It's a holiday Monday here in Ontario and I've been having a great weekend! Lots of friends, food, fun, and activities - it is what summer is made for.

The weather has been fabulous - really hot and sunny. I started the weekend catching up with my favourite Wizard Detective, Harry Dresden. I'm about half way through and enjoying it so far.


On breaks from reading on Saturday I baked some gingerbread cookies. Always nice to have treats around on a long weekend.


Yesterday my parents came up and we went on a short visit to the beach and walked around the Elmvale Sales Barn looking for deals.


We picked up lunch at Perky's Fish and Fries, which never disappoints. I got the haddock and chips, Mom got a burger and onion rings. MMMMmmmmm....



After Mom and Dad left, my sisters in law came over on their way to the beach, dropping off garden beans and romaine. The. Best.


Adding to our fun filled day, we hosted gaming night and played a little HarnMaster style RPG and enjoyed some treats.


I made caramel corn which was a big hit.


Our friend Bryan brought some treats to share that he brought back from a trip to Ohio. I don't think you can get this stuff here, so it was neat to try.




The remainder of the weekend will be spent reading and relaxing and probably eating a lot of garden beans. Perfect!

  2. That's a weekend well spent. I think you're right- I haven't seen vanilla coke here in several years.

    1. Thanks! Ya, I know there used to be vanilla coke but they must have stopped selling it. It was neat that my friend brought some back from the U.S.
