...they are already in spring mode.
It's been shirtsleeve weather the past few days. I spent Wednesday pruning shrubs, cutting off all the grasses, and tidying up the beds. And just to confirm that winter was behind us...we even had our afternoon coffee break on the patio.
Yesterday was another spring-like day...a perfect day to go out on the town (a neighbouring town, that is)!
...she did wake up long enough to have lunch with mommy and Grammy at the Little Farmhouse in the City. It is located in a beautifully decorated 1927 heritage building...and features good homemade country cooking. They make their own breads and soups...
Maelyn seemed to enjoy the entire experience.
From there we strolled a few blocks...and checked out all kinds of neat little shops in the old part of Abbotsford. There was a great boutique called 'Oooh La La'...and a most wonderful quilting shop, where we found a cute little retro dress pattern for Maelyn. We peeked into a famous little cake shop called Tracycakes...now we'll know where to come one fine day when we need to stop for a yummy treat.
While Heidi had her haircut...Maelyn joined me on a quick Costco run. She didn't seem to mind how many times she got strapped in and out of her car seat...she had herself a great snooze.
Here's the funny thing...two people asked me if Maelyn was my baby. One was a very sweet old lady, whose vision may have been gone...but the other was a young employee of Costco. What was she thinking?
We had a fine time...we got all our tasks completed...and more! And how nice to be out and about on a beautiful day...and soak in the spring air together with those near and dear. Our weatherman is telling us we may need to forget about spring again for awhile...but we've had our first little peek!
The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. ~Henry Van Dyke
