Every once in a while the universe blesses or gifts you with a day that reminds you that magic exists. A day that makes you fall in love with the world, your honey and yourself all over again. Today was my day! We drove up to Skookumchuck Narrows where Jervis and Sechelt inlet meet. There's an easy 50 minute hike from the parking lot to the narrows that takes you through a mossy forest and past a beautifully calm, pristine lake.
We watched the sea lions surfing the waves and saw pinky purple starfish and anemones tucked into the rocks. We sat and canoodled with the sun on our backs. We drank beer and ate burgers at the pub while watching the hummingbirds battle it out for their chance at the feeders. We sang at the top of our lungs to Cat Stevens on the windy car ride home.
Happy Easter weekend to you, my bloggy friends. I wish you magic filled days and nights!
Sunday, Sunday...Sitting outside on the back patio in the sunshine,
and a beer,
and some bbq'd wings,
and some Bob Marley,
Today, I put my hummingbird feeder up after a hummingbird whizzed noisily past my head while I was out thinking about where to plant my new bulbs. Can't wait to watch them feed! OH! OH! OH! - I just watched one land and have a sip! Yay.
Today's been a catch up day. Had guests all weekend again which was great so today is back to the reality of emptying the laundry basket, dishwasher, recycling...and getting some more vitamin d in the back yard. Our uber-gardener neighbour stopped by last week with a big bag full of coffee grounds (thanks Starbucks!) to add to our flower beds. Apparently it's very good for the soil so that was another project I crossed off my to-do list today. http://www.sustainableenterprises.com/Business/coffeefert.htm
Oh yeah, I also caulked around the windows on the outside of the house. Am I handy, or what?!?
George is on his way home and the sun is still shining. Maybe it will be warm enough to dine outside this evening? Or is that pushing it:)? Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
Oh yeah, we also had the ceremonial planting of our lilac tree this weekend. I LOVE lilacs!

People's stories fascinate me - I love to be inspired and challenged. I also love the smell of fresh sheets, newly mown grass, and campfires. I love the sand between my toes and the sun on my back. Travel is in my blood and I love learning about new cultures around this beautiful world!
