This is one of my favorite morning rituals – sitting outside in our small orchard and drinking a cup of tea.  Even though the dogs didn’t make in into any of today’s photos, they are always around 🙂  I think I set up a scavenger hunt for them before taking these photos (I hide treats all over they yard – they have to sniff them out – it’s keeps them quite occupied!).

For those in Canada – I hope you had a great Victoria Day long weekend 🙂  I spent most of the weekend either getting the garden ready, or prepping the basement walls for painting.  The latter was especially time-consuming because the previous home owners who did an absolutely TERRIBLE job when painting the basement (I’m talking about dried paint drips on the walls, awful crack-filling that has left us with bumpy walls (wtf?), getting paint on the baseboards, handrails, doors, ceiling, etc…).  I am trying my best to repair their mistakes, which is why the prepping stage has taken so long.
This will be the new paint color (when I finally get around to painting…) – I am hoping it will be an upgrade form the current mustard yellow walls (I normally like mustard yellow, but it’s just not working in our basement…).

I have been gravitating to more casual looks recently.  I expect, in part, this is to the feeling of being unconstrained by the spring weather.  For me, winter evoked images of uninspiring dark clothing, and tightly bundled up layers, while spring has been the opposite – airy, relaxed looks, with considerably more color.
