The local coffee shop - This is a must. Pretty much the first thing Jason and I look for in our new neighbourhood is a cozy little cafe that we can spend our Sunday mornings in. Relaxing with a large latte and a good book is one of my favourite things to do on my days off.
The closest library - As many of you know I am a big book worm. This hobby can be very expensive if like me you choose to spend many hours in bookstores. I realized eventually that my budget would not always allow me to buy as many books as I would like. But renting them from the library is just as great, especially when you realize you may never read a particular book again.
A friendly pub - We don't go out that often buts its always nice to go out and have a few drinks, watch a hockey game or catch up with friends. Its nice to have a pub a few blocks away from home. Nothing better then celebrating the weekend with a glass of wine.
Farmers market - Whenever possible I do try and buy my groceries from local suppliers. I love the treasures you can find from the artists that set up their booths here. One of my favourite things to buy is local honey. It always tastes so amazing. I add it to everything I can.
