Friday (July 18) I was officially on summer vacation. I go back to work on August 18. Yup, that's right - I am on vacation for a whole month. Do you think I'll run out of things to do...
So far this weekend there's been a whole lot of eating outside. Here is Friday's salmon burger with mayo and capers with BBQ roasted asparagus.
Saturday my brother, sister-in-law and Princess came over for a visit.
There has also been a lot of outdoor's embroidery work being done. I am part of a pin cushion and needlebook swap and my swap buddy is Rachel from New Zealand. I've completed the pin cushion and I am now working on the needlebook (sorry I can't post any pictures because Rachel checks my blog).
When it's too hot in the woods where we live we take a break and go to the ocean where there's always a nice breeze.
Last night Dave wasn't playing music with his band so we made a fire in our pit and just plain enjoyed ourselves. Check the white socks ! I needed those to ward-off the mosquitos from eating up most of my ankles.
Today we went to a local festival where we found yard sale items (and of course we just had to buy a bag full), loads of seafood to eat, live music and a lot of people we had'nt seen in a long time so it was a pleasant visit.
Tomorrow I am going on a road trip with my friend Clarisse (aka Clo) to Halifax in this :
Should be fun - too bad the forecast is for rain. But Clo and I still know how to have fun :
