I am on day three of my three day weekend. The weather has been awesome. From the looks of the forecast, this may be the last of summer.
On Friday, I took the dogs down to the lake. A dog that Twix met here was there, so she met Blondie and Hera this time, and the four of them had a ton of fun and my three were exhausted. Twix is quite the swimmer, loves it more than her sisters. Oddly, Blondie isn’t a swimmer, but she’s never really had the opportunity. Back in Ontario when she was a puppy, I didn’t take her to Lake Ontario and when we moved to Alberta, although she’s had plenty of opportunities to swim, it’s mostly been in the Bow River and it’s got quite the current. Anyway, she goes in up to her chest and that’s about it. Perhaps I’ll go in with her and see if I can get her swimming.
I ended Friday at The Pie Man in Blairmore. Excellent food, best fish and chips I’ve ever had. It was a good day.
Yesterday, I made a trip into Lethbridge to pick up some supplies for The Pie Man, took the dogs along for the ride. On the way back, I stopped and looked at a Jeep Wrangler, I know I will get back into one some day. It was a 2 door, like my original Jeep, all of the power options and a navigation system as well.
A nap was in order for the afternoon, ended up being three hours long. Took it easy Saturday night. Watched Kansas City attempt a perfect game, just caught the ninth inning, unfortunately for the pitcher, he gave up a walk in the 9th to end the perfect bid and then a single to end the no hitter. It’s a very rare event, indeed.
Today has started pretty early, although 5am seems to be the new norm for me waking up. The dogs are fed and have been out. I’m going organize the last few things in the house today. I think the dogs and I will also return to the lake later this afternoon. The high is supposed to be 21 and we might not see those temps again this year.
Back to work tomorrow and it’s a 5 day work week. I’ll find a way to survive. I hope you had a good weekend as well.
