Weekend Update

We stayed in town this weekend and managed to fill it with 48 hours of fun and a bit of crazy.

On Friday night, we caught David Sedaris on his current tour. He told a selection of stories that were both hilarious and thoughtful. And really, there's no better way to end a long work week and start the weekend than in an auditorium of family and strangers all laughing together.

I picked up the Rhuby concoction from Art in the Age and the ginger shrub from Taits farm. Before the show, I mixed up some lemon, ginger, Rhuby drinks for us. The Rhuby bottle might look familiar, because I bought their Root spirit before, and now am so excited to try Snap, which is made with ginger, molasses, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg!

The Vespa was having mechanical difficulties. So we put it in the van {yes, the van!} and then paused to get photographic evidence. I have to admit that C had complete confidence in the wacky van idea, while I naysayed it up and down, but it worked! And now we've decided that we can take it anywhere. When the scooter was in the back, Ca$h was in the passenger seat, so we looked like quite a crew when we all hopped out of the van at the mechanic's shop.

We hit up one night of the Banff Film Festival World Tour. It was a great way to spend the evening and get inspired to go outside for an adventure.... or stay inside after you watch the film COLD, preview below::

In crafty news, I finished the art for the bedroom and the sweater is blocked, so I have a few fun posts coming up this week.

And in the garden, our tulips are still blooming, and the lilacs and tree peonies aren't far behind. This morning, the pets joined us for coffee on the deck before work. Good times.
