Summer is here

Hello hello,

Today is the start of the Comments for a Cure campaign! Please leave a comment today, tomorrow, or Wednesday on my good friend Glitterati's blog to help her raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. She will donate a dollar for every comment made on these days, up to $50. Plus, at the end of it all, she'll do a draw for a cool t-shirt from our Comments for a Cure Caf├ęPress Store. So comment it up and tell your friends!

On to regular programming:
Well the weekend was super nice and we had a doozy of a thunderstorm yesterday. Luckily my neighbourhood is not prone to flooding.

Saturday - My Dad got in to the city at 7:30am and we planted a load of geraniums, whisked off to WI where I was down .4. The loss was totally due to turning the flower beds over on Friday night and then the planting of Saturday morning. Dad went home around noon, I puttered around the house. Later on H made me the most fabulous birthday dinner ever. We had spaghetti squash puttanesca, turkey meatloaf, garlic toast made with this Swiss Farmer bread from Safeway. We also had this awesome hummous by Tribe - the mediterranean spices one.

Sunday - My actual birthday, left my house at 8:15am to head over to the zoo for brunch with A. The Calgary Zoo puts on a nice brunch I must say. Walked around for 2.5hrs looking at sleeping animals - it was mighty hot so I don't blame them. Did a little shopping at Walmart and found 2 work tops, heading back tonight to get a third that I couldn't decide on.

Everytime I go to the zoo the animals are either sleeping or eating. I did miss not having the opportunity to sleep in but alas that can happen later. I totally crashed on the couch at 5pm. I think I got too much sun, I was coated in sunscreen and had a hat but I'm just not crazy about heat - it was 32 degrees.

I do have super renewed motivation though and I'm actually looking forward to this week. H is running in the Underwear Affair to raise money for all cancers below the waist on Saturday, I will be there with bells on to support her.

Plan your weeks everyday, let's all see success at the next WI!

What a lovely-sounding birthday dinner! Roommie is a fan of the spaghetti squash, and with a puttanesca sauce I think I'd have to try it.

Thank you SO much for mentioning the fundraiser!! You rock!
