Weekend over...

...and it was oodles of fun :) I went to Vancouver and found a neat little Russian store (filled with sooo much chocolate!), also bought some good ESL resource books for 30% off. I love buying books on sale. Well, I just love buying books in general, but getting them on sale brings an extra layer of satisfaction :)

Today I got to soak up lots of sunshine and I finally played tennis, hooray! The tennis courts were packed with eager players, it was awesome. I tried to go to the beach later but there were no parking spaces and it was just way too busy - no room to walk!

Alrighty, it's time for some sleeep. Oh, I tried homemade pizza baked on panini bread today - it was delicious! Lots of mushrooms and red onion, yum yum.

Sweet dreams!


  1. Yay for a fun weekend! That Russian store with the chocolate sounds great - are the chocolates distinctly Russian? I love buying books on sale, too - Peter and I frequent library book sales in the summer so that by the summer's end, our bookshelves are groaning :)

    Glad you were able to play tennis! I've never been very good at tennis, but I like watching good players on the court. It's like a dance! Have a wonderful week!

  2. Most of the chocolates are indeed distinctly Russian, and my parents actually remember them from decades ago! They also have very distinct packaging - different colourful drawings and interesting names. I was pleased to see that most of them contain dark chocolate, nuts, and less sugar than North American chocolates...they're health food really :) Maybe not :)

    Groaning bookshelves, oh my! I love it :) The more books the better :)

    Have you seen Roger Federer play? He's like a ballet dancer - so graceful, light on his feet, and effortless in his movements. It's a beautiful sight :) (He's also quite handsome he he.)

  3. I have seen him play! I agree, he is gorgeous ;)

    Have a wonderful day!
