This weekend was so nice. On Friday night I stayed in and messed about on the internet and watched a few movies. Saturday was spent watching the Food Network from the comfort of my cool basement suite in between times of sitting out in my back yard, and soaking up some rays while reading. It was glorious!
We had the first half of our ice cream fundraiser on Saturday night and Sunday morning, and those went well. Saturday was a bit of a gong show, as not everybody who had promised to show up did show up, so we were short handed. I ended up manning a table by myself for a while, which was a bit nuts. Ah well. It was fun. People were very generous, and the hot weather certainly helped with the selling of ice cream. We’re doing it again next weekend, and I hope the weather continues to stay this hot and sunny so that the sales will go well.
Yesterday afternoon when I finally got home, I made myself a rather large lunch, as I hadn’t had time for breakfast, and parked myself outside for some more sun. I don’t think I got too much colour, but that’s okay. I’m not looking to get super dark or anything – I was just happy to be outside where it was warm and gorgeous.
I had a nice chat with my parents on Friday night, and that was really good. I hadn’t talked to them in a few weeks, which is crazy. We’d emailed, but it’s just not the same as actually talking to them. I’d really missed them, so it was so good to talk for a bit. I’ll be going up to visit them for the August long weekend, which I’m really looking forward to. It will be so nice to be up at the camp for a few days, and to just hang out there. I leave for South Africa the Sunday after that weekend, so it will be good to see them right before I go.
It’s creeping up faster and faster – we leave in 27 days! I have a few things I have to get/borrow, and I hope to have those all those things arranged within the next week or so. The less I have to do right before I go, the better. I want to be able to relax as much as I can that last weekend, and have everything packed and ready to go before the Friday.
I can’t wait!
