    Yes I am very proud to be Canadian! We will be tossing sticks for the mutts and swimming this long weekend! You have a great one too!

  2. Love the old photographs, Sarah. Thanks for putting them together for us.
    How blessed we are to be Canadians!

    It’s a quiet weekend for me. Looking forward to a couple of invitations out – to lunch Saturday and dinner Sunday. It’s definitely a patio type of weekend! This kitchen may be closed!

    You might be forced to have some brown pop on the dock!

    Stay cool and have a fabulous weekend!
