World, i have a confession, i am not a morning person. I think i've mentioned it once or twice on the blog, but i feel like i have to mention it again for the new followers (Hi!). However, this summer, i've been waking up at about 6 am 3 or 4 times a week to go on my morning walk. And to make matters worse, i've been waking up and going about my business each day on less than 6 hours of sleep(!). It was torture during Summer School because the two courses i did required a lot of attention and the work was tedious for each, but alhamdulillah, I managed to get that over and done with; as Borat would say, "great success".
So when some friends and I spent last night at Mya's, I was alright with the idea of waking early to go to a bakery at 7 am, i was just unsure of how my day would pan out. Usually, I crash on the couch after my walk, watch some Arabic t.v then spend time on the internet before making a royal mess in the kitchen. That is what I call a productive day (don't judge! I'm on a break). But today, after our walk to and from the bakery, i felt rather refreshed which for me isn't how i describe my mornings, especially when it's raining; or in this case drizzling. It was nice being out and about with my friends. Actually, it was a rather beautiful morning after a fun filled evening with my best friends. So the walk was the icing on the cake! My day turned out pretty relaxed, i spent more time at Mya's before coming back home and parking my behind on our couch for some more t.v time. I am loving this break. Honestly, since enrolling at varsity, i haven't had this much down-time, and it's something that requires a little getting used to.
Oh and the bakery, everything, and i mean everything looked ah-mazing! And to think i've been up every Friday at 6 am and haven't ventured down to this fantastic shop. That's it, next Friday, i'm going for more goodies.
Presenting, a.k.a the Friday Shop
We stopped on the way for some photos (=p), this is the view from the Stuart Street over bridge. On a sunny day, you'd be able to see the city more clearly, but there's something about this picture that i really like.
If you follow Shahirah Elaiza's blog, you've probably read this post on The Friday Shop.
Hope you all have a great weekend! Xoxo
