Summer is fast coming to an end. I look forward to fall. Cooler temps and pretty leaves.
Kids start back to school here in the next few weeks.

I hope y'all have had a good summer. Mine has been busy, hence my absence. All is good though. Nitro and Zak are still as cute as ever. emoticon

The new job has me in front of a computer all day, so not much movement...I've gained 10 lbs!!! emoticon Ugh!
Thank the Good Lord for SP emoticon
I'll try not to be a stranger. (o:

I am having a slight break.. Fed 130 hungry campers this morning and prepared 100 bag lunches. And then I drove to town and dropped the car off at the garage. On mom's birthday we took her a birthday cake in the afternoon and I got a flat tire. The tire is ruined.. I have all wheel drive and so I now must replace all four tires - two for sure - but all four because they are getting worn. While there at the garage doing a semi annual service and inspection.. Garage just called need something called a rotor and pads... Something is metal on metal and I'm told it needs to be repaired now..
Go ahead.. But I need the car back by 3:30 as I must return to work and cook supper. Today is BBQ day..
Delivery Truck is late .. It has been coming around 7 am .. Today I leave at 9:30 and no truck but I gave clear instructions to the new postion created this week to my dishwasher now front of house facilitator.
This position. Is a buffer between me and dishwashers - we are hiring one more person and having a rotating staff helper .. This facilitator will also be trained to serve some meals so I can have a break - ie - an afternoon and supper off occasionally - this is good if we have the right person.. Right now we do. A young 26 year old who is mature and responsible - and the owner after talking with me has made this transition .. And offered her a job next year if she wants to come back. Let's see how it works out..

Dalhouise likes air conditioners - he sits in front of our new one when we are at the condo.. And now in the car he get in between the seats and let's the cool air blow on him while driving with us. King Dalhouise is no fool of a dog.

So now I wait at home for the phone call telling me my car is ready and my visa is going to cry.

Two hundred hungry campers everyday for the last two weeks... I'm exhausted. It has been extremely hot. The thermometer read 36 / 40 c everyday as well. At least I have been drinking lots of water.
At night there has been no relief.. Hot and sticky. My wife even has allowed me to have a fan.. She hates fans - says they make her sick. I shower .. A few moments later I am just as sweaty as I was before the shower.. So my point is.. My sleeps have been restles, waking up uncomfortable and tired.
But today and tomorrow I am off.. Time to recharge - to get some needed recuperation.
So off to Vancouver we drive.. Stuck - dead stop both lanes of traffic as emergency crews deal with an accident. I hope no one dies.. But it seems very serious. 45 minutes late we are on our way.. At least it was overcast and 20 c as we sat on the highway waiting for the road to open.
We are heading to Vancouver to buy an air conditioner if we can find any. We do a couple of stops in large stores to be told they don't have any left.. Not looking good for success ..
We go to Costco - my membership has expired over a year ago - we are hopeful they might have an air conditioner - nope - but I did renew my membership and get a new credit card. And a hotdog.
Ok onto the mall. Final stop with not really much hope of finding an conditioner - surprise - surprise - we go into Sears and they have just received a shipment of them. We buy one..
Service sucked - but I have it and now I'm just waiting to turn it on.
( it was laid down in my car to get it home so we have to,wait three hours before I plug it in and turn it on.). It better work....
Oh we came home - sat it up,right - went out to eat supper..
Now I'm writing and resting..

Sounds like everyone is having a great summer so far.
Chili in the summer is good. My hubby likes chili dogs.

I like clean dogs. I gave Nitro and Zak baths outside a bit ago. They could use it again.
I don't call Zak my little stink bug for no reason! emoticon

So it begins .. Again.. Summer camp is about to start on Saturday and we have 200 registered.
20 will be leaving two days later to go on a canoe trip leaving me 180 to feed three meals every day. This is a large enough number to cause stress.. Where and the world am I going to store all this food.
Right now at 6:30 AM I am expecting the delivery truck. Over 8000$ in supplies are on their way. And this is most for four days, with a little carry over. I will be going to a three day delivery, more stress as I have to stay on top of inventory and cooking all this food / storage, and reordering. Yes I do it all my self ...
200 people wow... 180 people for days on end.. Spring groups usually only have 180 for a day or two at the most and then they leave and the next group is small so we can bounce back. Now there is no bouncing back just. More and more mouths to feed.. Food to order, food to store, food to cook...

Well, I had water. Iced tea is summery though. The chili was nice and my DH even heated it up so I didn't even have to do that part.

I increased my step goal recently and am having some trouble reaching it without a third walk. The dogs don't seem to mind.

We're having chili tonight. I have to be gone this afternoon and the chili was previously made then frozen so I'll just have to come home and heat it up. Chili isn't very summery food but I am choosing easy tonight.

21 days of work with no day off.. I am so ready for this weekend. But first I need to get through today. 85 people here for breakfast and lunch and 250 for a BBQ supper.
I hope to go to a movie, maybe find a geo cache or two, possibility of going to a bird sanctuary, and of course my wife wants to go to a mall to do some shopping.
Oh - my mother has been complaining so I must go visit her as well..
These are my weekend plans.
I hope you all are about to enjoy your weekend and have some rest too.

I had an appointment for Dalhouise to go to the groomers - I cancelled it for now. Noni has been playing hairdresser and has been cutting his hair. He does not look the prettiest right now but he is not a little fur ball. We have had 30 c degree weather days on end.. So stinking smeldering hot - he has been one very hot dog

I tried to take a video of her plumping up her bedding but she figured out I was recording her and she stopped to pose. What a ham!

She's actually better on the leash than the little spaniel though she's funny about food. Lean times in her past, I guess. She's very playful but she's a nervous thing. We're working on not chasing the chickens.

Having trouble posting a pic of the new girl.

I just brought home a new dog yesterday. A small but *very* powerful pitbull with a checkered past. It means lots of nice, long walks while she settles in and extra calories for me at snack time.

So Sunday was an off day. I haven't any more of these for three weeks I think.. If I hear correct the next three weekends have bookings and this means I am working.
So on my last off day we / Noni and I made the most of it.
Church - a little hike at Brandywine Falls - a long stroll window shopping in Whistler and an enjoyable supper at the Keg on the third floor patio.
Even though it was only one day it felt like a whole weekend : yet not to busy to tire us out.




























Thus ended the date with Noni.
No not yet - we stopped in to say hi to my Mom then it was time to go back to camp and spend time with the Dalhouise. I had to leave him home as I knew we would be going in and out of stores and eating out.. He was a happy pooch when we got home - you would think we left him for weeks or something...

day's end and now I can have a rest with the family

So on the BBQ I cooked hotdogs and beef burgers and some chicken. In the oven I baked vegi dogs and vegi burgers.
Salad bar had about 40 items on it. Such as toss salad, spinach salad, potato salad, pasta with tuna, pasta salad, couscous, bean salad and there was a few more. We had sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, - oh I can't remember all we had lots to choose from.
I also placed out some tomato soup,and navy bean soup and a insert of fried rice.

Like I said the owner is happy.. All the guess we're very satisfied.
Even before I began cooking I had people coming up to me. Marvelling at the aroma of charcoal whisping around the camp. People were surprised it was not gas but a real BBQ ..
My point exactly to the owner later.. I think he thought I could not BBQ for this many and long.. Two hours out there in the sun and waves of heat from the BBQ and the sun - I loved every moment .. And the food was a success too

You described it so beautifully that I could see the mountains, flowers, etc., hear the birds and feel the breeze.

Lovely!

Saddle sore, but feeling engergzed. Putting on my cool looking mirror sunglasses I hop onto my bike saddle and head out the gate. Construction.. Half the road is missing and the other half is cracked and pot holed. But it is sunny, and I have supper all prepared (lasagna) so I have time to go for a long bike ride. We - my wife and I drive the four miles to the single lane bridge, ah we keep going to the four mile / eight mile viewing spot along the river bank. Do I stop? No even though this is the furthest we have ever gone on this road. We keep going and going to we reach some houses... We come to the house with the huge yellow smiley face hanging on a tree. This is where cell overage ends when leaving town towards the camp.
At this point we turn around. I am not sure what way the wind is blowing. I thought we were facing it but as we return back home it still feels like we are facing it, it is becoming more difficult to make those peddles go round and round.. Are we going up hill? It looks flat and when driving the car I never notice a difference in engine sounds.
I now and then look up to admire the mountain being swallowed by a cloud - just majestic.
I notice the wild roses in bloom as I coast on past splattering the brush along side the road with pink blossoms - not to mention the wild berries that are still in flowering mode.
We are well past the construction zone and I only hear the wind in my ears and the chirping of birds. I must make time to to do this again, but not today as I seem to have sat a little too much on that tiny little seat.

Dalhouise is not a happy camper today.. But I don't care! It is for his own good even though he doesn't understand.
Ring - ring - ring.. Our neighbour phones us.. His dog was killed last night by a cougar. He is phoning to let us know to keep our dogs tied or in the house as this large cougar is hanging around the area - also we must be aware to make sure none of our campers are wandering alone either - safety...
anyways I pick up Dalhouise and carry him back inside the cabin. Later in the morning I go get him and fasten him to the chains I have. One of the staff replied that they have never seen him tied up before.. I replied. It happens now and then. I have one at the cabin entrance and one at the entrance to the dining tent, just for occasions like today. The one by e cabin does get used more often in the middle of the night if Dalhouise decides to wake me up to go outside because I don't want him eaten..
So now he is sitting with me on the swing tied.. I guess this OK .. He is happy to be sitting with me.. ** I am off now - it is the weekend.. Hurray

Marty, all the pictures were wonderful but of course you know my favorites are always of Dalhouise, he really looks good for 13, I think one of the reasons is because you are so good about him getting his exercise.

I hope your mother is in a good mood!

this is one reason my 13 year old Dalhouisevis still in good health.. 6 months of the year he running here - there - every where

I don't understand why the May 24 weekend is a week before the 24th. I remember in my youth going to the cottage on this long weekend - this is opening season for most cottages and trailers and for planting the gardens.. Not now.. Middle of the month is just to early.. Cold rains, possiblity of snow still looms heavy.. I think the government should change it back to the May 24th. And keep it there.
I did have a good day yesterday. I walked around the Boundary trail, sat by the pond spotting some birds and relaxing, sat on the swing with my pooch Dalhouse, rode my bike to the beach with my wife, watched a movie on TV, had a nap and I let my wife cut my hair.
I think that covers everything ...
Now today... It is pouring rain right now.. Sounds pleasant as it hits the tin cabin roof, and pours off onto the ground. Looks nice too as I peek out the windows and see rain falling unto green tree leaves. I think today another restful, napping afternoon is in store for me. This morning we will drive into town to attend church - have a stop to visit my mother at the nursing home. That might be a little stressful.. Depending on her mood.

Do be careful! I don't like thinking about the bears and cars!

So glad you got your delivery on time.

Enjoy your time off! You have certainly earned it!

He doesn't have a care in the world right now... Just happy and lazy.

Deliver came - delivery came around 8:30 ish we were just finishing breakfast. So all my stress and anxiety was not needed... But I will make sure I stock pile enough food to the future to cover delivery days. Last year we had nothing but issues with them coming late in the afternoon many times, I was told this issue was solve... Sales people are liars.

Today if it is not raining the plan is to rest,do some easy hiking and or do some cycling, keep an eye open for any bears wandering along the road and hopefully see some birds and get a picture of these. Most importantly not to be ran over by any crazy speeding intoxicated car drivers.
Long weekend is here... Hurray.. Pay day was yesterday, I am off for three whole days. I usually fill theses days up with activities - but so far I have no plans other than the above mentioned

someone was having a good solid sleep .. And it wasn't me..

Good morning - kind of..
I had a stressful night worried about today's delivery. My lunch ingredients are on that truck.
The truck until last delivery has been arriving around 630 - 8 AM perfect timing. Last delivery truck arrived 12:30 just after guess sat down to eat lunch. I am to be dropped numbers 1- 5 to get here early - I was drop number 9.
What to do if it is late?
I can change menu from perogies to Mac and cheese... So we can feed the 115 people..
Supper is here.. Turkey dinner
Tomorrow's breakfast is here
Tomorrow's lunch I can impervise ..
So should I just refuse this order if it comes late and reorder everything for next Tuesday? .
Long weekend OFF ...???

I'm coming dad

OK, I'm here..

Not sure what was going on in his head yesterday. He went home with Noni around 4 and went to bed. He almost never follows Noni home if I'm in the kitchen working. She has to lease him and "drag" him.
We also have a group here and he isn't hanging around the teachers as per usual..
It is very - Very hot out day and inside the cabin is cooler.. Maybe he is just an intelligent dog!
When I returned home at 7 he was happy and acting normal..

I think he may have became dehydrated .. His water source for drinking fresh ice cold water has disappeared. The melting water from the ice machine is no longer under the kitchen .. Today I must start putting out a water dish on the kitchen deck.. And I should go look to see if I can put a dish under the new location of the ice machine - then fresh water would always be available.
