It’s the July Long-Weekend here in Canada and we’re celebrating our wonderful country’s 149th Birthday! Next year is a big one – I even hear they’re making special Canada tulips to celebrate the occasion.
This year we are enjoying some quality time together! Yesterday (Thursday) I was off and managed to get most of our housework finished up. I also bought some flowers at the pop-up garden centre downtown. It was the ‘last day’ and they had a super sale going on. I snagged 14 flowers for a whopping 7$ which is pretty good. After getting back home, I had a snack break and got to planting my new flowers!
We had steak for dinner from the local butcher shop and made a salad from our garden-lettuce. After dinner (and editing the last of the engagement photos), we had our neighbours over for bevvies and s’mores at our fire pit. We stayed out for a couple of hours, enjoying the company and the warmth. It was a great evening.
Today, after an epic sleep in, we walked over to the park where the Canada Day Celebrations were going down. It was a bit breezy today and cloud covered, but it made for a much more pleasant walk. Cameras in tow, we toured the grounds and took a few photos of some flowers and of course the Canada Geese! Not too much was happening in the park at the time we were there – some vendors, treats, and a stage with a band playing awesome rock music. The clouds started rolling in shortly after that so we decided to start the hike back up two big hills towards home. We got rained on briefly during the walk, but were mostly dried off by the time we got back.
Deciding we were hungry, we headed out to Kelsey’s for a late lunch/early dinner. We’re back to relaxing (and working on photos, crafts, etc) until dusk tonight when we will gather with our neighbours to watch the fireworks from our front yard.
Tomorrow we’re going to chill with our friends in the neighbouring town – enjoying bevvies and BBQ delights! Sunday its back to driving around to visit family before we head back to work on Monday.
HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!
