Weekend Post Mortem

It felt like one of those weekends where you're hanging onto summer by a tenuous link, and it's slipping through your fingers and there's nothing you can do but eat outside even when it's not that nice, and drink lots of cold beer and icy white wine. While wearing jeans and a cardigan.

Friday night we went to our friends Jen and Shaun's for a BBQ on their incredibly giant urban terrace. They have the loveliest space, right in the heart of the city. The food and company was great, but home to bed early in order to get up early for the yard sale!

We had early birds at 7am, and they cleaned us out. We made a few hundred dollars, got rid of some stuff we didn't need, and had fun. The weather cooperated, and then we took the unsold {or unsellable in some cases} items to the appropriate donation and disposal locations. Then we got ready and met Laurin, Casey and Julie and all went to Andrew's surprise going away party. It was a lovely evening, filled with old friends and lots of laughs. From there we met up with Daphna and Adam and friends and watched some Ultimate Fighting. I'm not going to lie, I had fun.

Sunday morning was spent puttering around the house, doing things that have been left unattended for too long. Then I hit the market, bought a bunch of lovely fruit and veg, made a strawberry and peach trifle, and we went to mom and dad's for dinner. My cousin Tanya is in town, and she brought all 700 of her pictures from her recent trip to Africa. Needless to say, we're not done looking at them yet...
