Busy Weekend Update

It's Sunday evening and it seems like we have been quite active over the last few days. Eilish and Michele chilled out Friday....played scrabble all day.

Saturday the day started with another tomato batch boil down. We will have lots this winter. A trip was then made to Sams Club, a warehouse type food store, to get some supplies for a BBQ that evening. Lynne invited her entire research group for the evening. A great time was had by all. Thanks to our neighbours, the Krauses, since we borrowed their grill we were able to cook enough food for everybody.

We seemed to spend all day Sunday assembling beds and furniture from Ikea. It's always a good mental and physical workout. Lynne, Eilish and Anja then took a trip to TJ Max, a discount designer store, while I finished off some weekend chores (and some light beer brewing duty).

Colleagues of Lynne, Terri and Rodo, visited Sunday afternoon to see us all. They brought their dog Murphy. He and Daisy who are the same age get on very well together (a great picture of Murphy taken in the spring after a wet afternoons play) . Monica was able to see Anja for the first time in quite a while.

Eilish was then kind enough to babysit Sunday evening while Lynne and I visited with friends for dinner.... a busy weekend all round.

More updates during the week.
