A strange golden orb....

appeared in the sky this morning! What is it? Oh, right - the sun! Yes, the sun is shining at last over BC, after a week or so of rain (with a brief break on Saturday). Even I, who generally love rainy days, was getting a tad tired of wind and rain. We're still working on getting everything in place and arranging for water testing and probably a filtration system (life in the country, doncha know).

We spent yesterday in Vancouver. Sean had an appointment there, so we took the early ferry in (6:20 am), hit Home Depot before the appointment then Ikea and Fitness Depot afterwards, followed by H&M at the Coquitlam Centre. Finally, we headed back to West Van, had dinner at the Cactus Club Cafe before going out to Horseshoe Bay in time for the 9:15 ferry home. The cats were thrilled to see us - it's the longest we've left them alone since moving in here - all told, about 17 hours.

While at Ikea, we picked up two more bookcases for me *g*, so hopefully I should have all my books shelved once Sean has had a chance to put them together. And my writing nook should have wall shelves soon too, which will be nice. Though I may still have to get rid of some of the less necessary stuff I've accumulated over the years. Meanwhile, the cats continue to enjoy the many empty boxes that appear in different rooms around the house - LOL!

That's about it, again. I'm trying to get motivated to write, but there are so many distractions. At some point, I'll just have to set aside even one hour and just DO IT!

See you all anon!


Currently Reading: The Scarlet Lion by Elizabeth Chadwick

We need more bookshelves, too. I've still got big boxes of books packed away in the storage room. What's the point of having books if you can't look at them on the shelves, right? ;-)

How is the Scarlet Lion? I bought it the other week and can't wait to read it.
