Simple Pleasures

I had a great weekend. Finally startng to feel better from my cold, and Daryl and I managed, SOME how, to book Saturday off together to recoup. We slept in - apparently now "sleeping in" is until 9am. We can't seem to sleep later than that. It was wonderful to laze around though, not have to rush out of bed to anything! Later on we went for brunch at the Shine cafe, and then wandered around downtown window-shopping until it was time to hop on the bus and head out to Church.

Can I just say that breadfast at the Shine is the best ever in the history of the universe!?! We had what we always have, the "Canadian" eggs benedict - which involves brie, bacon and many other wonderful things :-). It's one of the few breakfast places with decent coffee, and the atmosphere is bright and friendly; tiny but packed almost exclusively with "regulars." It's one of those places. The decorating is perfect - which goes without saying since much of the interior is, I think Ikea ;-) So, breakfast was good.

Daryl took me to see his office downtown too - it's awsume!! Right downtown, near all the neat little shops mentioned in my last post. It has so many windows and light, and is trendy and open inside. Very nice - I can see why he loves it so much!

Ooh, and when we got to our stop for Church, we were really early, so went to the nursery accross the highway from it. I purchased the beginnings of my patio herb garden!! It's not quite time for my favorite (basil) yet, but I picked up oregano, spearmint, peppermint (REAL peppermint which I couldn't find last year), dill, parsley and thyme. I love having fresh herbs to cook with!

SO, we had a great day off together. I'm glad - this will be a VERY crazy busy month, and I don't think we'll get any chance to have a day like that for a while, so I'm so thankful we had Saturday. I love my husband :-) We have so much fun together.

:) I love your husband too. I miss you guys so much.
Hm, brie is Canadian? I rather thought it was french. Have I been to the Shine? Now I feel like I missed out when I lived there.
miss you!
