i’ll just shut my eyes til we get back home

I managed to inadvertently stumble across the sound and light show on parliament hill tonight - out for a walk and a long phone call with a friend, it was surprising to come across a TON of people standing on the hill. While I think the show is generally the pits, the light show makes for some interesting photos. How often do people use your most significant landmark as a projection screen?

Today was gorgeous. Had coffee with a friend late in the morning, and then packed myself a picnic lunch and took off on my bike for the arboretum, where I spent the afternoon lounging, reading a bill bryson book, getting licked by other people's puppies (who are apparently friendly with strangers....moreso than their owners would like). Throw in a bike home, a nap, and another walk, and you've got a full yet remarkably relaxing, empty day. I loved every minute of it.
