Time for summer!

My apologizes folks! I'm being told to update my blog from a few of my friends! So I'll update even though there isn't much to report on my sorry behalf.

It's been a strange but exciting summer. From dashing to work, to the campsite, keeping my plants watered, helping my mom out here and there, keeping Cody happy when boredom strikes, chopping at the renos when I can... all in a days work. But now that summer is closing to an end, it's time to set an important priority. Time to play with my boy.

We've just changed our campsite to a more remote one beside water, so I'm excited to get back there and enjoy my riverside view! Cody is near more boy neighbours close to his age so it's been a great move for both of us.

We recently spent a week at the site to take advantage of a fabulous Kid's Club at Harrison Gospel. It was a great time for Cody and the week went really well, but I'll admit, the day we didn't have to be anywhere by that certain time, we both slept in till 10:00! I can't do that at home so that also tells me we just need to chill for abit.

But when I come home, I switch gears. Then I'm in reno land and don't want to camp. I want to gitter done! But so many things have been pulling me away from getting anything really done, hence, just making the decision to let something go. Cody having no daycare avail the last 2 weeks of Aug was a major cue to make the change too. So my partly tiled bathroom floor will wait! And why not.. it matches my plywood floors. A complete ensemble if you will...

Vic has been an absolute trooper lately coming to do bits and pieces as time allows. Thanks Vic! You have an open invite to come whenever you desire, as I know that's your form of leisure. Fact is, I like having you around overseeing us, not for the work per say. It's just a nice feeling. You're welcome any time! I'll leave that one up to you.

So, back at it. I'm going to wrap up my work for this weekend and head up to the campground for a couple nights with Cody. We'll stop at Agassiz's SuperValue for our favorite chocolate chunk brownies and git right up there and go play in the sun!

Happy summer folks! I'll be back hacking away at the house and posting about it daily before you know it!
