Birthday Recap (in pictures)

25 July 2014: It was my birthday so I took a morning bicycle ride in St. Thomas through old neighbourhoods. Took photos along the way. Finished the day off with supper at Bella Jack's with my Dad (who wore the sombrero hat for me) and a short stroll in Pinafore Park.

28 July 2014: made a voice post (that currently won't embed itself into an LJ post, d'oh!) Let's Talk About Me Now? Rambling update about WSIB, mental health & how I celebrated my recent birthday.

My bicycle ride received some interesting feedback...
