What a weekend! I love long weekends! This one was especially long being that I had Thursday AND Friday off! This is very rare for us to be off two days in a row during our busy season. But now I feel energized and ready for hard work again.
Here is your dare this week:
Dare # 39
Give yourself a hair treatment. Summer time can be a very bad time of your for your locks. Pool water, sun, and every day maintenance can dry out your hair. Give it a little pampering sometime this week.
I have had a really great, relaxing but still accomplished weekend.
Wednesday night was the party in Quyon for Canada day. The parade, fireworks and party were great! I had a blast dancing and chatting with friends.
Thursday morning my head was hurting a little from the night before but I just slept in later than usual to cure it. After I finally got out of bed I got ready because myself and 6 girl friends were going to see ECLIPSE! I was a little worried that we would be fighting a crowd on Canada day since everyone was off but it was great! We pretty much had the whole theatre to ourselves. If you are a twilight fan and haven't seen the movie yet, GO! Best one out of the three. My thoughts have been on the Jacob since.....ahhh.....
Friday morning Ryan and I spend time with his mom Bev (Hi Bev!). We went strawberry picking which was a first for me! We had a little contest on who could find the biggest strawberry and I was happy that Bev beat Ryan's winning berry right at the last second! I think we are going to make strawberry picking a yearly tradition! That evening Ryan and I made two go's of strawberry jam. They looked yummy and I can't wait to taste our first jar!
Saturday morning Ryan had to work and so I decided to go along with him to get some shopping in the city done. I found all the bar wear (glasses, pitches, beer mugs, etc) and even got some craft supplies for my next craft that I am working on. We came home, washed all our new stuff and made some pizza for supper. After supper Ryan went to grab the mule (4 wheeler kind of thing) and we went to the river to watch the sun set. It was like out of a movie!
Sunday was a relaxing day for me. Ryan again had to go into work so I puttered around the house cleaning, straghtening up and watching t.v. Ryan came home and we spent the rest of the day by the pool working on our tans. Friends of ours, Jason and Mandy, stopped in with their baby girl Abby. It was great to catch up.
This is going to be a busy week, I am sure of that. Today the cupboard people are coming to install the bar downstairs. The room is finally coming together. Now we just have to wait on couches and we can enjoy the space again.
Wednesday I have a hair appointment that I am very nervous for. I have finally decided to chop off my hair to donate. Even as I am writing this I am hyperventilating a little bit. Never, EVER have I had short hair. My mother has instilled a fear of the hair dresser in me. I am cutting off 9-12 inches of length. I'm looking forward to over coming this fear and freeing myself of this heavy mop! Wish me luck! :-)
I hope you all have had a great weekend! I hope you have a wonderful week as well!
