Sunday

weekend moments: Night skating, exotic fruit, and other adventures

How was your weekend, folks? Mine was a little adventurous.
Starting with this strange looking fruit that I found at the grocery store and felt impelled to buy. Turns out it's called a "dragon fruit" or pitaya... I guess it's kind of like a pink kiwi. I love trying new fruit!

On Saturday we braved the cold and hiked over Mt Royal to Beaver Lake to go night skating.
 To my surprise, we weren't the only crazy ones enjoying the freezing cold mountain on a Saturday night. I love Montreal for that.
It certainly wasn't warm, and we didn't stay out too long, but it was beautiful.


On Sunday morning I had a few friends over for a ladies only brunch... and we pigged-out for hours!

Then I spent the rest of my sunday reading on the couch... don't you just love the weekend?!

I need to be more adventurous with fruit. I'm always so afraid to try new ones but that looks so cool!

It looks like you had a great weekend! The night skating reminded me of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", one of my favorite movies.

Looks like a terrific weekend! I tried dragon fruit in Barcelona a couple of years ago - quite delicious, and it must be one of the prettiest fruits in existence. Very girly with that pink, white, and black color scheme going on!

I was MUCH lazier than you, i admit. I only went out to go to the post office and to walk the dog. Otherwise... I stayed inside, on the couch. So I had no idea that there was night skating at beaver lake! I never even really thought aout it for day skating either I guess. It's crazy but I've only ever been up there ONCE. And that was over 5 years ago!
And that brunch looks DELISH!

Great idea for the skating. I never thought of going to the Mont-Royal to skate. I'm making that my next outdoor activity. Thanks!

Your weekend sounds lovely, sweetie and the fruit looks so interesting:) Happy day

Ashleigh said...

So fun - all of it!! I thought that fruit was a mix of several things placed in a turtle formation, it's so cool looking!
Go you guys for braving the weather, this is the first winter that I've accepted the cold. I used to hibernate but this year I'm forcing myself to trudge on through, I'm actually getting used to it!
