645. Recent Life | Avicii & Toronto Van Attack

This week was a sad one, due to a couple of different events as I'm sure most of you know already. A few days ago here in Toronto there was a van that drove onto the sidewalk and killed ten people while injuring many more. When I first heard about it I didn't know it was as serious. The more I read about it, finding out the driver's motive and then discovering who the victims were, makes me more uneasy about the whole situation. This is something that has never happened in Toronto before and something we never expected to happen here. When something of this sort happens I think most people think that it could never happen to them. It is really sad and I feel for the families of those affected. Lives can change and be taken away from us so unexpectedly, in an instant, so it's important to never take anything for granted.

Almost a week ago, Avicii passed away which came as a complete shock to me. He was my favourite DJ and I loved pretty much all his songs so I was really sad about this. Celebrity/famous deaths have never affected me in the past. Maybe due to the fact that none of the ones who passed away were ones that I really liked, so this was a first for me. Since then I've been listening to his songs on repeat and I also watched the documentary on him which was released last year ("True Stories") which is really good and provided more insight into why this happened.

In honour, here is my favourite song by Avicii. I made a post on it a few years ago here too since I found it really inspirational. It also describes his own life pretty well:

As always I'm quite behind on my "recent life" posts. Here are some photos taken in the past weeks. I will save (most of) the restaurant ones for the next post.

Toronto harbour
Our weather here is finally, finally starting to get warmer which means more harbourfront walks! I just went there this afternoon actually on a nice dog walk.

Maple Leafs Square
Game 6 of the playoffs, which we won. But unfortunately we lost last night's game 7 so we are out.

The Oxley venison bangers
Venison bangers at The Oxley. I think I order venison every time I see it on the menu somewhere.

Positano puzzle
My boyfriend & I started this Positano puzzle a few weeks ago. It has been many years since I last did an actual puzzle. At first I thought the whole thing would take us maybe 2 hours. So far it has been a few weeks lol (well we don't do it every day)..hopefully it will be done this week and I'll post a photo of the final result. It's fun and kind of therapeutic to do though.

Poop Cafe Toronto
Poop Cafe. Nice to visit for the novelty factor but the egg waffle isn't that good.




  1. Quality posts is the secret to be a focus for
    the viewers to pay a visit the website, that's what
    this site is providing.

  2. I would never have thought that such an attack would happen in Toronto :( I was also shocked about Avicii - Lay Me Down is a song I listen to almost daily and Levels is just genius... :((

  3. My brother suggested I might like this website.

    He was entirely right. This post truly made my day.
    You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this info!
