It was a long weekend here in Quebec where we celebrated St. Jean Baptiste day or as the sovereignists prefer to call it Fete Nationale (National Holiday )
As per usual this summer the weather was horrible with torrential rains and storms . We were able to salvage one day , yesterday , which was hot , humid and SUNNY . Perfect pool weather . Mike and I took advantage of the nice weather and went for an early morning bike ride and then just chilled with some cool drinks and enjoyed the backyard . Later on Max & Stef dropped by with Mason for a BBQ . Mason was able to take his first dip in the pool , a little chilly (76 degrees) but refreshing . Casey and Chantal had been invited to some friends for the celebrations. We were able to get in the BBQing but not long after dinner the heavens opened up again . No need to water the lawn so far this year .
Thanks to the quiet and rainy days I was able to finish Stella's socks and cast on another pair for Shirley's grand daughter Emma .
Today , I'm catching up on the chores after a lazy weekend . No biking today , my behind needs a day off . It's too hot and muggy today anyway , and guess what , more late afternoon storms in the forecast . The plan for the rest of the day is sock knitting and swimming . Oh and enjoying a little of this ...
fresh Quebec strawberries and Saskatoon berries from our backyard bush . You have no idea how hard I have to fight off the robins to get a handful of berries . I'm happy as long as they let me get a few ;-) .
Have a good day !
