I’ve had the most glorious 5 day long weekend – why can’t every weekend be 5 days long? I’d be cool with a 2 day work week.
Not only have I had a lot of time off but it’s been absolutely gorgeous in Vancouver. Usually Mother Nature hates us with a passion and curses us with endless rain on long weekends. Instead, it feels like summer in the city – the temperature has been around 16 degrees C in the daytime and it’s been continuous sunshine since I got back from Ottawa on Wednesday night. The birds are chirping, the cherry blossom trees have exploded in luscious pinks and laughing, screaming children have descended on the park across the street. I’ve been able to take my little Abby on walks every day. Here’s a photo of her eating a dandelion today:
Keeping with this light, vibrant, summery feeling, I made lemon angel food trifles for my friend, Tara, over at Noshing with the Nolands.
Tara’s a fellow Canuck and a fabulous lady. She features the most delicious recipes on her blog so I wanted to make sure I made something worthy of her. Go and check out these trifles here.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!
