Well, there’s another weekend come and gone!! Somehow, Saturday and Sunday are by far the “shortest” days of every week…aren’t they, dear readers?!
Besides catching up on some sleep (a weekend non-negotiable, in my opinion!) Robin and I managed to squeeze in a ferret playdate with friends-slash-fellow-pet-parents, a movie date (we saw “The Girl on the Train”) and some extra FaceTime with my parents in Toronto…since my sister was visiting them from New Brunswick, it was like a two-for-one!!
We even managed to get out and enjoy a little bit of unexpected sunshine!! Aside from the “storm-that-really-wasn’t” that had been in the forecast for Vancouver last weekend, I have to say our transition into autumn has been rather pleasant so far; fingers crossed that the Farmer’s Almanac got it right and we really do end up being Canada’s hotspot this winter!!
As for the movie?? I don’t know how the screenplay compares to the actual book – since I haven’t read it! – but I’m giving the cinematic version two thumbs up!! And I know Robin does, too; he made it through the late show without falling asleep…which is his highest compliment!! 😉
