off on a little vacation

My self imposed art retreat is over. Now we're off on a mini vacation. No dog for 3 days. WooHoo! Don't we look like pale, sun starved Canadians in need of a break?I've shopped at Target for Liberty stuff (nice!), and managed to find a kind of dressy spring coat with a hood. We've been shopped at Trader Joes. And we took this self portrait outside in the beautiful Spring-like weather. Spring starts tomorrow. Of course, it's supposed to snow here (well, I am in a secret US location-- of course it won't be snowing in Toronto)
Tomorrow I'm off to JoAnn fabric (I can't find a quilting fabric store, so JoAnns will have to do. We'll hit the knitting stores to, for Ray (Can I just call him Mr. B? That's what all of the cool bloggers do. And Ray has grudgingly agreed..... ) So, anyway, Mr B hasn't purchased anything yet. Well, the flowery liberty boxers and tie that I bought for him don't really count.

It's supposed to snow here this week-end, after a few absolutely beautiful and warm 9mid and high 60s) days. Have fun shopping!

Sound like a wonderful break.
We are heading to Buffalo to check out Target, bookstores etc so I hope there is some goodies there too!

Hope you're having a wonderful break! It's overcast here today, hopefully you can bring back the sun with you. BTW. Love your books posted on your blog.

A mini-getaway sounds great. I hope you had a wonderful time. We leave for Florida this week. I'm not complaining, but going to DisneyWorld with 3 kids, hubby and 80 million other families with kids will not be a getaway it's madness! :)

Hope you had a lovely holiday. I can relate to your weather issues being a Torontonian myself. Also wanted to say I loved your little packages in Sew Somerset. I have a "thing" with brown paper also and love to use it to wrap stuff.
