A day off, woo hoo, to sit in the sun and just flop.
well I guess we could have done that. hmmm perhaps we should have?
I was going to say I had a busy week, but we all did. The weather this weekend was grand. Finally. wait, where is the exclamation mark…. !
It was sunny and warm woo hoo, we could tan!
But I wanted to go for a run. Not a long one, I mean I don’t have a bike… so it was just 5k. I like the 5k run, about 2.5 k away there is a nice chip truck… what? but they put on gravy and cheese curds. so it is a healthy snack.
Megan said she wanted some Poutine (psst that is what it is called), so she said she was going to come along… then Jill heard .. my quiet run was going to be more fun… and Aimee too. woo hoo, see if exercise has a reward…
It was great, so sunny, the blossoms are on the trees, everyone is happy, so lots of waving.
When we got back we saw our neighbours, a nice senior couple, were raking their lawn… something we have put off so far for some reason.. nasty exams taking up valuable raking time.. sheish.
The thought of tanning whilst they were raking just seemed so wrong. They are so nice but they have some health issues, we try to help when we can. She makes great cookies too. 🙂
We grabbed our rakes and went next door and took their rakes too, it went quite quickly so we scooted back to our yard and did it as well, well they sort of connect like one big yard.. it just looked wrong to be half done.
Then those nasty neighbours were digging up their flower gardens… well they were looking messy.. hmmm so are ours, wait we don’t have any flowers. Oh well, we took the shovels away from them and started to turn earth, it did look much better. Meg noticed he was pulling a pressure washer out of his garage… now that looked fun. It really squirts far… we washed the walkways, driveways and patio stones, they looked great when we finished. We did sneak in for some breaks now and then, and to wash up, that earth was really dirty.
Then Jill pointed, she, our neighbour was coming out of the house with a tray and heading over to their BBQ, oh great, now we will have to put up with the aromas of a BBQ to torment us. Rice doesn’t do so well on the BBQ. We have been eating a lot of rice. Did you hear us sigh?
nasty neighbours. teasing us like that.
omg, then I saw what she was going to BBQ… STeAkS… and shrimp… come on…. Sweat potatoes too… wrapped in foil…
wait… 6 steaks for two people? 6 big potatoes?
We have nice neighbours.
Aimee ran and got a couple bottles of a nice Cab Frank, I grabbed some onions and red peppers that I drizzled with olive oil and seasoned..
It was a perfect day.
oh, and it turns out, we did tan.
Now I need a day off.
