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

Friday, June 29, 2018
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.

Speaking of university, I have already chosen all of my courses but I still have a vague idea of what I am going to do in my life. I do hope that this blog will go wherever God leads it and that I will still be able to blog (more than now anyway). One of my university fears is that I won't be able to become friends with anyone and that I will lead a solitary life *shudders* My other university fear is that *whisper* what if I never find love? *dramatic sigh* Anyway I honestly can't wait (well I can) to go to uni and start a new chapter of my life.

Now that I've finished school I hope that I will be able to get a job and be able to spend more time sewing, baking, and blogging. I can't believe it's been over 8 months since I've started blogging, thank you to all who have been with me since the beginning, I hope you'll still be here when Plaid and Sugar turns 1.
My plans for this summer, besides the ones above, is to go to Vieux Montreal and see the gorgeous buildings and architecture and to meet more people my age. I went camping last weekend and hope I'll be able to go again with my family.

Near Morin-Heights

 That's all for now and hope you have a great weekend. What are your plans for this summer? For Canada day? Do you speak another language? or have you had to move to a new place and learn a new one? And lastly: do you have any feedback about this blog?

Have a great Canada day!!


  1. This is a lovely post! Don't have too much fears for university, you'll find friends in no time. I had the same fear before I started uni and it all turned out fine. It's really important that you dare to take the first step! I can't relate to the finding love thing, because I still haven't found love yet... Might also be because most of my study field are girls and I'm not looking for them ;)
    My plans for the summer are visiting London, Valencia and somewhere in the Netherlands, the rest of the time I'll be tutoring Dutch to children that recently moved to my town (somewhere in Belgium) and I'll be working as well to have some extra cash. I actually speak five languages and three of them fluently (English, Dutch and German) and I'd love to improve the two other ones (French and Spanish).
    I really enjoyed reading this post and I think your blog looks really nice! I love how your lay out is simple yet perfect. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you so much for your comments, Chloe.
      Wow, 5 languages! Besides English, I speak Spanish fluently (maternal tongue) and now learning french. Since French and Spanish are from the same family they have (in some cases) very similar grammar structure which makes it easier to learn. Though there are times where I felt like pulling my hair.
      I am glad you have the opportunity to travel and teach this summer. I hope you enjoy it and make lots of new memories:)

  2. Hope you get more time to do some of those things you love a bit more now! I also can't believe half of the year has gone already, it's ridiculous!
