    • Lets see...
      Wednesday...
      I took University Son and my Daughter into London for the afternoon. I had an appointment at the dealership for my Beetle - both of my running lights were out (warranty covered it) We did some shopping. I bought a 7'x7' inflatable pool (like the one at my friends) to set up in the backyard We also bought a Galaxy Tab for Army Wannabe Son (a tablet). Umm...what else did I buy? Oh yeah Snow Leopard for our macs. 'cause Lion is coming out in July and you have to have Snow Leopard to upgrade...I also bought an external DVD drive/burner for my Daughter's Netbook.

      I had Mall food - Thai Express Yellow Curry (with bean sprouts instead of rice) and a Tall Starbucks Tazo Chai Latte...

      Thursday...
      Army Wannabe Son went up to Tobermory with a friend to his cottage. My Daughter ad I went back into London because my Daughter's health card had expired. The lineup was surprisingly short. We ate at the market, then we went shopping. I got a cute little black sundress, she got some black yoga pants (for work) and we got a pair of black slouch suede (no heel) boots - on SALE (they were $80 and we got them for $20!) We wear the same size shoes. Another Tall Starbucks Tazo Chai Latte, only this one was iced. I liked it.

      Once home, she packed some clothes. I dropped her at a friends house. There is a dance tonight and then tomorrow she is helping her friend volunteer at the Canada Day celebrations. I had some wine and when my Farmer got home, we went grocery shopping and then ate leftovers for supper (pork chops). I also had some dark chocolate...

      After supper I worked with my Butterflies, teaching them to walk on my left and right side (naming the side and treating them)

      • I'm jealous of your weekend with the girls, but happy to hear you had a fantastic time. I don't have a close group of gals to do that kind of stuff with. Of course, the fact that I move provinces every few years has a part to play in that.

        I'm pretty sure I have some of those same Grand Canyon photos. Amazing place. And all those freaky stupid fearless people who wander way out on the rocks close to the edge...gave me the shivers! One of the rather peculiar things I saw there were a couple of Buddist monks (or at least they were dressed like that) perching out on a ledge...the colours of their robes against the red rocks and the blue sky combined with the expressions on their faces as they photographed one another was pretty cool. Okay, I'm odd, but it struck me as amusing.

            You should try to find a few! I highly recommend it. They are awesome for the good times and absolutely essential for the bad times.

            I've always lived within 10km of where I am right now. And I've lived in this house for almost 24 years. One of the girls is my sister, another one I met in highschool (she became my maid of honour), the 3rd I met over 20 years ago and the "newest" member I met 14 years ago

            A couple of people might have the same photos
            I know! There were a few idiots when I was there too!



            The monks would have been neat to see.

            Nothing better than a bargain!
            I don't doubt that you will take tons of GC photos. It is SO immense, I couldn't stop taking photos! I think I took over 300 of the GC!

                • Well, July and the summer season has officially started
                  Lord help me, I will NOT be able to have a moderate/Primal stance on alcohol...
                  Friday
                  We were invited to a BBQ and Fireworks for Canada Day.
                  I had a burger with no bun, and salads (not the pasta salad)
                  BUT I drank. I had a Palm Bay cooler and a glass of wine before I went to the party.
                  I drank a bottle of wine at the party and then I had a Palm Bay and then I had about 4 Blue Caracau with Mango juice shooters. OMG! They were awesome!
                  We had a huge bonfire and we watched the town's fireworks from my friend's backyard.
                  We decided that we shouldn't drive home and we crashed at my friend's place.

                  Saturday
                  We got up around 9 and left my friends about 9:30-10 am. I stayed awake until 10:30 and then I climbed into bed until 2pm!!!
                  My friend's house is an evil house!!!!
                  We didn't accomplish very much on Saturday. Watched a LOT of movies
                  Red Riding Hood
                  Beastly
                  Chasing Liberty
                  These first three we watched with our daughter.
                  Then I watched:
                  Personal Best
                  The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
                  Hedwig and the Angry Inch
                  I went to bed at 4am...

                  Sunday
                  Up around 11
                  We pulled the trailer out of the barn and I packed some things into it.
                  I had a cooler, and then about 3/4 of a bottle of wine.
                  We sat in our 7'x7' inflatable pool. Josie came in with us
                  BBQ Ham and burgers with roasted veggies for supper
                  I have a buzz...

                  Help me...This is a typical summer for me and I will NOT loose anything with another summer like this!!!!



                  Oops! I almost forgot! The other day I wore a pair of jean capris that I COULD NOT pull on last summer!!!!!!!

                    • well good news on wearing the capris from last year! Lets hope you can put them on by the end of this summer!

                      and I thought I was a booze hag!!! heck, I'm a learner in comparison to you!

                      • Summer time is party time. Live it up and bollocks to weight-loss I say! You got your smaller pants on, what else matters!?

                        I am using winter over here to get into shape, I'm off the booze, I'm strict with my diet and I'm working out, but come summer you better believe I'll be living it up! It's very primal you see. Winter is a time for being indoors, living on stored rations, sleeping a lot. Summer is festival time; when you stay up late, eat lots of fresh food, make babies (or at least practice ), it's marguarita time baby!!

                        I'm jealous of your summer right now, don't you dare restrict yourself... Enjoy!

                          Honey, you have NO idea! I'm just warming up for the summer...
                          Although, I'm quite tame compared to what I used to be!

                              • Thanks Ellie!

                                I was MIA from the internet for the week.
                                Did anyone miss me?

                                Monday morning, one of my girlfriends called and asked if I wanted to go camping during the week. Of course I said YES!
                                Four of us spent from Monday night thru to Friday morning camping (in her 5th wheel)
                                We had the whole section of the campground to ourselves!

                                We went to the beach one day - which we also had to ourselves

                                Then we set up a 7'x7' inflatable pool on the next site and we lounged in it for the rest of the week!
                                We ate VERY well. The nick name of one of my friends is "Martha Stewart"
                                We drank VERY well.
                                We laughed, we partied, we had a great time!
                                My one friend sunburnt her ass...

                                Then once we got home Friday morning, I packed the trailer and my Farmer, and I & the Papillons met my friend & her husband and their dog (with the 5th wheel) at 3pm and we drove to another campground for the weekend:

                                We came home this afternoon and I spent some time in our 7'x7' pool.

                                I'm afraid to weigh or measure myself...
