Friday Link Ups

Hey everyone. In case you haven't noticed, I haven't really been on the Blogging band wagon. There are many reasons, some of what I won't post here, but some of them are.....being too busy (work, reading magazines, you know, the important stuff..lol, errands, last wknd at the ranch), too hot, no internet for almost two days (gasp!), and to be honest, just not really into blogging. But I know I get that way, and in/after a few days, I get back on it again. I should be in bed, as I work a 12 hour day tomorrow (it's my work wknd...I joke that I always have long wknds...I either work them, or I have them..all three days...off.). The laptop is burning my legs, and making me (and the room) twice as hot as it normally is...but I will do a short Friday link up post.

Here are some things that I have been loving (and doing) the last week or so...

1. Canada Day

I didn't do a heck of a lot for/on CD. Vienna came with our aunt and uncle, and we all ate lunch together, then V, A and I went to the Park to take in some of the festivities. We got some Bannok, drank some lemonade, and relaxed, and walked around, then we just came home. We were too tired to even go and check out the fireworks.

2. Pita Chips.

Vienna brought some, and let me tell you, they are awesome!

Parmesan and Garlic, and Cinnamon. So good.

3. Mango Iced Tea (and Slurpee's, and Coolers)

I noticed that Starbucks had a new iced tea/lemonade, so naturally, I had to try it. I didn't like it the first time (well, I did, but it was just too sweet), so the next time, I ordered it half sweet. Yum. Much better. And yes, I have been having too many slurpees, and I also being indulging in the odd cooler. Yes, I know, so bad, but SO good!!

4. Fan/A.C/ My parents' pool/The River

Seriously, y'all. I don't know on how I would survive without it. I am loving going to work right now, solely because we have air conditioning. And the fans. We have two fans in our house. We may have to get another one. As I said, I went out there last wknd (more on that in another post), and I spent a bunch of time in the pool. I have yet to go have a "swim and sun" (an odd term I coined for myself a few years back...lol) at the beach this summer...other than at Kal Beach...but I hope to do it on Tuesday...or maybe next wk...who knows...I am working lots..or busy, so am not sure when (or if!) I will get to it this summer.

5. Summer TV

Y&R, Amazing Race Canada, and Duck Dynasty are awesome,, and back on for the summer, respectively. Love them all. I also may get into The Astronaut's Wives' Club. I saw the first episode on TV last night while at work, and it looked good, so I got Anker to record it. I also just saw a couple of shows on CBC that look great as well.

5.1. Our Civil Servants/City Workers/Constructions Workers

During a flash flood (again, more about that in another post), our police and Firefighters came out in FULL force! They were quick to come on to the scene, and were AWESOME at directing traffic. We have had MANY forest fires, but more so in Northern SK. I don't know the exact number that are burning in BC right now (let alone all of Canada), but there are a lot. There are a lot of fire fighters, both on the ground and in the air that are fighting the fires 24/7. I also just read that someone has lost their life while fighting a fire. We are also experiencing A LOT of construction in Kamloops right now, and the works and flaggers are doing an AWESOME job, especially in this heat! Anyway...I just want to take the time to thank EVERYONE who does their job well! You all rock!


Told you I'd be short!!! Have a great wknd!! Think of me while you're having fun with your families!!!

The one time we took our kids to Canada just happened to be over Canada Day. We got the best souvenirs for extra cheap, since we bucked the tourist areas and went for,local festivities. We then crossed the border to celebrate 4th here in the US. A marvelous week of celebration. :)
I'm glad you have several ways to stay cool. We haven't needed them, seeing as we are in the midst of an unusually cool summer. We haven't been swimming one time!
