I had a good long weekend. It felt long and busy enough to make it feel like ages since I'd been at work but relaxing enough to feel like a break.

I slept in, which was super nice. Spent about two hours yesterday morning just hitting snooze over and over and over. It felt like the most indulgent thing.

I had an amazing brunch on Sunday and enjoyed a nice walk around downtown in the surprise sunshine, seeing all the visitors who were here for the parade or on a cruise ship or for the boat show or just because.

I went for a good long walk on Saturday, did about 7k of the 10k course. Listened to a Vinyl Cafe podcast while I walked, and why have I never thought of doing that before? (It was funny, walking along and laughing out loud to stories only I could hear.)

On Monday, (wait, was that yesterday?), I had a couple of things I wanted to buy downtown, so I got up (after the endless snooze hitting) and headed downtown. I figured I'd missed the parade, but I was happily proved wrong and got to see the last forty-five minutes worth or so.

(My favourite float was the Highlanders - our local, hunky, fit, cute soccer team. My favourite high school band was harder to call, I liked the ones that looked like they were all really having fun and the ones that played modern, fun music. Hmmm, there seems to be a "fun" theme going on with my band choices eh?)

One evening, maybe it was Friday, (as I said, the weekend felt long so the days are all kind of rolling together) I walked down and picked up a pizza from the place that is my new heaven since I've been allowed back on gluten and yesterday I got my first waffle cone of the season from Sweet Memories, so I feel like I got some good eating into the weekend as well.

Plus, good reading. (Oh, and I went a little book buying crazy which is one of my indulgences and sweet sweet delights.)

And, of course, I watched some really good tv.

There was Grey's Anatomy that had me sobbing on Friday, and then Lost that had me sobbing all over again on Sunday. I'm maybe a bit closer to the sobbing threshold these days than usual, or maybe both finales were hyper emotional, I don't know. I won't talk about them here because there's nothing worse than being a few days behind people on the tv watching schedule and finding out things you didn't want to know on line by accident.

I also got to do my groceries and hang out with C-dawg and celebrate a birthday and take some good pictures.

So, as you can see, er, read, I had a really good Victoria Day long weekend.

Hope you did too.

I read the same book as you over the weekend. I loved sitting down and just going cover to cover knowing I had no other obligations and lots more time over the weekend to do things. :)

Glad you had a lovely long weekend.

Likalia, I LOVE me some Sookie stories and I hope the series just keeps going because I don't want it to ever end! :)

Charles, weekends totally rule, especially those celebrating Queens: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_Day
