On Sunday Geoff & I decided to procrastinate cleaning our apartment and instead went for a nice walk, park (Dufferin Grove) to park (Queen’s) and back, stopping at Zine Dream 5 along the way, at a photo booth in the new Brooks Brothers store, and at La Carnita for dinner. July was dry, but it’s rained so much lately that everything has gone green again.
Geoff was in Germany last week for work and took some beautiful pictures with the Olympus Stylus Epic (I will show you—I love that camera, and his pictures are so dreamy). We finished off the last roll on this walk, like a couple of suckers who still use film.
The above is one of my favourite neighbourhood gardens.
We stopped to loiter at Wong’s Garden Centre. I like how Geoff is in focus in the cooler’s glass.
Just checking my phone as usual, hiding behind my hair, posing with my cool double-sided pretzel tote by Caitlyn and Sandi, which I picked up during the Zine Dream pit stop (I put the Wild Nothing one inside). I posted a similar picture on Instagram and got a lot of comments on my jacket: it’s a jean jacket from the thrift store that I bleached until it nearly turned white a few years ago, and I recently was inspired by Bre’s DIY on Of a Kind to dye it. I used a grey dye and it turned out this colour.
More Zine Dream treats: a print from Good Plant, a zine by Eau Claire, other side of the pretzel tote.
Cat spotting tally on this walk: 2, although I saw 2 others while out on a run earlier in the day.
