Sunday night has arrived
and I am feeling refreshed and well rested
while I am waiting for Big Brother to come on
I thought I would sit and catch you up
on what I have been doing
and where I have been
although it has only been a week
it seems like I have been gone forever!
As you know I had 4 extra people here
the last couple of weeks
they used our place for a home base
and then left from here
it is so nice to see family from far away
and really ~ they are not company
other than cleaning the house before they got here
I hardly did a thing other than some laundry
and set the coffee pot for the morning
meals were a joint effort and I never did dishes
gotta love that!
my Aunt Sue is Dad's youngest sister
she married late and had her children later
so there is about a 20+ span between me
and her daughters
she was always the fun one
she would take us out drinking
when we were younger
we had some great times
whenever someone comes "home" from Ontario
one of the must do things is to eat seafood
we took them out to a little place along the coast
I had heard rave reviews about this little take out
and it was well worth the drive
Trev & I actually split an order and we were stuffed
the seafood comes on one plate and the fries on another!
|Heather, Sue, Tom & Allison|
nothing fancy ~ good food and good prices
we will take another trip out here this summer
we took the scenic route home
and through the town of Shediac
which boasts the largest lobster in the world
so we had to stop for the photo op
I found this one on line as I did not take one from this angle...
there are little shops with fun things to pose with
along the boardwalk
Allison & Heather strike a pose
caught in the act!
it was a night we all needed as we had spent the day
at the hospital. I am happy to say that Uncle Bobby is home
and housebound now for a month. He is not a happy boy!
The results came back and there was no permanent damage to his
heart ~ so that is a good thing.
The week-end was spent at the cape and we had a little family gathering
on Saturday. It was a smaller crowd than what we are used to
but there was plenty of good food, drinks and memories made.
after supper we had a little fire
and sat around to catch up ~ tell stories
it got a little chilly
so Dianne put socks on with her flip flops
and her "hooves" were created!
So Friday they pulled out for the long drive home
tears were shed and Aunt Sue joked that now we had our
so this week-end I did a few things
but relaxed as well ~ Saturday we spent the afternoon at the pool
with Samantha ~ she is a fish!
I got some blog reading in this morning
and hope to be back on a more normal schedule this week
Hope you all had a wonderful week-end!
