Since both of us work full time Monday to Friday, the weekends are looked forward to, usually starting on Monday morning..We both count down the days until those two glorious days off have arrived…
Sure we live and work for the weekends, especially those weekends when we are off to our ‘happy place’..
Yes, we just made a ‘super long weekend’ a few weeks back but it seems that when we have more time, there is always more stuff to get done..and before we know it the ‘super long weekend’ is done and we can’t believe how fast the time has gone..
So this weekend, may have a been a ‘super short one’ but we made the most of the time we had..
Sure the time went quickly but we still had some time to just ‘relax’..
The quails were plentiful..
The horses were busy ‘trimming the willow tree’..
The bees were busy too..
..and his frisbee..
from Frankie the cat..who seemed to think we were his ‘new family?’..
he even decided he would try out Tucker’s bed in the back of the truck..brave kitty?
the cherry trees are blooming..
and so were the pear trees..
..We even took the time to go for short walk through the orchard..every season is different..
and the lilacs were blooming too..
so, of course I snipped a few blooms and found a ‘plastic coffee container’ that I used as a vase..fragrant lilac blooms on the table in the trailer…so pretty!
Late Saturday afternoon, we sat in the sunshine and before long we were back inside the trailer..a nice quiet day….
Saturday was also Doug’s birthday..and we had a dinner date in the town of Osoyoos. We went to a small restaurant called the Wildfire Grill…the food was delicious and reasonably priced..
A perfect end to a nice day!and then of course there was birthday cake when we returned from dinner..
..so as our ‘bloomin’ great weekend draws to a close, we are counting down the days until our next trip..only 11 more days!
Something to look forward to, the ‘white box’ will be escaping the confines of Riverside ‘prison’ and we will be spending the May long weekend ‘camping’ along the shores of a lake!
Stay tuned for the next adventure!
