(long) weekend... and birthday love!

with the last few days being full of
paul's birthday fun (!!)
a big house cleanup
a trip to toronto
and a fall down the stairs
(resulting in a sadly swollen & sore foot)
i haven't had the chance to give a weekend update!

was paul's birthday
and i made him a delightful breakfast
& raisin tarts (his favorite)
before we prepared the whole house
for the arrival of our friends to the birthday party.
with the addition of a ping pong table to our basement
(our christmas present to ourselves),
we had quite a lot of fun playing & hanging out with people all evening
while paul played deejay & bartender.

was a day full of snow
and i'm so happy to now look out my window
and see the ground covered with
several inches of fluffy white beautifulness.
the day ended unfortunately
as i took a tumble down our stairs and landed hard
on top of my right foot,
causing a lot of pain and swelling.
since i was still limping today,
i went in to see a doctor who promptly sent me in for an xray.
i'm currently hoping my first metatarsal bone isn't broken
(at least i learned a new word out of it!)
but secretly i've always thought
having a broken bone might be a little fun.
since i wouldn't even get a cast if it is broken,
maybe it would be better if it was just a bruise.
for now, i'm feeling pretty helpless as poor paul
cleans up, makes meals & goes to work
while i try to follow doctor's orders and stay off my foot.

paul & i took a trip into toronto for record shopping
(instead of birthday presents he just wanted
a day to explore toronto's record shops)...
well, i sat in a coffee shop and nursed my sore foot
while he shopped for records.
luckily for me, i was able to fit my foot into my cushy
ugg boots without too much uncomfortableness
(they are really like giant pillows, so what could be better?)
and i got to sit in one of the many toronto starbuckses
and enjoy their christmas music & a peppermint mocha
while paul shopped to his heart's content.
he even found a treasure for me...

i'm trying to figure out how to get everything done
before leaving town on thursday
to head back to victoria for the holidays!

...i foresee lots of limping around the house in my near future.

i hope your weekend was wonderful.
