Happy Canada Day!! Yes, it's that time again - hope everyone's heading to 'the lake' for a long weekend full of BBQ's, lazing on the beach, campfires and hot hot hot July weather! I will try not to depress you (or myself) by talking about waking up this morning to rain and much coldness here in Belfast. I think my parents took all the sunshine with them back to Sask-land. Ah well . . . On the plus side there's a Canadian flag on a house at the end of our street, but that is for other political reasons that, as far as I can tell, don't have much at all to do with Canada!
All whining aside, I have to admit that we are enjoying a nice and chilled out weekend. Yesterday we did a bit of shopping, went for a run (yes, I am going to update you on our fledgling running progress as a means of self-motivation) and went for a nice dinner at Stu's parents. This morning (to celebrate Canada in our own way) we've been out for breaky at our local diner-esque spot and now it's time to read the newspaper while listening to some (Canadian!) Arcade Fire. Somebody be sure to paint a maple leaf on their face for me . . .
