weekend round-up

A whole weekend of glorious warm summer-like weather you say?? Well what's a gal to do???? Go outside of course!!!!! We soaked up every moment of sunshiney warmness as we could handle. Saturday we headed out for what turned out to be a 7km hike at the conservation area with pal Drew and wee Dakota (one of Sadie's many dog BFF's). Needless to say the dogs ran like maniacs and we hiked our legs off. Got home for a quick freshening up and headed over to help our other pal Richard get set up into his fantastic new house -- that is not only fantastic BUT a mere block from our house! I see many late night stumble homes in our future to be sure. After he stuffed us full of pizza I rolled myself home and fell into the bathtub. The plan was to go out later but obviously you can imagine how that night ended for me. I hear from Marc though that the night out was fun.

Sunday out again for more warm weather soaking in only this time we opted for chores instead of lovely bush time. Raking leaves -- normally my second least favourite yard chore to do (second only to shoveling snow -- whose idea was it to live at the "T" mark of two streets???), was actually not that bad. Warm weather really does fix everything.

Post yard work we headed down to the Laughing Buddha for their first forray into a weekly Sunday Gospel Bluegrass brunch. Marco being the resident banjo guy is, of course, in on the action and it was a great way to spend a Sunday. Doubtful if he'll head down there every single Sunday but it's nice to know that it's there should you fancy a nice ease into your day. Lots of foot stompin' and "Hallelujah -ing" to be sure.....

And nothing else is really worth mentioning -- only things involving absurdly warm temperatures and being outside.
