Looking outside right now, it’s hard to imagine that just last weekend I was close to getting a sunburn while out on a morning walk. Greater Vancouver knows better than to let the sun come out for too long! So the long weekend will be a soggy one, but I’m secretly (or not so secretly) ok with that.
Truth be told, I love the rain. I think you have to, in order to survive on the West Coast. It’s not fun to go out in, unless you have the right gear – rain boots and a proper rain jacket are essential. But my favourite thing about the rain is that it gives you an excuse to stay indoors, relax and only notice it in the background.
If I had a desk (which is close to becoming a necessity), I’d put it in front of my living room window and spend the whole weekend writing while listening to the rain. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?
The low of my week was catching some kind of cold/sinus bug and having to cancel my blood donation appointment. As of last night, I’m starting to feel a bit better, but it was a pretty lazy week because of that. (The worst part was not being able to taste anything I was eating. Don’t you hate that!?)
The high of my week was having a photographer come to my place to take a pic for that MoneySense interview! My floor is still covered in confetti. (I think it’s for their June issue, which should be out in May.)
A blog post I loved was Most Problems Never Have to Be Solved. David is someone I would love to have coffee with. Darn him for being in the prairies.
The best money I spent was $40.40 on 5 bags (5 BAGS!) of fresh produce that’ll last for two weeks. Langley Farm Market in Pitt Meadows is the best discovery I’ve made since moving to Greater Vancouver.
My plans this weekend include going for brunch this morning with a reader turned email friend (yay!), getting some writing done, finishing the book Me Before You and starting Pound Foolish, and hanging out with Ashly (double yay!). Oh, and I still need some sandals for the wedding, which is next weekend! Eek!
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
