I'm smiling as it is such a gift after a dull week of weather.
The Spring flowers are blooming
the plum and cherry trees along the boulevards are budding forth in various shades of pink
the petals are fluttering down like pink snow.
A fog bank hugs the Washington shoreline on Juan de Fuca Strait.
Walking the 5K route I weave through the picturesque Gonzales area of town.
it's a scenic spot to perambulate.
My walking gear is pretty standard, keeping warm is very important.
I wear a warm scarf to chase the chill and keep cozy.
Chillax coat which is waterproof, lined in fleece and is not too heavy.
I carry my keys, some money and my IPhone in this small cross body bag by Roots...
it's a hands free option which allows me the freedom to swing my arms.
Lands' End trail shoes...
I love the word perambulate...
"walk or travel through or around a place or area, especially for pleasure and in a leisurely way."
I also love an English pram...
Mr. HB and I are over the moon that our son and his wife are expecting their 3rd baby!
I'll be getting my knitting needles out soon.
I knit blankets for Isla and Henry and so I will continue the tradition with the new one.
When I had my Grammy Day this week Isla was so excited about the new baby...
she wants a sister...
Sunny clumps of yellow daffodils.
Earlier in the week the weather was rather bleak
and I had to force myself to go out.
The weather was dreary...positively beastly.
(not as cold or snowy as those in the east are enduring)
Mission style arts and crafts house on Hollywood Crescent.
Bald Eagle looking out to the sea...
Carrot Ginger Soup
Gordon Ramsay's recipe for lamb breast was very tasty.
I'd never cooked a breast of lamb before and it is a very inexpensive cut so it's a budget friendly way of enjoying our fresh local lamb.
A couple of light reads from the library.
Toss the Gloss had some great tips.
I specifically liked that she mentioned various brands of inexpensive products that deliver as well as the higher priced lines.
Oak Bay Street art...near the library.
The weather forecast is favourable for a Happy Valentine's Weekend.
