Weekend Parking

My ten-day-weekend didn’t get off to a very auspicious start, in spite of my amazing gold-star Dance Central performance on Friday night.

Saturday was cold and rainy and miserable. Taylor and I went to the bank and ended up soaked to the skin. I had to dog my wool duffel coat out to wear to the farmer’s market, it was so freezing!

It cleared up in the afternoon, so once Sym had been picked up I dragged Taylor around the city looking for nail polish and more Unicornos. Unfortunately the Unicornos had all sold out again, but I did buy white and red glitter nail polish for the Canada Day nails I’m doing later this week.

We also took Kichou and Georgie to play at Emery Barnes dog park. I spent a lot of time there this weekend.

Sunday was another story: gorgeous and sunny and AWESOME!


I’d extracted a promise from Taylor that we’d go to the beach on any sunny days, but we wanted to bring the dogs so we decided to go to the beach-adjacent park instead.

A Floridian friend once expressed disbelief that it was warm enough in Canada to go to the beach, this picture is for her.

As usual, I mostly took pictures of my dog.

Taylor was also there.

As was I. Or my butt, at least!

After the beach Taylor had to go to bed since he had work that night, but I had a whole evening of freedom- Sym was staying over at her dad’s house. I napped, and took Georgie to Emery Barnes again (and unfortunately didn’t take my camera because there were LITRALLY the most adorable dogs there), and finished off the weekend by rewatching season one and part of season two of Parks & Rec. Of course, I didn’t REALLY finish my weekend because I’m off all this week. Yay ten-day-weekend!

  1. I don’t know if I’m that friend, but I have to point out that your definition of warm is probably my definition of “oh time to put on my parka!” What was it, like 60 F?

      1. 66 is jacket weather, I don’t care how many palm trees there are, THAT IS WINTER. I don’t get into the ocean unless it feels like a bathtub. I want to be more warm in the water than I am out of the water.
