Sorry guys, I’m feeling really unmotivated today *I couldn’t even put on make-up and I spent half the day in pajamas*. Maybe it’s the weather…it has been cold and rainy here for quite a while and everyone is wondering where Spring has got herself to. So I don’t have much to say, except that wherever you are I hope you’re well!
True Story: Baby had such a massive dump she woke herself up with it. And it leaked through all her clothes, into her blanket and her sheets! I know that’s gross, but all the Mama’s out there are nodding, “Yup, been there done that.” I know. I can see you.

Seriously! What is up with the weather here??? Spring was well on it’s way with sunshine and warm breezes and all of a sudden we have flurries and weather in the negative degrees celsius. I am not a happy camper.
I’m also very tired today, so pardon the raving lunacy.
That’s it. I’m done for today. Better stop writing before I say something stark raving mad.
See y’all tomorrow!

Summer is just around the corner. And I can’t wait until it arrives! I look forward to landscaping and garening, and generally making the outside of our house as beautiful as the inside. But I also can’t wait to see Baby running around a sprinkler or in and out of her wading pool smiling her toothy grin the whole time. I purchased this hat with summer in mind *the wide brim to keep the sun off my face* and now everytime I look at it I think, “Come on already Summer!”

|An alleyway in Venice.|
|I love the colors and the crooked tower.|

Since today it’s been sunny and then snowy my mind has been wandering to more beautiful sights then the bi-polar weather here in Toronto. I find myself thinking about Venice. And I found my favorite shots of Venice to be things like alleyways and a buliding rather than the traditional canal with gondola because everyone has those shots and everyone has seen those shots. I appreciated Venice, and I loved the windy streets from a military aspect (because well, I am a martial artist), but I didn’t fall in love with Venice as others have. Don’t get me wrong, if someone offered me a trip there I wouldn’t refuse! It just wouldn’t be my first choice of anywhere in the world.
It does bring a smile to my face though.
You know what else brings a smile to my face? This little ray of sunshine riiiight here.
It’s raining today. It’s not fun. In the night the wind howled and shook everything so much that we checked online in the middle of the night to see whether there was a tornado warning. Husband got scared awake a few times in the night, we both did. So this miserable weather got me thinking of when we were in Scotland. It rained the enitre time. Yes, I know that’s the climate, but I thought we’d get at least one day of good weather.
|Edinburgh castle is just amazing!|

|Gothinc Cathedral in Glasgow. Cathedral design and architecture is stunning!|
|Inside the cathedral.|
|Stained glass windows. If I were designing a house I think I’d have one gorgeous stained glass window somewhere.|
We both loved Scotland despite the weather, but Husband was decidedly not happy about how much I enjoyed the wonderful red-haired men with fabulous scottish accents!

I had a lovely morning to myself of editing photos, catching up on Criminal Minds and just plain old bumming around the house. In the afternoon we went to Le Scandinave Spa. It’s beautiful and relaxing place where you can enjoy a sauna, a steam room, outdoor heated pools and cool pools. You basically sit around for hours in one place or another.
Now, it’s lovely. And Emily finds it very relaxing. But I’m a very active individual. I can’t sit still in one place for too long. I get bored, antsy, fidgety, and then down-right annoying when I have nothing to do. Needless to say, I kind of annoyed Emily. Especially when she made me sit in the silent sauna and I got so fidgety that I unconciously started drumming on the boards with my fingers and she had to stop me.
So, though I enjoyed the experience as I’d never done anything like that before, I wouldn’t go back. To me relaxing is a 10 mile hike, an hour massage, and a good meal. Or a 10 mile run, followed by the other two.
It was time to head home. I’ve enjoyed my time away, but I was just as happy to come home, and look at my little girl sleeping sweetly with her cute bum in the air. I missed her. I missed them all.

I’m sitting here finishing my coffee as the sun streams in through the windows. Don’t let that fool you, it’s cold.
Today, I’ve had a chance to edit photos and finish an episode of Criminal Minds. So yeah, I’m having a nice morning.
I thought I’d post these outfit shots that I promised you yesterday.
More road trip posts to come!
