Ha ha, I found a great reason to wear my red suede shorts I thought were destined never to make it out of the closet - Canada Day! My friend Anna and I went to the Salmon Festival in Steveston and I decided for once in my life I'd dress festively! So I did the whole red and white thing, even though red's not my colour. And yes, I am wearing white tights, though my skin's almost that pale.
The Canada Day celebrations were ugh, typical: wait in line for bank machine, wait in line for bathroom, wait in line for food, wait to sit and eat, wait in car to get out of parking. I have to try not to be irritated and cynical: it was a beautiful day and it was heartwarming to see such a diverse community out having fun together and really enjoying Canada Day. I think as I get older I have less tolerance for crowds.
Current favorite nail polish colour: For Audrey, by China Glaze. It's the perfect robin's egg blue. Gotta clean up my feet and paint my toenails tonight!
Did anyone do anything patriotic for Canada Day?
