I wake up on Monday, tired and a little groggy, but ready for another week of work. I work out of a co-working space in an up-and-coming neighbourhood. I get ready for the day and ask my boyfriend (who is the world’s best pinner-roller) to roll me a little joint filled with this wonderful Sativa, called Grapefruit, for my after-work activities. The day lags but when it hits 6:30 I regain a new wave of energy. I head to my friends place, who lives just around the corner, for an evening filled with crafts, wine, and that precious pinner that’s been in safe-keeping all day.
After a fairly hectic day filled with meeting-madness, I take a nice jaunt across the city for some air and headspace. The days are getting longer and it inspires a quality of rejuvenation. My friend has been writing a memoir and a group of us are her first listeners. We settle around her living room, sprawled across the L-shaped couch, covered in fuzzy blankets and soft cushions. We pass around a little glass pipe filled with Blueberry Kush and let ourselves get engulfed in her story of love and loss, her words echo smoothly around the room, mimicking the lingering smoke in the air.
Being in a long-term relationship, my boyfriend and I try to have a chill night once a week to catch up on what’s been going on and touch base. I prance home, excited for our evening. He meets me at the door and we head to the LCBO together. After we pick out an eclectic assortment of craft beers, we drop them off and take a walk. We head towards Trinity Bellwoods and pull out the joint he’s pre-rolled. This time it’s Sour Diesel. Passing it back and forth, I let the high wash over me and let the stress from the week roll off. We are a bit chilly, so we head home and light a fire. It will be one of the last of the season.
Bridesmaids dress shopping—how do you make that more fun? I can think of a couple ways, but one in particular (read: some edible magic filled with CBD). Enough said.
