    • Thanks!
      I had a GREAT time!

      It was an AWESOME week.
      It was also my birthday week. I'm now 48.
      We had some amazing meals. Most were adapted to primal for me
      I ate and drank SO much this week!
      I also laughed SO much!

      We were in a trailer. With AC THANK GOODNESS!!!
      There were blender drinks. There was a mini inflatable pool.
      There were thunderstorms. We never did spent the afternoon at the beach.
      Every time we got ready for the beach, a thunderstorm appeared

      We created a drinking game out of "Uno" during one thunderstorm afternoon

      We also discovered that if you reduce Buttershots liqueur it makes a terrific sauce for fruit and for cheese cake

      Today, my Farmer sent the following texts out to his friends:
      Beer. Gin. Lemonaide. Our house. 3pm.

      We had a lovely afternoon and evening.
      About 10 people ended up at our place.
      We fed and "watered" them

      A candle was our "bonfire"

      • Saturday

        My parent's anniversary was yesterday. So my sister and I gave them today off from working at the booth.
        This meant I worked at the booth.
        Damage:
        One cup of caramel turtles and fudge ice cream, a handful of gummy worms, a few onion rings, several fries...

        I was there from 11:30 till 9:30.

        It was HOT

        My feet are sore.

              It's a food booth/office for a trailer park. The trailer park located on Lake Erie. My parents have run the booth for the owners for the past...18 (?) years. They take care of parking the transient trailers, looking after the washrooms and operating the booth. (Another guy takes care of the seasonal campers and the lawns etc)

              The booth sells fresh cut fries ('cause Dad hates frozen ones), hand made burgers (no fillers) and on toasted bakery buns with Vadaila onions and tomatoes, perch burgers and dinners (fries, coleslaw & tarter sauce) sausages, hot dogs, onion rings, poutine, about 10 flavours of ice cream, sundaes, milkshakes, chocolate bars, chips, and about 20 different 5 cent candies.

              Does that answer your questions?

              • Yup. Sounds like classy junk food at least, ROFL! I'll take a burger...

                Perch burger? Intriguing. And probably delicious.

                • Sunday

                  I spent the day at Sunfest!

                  I left home at 10am with my Daughter and my Niece. My sister ran a 10K in London at 8am and we met her at Sunfest. We wandered through the vender tents, spending money (ALOT ) we had Pad Thai (and my stomach bloated up ) and listened to music. They were ready to leave at 2, but I wanted to hear Five Alarm Funk at 3:45, so my Daughter went home with my sister. Around 5ish I met up with my band conductor and spent the rest of the evening with her. We saw Calypso Rose among other acts and I left at 10:30.

                  I bought a cute little dress, a wrap skirt, a beach coverup, a large Indian cotton blanket/table cloth, a shoulder bag, some "natural" insect repellant, a jar of Shea Butter, a Five Alarm Funk CD, a handmade long sleeved Himalayan winter shirt, Peppermint headache cream, and a wooden pick for my hair.

                  I think that's all

                  Oh, I forgot the slices of fresh pineapple on a stick

                  That doesn't count my Daughter's purchases...

                  I LOVE Sunfest!!!!!!

                  • OK, so I did forget a couple of things I bought

                    I took a photo of all of it:

                    Clockwise from the top: silk wrap skirt, Himalayan top, green dress, CD, lemongrass sachet (for the car), headache cream, Shea butter, insect repellent, hair pin on a strawberry mat, shoulder bag, and the pink swim coverup all laying on the Indian blanket (which is covering a king sized bed!)

                    Here's a concert photo from Sunfest:


                    And here's a shot of my Farmer's "red neck" cup holder that he made on Friday night. With a drill. In a BRAND NEW chair!

                      I ran/walked 2.5k this morning.

                      This afternoon I took some beer out to my Farmer while he was combining the EVIL wheat
                      Here's a few photos for the non farmers:

                        That looks like something I would see back home, if anyone actually thought that far . Yes, I come from a long line of redneck folkses.

                            It's funny, for most of my life I've been a black, grey, brown, tan,olive green girl.
                            But that's changes over the last year or so...

                            • Tuesday

                              I did some packing today!
                              I packed 2 boxes of school texts, a box of my clothes, filled a bag of clothes to give away, and a bag to throw away.
                              It's a start.

                              Soccer Daughter had a soccer game tonight. It was a tie. She has a HUGE blister on her heel

                              Lily dug a hole today:


                              Taking a break:


                              Yes, that's her tail!:


                              Here's the hole. It even has a curve in it!:


                              And then this evening she ate corn on the cob!
                              I held the cob and she chewed the corn all off it!
                              Silly girl.

                              • You're timing your change in tastes well. Bright colours are all over the place right now. That happened to me in the 80s. I just got fed up with neutrals and earth tones, and everybody else seemed to do so all at the same time. I guess we had overdosed. And then we overdosed on neon colours and swung back to grunge... And around and around we go.
