Summer Holidays 2018 | Week 1

I feel like for the summer I should do a weekly review of what I did (what I didn't do) besides my blog posts. Like a diary of sorts, I just hope to do this in a way to help me to do more this summer. My plans are to sew something, bake, and read a book each week this summer.
I hope you enjoy :)

So last week it was Canada day and like I said in my last post I spent it all by myself. Turns out here in QC all rent leases are over at the end of June, meaning that moving day is July 1st. I was shocked by this, for as a Canadian that felt somewhat like a slap in the face. Anyway, that Sunday I woke up got ready to go to church when I come down to realize that everyone is dressed to go to work, not to church. Turns out that friends of my parents were moving and they had not told me about it (maybe they did, but I forgot) and since they were short on time I couldn't change and was left behind. It was also one of the hottest days, it was about 38℃ with lots of humidity. All alone with a cake, I had made (which I forgot to take a finished picture). It was a long day, but the friends finally moved to a bigger place and my parents helped them move and be there for them.

It's the End (of June, that is)

Well, half the year is now gone and I have done both so much and so little.
The day after tomorrow it's Canada day! That means it's been a year since I moved to Quebec, wow, where has the time gone? My family and I are going to be having a small get together to celebrate. I will (obviously) be baking a cake and will be on decorating duty. Is there anything special you do for Canada day?

This week I did my final Francisation exam and finished my level 4 French! There are 8 government French levels and so I am half-way there. That's right your girl knows how to speak enough French to get a job, well enough to have a conversation with others and still be understood. Fortunately (or unfortunately)  I won't' be going back as I will be starting university this coming September. Since it's all in English and downtown Montreal is mostly English, I won't' have to use too much French.
