Weekend review

Joe returned home Friday night with the company vehicle. Saturday morning I drove into the city with him to drop that off and pick up our truck. Since we were in town, we stopped at our favorite mall...he got a new shirt and I got a wrap dress for the company retreat in Jasper. It's 2 weeks away but this was cutting it close in my mind!

We puttered around the yard after a light lunch, tidied up a few things including re stacking our inukshuk we brought back from northern ON last year. Then is was a cool glass of refreshment and some quiet reading.

Sunday we started our new get healthier regime with a morning workout on the treadmill. I went first while Joe read the Sunday paper, and then I did a load of laundry and checked email while Joe had his turn. It's quite funny, we didn't have anything planned for the rest of the day, so what did Joe suggest? Going for a walk!

So we headed into St A and parked by one of their extensive trails. Although it was overcast, we had a great time, seen some aspects of the city that we don't normally see. The trail has many branches to it so the next time we'll go right instead of left and see what's around the bend!

Supper was cold meat, cheese, and homemade salsa on baguette slices. And an intense game of Scrabble! Although at one point I had 5 E's...I went on to win but only by virtue that Joe couldn't play his Q.

Chatted with Les and the grandkids are doing better. Joseph got over his fear of being ridiculed by his class mates over his cast. Alex has been taken off all pain meds. His personality changed for the worse while he was on morphine and the codeine wasn't much better. By all indications, he isn't in any pain and he is back to his joyful self. We'll see them the week after next...they are going to puppy sit our 15 year old English Springer while we are in Jasper. As a bonus we get to attend Joseph's kindergarten graduation ceremony. Lucky us!

No stitching done. The weekend was all about togetherness. I am so ready for the week - bring it on! Fred, I'm coming for you later this afternoon!

Sounds like a wonderful relaxing weekend...I love those weekends that come and you realize that you have nothing planned. If I don't get a chance to post again, have a wonderful vacation...it sounds amazing.
