Summer Quickly Coming to an End!

Well, once again I have been very busy having fun outdoors that it has been difficult getting to the computer to sit down and take some time to update the blog! Summer continues to fly by and it is hard to believe that in the very near future I will be heading back to work. Although I am looking forward to that, it will be an adjustment to get back into a routine.

Since my last post, I wen with my sister up to my Uncle Russ's for three nights. We stayed in his monster of a house on Canim Lake. That was a blast. I got some deccent Water Skiing in during that time. It was unbelievable, I actually got up my first time in the deep water on the one ski, and that is an accomplishment considering that I haven't skiied in at least four years. We went tubing with Isobel's grandchildren, as well. They treated us very well, and we had a very good visit.

Since I have been home. I have had lunch with friends Mandy and her four year old daughter Kenzie and 8 month old daughter Ava. We played at the park and Kenzie's new trampoline. I went for lunches with different friends, and one of those days included a shopping trip downtown and all the way to the Lonsdale Quay. That was a whole lot of fun!!! I attended a couple of barbeques with friends. Once of them was a surprise birthday, and we actually surprised him. It was all Sara could do to keep it a secret from her boyfriend Dave.

I went to the beach a couple of days, at White Pine Beach. I am getting quite a bit of colour on me. But, yes Oma I am using sunscreen! I even went out on a Monday night downtown dancing at the night club Plush. Now, that was fun! As, I won't be able to do that once school is back in session! Danced the night away!

I am now trying to get back into a work routine now. I am going to bed at a more deccent time, and trying to get up earlier in the morning. Thtat should help me once I am back at work. I also started Aquafit Deep Water Exercise class with my friend Tara. I love it! I have always loved swimming, and this is a workout in the water lead by an instructor. You don't get all sweaty like with a regular workout because you are in the water, so that is more enjoyable. I am hoping to continue this into my routine once I am back at work, as it is going to be more difficult to do the running club once the weather starts to change!

Summer Vacation Flies By....

Wow! It is hard to believe that August has already arrived. I am not sure where all the time has gone. But, I have been having a lot of fun since I have been feeling a lot better which is probably why I haven't updated for awhile!

I finally got to go see Devil Wears Prada! Now that is a great movie! Great message in that movie, as it is so easy to get caught up in material items.

I went to Seattle for two nights and we literally shopped until we dropped. It was a good time! I found some good bargains! My favourite purchases had to be the sketcher running shoes at the Seattle Premium Outlets by the Tualip Casino! Buy one and get the second at half price. I couldn't even buy one pair for the price of two here! They will be great for the fall, as they are dressy runners and look great with my Gaucho pants and various casual work clothes!

I have been doing a lot of scrapbooking and cardmaking. I even started my Christmas Cards. Sara and I set a record last weekend when we scrapbooked about four pages in our best friend scrapbook that we have been working on together since we both started scrapbooking. We were so pleased with ourselves because it is only ten years later, but we have almost completed our highschool graduation pages! It is a record, hard to believe, but we justify it by the fact that we have to create double the pages because we have identical pages in each of our books.

Julie and I had a great visit out at Dinno and Shirley's! Yummy dinner, and a walk at crescent beach! Gotta luv the Blueberry pie from Whitespot!

I even had to get the dust off my rollerblades, and went rollerblading at Rockypoint. Let's just say I need to get back into my cardiovascular fitness because I wasn't doing so well in that department!

It was my turn to host a movie night. I made a roasted chicken on the barbeque, it was delicious! We watched our Seattle Trip on DVD, as I made a video like the one I had made for my students!

Then Yesterday, I had a picnic with friends from Herbert Spencer. I had fun playing with the two babies, and neither one of them fussed when I held them. But, still not ready for my own yet! Then started the long weekend with a Pool Party. It has been great so far, and the activities still keep coming, as I am looking forward to my holiday with Julie up to my Uncles and Aunts house on Canam Lake. We will get to get do some water sports like we did growing up! So, it should be a good time!

Gotta Luv The Summer!
