May long weekends are typically met with rainy or snowy weather. This years was amazing!! Hubby and I headed north to our hometown for a visit. I took this picture to show the bugs on the windshield......Northern Alberta has a lot of bugs! LOL The drive was nice and quiet but lonnnnnng!
We arrived late Friday afternoon and on Saturday I went to town to visit my favourite shops.....the quilt shop was closed for the weekend......I get that retailers need a long weekend too but I won't say I wasn't disappointed. The bank account was happy though!
My favourite giftware store was open though!!!!! I had a great visit with Erica and made some purchases.....the BIG one I will reveal at a later date (it's not even here yet!) But I LOVE my new mug!!!!!!
Lunch on Saturday was DELICIOUS!!!!!!! I took my Dad out to Christies Greenhouse and had lunch at The Farm Truck...a food truck owned and operated by our friends Carey and Diane Perry and their "daughter-in-law" Morgan! It was GREAT to see them too and the food!!!!!! DROOOOOOL!!!!!! We met Son2, Jenna and Jude out there so Jenna and I split the poutine and beer bread burger and then had the toffee pudding for dessert (no pic!) They are fully booked for the summer and I can see why!!!!!
Sunday these guys came out to my Dad's and then a whole bunch of people came for supper.....my brothers and their crew (except one nephew) and family friends.
BBQ and wiener roasts; friends and family....life is GOOD!!!!!
My poor 4 Runner when we got home! Hubby took care of that yesterday and got it all cleaned up!
I've been "subbing" at the high school and this is my last week.......high school has changed ALOT since I was there.....I much prefer the young kiddos! Not that the teenagers are rude or bad just different then the young 'uns!! LOL This afternoon and Friday afternoon....then I will have fulfilled my commitment! Tomorrow I have a Dr appointment in Calgary so was unable to work.
My friend Pam is coming next week to visit for a few days (yippee!!!!!) and I am hoping to have a quilty garage sale on Saturday morning. I still have quite a bit leftover from a couple of years ago but I need to add to it too! That will be next weeks job!
Always something that needs doing! Keeps life interesting!!!!!
