Raven red and tiramisu

Sio has finally brought Busey into the family!! Altho now that he is here she may rethink his name as she thinks he now feels more like a fat lady. On Friday she took me to her and Will's new apartment. It's great and they are both pretty excited about this new venture in their lives. Their building is in a very pretty residential section. From what I understand lots of Italians!!

Lots of things still to be done but Thursday is closer at hand.

Welcome to the family Murray

Great weekend!! Sailing with friends on the Ottawa River and back to their place for swimming and curry. I made a delicious vegetable curry (toot toot)and Heather ended the meal with a yummy apple rhubarb crumble Sunday a lovely drive into the wilds of Quebec with Iain. Our romantic picnic turned into sitting on a bench at the municipal yard in Bowman. There are lovely lakes in Quebec but unless you own property on them you CANNOT get to them. it was nice spending time just us.

Purple I Pod and Brownies

Had a great Birthday! Did some chores around the house, got caught up on some emails, read a lot and then Iain made dinner. Joyce and John came by around 6:30 and we whipped back a couple of Birthday-politans (gin and cran juice). Iain made an artichoke asiago cheese thing y that was absolutely fab. Then the power went off and stayed off for about 2 hours. Thank goodness the rest of his meal was barby related ---- fajita burgers with salsa and avocado and a mixed green salad. Joyce brought dessert which rounded the meal out wonderfully altho I was very full and it was a bit difficult to sleep.

Thank you all for the BD wishes!!

Roots are Showing

All of a sudden Iain and I realized in just over 3 weeks we will be without family room furniture. So now we are on the frantic search for new furniture. You would think this would be an exciting endeavour and it is. However, me being me I am using it as yet another reason to not be able to sleep. What if I pick the wrong colour? What if I pick the wrong style?

The "kids" minus Will are coming for dinner on Sunday, It is so nice having them all here. It is supposed to be hot hot hot!! Should I fill up the pool (LOL)? Prosecco, tandoori chicken and grilled corn. Dan's mom has sent a blueberry pie -- YUM YUM.

The pussy cats have got it right on these hot days. Find a comfy spot and STAY.

Four Day Headache

Thought I would wake this morning with a clear head but NOOOOOOOO!!! The top of my cranium feels like it is going to blow off and my eyeballs feel like they have been laying in sand all nite. I did feel worse yesterday so maybe things are looking up. Of course since it is the first of the month I have a lot more things to do in my cleaning ritual, I sucked it up yesterday and got most of it done but I need to fininsh today. I have to get back to the treadmill as well (work off some of the spritzers).
Tomorrow is my sweetys BD and I have asked The Roys for an impromtu dinner. Hope they can come. Gotta arrange a golfing day for Iain and"the boys". Holly can you let me know a day you and Dan are off so we can arrange a golf afternoon and BD supper for your ole man??
We are also planning a NS trip in September. We are driving down which should be quite the adventure. Sio will be moved out but has graciously offered to take my car and come out to CP to take care of my babies. Isn't she a sweetheart?!
