|Warm days are lingering on the West Coast.|
It's a very sunny Monday on the west coast of British Columbia. I've spent the morning washing clothes and sorting accessories. I've put summer scarves away and I've tried to decide which scarves are most flattering with each outfit or coat. How many scarves are too many? It is unlikely that a scarf would wear out! My closet is still crowded and I often overlook some accessories that I already own.

This magenta dress could be worn with any of these scarves or with my silver/rose/purple leaf necklace. I think that my favourite is the blue/turquoise/magenta scarf on the left. But I could wear it with my Diwali scarf or my Ted Baker scarf....The outfit would look quite different. I could also wear them with my grey tunic or my navy dress but I have so many scarves.

My daughter and I started our healthy cooking/food share yesterday. She finds recipes on Pinterest and we cook them in my kitchen on Sunday afternoons. I have more time for grocery shopping so that may be one of my roles. We made loaded cauliflower (2 WW points) from a site called skinnytaste.com. It was simple and a bonus was that Monsieur ate some too. Our goal is to make a casserole and a soup each session. I've never really cooked with my daughter so it is a new chapter in our experiences.
Tomorrow, the Vancouver Writers' Festival begins. I will be meeting one of the authors who is presenting a children's session called Knowledge Unleashed. I believe that they will be discussing sustainable technology. Returning volunteers choose several options in August and are placed in appropriate positions. I liked the idea of unleashing knowledge as I'm a library nerd. I've got 3 other events to work/attend and I'm eligible to attend any event that is not sold out.
It's so sunny and warm this afternoon! I'm cooking a pork loin with roast vegetables for dinner so I'm going to walk to buy an assortment of veggies at the green-grocer/florist. October is a yummy month!
