Sunday

Weekend Moments: Taking it easy...


 Despite the fact that I'm starting a cold, I loved this weekend. 
It was relaxing and stress-free, and filled with good food & wine. 
Just the way I like it!

After a long, luxurious sleep-in, we kick-started the weekend by making delicious breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs & arugula.

And then we went for a snowshoe in the woods with a few friends.


And on Saturday afternoon we drove down to the bay and watched winter kite surfers glide across the frozen ocean. 


We have new neighbours up here in the north (this is very exciting for us). 
And on Saturday night they invited us over for a lovely neighbourhood pot-luck dinner.

There are no restaurants up here, so a well-cooked gourmet meal like this is a real treat!


 To my delight, the northern lights were out again, and gave us some truly beautiful auroras.

 The hubby and I stood outside in the cold and watched them until I couldn't feel my fingers anymore.... but it was worth it! It always is.


I hope you had a lovely weekend too.

I'm suddenly obsessed with the Northern Lights lately! You are so lucky you get to see them!!!! Down in southern NY we get a red tint to the night sky but to see the real colors moving around...it's gotta be so cool!!! =)
