Every once in a while, we all could use a holiday, and boy, did I need one. So, I took a wee one and just had some summer fun with the Youngling.
taking pics of the Stanley Park wildlife,
and going to Kerrisdale Play Palace (my pic’s blurry, I was laughing so hard! They should have a place like this for adults!).
We watched the moon rise over English Bay
while listening to beautiful music, (this happens to be one of my most favorite pieces of music and one of my most favorite movies, A.I. . This was part of Spain’s music for the fireworks display. Click on the music link above to hear another favorite piece of music of mine that was also part of the display! And yes, you have seen the movie that made this piece of music famous — again. Nice pick for trailer music!)
suffered through a heat wave (we’re still suffering by the way!)
The Granville Island Water Park was the best and we will definitely be going there again next summer.
And, of course, I watched movies,
and re-read my favorite books. (Are you watching Pillars of the Earth on Starz?)
I also managed to write, just a little. I even went to a wedding! (The first one in 6 years, WOW! And it was beautiful.)
I did all those things around the house that needed doing,(I love this book, too!)
I dreamed about taking a cake decorating course (fondant, YUM!),
and tried to enjoy the now and quiet my busy, frazzled mind.
And now I am back.
I hope you had a wonderful time while I was away, and if you haven’t manged to take a break, try and take one — even if it is a wee one — I know you deserve it! 😀
