It is amazing how when the sun comes out, everything in the world seems better.
The sun came out for Valentines Day after days and weeks of rain. It was welcomed and we took advantage of it.
As luck would have it, the library book sale was on and we went. For $25. you get a big bag of books. We brought our own bag. It was pretty full when we went to check out. The lady said you had to use the free library bag to get the deal, and made us transferred the books from one bag to the other. She then sent us back into the sale. â€œYou can fit a few more books in there.â€ It was not so much a suggestion as an order. We did as we were told and grabbed a couple of books on gardening. With the bag filled to the brim, she let us pay for our goodies and off we went.
The sun was beaming in the front windows, to the point we may need to draw the blinds someday for the heat and glare, but not today. Today we soaked up the rays; even Peet slept in the path of the warm rays.
We also took a nice walk on the beach near town.
Like I said, the weather has been typically rainy since we moved here, so we havenâ€™t really been able toÂ get a good look at the beauty that surrounds us. Today took care of that. It is gorgeous here. We both had cameras and we clicked away at some interesting sights that included Totem poles, herons, eagles, blue sky and rocky beaches.
Now, there is a roast in the oven, I’ll add some green beans and weâ€™ll have a nice meal and watch the sunset. And then, because it’s Valentine’s Day, we have hockey pucks* in the freezer for later!
A good day was had.
*Hockey Pucks – are a Canadian version of ice cream sandwiches.
