Long long weekend
It's a long weekend here in Canada, and oh, are we ever ready for it. The whole city seems ready for it. Late afternoon it suddenly got hot and everyone was in sandals and t-shirts and planning their escape. We won't be escaping, but that's okay. We've got a soccer tournament, gardens to plant, a big birthday to celebrate, and I'm playing in my first soccer game in twenty-seven years. (re soccer game: If all goes well, I'll report back. If all goes humiliatingly, well, I'll probably report back too.)
Hope to get some good photos of soccer girl and gardens and birthday. I'm borrowing some cameras for a story I'm writing. Curious to see how they perform.
But just now, I'm headed outside to pull laundry off the line. Happy weekend to all!
I'm mother of four, writer, dreamer, planner, runner, photographer, taking time for a cup of coffee in front of this computer screen. My days are full, yet I keep asking: how can I fill them just a little bit more
