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 ;-)

  4. 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!

  10. Kirby says:

    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!!

  11. Heather says:

    Can you tell me where you got your slippers? I have been looking for some exactly like those!

    • Jacquelyn says:

      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!

    The weather was so cold on Friday night but luckily it improved Saturday. You found so many pretty clothes.

  13. The rain on the window looks awesome! What a great picture Jacquelyn!!

    And a Shopping Spree is always a sign of a great weekend! :)

    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”.
