Hooray for the Weekend!!

Ahhhhh. How splendid to sleep in, relax, and have a leisurely day. It's dark and gloomy at the moment...and I think it will probably rain...but that doesn't put a stop to a fun day :)

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous and summery. I took my D block class on a bit of a field trip. We had a lovely walk by the water, surrounded by magnolia trees, flowers, and boats (and people walking their dogs!). The last stop was Granville Island but we didn't have enough time to explore it much, which was fine by me because I'm directionally challenged and would have gotten us lost :)

After school, I met up with a friend who just recently returned from Panama. She was there for many months and I missed her a lot, so it was wonderful to catch up over tea and share our adventures.

The best part of dinner last night was a creamy zucchini soup. There was no cream in it - just the magic of an immersion blender. I looove soups with a thick texture. Watery soups just don't do anything for me :)

Cheerio and have a magical weekend!


  1. I'm glad you had a wonderful time with your class! I can't think of anything better than to take a field trip on days that are gorgeous and warm. I always felt I learned better on days like that )

    Creamy soups are the best! I'm not a fan of brothy soups either - they just don't fill me up. I love a good pureed squash soup with spices. With bread, it has to be the most perfect meal ever.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. A pureed flavourful soup with a chunk of fresh, grainy, rustic bread just might be my favourite meal :) Yum!
