Just when you think you have one of your clutter problems under control...
My husband built a whole bookshelf dedicated to movies and vinyl records. He painstakingly alphabetized the movies and then the records. Everything fit, with just enough wiggle room to get your fingers in between the albums. Life was good.
And then we visited my parents again and this happened...

This week's look at the weekend is a little bit different. With the Victoria Day holiday Monday tomorrow, more of the weekend is still to come. It's amazing how one extra day makes the weekend feel so much fuller and more satisfying, isn't it?
It feels like we have done so much already. We started off Saturday morning with a visit to a farmer's market, where we picked out a pot of organic basil.

It's Friday once again. If you're Canadian like me, it's time for a good, celebratory long weekend. It's "May two-four" people!
Some info for those of you not in Canada - "Victoria Day" is a public holiday observed on the Monday before May 25th. It celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday (May 24th), but who really cares? It's a day off of work for most people. I believe we call it May "two-four" because many 24-packs of beer are consumed on this spring long weekend.
Whether you are opening up your cottage, starting your gardening for the year or just hanging out with friends enjoying the fireworks, I wish you a happy, safe long weekend.

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! I hope you have been enjoying delicious, healthy food this week. Although the weather has been highly inconsistent, with everything from sunshine (very little) to rain to wind to snow, we have been acting like it's warm when it comes to meals. Quick and simple is the goal.
We continue to love sandwiches made of chickpea tomato salad on warmed naan bread, above. So yummy. I satisfied my pesky sweet tooth with a delicious cherry vanilla creme natural soda from Blue Sky.
