My Weekend Away
Tuesday, July 06, 2010
I had a great weekend away. I left wednesday after work to go to my parents cottage. I got there about 9, after a 3-1/2 hour drive. It was a ncie drive though. I was the first to get there, and then my sister and her husband and then my parents. We were all pretty close but I don't have a key yet and so I had to wait outside for a bit. It had rained that day and so I got quite a few mosquito bites lol.
I have so many bites it's not even funny. Mosquitos love me so they end up leaving everyone else alone and coming for me. I'll have to post some pics or something lol, my legs are covered. Thursday and Friday weren't all that warm but me and my sister went swimming anyway, the water was nice. A cold shock at first but we got used to it quickly. I used my super expensive, super strong sunblock and I still got a bit of colour. It was great stuff though and I'll be buying it again because I burn so easily. Actually everyone was using mine lol. I was the only one not to get burnt this time around ^_^
We did some fireworks on friday night and saturday night, as well the canada day fireworks that our cottage association did on saturday. A friend and her boyfriend came on friday night. He's a cop amd crazy tall lol, he's 6'6" It's good he was there because that night some drunk guy on an ATV came down our driveway, its quite a steep hill, and he was looking for beer and making a scene. He was arguing and swearing a lot and just being rude. Mike, the cop, was trying to get the guy to walk back to his cottage and leave the ATV but he wouldn't and Mike didn't want make a scene on our property so we let the guy leave. He peeled out of our driveway so fast, he did a wheelie up our very steep driveway and almost lost it there for a sec, it so looked like he was gonna crash. He didn't come back lol. Anyway it was an eventful night.
saturday and sunday we sat down by the water the whole day pretty much, on the dock, and swam for a couple hours. It was way cooler down by the water. It's quite a hill up to the cottage, and lots of very steep steps so I got my exercise just going up and down lol. Julie and Mike, friends, actually swam all the way across the lake and back, me and my sister Jen had gone about half way but we'd like to go all the way sometime. I made it one of my goals for the summer ^_^ We had lots of fun anyway. We were celebrating Julie's birthday too, which is next weekend, and she wanted to cook for us. So she brought all the stuff and made us a really good dinner. I didn't eat healthy by any means, I had lkots of grilled meat and potatoes, snacks like chips and popcorn, even a couple smores. We ate well lol, just not healthy ^_^
saturday me and Jen actually started feeling a little sick because of all the time we spent in the sun. We don't have air conditioning there so it was really hot. We're taking a couple window ac units this weekend so that the cottage can be a place to hide from the heat for a bit at least. Even with fans and all the windows open it was just way too hot and humid. I ended up leaving a few hours earlier on sunday to get away from the heat.
I had a great time but it was way too hot lol. They also need to fix the ladder into the water. The top step is broken so it was a little awkward to get out of the water, but we managed. My parents are still there for the week and I think they're getting a new one before I go back on friday. I have aunts and uncles going this weekend too so I'm looking forward to that. And we'll have air this time lol.
Anyway, I guess that's enough rambling about my weekend lol, I hope everyone had a good holiday ^_^
