Weekend Recap

My weekend sort of started on Thursday night when I got to go bowling with people from my office.  This was an official "work event".  We have done bowling nights before but I must say this was one of the best ones we've ever had, it may or may not have had something to do that we all had a drink or two, which is not always the case.  I did not do as well as I would have liked, but it was a great night.

On Friday night, I had a pretty easy night.  Dave went to the movies (Mad Max), and I stayed home to watch the Bachelorette.  I am definitely Team Kaitlyn so I'm so happy she was picked.  Can't wait to see the rest of the season!

On Saturday, we got up and headed to swimming lessons on our bikes.  The way our house is situated, it is necessary to go up a hill to get anywhere, so swimming lessons was no exception.  We made it up the hill but it was tough especially since I had only been up for less than 30 minutes and hadn't even had a sip of coffee yet!   After swimming we visited our new local farmer's market at the Junction.  We enjoyed a few yummy treats and even saw our friends there.  The hill notwithstanding, I am looking forward to making a bike ride to the market a regular part of our summer.

Peameal bacon sandwich with fresh tomato and kale, very tasty!

We pickup some cured meats and pretzels here.

After we got home we took a little rest and then went to Plant World to see what we could find for our garden.  I am not a gardener, I can barely keep a house plant alive.  If someone made me a gardening plan I could put it together, and maybe keep it alive throughout the summer (with an automatic watering system), but I have hard time coming up with good ideas for the garden.  I don't really know what looks good, what works for a sunny or shady area, etc. I know that we won't be able to make a perfect garden this first year, but we'll see how it goes. 

Our haul

We did a bit of work around the garden and I enjoyed this Guinness in celebration of Ireland's vote in favour of same sex marriage.

In the evening we headed down the block for a BBQ with some neighbours.  We knew the hosts and one other couple but we got to meet a couple of other families, and they have little girls who will be in E's class in the fall.  It was great to meet more neighbours.  We have another neighbour BBQ this weekend that we are looking forward to. 

On Sunday we went to church.  It was Pentecost Sunday and several teenagers were being confirmed as members of the church.  It brought back memories of my confirmation classes when I was in high school.  It was really special to see each of the families up there with the kids.  

After church we walked up the street to find something for lunch and to get groceries.  We also found some ice cream!

We worked on the garden for the rest of the afternoon.  We were only able to get the back done.  Here  is sneak peak. I'll be sharing the whole thing on a Show and Tell Tuesday in June. 

Someone got a little dirty helping us.  It was straight up to the shower when we came inside.

Obviously we were pretty tired at the end of the evening, so we capped our night off with some Game of Thrones.
