Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend

a cold & rainy few days | around the house
fireworks, in the rain, from our balcony
a wee shopping spree | a lazy sunday

I really don’t have much to report about this particular weekend as I accomplished virtually nothing of significant value. Justin headed to the cottage (golfing with the fam!) and I opted to stay back and get a few things done around here (these things still remain quite un-done, mind you). The weather has taken a SERIOUS turn for the worst (holy freezing and off and on rain!) which prompted me to spend the majority of my time indoors – more often than not, wrapped in blankets, tea in hand. I managed to sneak out on Saturday to treat myself to a mini shopping spree (my summer wardrobe was in dire need of a facelift). And as I write this, I’ve dragged my duvet to the couch and Teletoon retro is on TV (inspector gadget is not quite as exciting as when I was 8, but it’s bringing back some serious memories). It was unquestionably one of those weekends, and I am not complaining one bit. How was yours? I’d love to know!

    I love when it is hot and sunny, but I also enjoy when it’s freezing outside and when the rain is pouring. It is the occasion to rest with a warm wool blanket, in front in a good movie, with a nice cup of tea ;-)

    I am with Nishakya – I so look forward to your weekend posts! Me and Inspector Gadget had a close relationship when I was younger, so I know what you mean! I bought a few things over the weekend to liven up my closet, too. I feel much better now… :)

      I remember Inspector Gadget being fabulous! I couldn’t get over how silly and oblivious he was when I was watching it the other day though. And he never gave Penny or Brain ANY credit… it was very irritating haha

      I recently did a SERIOUS purge (bags and bags of stuff) and needed just a few pieces to pull others together. I think I’m summer ready now!

    That sounds like bliss! I worked late Friday, had back-to-back wedding showers Saturday and spent Sunday catching up on errands, but this weekend I plan on relaxing!!

      Hey Heather! They were actually a gift from my aunt. She bought them for me at a Native American craft show in Thunder Bay. I’m sorry – I know that isn’t much help!

    I was working, but L&L on a Monday morning always inspires smiles everywhere :)

    Mid-rise red cropped skinnies? Though by your photo, I might call that colour “scarlet blush”.
