After a big day and night yesterday I was ready for a slow day.
Allan left at the crack of dawn for a fishing trip and I blessedly went back to sleep until the church alarm. I woke the kids, got the dog up and fed, made myself a tea and had some granola and yogurt after realising I hadn't really eaten since breakfast the day before.....and it slowly dawned on me the children were not stirring upstairs.
I repeated my waking efforts to no avail and realised if I actually got them up I would be dragging grumpy teenagers to church so I abandoned my mission and crept back under the covers myself and listened to the radio for a bit....in defense of the sleepy teens Lindsay worked so hard with me all day yesterday and David had a robotics competition (in which he did really well) and then helped out at the auction...... I think a slow day was in order for them too.
My friend Emily and I had planned to go to a sale of equipment and props that a theater company was having so as I was heading out two sleepy teenagers had just emerged. The sale was interesting and we both got a few things ....mostly for work. We then headed to a Farmers Market in Southlands in
Vancouver.... and what a lovely little find it was....small and whimsical and soulful.....we both fell in love with the place. We did a little veggie shopping and then had a delicious heirloom tuscan tomato soup and slice of bread from Urban Digs ( I also got some of their preserves and Beer Mustard!!) and watched folks go by for a bit.
We wandered through the farm, watched the horses and I think we both felt a little restored from the busyness and business of our lives......or maybe it was the Magic Path? :)
I came home and had a very rare nap.....which truly wrecked me though it was quite delicious to crawl into bed and close my eyes for a bit. Lindsay and I had our flu shots yesterday morning and I think we are both feeling a little "draggy" today......or maybe just tired.
A delightful way to cap a busy weekend.
