Weekend Update

Hey! I'm slacking off with the blogging aren't I? Ah well, I vowed to enjoy every minute of our short summer this year, and I'm doing it! hehe I had a fantastic weekend! I spent all day Saturday working in the yard/flowers with my brother, almost-sister in law and mother in law. Sunday we cleaned the patio because we're going to stain it next weekend, and we hadn't stained it in 3 years so the wood had turned all grey. We tried 2 kinds of deck cleaner : Thompson's and Olympic, and let me tell you, the Olympic deck cleaner is awesome! You drop a drop of the stuff on your greyed wood and it instantly returns to it's natural wood colour. (If anyone from Olympic is reading this, please contact me so that I can provide my address for all the free products :P)

Monday I was so pooped that it didn't take a lot of convincing to get me to stay home since Steph had the afternoon off for Memorial day. Well they were getting the afternoon off if they could raise 1000$ for charity with a bake sale, and they raised 1700$ go IK! So Steph brought a sugar pie from the bake sale.. and a lasagna. We split the lasagna for lunch.. that's okay. (The lasagna was delicious Kate!! Steph didn't even pick the peppers out! hehe) But then I dove mouth first into the delicious sugar pie that tasted just like my grandmother used to make. It didn't have the same consistence (Does anyone remember fudgy-textured sugar pies our grandmother used to make? I'm beginning to think that they're a myth. They're unfindable.) but it tasted just like it. I ate like 3/4 of it. And gained. four. pouds. Blech. But don't worry, I'm back on track this morning. I even exercised tonight go me! Well, that's it. I'm trying to blog as I'm eating my supper (a salad, yes at 10h15pm) and my salad is getting warm and I have this thing about eating warm salad. blech. Hope you're all doing well! RoseAnn, I'm keeping your brother and his family in my thoughts and prayers!

Yay for great weekends! I can't say I've ever had sugar pie, but it sounds yummy. And another "yay!" for your for getting right back on track, way to go! Oh, I meant to post that on your last blog with your picture, I think your hard work is starting to show.

If it makes you feel better, I stepped on the scale for a first time in a week and I'm up 3 pounds, couldn't be from all the crap I've consumed in the past 4 days now, could it??? :)

Sounds like you had a great weekend!

Right now we're counting our blessings.

I made sure to try to cut up all the extras up.. green peppers, red peppers, mushrooms, and onions. I tried to keep them small without making them disapear. The lasagna's we eat at home, all the extra's are super big.
Glad you liked it!
