Both Jennifer and I took the Friday off which allowed us to get through a host of tasks that you need to take days off for, like an appointment with your bank manager, meeting your daughter’s teacher and taking the Lad for an immunization shot. Saturday—which already seems so far away—found us getting more things done, such as exchanging the wrong size register grills for the correct ones, dumping off old paint cans and disused light bulbs plus other chore-like activities. We did celebrate the spirit of the Family Day by enjoying barbecued burgers and watching Arrival (a fantastic movie if you haven’t seen it) as part of Family Movie Night.
This morning, Jennifer and I took Lucy for a walk along the shores of Lake Ontario (where today’s photo was snapped; notice the person looking out at the water?). With the temperature hovering slightly above 10°C for the second day in a row, the ground was a bit soft and mucky but no one was complaining. I took advantage of the warmer weather to wash the car for the first time since November. Later in the afternoon, we headed back down Roncesvalles for the second time this weekend, meandering amidst the massive throng of folks who’ve been waiting for weather such as this to get outside. We stopped by a local coffee shop for some beverages and a shared sugar donut which we enjoyed outside, in the sun.
We’re still not sure what’s up for tomorrow which, quite frankly, is kind of nice. We had planned for a hike, but the trails are pretty mucky with all the melted snow. I’m sure we’ll get out one way or the other. The trick is, not to fill the day up with too much. Otherwise, you end up back at work, exhausted from your time off.
