The sun has finally risen !!

Happy Weekend Friends !!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far

The sun has finally decided to make an appearance

as well as bring with her a comfortable temperature

I can actually go outside without a heavy coat on

Spent the past couple of days getting a swap out

as well as in the freezing cold

and rain pulling dandelions

Two years ago the city passed a by-law

that prohibited pesticides,

so I guess the dandelions spread the word

that they were free to spread their seeds

The neighbourhood

usually full of beautiful green carpets

is covered in yellow and now white puffballs

I personally cannot stand that look

and have gotten down

and taken them out - one by one

It has taken many many days,

but I finally see the light

or should I say 'the green'

The green carpet has returned and it looks fabulous

I know it takes constant vigilance, but it is so worth it

Now to spend some time outside and try to get a bit

of color on these chicken skin legs so I can wear a skirt

What fun adventures
have you
been up to this weekend
