Happy Canada Day!

Okay so I’m a couple of days late.  I hope you enjoyed your Canada Day weekend as much as we did.  In fact, it’s been a great few weeks here. 

We started with high school graduation for our youngest.  Does it make me feel old?  Not a chance!  After all, I am only 29 again.  Her brother surprised her by renting a car and driving over from Waterloo where he’s doing a co-op work session.  Happy girl, but wow, incredibly nervous.  Happy parents.  Happy brother.

A few months ago we decided to make some changes to our back deck.  The poor thing has been slowly falling apart no matter how many years in a row the stain has been renewed.  Rot has set it and replacement is needed.  The time since was spent planning the layout, picking the materials to use, changing the plan, starting the teardown and changing the plan again. 

The last modification was a pleasant surprise.  Yeah!  Turns out the framing is still in good condition.  We don’t have to start from the beginning!  Pictures to come soon.

I am looking forward to Kempenfest, August 4 – 6, 2012, in Barrie on the waterfront.  Follow this link to get all the details:  http://www.kempenfest.com

Until then, some pretty things to keep the excitement up:
