed amount of people? Attending massive gatherings at parks without any considerations of social distancing? 

    Having beach parties and leaving all the mess for City workers to clean it up? I still see people inside shopping malls not wearing masks! I'm wearing my mask to protect you, why aren't you giving me the same damn courtesy to protect me?! I don't get it.

    Also, coming out of grocery stores and seeing discarded disposable gloves on the ground, are you kidding me?! 

    Come on now, this is our City, you and I share it, we live it, respect it, and love it. Be good it to it and don't do shit like that.

    Let's be aggressively responsible to ourselves and each other folks. Christmas is soon to arrive and let's make it a happy one, we can do it, right?!

    September was a blast and I'm sorry that it flew by so fast.

    Happy October everyone, be safe. Stay in your small circles. Keep the masks on.
