Twelve photos on the twelfth day of the month following Ella's Take 12 photo challenge. This month's prompt was to focus signs of the weekend and how it stands apart from the typical Monday-Friday week.
A May weekend can often be almost-summerlike here and that is what we were blessed with today. The sky was a brilliant, cloudless blue and the still snow-capped mountains framed my view as I drove about doing errands today. Three of us start a little more slowly on Saturday mornings as there are no soccer or hockey games or practices to rush off to. Scones are often part of our weekends breakfasts - today I made chocolate chip scones. Colin spent part of the day reading the second novel in a series he is enjoying. Adam went to see The Avengers with his friends. Neil had some dental work done while I drove into Ladner to visit West Coast Seeds to pick up some tomato seedlings and then on to London Farm to pick up some more plants and enjoy the views along the Fraser River. I planted a few more seeds and got the seedlings in our vegetable garden. Our rhododendrons are bursting into bloom at the front of the house which is a sure sign that Mothers' Day is just around the corner. Colin's hair got even shorter and we enjoyed some dinner off the bbq before settling into a quiet evening of home with a mixture of work, relaxation, practicing guitar and doing homework.
