So, How was your long weekend?

On a long weekend where the biggest local story was that this town’s least-favourite field-goal kicker misplaced himself for a few days, It seems everyone out there did about the same thing as I did: nothing.

Now, some of you must have done something, right? What did you do?

As we can see from above, Judy clearly went to the British Car Meet at Van Deusen Gardens.

I spent the weekend walking small dogs, thinking unpleasant thoughts about a non-working lawn mower, catching up on sleep, making a lousy plum cobbler, and now I’m waiting for bread to bake.

So, good weekend? Bad weekend? Anything funny? How did you celebrate Victorianism?

    We went on a road trip to a cabin near 100 Mile House by driving through Whistler, Pemberton and Lillooet, except never made it to the cabin, and instead ended up in Kamloops. 100 Mile House was full of cowboys and one world’s best trials rider. Kamloops was nice. We drove about 1200 km or so this weekend and never once went through Cache Creek. There’s a lot of good stories in that 1200 km.

    Well, like you I didn’t do much, but the one new thing I did was go to the Coquitlam Farmers Market! It’s still a little early in the season, so there wasn’t much produce there, but there was a booth with some super tasty smoked salmon, a booth with pretty jewelry, and a booth selling really great tomato plants (they’re supposed to be back next week with pepper plants too, incase anyone’s interested).

    Oh, and I tried to go to Home Hardware yesterday to buy a cast iron pan (cause apparently they have some good ones there for cheap), but it was closed. And I started to learn how to use the Drupal content management system for websites, it is a little over my head. And I sat around and read a lot. And ate. That’s about it.

    OK, y’all can stop telling me about your weekends now. I feel embarrassed and lazy.

    Jenny: Since there is no Metroblogging 100 Mile House yet, you are compelled to write about this.

    Ariane: where is the Coquitlam Farmers’ Market? There’s a cozy one in Port Moody, but the selection was so-so last year, and it hasn’t started up yet this year.

    Hey Ryan, I did a half-marathon on Sunday in Halifax. Then spent the energetic part of Monday flying across the country and “back in time”. There was a three-hour layover in Calgary on the way back. The whirlwind is exhausting but very rewarding. I’m still on AST or EST right now….

    Ryan–the one on Sunday (9am-1pm) is at the Rec Center (Dogwood Pavillion) parking lot, the address is 624 Poirier Street (just south of Como Lake). Like I said, it was pretty small, but friends who shopped there a lot last year said it definately picks up later in the summer. There is supposedly also a Wednesday Coq market from 3pm-7pm, which I haven’t tried yet. But I’ve seen conflicting info of it’s location being either the Ikea parking lot, or the Evergreen Cultural Centre parking lot (1205 Pinetree Way) over by Coq Ctr Mall.

    I heard about the PM one, but I know it doesn’t start till June, I’ll probably try and check it out sometime later in the summer too. It’s nice to know the Coq one is decent though, Trout Lake market is amazing, but just a bit too far to go regularly!
