I love Bliss in the Cadboro Bay Village.
"The Skies the Limit"
is the newest shade of polish that I opted for when I had my pedicure.
It is a lovely shade of turquoise blue as I have been in a blue mood.
Not blue as in sad blue but blissed out on blue...
I'm over the moon about blues, which is refreshing and new.
I was crazy for orange awhile back but blue is the new kid on the block!
The Climbing Royal Sunset is in it's second flush of flowering.
Such a stalwart and hardy rose it's like the "energizer bunny" of roses!
But I digress...
I was meant to be focusing on blues...
The Rosie Project is my favourite book so far this summer.
It is a light read and totally entertaining...
run out and get your hands on a copy and let me know if you agree that it is a winner.
Darling daughter and I had lunch at a local French bakery...
they sell the most wonderful baguettes in town and serve up tasty sandwiches and pizza.
In case you were wondering Fol Epi translates as "wild wheat stalk."
I opted for the coffee tonic as it was a very hot day and darling daughter had the caffe shakerato.
The atmosphere at Fol Epi is casual, the food delicious, and the views over the harbour are quite lovely.
It's a super popular spot for a quick bite.
The outdoor seating was full...
so we sat inside which was a good idea because we needed shelter from the scorching sun.
Sated and rested we then toddled off to the thrift shops...
I picked up this pretty paperweight in the Sally Ann for a toonie.
I pulled out this Hermes scarf to wear with my Gap denim jacket as the weather was cloudy.
I love the pop of red.
How wonderful this kite looks flying against the blue sky.
On a sad note these beautiful hydrangeas are almost done...
Do you remember the Blue Man ?
It was a collaboration with a student from school.
Play doh was a wonderful learning tool that I used with an autistic student.
We talked about the science of the human body while the rest of the class were studying at a much higher level.
Adapted programs are key to our special needs children in the school system.
In our province the teachers are negotiating a new contract with the province who are under funding our educational system. Teachers are on the front line and they justifiably want to have more control over class size and composition...education is very near and dear to my heart.
I hope that the mediator rules in favour of the teachers.
