Long weekend recap

Yes, it was a long weekend for me here in Ontario - we had a beautiful day (a fully beautiful weekend really). This was one of those weekends where I didn't think I was all that busy, but was nowhere near ready to go back to work this morning! Thankfully it was a long weekend for me (our recently appointed Family Day).

This weekend we did some shopping (a great thin wool turtleneck and Tahari snakeskin print blouse for me, a couple of new suits for the Mr.), went to Kitchener-Waterloo for dinner with my grandmother, a major house clean, laundry, groceries, a relaxing pain-au-chocolat and coffee out, a really nice long walk, and even a little painting project that was drummed up over a bottle of wine during dinner on Sunday! (don't worry, we waited until this morning to do the project :) ). It was a really nice, relaxing weekend - just what I need to get through February!


PS - did you notice that it's staying light out until 5:45 now? Oh happy day...

PPS - the Mr. is currently making a prime rib roast on the bbq, with carrots, roasted potatoes, and bread as sides. Heaven.

I LOVE that is it still light out at 5:45. More time for running in the sun. I too had a lovely weekend and soaked in every second of the long weekend. Your blog added to my relaxation and contentment. You're great!

Mmmm your dinner sounds fantastic! I think it's time I rescue my BBQ from the confines of my backyard shed (I put it away before I went to Calgary last fall).

YUM all around - to the coffee and the dinner that the Mr. is fixing up. Ugh, I was so bummed to have to go back to work today - it definitely took at least 2 hours to get into the swing of things.

dajana, all kinds of lovely said...

Your first "p.s." makes me very happy, too. I can't wait for spring to hurry up and get here already!

That's it, I'm moving back to Ontario:) We do not have a Family Day holiday here in BC so it was business as usual. Glad you enjoyed the day!

I'm SO happy that it's getting lighter in the evenings! Yay spring!
