My Weekly Adventures: Work Work and more Work (and a bit of fun)

Welcome to My Weekly Adventures! You can’t physically see me but I’m breathing a sigh of relief.  This later than usual post goes up after I came home from work for some the final day of overtime of this week long craziness.  Along with that, this morning right after I took the car out, I realized that my car’s tire was punctured and totally deflated so after a ton of messing with it and Murphy’s Law 100% in effect, I think everything is generally okay, except you know, having to get a new tire since my husband couldn’t patch it.  I was going to give you all a meh post with just some random stuff to fill up space but decided that I needed some writing time to inject some positivity and get ready for the next week.

Enough of rambling, lets go!

Meow Box Unboxing and Subscription Update!

Meowbox

In case you missed it, in the last two weeks, I did a little Meowbox unboxing.  It was a one month subscription for April for Flea’s 5th birthday.  She loved it as you can see and the toys are occupying her time and energy quite a bit. You can see that post HERE.  While the unboxing isn’t very entertaining, I was super excited to have playtime on camera with Flea and despite the camera having to move around, she was quite cooperative. I had decided to cancel my subscription but the lovely folks at Meowbox managed to help me out a little but long story short, expect another Meowbox unboxing in the next few months. 😉

Garden Planning

Crimson Star

Raspberry

The weather here in Montreal is being difficult with nights still hitting rather below average weather so the plants are growing slowly but there are signs of life in the garden.  The one place I would have enjoyed slow growth was my “vegetable garden” in the making.  May’s big project is to get rid of all the grass and turn it into a vegetable garden I want.  Its going to be a labor intensive job but one I’m really looking forward to.  I’ve already planned out how the container gardening to decorate the patio will be already so its just that last bit.  Meanwhile, I have gotten in some time to trim and prune and clean up the garden. Things are looking good. 🙂

Saturday Two-Part Outings with Friends

Its been a while I’ve hung out with my girl friends so when we decided to go check out the L’Oreale sale, I was all for it.  Sure, it meant waking up early on a Saturday and probably getting lost (since that’s just expected when I drive to a new place), it was still tons of fun.  There was a lot of people there but the stock wasn’t particularly great.  I bought some sun protection lotion and Garnier shampoo and bought a Biotherm Men Urban Survival kit for my husband. Then, we headed for a spontaneous brunch to Le Cartet,.  I recently did a restaurant post on that one HERE.  Then we headed to get some ice cream/sorbet at Le Bilboquet.

4 mini degustations at Le Bilboquet

They had this special called 4 mini degustation which is 4 mini tasting portions for $5 (tax included). I chose raspberry, mango-coconut, strawberry-pear and passion fruit. The mix was so delicious! We sat around in the square with these lovely little decorations below.

The weather was perfect and the sun was so warm as we sat and chatted.  It was great.  After I went home to relax and do a few chores, it was time to head out with the husband to hang out with his friends for a little tradition started last year of Poutineville and Chocolat Favoris.  I skipped getting something at Chocolat Favoris since I had my sorbet fix already. However, here is my poutine and the husband’s.

Mine had hot dog, lactose-free cheese and shoestring fries with poutine sauce. My husband’s was with sweet potato fries, curd cheese, and some meats that I can’t remember.

Before we headed to Chocolat Favoris, the whole group went for a walk since we all had eaten so much to just help digest.

It was a super nice walk that started off a little chilly but it was really fun. It was great time during the day with good company and delicious food.  A perfect day to relax and have fun and just take a break from work.

Product That I Love: Frends Earphones

I’m not sure who watched the unboxing of the FabFitFun Winter box a while back but I got these Frends Earphones which I haven’t used because my earphones were (and are) still doing great.  I brought to work today to listen to music while working and OMG! I love them! The sound quality is fantastic. I think possibly one of the best ones I’ve ever tried on.  That is really all I wanted to mention. It seems that they only have the headphones now. But man, this is the FabFitFun page on that right HERE! Mine are white but I’m in love!

Updates and Collabs, ETC

Its been month that I’ve talked about changing the domain.  I’m still working on it.  Don’t worry about it.  I don’t talk about it because this month has been a massive crazy mess.  May still looks really busy with a lot of events and dinner dates and all that stuff.  Plus, I’ve been busy with some projects and of course, gaming posts over at That Moment In.

In case you didn’t know, I’ve been doing Game Breaks and Game Reviews over at That Moment In.  We’re also working on something else for the gaming section and if all goes well, I’ll be posting about it soon! 🙂 On that note, if you have any interesting games that you think I’ll like playing, please suggest! I’ve been checking out a lot of mobile games and there has been some surprising finds.  I also work on gameplay so I’ve been editing videos a lot more.  Its both time consuming and a lot of fun! The last review post that went up was a collab post with Jordan of Epileptic Moondancer for an indie game called Layers of Fear.  You can check that out HERE!
