Herbs, Sunshine and Good Friends

Hello everyone! It’s been a busy week. Alex and Neil dropped by on Sunday and gave me an Amazon gift card for Mother’s Day :). They stayed for a few hours and brought me up to date on all their news. I’m not sure what I’m going to buy yet – maybe put it towards a new motorbike helmet. It was raining of course, so I spent the afternoon watching a chick flick. Not something I do very often, so it was wonderful to just relax for a few hours.


It finally dried up on Tuesday, so Tori made the most of it and put up the patio lights

So pretty – I love them!

We had Neil on Thursday and we started the day by spending the morning in Steveston.

Steveston - Fisherman's Whart

We were going to go to the beach, but it was still a little chilly for that. Instead, we wandered around the wharf. Neil loved all the fishing boats

And then we sat and had ice-cream (chocolate gelato, of course) and mini donuts (Tori’s favourite) before heading off to the Prickly Pear Garden Centre to buy some herbs. We love this garden centre – it has all kinds of cool stuff, inside

and out (I don’t think the cat was for sale 🙂 )

And then off to Ikea to buy a high chair for Neil and have some of their delicious Swedish Meatballs!

Somewhere along the line, we picked up a little wooden train set for him and set it up on the patio when we got home.


He played with it for the rest of the afternoon while we set up our new plants in the back yard

We ended off the week with a bike ride with our friends to Spences Bridge and back on Saturday

Ha ha – Tori thinks his mask is so cool 🙂

It was hot out there – 29 deg. C! Fortunately, the beers were cold. As you can see, I got a little pussy at the bar! LOL.

And a barbecue on Sunday

I love my life!

Until next time …

But First, Tequila
