Long Weekend Plans

May 21, 2010

It’s Friday today, hurray! Hurray!

For us Canadians, this is an extra special Friday.  It’s the Friday before the May long weekend.  In most parts of Canada, the May long weekend is unofficially considered the start of summer. It’s the first long weekend of the year where the weather is usually tolerable enough to go camping, hiking, fishing, and generally do outdoorsy stuff.  It’s also the time when people get their garden’s ready and plant all their veggies and such.

Of course, since I live in the lower mainland it’s been summer since about April, so the thrill that the may long weekend always provided when I lived up north isn’t quite the same. I’m still excited though because I have all kinds of fun plans!

* Getting together with a friend from out of town.

* planting the adorable little tomato plants I bought on a whim

* taking some film to be developed

* taking photos of the beautiful weather!

* sitting in the sun with my cat and my love, eating gelato.

Of course, my other weekend plans are slightly less fun and involve a lot of packing, boxes and generally throwing my home into a state of upheaval. We’re moving in three weeks and only have four boxes packed! Yikes! Tonight I plan to make packing a bit more fun by doing it with a glass or two of wine. 😉

What are your weekend plans? I hope they are all fun and lovely, whether or weekend is long or not!
