Summer has got a good head start, the kids are out of school, my morning drive to work is pleasant without the normal traffic...holiday time for a lot of people. Yet I was in the mall Thursday night and they've got the school supplies on display & all the summer stuff is on clearance....a reminder that summer is short - so ENJOY.

Yesterday was also the beginning of the summer office hours - we close at 3:30pm on Fridays now till the 1st Friday of September. But...I worked until 6:30...it's called being buried and having a week to clean up your desk before you go for holiday. Not thrilled about working extra unpaid hours. :-( Are holidays really worth it? I wonder. It's busy as work, plus for all of July we have someone off, so you're short handed as well plus it's busy at home.

After I got home...skipped the gym cause it was too late by that time...we went for supper at Turtle Jacks. They have amazing Bruschetta. We shared the appetizer and I had a lovely Greek Salad for supper. It was delicious and the staff there are great.

Then I dragged Mike to Indigo...I've been looking for a book by Dr. Wanye Dyer which they didn't have. I bought another of his books instead: You'll See It When you Believe It - The Way to Your Personal Transformation.

I want to be Transformed. I'm really not liking "me". Which a friend told me is sad. I just wish I was different. I wish I didn't worry so much, that I was braver, stronger, oh yeah...and perfect. I know I know...not possible...so I wish I could let the Perfect thing go. I have a library of SELF HELP on my book shelf. You'd think I'd have it all down by now...but it seems the more I read, the more confused I become.

It looks lovely outside...so I'd better get my butt in gear and get out there.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Canada Day Weekend and I got the Blues...

I don't know what is wrong with me. Been feeling a particular indigo shade lately and just can't seem to shake it. Poke a stick at your pain and it makes it worse. Sometimes leaving it alone and you can live with it. Okay...next topic...

This is Canada Day weekend! WOOHOO. Except that it didn't turn out that way. The holiday this year fell on a Thursday...so it was work MTW and off Th, back in F. Weird but got lots of cleaning and laundry done on the holiday. My God I have to GET A LIFE!

After a BBQ supper for two...we went for a drive into the city and stopped in at It's Your Festival in Gage Park. We walked around and checked out the arts and crafts. I really liked some of the garden decorations. There was a cat birdhouse I really liked. Didn't buy, just admired.

Yesterday after a very frustrating day...I baked some Banana Cupcakes. They kinda taste like banana bread but much less dense.

I used this recipe and instead of buttermilk (which I didn't have) I used sour cream:

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Canada Day Weekend and to our American Friends - Happy 4th of July!
