I haven’t felt much like posting lately. I don’t exactly know why, but I’ve been wandering through my life lately without the urge to record any of it for posterity. I’ve been doing things, sure, but nothing has really seemed blogworthy. I feel like I have to apologize to you for my boring life!

I did have a downtown spa date with BFJ this past weekend. We had a lovely hotel room, a lovely pre-dinner bottle of bubbly, a lovely dinner with more lovely drinks, a lovely shopping experience, a lovely sleep, a lovely (and expensive! Wow! Do fancy hotels ever gouge you for the privilege of eating breakfast in their dining rooms!) breakfast the next morning, then a lovely massage and facial (me) and a lovely massage and pedicure (her). We mostly had a lovely visit with the usual amounts of riotous laughter – most rejuvenating!

And we had an unexpected visitor to our 11th floor room:IMG_0430

This guy scared the shit out of us when he swooped in and landed on the windowsill, and then he just sat there for something like fifteen minutes. He cocked his little head from one side to the other, probably trying to see what we were doing in there and wondering when we were going to open the stupid window and feed him. (We didn’t.) Both BJF and I took loads of photos and texted them to everyone we thought might appreciate a photo of a persistent and photogenic seagull on a hotel window ledge.

And that ridiculous seagull made me feel like writing a blog post again.

  1. We don’t have that problem here with seagulls but with pigeons. Would you like one of them instead? We have plenty.

  2. I thought for a minute you had Spiderman swoop down and catch you in your all-togethers. But I am happy it all was ‘lovely’ as you say. Actually sounds like a lot of fun. When we are flying off somewhere we always stay at the Fairmont at YVR. It’s heavenly and indeed lovely and they too charge an arm and a leg for brekkie.

  3. I need a ridiculous seagull. Please find ma a ridiculous seagull!!!
