After a pretty icky spring the weather this weekend has been absolutely beautiful. 20+ weather (that's in Celcius) had the mister and I outside for most of the weekend in sandals. Our garden's cleaned up, the bikes are ready to go (now blogging then sewing outside). Now we just have to do some landscaping and I can begin gardening in earnest.

We've been in our house for a little less than a year now, so I've hit the point where I can stop dreaming and planning and start doing. This year, is the backyard. We're going to build a vegetable garden (small), add a few more beds for gardens and do some levelling of our yard. All we need now is a few more free weekends.

I'm back!

Hi there, remember me?. It's been ages since I've posted but I have a good excuse. The mister and I just got back from a 3 week vacation to Japan. In my head this was our second anniversary present. We've been following the traditional wedding presents (I know it's only been two years) and year 2 is (be still my beating heart) cotton.

And so we (OK, I) went to Japan to buy fabric... and see family, and do touristy things. Needless to say, the trip was awesome. It was cherry blossom season so we saw lots of gorgeous streets as well as fantastic temples. Here are a few pictures of some of the sights.
