Welcome to my new and improved Blog.

I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

What happened in the creek!

Well it's all over.

And it was soo much fun!

It was a busy long weekend and FUN! Saturday we did alittle poking around and went to see the Canada Day fireworks (Nathan's first) at the Musuem of Civilization in Hull. They were awesone and the rain held off! Took tons of pictures but I should have brought a tripod...too much camera shake.

Sunday: Miranda's Surprise Party and Miranda was totally surprised. The fake party really threw her for a loop. The she arrives home with Tucker from the movie and I say Sheila and Denis are here for supper but come and see who else is here for supper and all her friends run out with lei's yelling surprise! She jumped and cried and the first thing out of her mouth after OMG was "there are so many of you!!" Lmao. Then she seen A few of her graduating friends. And then said to them YOUR at MY HOUSE! LMAO! She Hit T becasue he was in on it. And I broke the first Water balloon over her head and it was ON. 100 water ballons broke in 2 min flat! Then buckets and they were all soaked pretty soon. Then chatted. Then played capture the flag after supper till dark...I dressed some of them with tuban made from my weekenders shawls. LOL! they put on war paint with magic markers. LOL. Not the typical 15 to 17 yr olds.

Then Fireworks and it was over.

She got some nice gifts and some I know they mean more than the giver was intending. Matt wrote her a song and sang it by the fire to her. T wouldn't come and listen to it he was not impressed that his friend wrote his girlfriend a song. You could tell T's parents were surprised and seen that he has a crush on her. Jason gave her a cd with songs that remind him of her. SIGH....It was funny. You know, T and Mir make the perfect pair. Both have people falling all over them and both are uncomfortable with it. A few of the gifts I didn't see. But they were home made and mean something to the gang.

We had some party crashers too. One of the girls I invited invited a few others and it was great casue I know they do like Miranda! Evened up the girl/boy thing here.

Yesterday I was finding PANTS, Money bank cards, jewerly sun glasses, hats all kinds of things all over the place. LOL!

OH and

Happy 4th of July to my south of the boarder FRIENDS!

Also I will not be blogging as much during the summer. Tooo much to do and I will try to update once a week or so. BUT I'm sure I will be back here in full force once school starts up again in September. I'm sure I will have many stories from Nathan first year in school that will keep us all entertained. I'm off to pull a splinter out of his toe. He needs to wear shoes.

Have a great Summer all.

Sounds like great fun, though personally I hate surprise parties, because I never catch on and am always close to a heart attack.
It's been a great weekend for waterfights here as well. Have a great summer.

That sounds like it was the best party ever.

Funny how the kids with crushes still persue these days. Years ago if someone had a boyfriend the others stayed away (for the most part) and you only found out years later that they really liked you.

I hope we have some fun parties like that around here, will you come help set up??
