Lots of home-y stuff going on at the moment...planting...paint-touch-ups...weekend house guests...a little golf. All good stuff.
Eldest daughter is coming down next weekend, time to catch up with her and all the exciting things going on in her life.
Trying desperately to work out a trip to Miami to see my younger daughter and son-in-law, and catch up on their life-changing opportunities too.
Summer always seems to bring a sense of hurry with it. Don't understand where the saying "lazy days of summer" comes from.
Niagara-on-the-Lake is in full swing with this year being the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812. Costumed characters roaming the streets, pointing out all the important historical sights.
A huge party is planned for Canada Day - July 1. Tragically Hip will be playing on the Common. We are expecting 20,000 attendees. That might just be a day to stay home.

The weather now is glorious. Sunny, warm...with just an edge of a cool breeze in the air. If it stayed this way all summer, I would be thrilled. But it won't.

A couple of doctors' appointment scheduled soon, but serious treatment won't begin until August/September. Hardly seems real right now. We are happy to stay in this little dreamworld, if only for a while.
