The best holiday in forever! (first installment)

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      3 comments

We had a fantastic holiday. It was wonderful to head back up to Lake Athabasca, spending time on the lake and revisiting Uranium City. That was a bit hard on the heart strings, but I think Garry and I both got some closure as well as the kids we... Read more

Just checking in...

Just a quick check in this morning before heading out the door to work. We got home last evening and I'm still working my way out of holiday mode and back into work mode. I will drop in after work today to read the posts and catch up with every... Read more

I need to drive Garry to work this morning so that I have the truck to run all my errands. It feels rather strange not to be heading off to work, but at the same time very good. Yesterday we invited the couple over that has kindly offered t... Read more

Yesterday looked like the day was going to be rainy and then the sun decided to make an appearance, but with less of a vengeance that it has been. It was a beautiful sunny day, more normal temps for us and a lovely breeze to go hand in hand with... Read more

We had a lovely normal temperature kind of day yesterday. Sunshine interspersed with clouds and a nice breeze. It was actually nice to sit out on the back deck after my chores were all done. I got my floors all more doggie footprin... Read more

Wow, it's been a very long time since I've had such a good night's sleep. I did wake up a couple of times during the night, but immediately fell back to sleep instead of tossing and turning. I went to bed at 8:30 last evening as I was so tired a... Read more

Yay, today is my last work day before I start some holiday time. I was supposed to go in on Monday, but have been able to get it off also. As I have been having Fridays off for the past couple of months to use up my overtime holidays... Read more

You just got to love Wednesday, even if it's not a payday Wednesday. Half the work week is done and after today you are heading full speed ahead to the weekend. *grin* Not much for news on the home front. Just the usual hot and humid during... Read more

I looked at the calendar this morning to check out the date....time is certainly slipping by at a fast pace. It's hard to believe that it is the 7 of August already. Next week we leave on holidays and by the time we get back we will be closing i... Read more

Feeling damp seems to be a way of life...

This summer has been a summer of more humidity in the air than we have ever had. I feel like I am always damp and sticky! We had a beautiful hot and sunny day yesterday, but the humidity really saps the energy. Last night another massive thu... Read more

We had a very hot and sunny day yesterday followed by an amazing thunderstorm during the night. All the windows are fogged up this morning on the outside due to the humidity in the air. But the sun is shining again, so promises to be another war... Read more

Yay, a bonus this weekend!

I had a great day off work yesterday. Progress made in one of my projects. I had the whole day to myself as Garry was at work. Then he phoned to let me know that he had been invited to go golfing after work. Seeing as it was the first time this ... Read more

Woke up this morning, which a blessing just in itself, decided that I would get a crock pot of veggie soup going. It's so nice to go to my garden and get things or at the very least use up the stuff from my garden last year that is in the freeze... Read more

I'm running a bit later than usual this morning...there is nothing more conducive to sleeping than the cooler temperatures and gentle raining. The rain started around midnight last night and is supposed to continue all day. A gentle rain is ni... Read more
