I start my morning with an hour long walk threw the streets surrounding my in-laws. My first day of walking I stayed on the main streets.... Montreal Rd, Carson...Den Hagg.... but how boring... so I started walking through residential streets and there was so much to look at... I could walk for hours just looking. Also, I was quite amazed that when I met other people along the sidewalks, that no body looks you in the eye, at all.. It was quite unnerving. No greetings, no glancing, no nods.... The second day, I didn't look or nod, or glance, but as I got walking I thought to myself... how fast the city thought process takes over. So.... on the third day... I purposely looked at all my passersby and said hello. How fun..... older people.... looked back and said hello....maybe remembering how things use to be when life was a bit more simple. My age people where 100% responsive.... some nodded, some answered my greeting as an afterthought and others at least looked at me. Anyone younger, which was quite a few simply looked through me or past me. Hopefully they don't think I was a lunatic, but simple someone who isn't totally terrified to say a simple HELLO.
Yesterday... we took a day trip to Renfrew with the whole gang. Two car loads.... to visit an old family friend who has a wonderfully simple home and existence. He lives with the land, and putters all day with gardens, wood, and the nature around him. A lovely way of live. It was a great day and a fun trip with my two little nieces and sister in law. We sang silly songs, place abc games and a fun memory game.
Thats it so far.... we are on stolen wireless...... so I best go for now

The curtains are hung, the crap is all out of the room and chairs moved back in. There is still lots to do, but we are done for the day. Thanks to Sandra for all your help...Gail for all your supervision, a yummy lunch and "passing of things" (that is a huge help when your up on a ladder or box and need a rag or color change)

While I was outside with terry inspecting this newest project, we both made note of the big footprint in a small unplanted flowerbed in the yard. We chuckled at the fact that Mollie took a shortcut through the bed, when Terry noticed a little oddity. I said I did too, I notice a square hole in the dirt. He said no, look a little farther left...... can you see it?

Disappointed in how little we saw of Tonks... and quite a few things they couldn't fit into the movie. We were watching for clues.... the locket and odd trinkets in Serius's house (possible cruxs) ... Creature....(who was totally fantastic) The names on the family tree.... nothing that would confirm some of our theories... If they showed it in movie # 5, you know, if they felt it important enough to show it in "Order of the Phoenix" then it must be a clue to the last book ending... but we were disappointed and confused...

The next School Lunch will be July 24 at Wheatons, but I will email next week towards the end of the week to get a feel for how many will be there. There are a few who just couldn't make it this week but will be there next time...

I love you Lynn, and I am so pleased for you. I will always be thankful that you never really repaid me for the all the irritating stuff I have done to you in the past, and actually, will continue to do, really. Cause I love ya. You are always beautiful to me.

Canada Day weekend.....
Terry & Scott headed up to Fredericton to help Stephanie and Sean move into their new, deeper in town, second floor apt. But along they way, they made a surprise visit to my cousis, Sandra's house with a little treat for their new house. Some deck chairs and pots of flowers for their VERY bare backyard deck. The "surprise visit" was the best part.
Some of the other events of the weekend were..... Upper Clements Park, Dollarama, People's Jewelers, A "Nova Scotia" tee shirt... Ratatouille (the movie), big airplanes and buying her sister some little presents to bring back with her.
