Counting Down!

Yeah yeah, Spring day. I dunno, I've never been much of a "This day" or "That day" person. In my family we don't really do anything more than acknowledge Mother's day or Father's day (that is, if we remember they're happening even!). I think Valentine's day is the only "Hallmark holiday" I remain aware of. But again, it's just an excuse for a nice dinner out, it's not an excessive gift-giving day for me.

I guess it is nice to have stuff to celebrate. But then again I believe all of this stuff (moms, dads and loved ones) can be celebrated any day. Most importantly, for me, when they're around. What use is Father's or Mother's day when you live a province away. Not a single bit. But those few days a year you do get to spend with them, those are the important ones :)

Anyhoo, I didn't really have much to say today. But I did just look at my Calendar and realise *there are only 2 Saturdays left* until we'll be off to Zanzibar. Suddenly it's getting really close. And there is still loads to do. Buy a new bikini, buy our Dollars, do our dive-refresher (at least t hat is booked!), buy Malaria medication ... that's all I can think of for now. Me thinks it'll be quite the admn-filled weekend preparing. At least it's all for a *very* good cause. I can't wait to be sunning myself on white sands and swimming in a turquoise (warm!) sea :)

Yawn, there were other things I wanted to write about ... but I forget. Varen did make us a delish dinner of Chicken & Broccoli pancakes last night. And what's the best part about pancakes for dinner? The dessert ones after! We tried banana & condensed milk which was quite yummy, but I think I prefer a thinner pancake with nutella or cinnamon sugar and lemon juice. Yummm!

I dream of Zanzibar every day.

So exciting!

Craving pancakes now. Thin ones with Nutella. Like they sell along the Seine in Paris.

*wanders off on a new daydream that involves France and chocolate crepes*
