love letters

i'm busy packing, doing laundry, baking muffins and various other tasks to prepare for our little road trip to the okanagan this weekend. i sure hope the weather picks up a little, but if not, i'm sure we can manage eating lots of great food, drinking some wine and reading good books.

i'll leave you with a favorite song of mine- love letters by ketty lester. it reminds me of home (my brother has a ton of old 45's that he would play and this was on heavy rotation) i love her voice and it is definitely one of my all time faves.

i hope everyone has a lovely long weekend!

yesterday morning while i was walking our dog sara home from the vet, i did a double take at this window. i thought this was a little boy, with blood on his sweater. but it was just a super creepy mannequin child.

today consisted of picking 7 lbs of fresh, organic blueberries at a friends blueberry farm, then being given some fresh veggies from her garden. then a quick stop into the beaches at white rock. so relaxing.

there was a beautiful rainbow outside our window on saturday. i happened to notice it during one of the few hours i was awake. (i was in bed sick most of the weekend)

whenever it rains i always check this one spot, it almost always has a rainbow in it.
