This weekend was too much busy bodying to actually knit, but that's okay. With September here, I feel there will be many clicking needles during soccer match warm-ups and parent organization meetings, orthodontist appointments and homework revisions (ugh) ... ( I love my kid, but sometimes some of the things we deal with take such over compensation to get over my instinctive "No, I don't want to" feelings.)
This weekend my phone died so there weren't as many snaps as I would've liked to share with you. But that's the story sometimes. Highlights:
Dinner with Mrs Canada and her fabulous family. Such good people, fun people. The littlest Canadian likes the frosted tea cake cookies so she pretty much showed her decorative skills off here.
Picnicking and swimming in the Bay. We were invited to hang out with a couple of families at the South End Rowing Club (not to be confused with the Dolphin Club next door hehe) and see if we could brave the Bay waters. It was warm, air and water -- not the usual year round temps. I'm so impressed with open water swimming, it frightens me a little bit. I did a few lengths between the pier and the first buoy that marks the entrance to the big round laps of Aquatic Park, but I'm not ready for that big circuit, maybe one day! Regardless, super fun. Friends, Sunshine and Guacamole!
Afterwards we went to a cocktail party for one of my husband's former bosses. We managed to clean up a bit first, it was a tight turn around, but we made it.
It was good and fun and an early night. We took a taxi to pick up our son from our friends' that were watching him, and took another friend's boy home with us. Pals are the best on 3 day weekends.
