we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun

what a great weekend we had. i know, i know, the weekend was a few days ago now, but still, it was a good one. i would have posted earlier but i have been obsessed with finishing a baby quilt for marita's son avner, who was born this past weekend. as it turns out, tonight when i came home to finish the binding my machine died. after some poking and prodding it became clear that my poor little overworked machine is going to need to go see a doctor. i know i could hand bind it, but i just don't have it in me tonight, sleepy and sore i think i will put it off for another day. there is nothing worse than being really into a craft project and then having the rug pulled out from under you though, serves me right for having never taken it in for servicing in the 10 years i have had it.

wait, i was talking about the weekend, wasn't i?

there was so much sun it was easy to forget that it was february. for once the weather co-operated on a weekend that we had a rental car and so we did much frolicking, including a trip to one of our favourite places for some fish and chips on the wharf and basking in the glow of the boats. we also tackled ambleside with it's seawall, and beach, luring cohen with the pleasure of throwing rock after rock into the ocean while he howled with laughter. each day found us home at dinner, tired and rosy from the fresh air but deeply satisfied in a way that only time well spent can give. there was lasagne and homemade chocolate cheesecake and both nights cohen went to bed easy (the toddler bed seems to be hit and miss with the keeping him in it factor, but more on that another time).

silvija goes home a week this friday so it was nice to finally be able to take her out for an adventure with us without snow or rain or the freezing cold. not that i am complaining, i mean at least we don't live here. not that there would be anything wrong with that.

You have the most adorable little boy. Sounds like you had a great time this past weekend. I know you'll miss Silvia! Glad you were able to enjoy some time with her.
