Lazy Sunday

The whole weekend has been super nice, so far. For a change. Sunny, first of all, with temperature quite mild, or what spring should feel like, really.

I enjoy weekends like this when we had no real plans but just relax. I used to not like it when I was younger. I always felt like weekends should be packed with all kinds of fun stuff, otherwise it felt like it was wasted. Then Monday comes and I'd be exhausted. Not anymore. Now I savor quiet weekends like this. Mind you, I still feel exhausted come Monday, so that part hasn't changed. hehe

Noticed these tulips as I was out and about earlier. Seeing it just made my insides smile.How can it not?

And I love the purple and yellow colors of the flowers. I'm no green thumb so I can't even tell you what kind of flowers are those. Azaleas? All I know is I love the deepness of the colors. 

Walking around with the sun warming my face made me think of summer. Which got me thinking barbeques and grilling. Which got me thinking hotdogs. HAH!

I may be oversimplifying things, but I'd say it won't be a bad description if I say this is Vancouver on a bun. A Japanese chef decided to put an Asian twist on a much-loved North American fare. With a big Asian population this side of the coast, it can't get any more Vancouver than this. 

As much as this is not the healthiest of fare, once in a while, only this will do. No?

The fries came in a small brown bag, which is how they season their fries. Kinda' like shake-and-bake for the fries, only they do it after it's cooked. If I'm not mistaken, this is not atypical way of serving fries in Japan. And see, no need to cross the ocean!

Sun, flowers, leisure walk, hotdog, fries... gotta love spring!
