This is the best weather we've had for a May 2-4 weekend in a LONG time. Sunny, hot, and just so perfect. I have tried to make the most of it...here's a glimpse at what we got up to...
Saturday started off with heading to the fabric store to finally look for some fabric options for the stools I nabbed from the curb a while ago (more on that later this week).
Then we added "spice" to the weekend - we hit up the garden store and got planting! We planted some herbs and a few potted plants (tomatoes!) to kick off the planting season.

chives, mint, basil
oregano, thyme, parsley
Sunday we hopped on our bikes for some sugar...Sugar Beach that is...
we just love biking the Don Valley trails down to this beach in the middle of the city!
Sunday night we had friends over for a BBQ:
ribs cooked low and slow on the BBQ with hickory chips (sorry...didn't get a photo of the finished product!)
homemade butter tarts, made by yours truly...yumm...
Our al-fresco dining was topped off with a fireworks show at the end of our street! These people are serious about fireworks, way better calibre than you would expect from a random end-of-street showing!
Today I'm realxing (aka blogging), and then we're heading out for our first golf game of the year...if you're on the course hopefully you don't hear "FORE" from me too much :)
Hope everyone had / is having a great long weekend....off to enjoy the sun!
