It’s good Friday in Vancouver and another long weekend when those with real jobs take time off and us freelancers catch up on our never ending to do lists or organize our taxes (and some of us a few years of taxes). I am working all weekend and not really even a huge fan of sweets, so I’ll be admiring the photos of chocolate and distracting myself from the real work by adding to this list of Easter treats, perhaps sussing out some brunches and looking out for generally anything bunny-related.
