Saturday a world away

JB certainly made the most of her Saturday, even though it was spent binge watching. It was fun to follow her episodes as they unraveled quite a tale that passes for drama these days. Her last comment was hilarious.

Here, in Canada, Ontario that is it was quite a different sort of day.

First, it was a sunny day at 0C when I headed out to meet my SIL at the mall to get some walking and shopping done. Within two hours it was warm and soon 16C.

What usually takes half an hour to get there took over an hour as the trains weren’t running (our inner city light rail system). I didn’t know it at the time but a truck tried going head on with the train. Silly truck.

After reaching the first 5000 steps we broke for a lovely lunch. A bit more walking, and discussion of fashion we headed home. Early enough to get some great chores done. But, alas, I fell into a very deep sleep (it may have something to do with the lying down part to consider the chores)

Now, comes the confession. I wasted a good couple of hours watching animal videos on Instagram. No lie. Cannot believe it.

So not much else achieved except a grand plan to accomplish lots of wonderful things tomorrow.

From North of 43 I bid you adieu and hope you find some relaxation in this day!

      1. Oh yes, it’s springtime here in Australia. Just recently we did have some beautiful warm days. 🙂
        In the sun it felt already like summer! 🙂
        But right now, it is very cloudy and windy again! Also, there’s a bit of rain at times. Even within one day the weather can change a lot. Four seasons in one day: That is possible! 🙂
