I had a wonderful long weekend (that's why I haven't written in a while). We went to celebrate Simcoe Day at my friend's parents' place in Simcoe. It was fabulous. My parents took care of the dogs and we headed up there Saturday afternoon. It was fun to sit around have a few drinks and tell stories, play games etc with good friends.

Sunday we drove home dropped the stuff off and then went to my parents to pick up the dogs. It sounds like the weekend went well. I don't think they really wanted to take care of them, but did because we were in a tough spot. I think they were surprised at just how well behaved the dogs really were. It was a little bittersweet though. I know my parents would really love to be taking care of our kids rather than our pets. I would love for that to be the case as well.

Monday I did some yardwork and spoke to a neighbour that I have never spoken to in the 4 years that we've lived there. He was a very nice man. I was outside picking apples up off the ground and then off the small apple tree in our front yard. Geez those things make a mess, and he happened by and we had a small chat. Then I also trimmed the hedges, weeded the garden and raked up everything and bagged it. I actually really like working outside because it gives me a lot of time to think and daydream.

Today I'm back to work. Meh. It gets me out of the house.

You were productive! I miss my garden. It's almost all dried up now. I'm glad you had such a great weekend!
