where did the weekend go?

feels like the days have been full and yet i wouldn't mind a bit of relax time too. a few snippets (although i think the better moments did not get captured):


• wading, for just a moment, in the cold river under a grey sky
• exploring the quiet forest, quite gloomy despite the july 1 date
• looking for huckleberries and finding only one
• making up for it by picking 18lbs of strawberries at the local organic farm
• suddenly realizing that's A LOT of ripe berries, and struggling to get them cleaned and (mostly) in the freezer before they turn

just one

• visiting friends' riverside home for an evening fire
• brunch out with a good friend i haven't seen in ages
• then following that up by having her and her husband over for dinner
• and then visiting yet another group of friends for another dinner at their place
• taking a short, late afternoon paddle on a windswept (but gradually calming) lake

sunday breakfast

• working on a custom order with a tight deadline (and in my stupidity, forgetting i needed some supplies on canada day, when everything was closed
• so instead, making a new whale for the shop
• sorting through photos for a couple other possible orders
• trying to escape to the beach this afternoon, however briefly

candy stripes for canada day

hope you have all had a great weekend, whether it was just a regular weekend, or a long weekend (canada and the us).

The hike from Elk Falls to Canyon View yielded two boys with a few sweaty handfulls of huckleberries today, although I'm not so sure they were picky on the ripeness level....

Sounds like a lovely week-end.

I was going to say the same thing as Margie. It was a busy weekend here too but the boys and I have settled nicely into the lazy days of summer.
