No Funswick? NO WAY!

Friday, June 05, 2009

I'm leaving work in 10 minutes or less to hit the highway en route to New Brunswick (or, No Funswick as it's not-so-affectionately called), to visit my parents. After this week, which could be accurately described as frantic and/or ridiculous, I'm more than overdue for a little downtime in Frosty Hollow.

Yes, I grew up in a place called Frosty Hollow. Yup--it's about as exciting as it sounds, and is exactly why it's the perfect place to unwind. I have trouble fully relaxing in Halifax. I'm constantly "going" and "doing" in the city and weekends fly by. At home it's like time passes at a different rate and I can really relax there.

This weekend's plans include:

-fishing for little brookie trouts. By "little" I mean teeny tiny. Barely legal. Trouts is an exaggeration. Troutlets? Troutlings? Baby trouts? Is the plural of "trout" even trouts? *brain spasm*

-sleeping in.

-going for a run at the track.

-making a road trip to Moncton to check out the new H&M. YES, WE JUST GOT H&M IN ATLANTIC CANADA TWO WEEKS AGO. This is a bit of an epic occasion!


-reading on the patio.

-visiting my dog and pony show.

-the dreaded engagement photo shoot.

-visiting friends.

Hopefully, being home for a couple days will be just what I need to get relaxed and refreshed for what promises to be an insanely busy week ahead. But we won't think about that just yet. Happy Friday!

  1. My gut tells me the plural of "trout" is also "trout." Sort of like how the plural of "deer" is "deer." I could be wrong (I haven't looked it up), but that's my best guess.

    Have a great weekend...and enjoy H&M! That is such a fun store! :D

  2. Just ventured over from 20SB and thought I'd say hi! Have a good day!

  3. Hope you're all relaxed now! I came to you through some odd blog babes site. I suppose you should feel honored and, honestly, I'm jealous in a weird sort of way.

  4. @Grammarphile I think you're right! H&M was fun. I managed to contain myself to just one shirt!

    Hi Krysten & Dustin :)

    Sophie, I had no idea about that "blog babes" thing...but I had a good laugh when I saw thanks for giving me something to laugh about on a Monday morning :D
