Today is a holiday in Canada.  In my mind, it kind of starts off the official Spring/Summer season for me and it seems to be getting here earlier and earlier each year.

This last week has been a weird one. My BF Sharon left for Scotland last Monday (May 16th) and the few days before she left were about calming her down and convincing her that she did not have to pack everything she owns for a two week trip!!!  Its been odd not having her around and I keep picking up the phone to text or call her and then remember that she is away.

On the positive side, she has emailed me regularly and mentioned that she visited a tea room AND a few bookstores.  She has taken lots of pictures and has picked me up a few Brit chick lit books - I can't wait :)

I also read my way through 2 very interesting non fiction books.  One was written by Jesse James and the other by Maureen Stanton.  Her book is incredibly interesting and focuses on an antique dealer and his expeditions through various antique shows - fun.  I will be posting reviews of both of these very shortly.

I have also been doing very well on the "taking care of me" side.  I have been taking up to 5 yoga clases a week (trying to master a few difficult moves!), ride my bike almost daily and have finally found the strength to delve back into what I need to do to sustain my recovery from my eating disorder, which I had neglected for the last few years.  I need to remember this one line that  I found somewhere about recovery "in order to recover, you need to lead the most true life possible" the lies will kill you - and believe me, after getting rid of the things and the people that were hurting me, I realized how true this mantra is :)  Of course, making new friends has also helped alot!
Now, if I could simply get off the whole "Supernatural" TV show addiction that I have picked up!  I am working my way through the entire series (and there are like 7 seasons or something yikes!!!).

Finally, I was at a second hand shop the other day and saw this -  they are salt and pepper shakers made in the shape of books - for all US booklovers!  I would have bought them, but they were hopelessly cracked and chipped - but I did take a picture.  I thought they were hilarious!

Sadly I think I have bought the S&P shakers LOL

Oh, I think I would have bought them too, chips and all!

The book about the antique dealer sounds interesting...will look forward to your review.

We recently became addicted to Supernatural too and watched the first 6 seasons (or whatever it is) in a couple of months! They just keep getting better too, although they are seriously lacking in good female characters.
