I love it when weekends start a little earlier - for example, on a Thursday. This weekend began just like that, with a visit to my Italian friend Emanuela. She made me some tiramisu herself. I probably shouldn't say that every Italian women is an excellent cook, and when you eat something made by her, your state can only be described with the word "Heaven". It's very convenient when you have such a friend living across the street.
This is the view of High Park and Lake Ontario from Emanuela's apartment.
Another sign of a good weekend is when you don't rush to go shopping, but instead just take some pictures. Every year, we like to look at the window displays in Holt Renfrew. These days, I regret that I haven't taken pictures of it every year. Usually, it's really something special. This year, they puzzled me a little. They tend to pick a topic and devote the display to it. I think I could identify this year's theme as "Swan-Goose-Penguin Lake".
Certain subjects - such as a snowman hiding behind the column without a hat on, or the penguins finding clown shoes puzzled me even more.
When I saw these marching band drummers who seem to be snowed in, I decided to stop being surprised at anything.
This year, I really liked the oversized deers at the Eaton Centre.
Also, this Christmas tree, decorated with Swarovski crystals, which rotates, catching the light directed at it, impressed me very much.
So, how did you spend your weekend?
