I've been listening to CBC Radio 2 a lot more during the drive to and from work. I've grown tired of all the music that plays on the popular music stations, and I learned that CBC Radio 2 still plays the people that you've heard of, but they play songs that are not the singles they released for the other radio stations. CBC Radio 2 also plays a lot of Canadian bands and musicians and I am so glad that I am able to hear artists that don't typically get radio play. The song "I'm Not Your Hero" from Tegan & Sara is one that caught my attention this month. I love everything about it.
While looking at these shells I am reminded of the time that I had celebrating my birthday in Hawaii last year, and the seashells that I discovered in the beaches of the North Shore and the South Shore -- which I still must share with you.
I am really enjoying the outdoors right now: the heat, the dinners on the deck, playing at the park. I love the idea of intimate spaces to enjoy the outdoors right in your own backyard. It's quite hard to achieve this in areas that are relatively new and have a lot of growing to do, but I want to get everything done now so our yard can grow around it all. I have so many dreams for our backyard, and a patio with a pergola is one of them.
