oh, canada (I miss you so)

Happy Canada Day!

We're flying the flag here today in Dullsville and will be celebrating later by throwing some stuff on the grill. There may be pictures. Right now, this one will have to suffice.





The kids had their last day of school a week ago and we've been very busy sleeping in and generally just lazing about and enjoying the summer. I have tons (tons!) of blog posts lined up. Unfortunately it's just too humid too sit inside and type. This sort of weather is not very kind to the frizzy-haired among us. It's presently 25°C outside and the clouds are threatening to split open at any moment. Platzregen they call it here. One minute you're dry, the next you're soaking wet. Oh well, at least we won't need to water.

You have a good day too, eh, and while you're at it, go check out Ian's great Canada Day post.

You have a great Canada, or what's left of it. Hope the grilling will sooth the longing inside a bit! BTW, in 3 1/2 weeks from now we'll be in Canada to see the family and friends. For now still a round trip. Just a few more years...

Happy Canada Day! Know exactly how you feel. And if it's any comfort, it's not better for the straight haired. No matter how much guck and hairspray I put in there, it get's all sticky and itchy AND FLAT. YUCK! Ever see a soaken cat??

Happy Canada day! I didn't get to celebrate becase on the ship they are lumping it in with the 4th of July, grr. BBQ sounds nice and the perfect way to celebrate!

Happy (belated) Canada Day. I wish it was that warm here. I know where you came from they are having beautiful weather but here in southern Ontario it feels like fall. Summer is giving us a pass this year, looks like...ciao
