Canada Day!


Happy Canada Day!
There were all sorts of celebrations going on today ~ but I stayed up so late because of the heat last night, I slept in today! By the time I got up (nope, not telling when), most of the activities were over. That's OK with me, because I was quite happy to be at home. My middle son and his girlfriend came for dinner... I bbq'd a whole salmon, and served it with new potatoes, corn on the cob, carrots, roast sweet potatoes, a caesar salad and a baquette. For desert, we sliced up a fresh is was so delicious.

This particular son put in an underground sprinkler system here in 1994. Some of the sprinkler heads need replaced again, and I need a drip system set up in the "rose garden" so he gave me a list of items I will get tomorrow. He also went up a big hemlock tree and cut off a broken branch for me. Hopefully he'll be able to come back before long and make sure I've got the sprinkler system set up properly!

It was a gorgeous day weather wise, with a bit of a sea breeze which was very welcome!


  1. Oh my word, what a scrumptious meal! You've got my mouth watering again. Happy Canada Day to you Glo, and all your fellow Canadians.

  2. Sounds like you had a good, and relaxing, day and a delicious meal.
    I love pineapple, which was the only fruit my mum couldn't eat. xx

  3. Hi BH/Roomie :) It was a tasty meal, indeed, and thanks for the Happy Canada Day wishes...your big weekend is coming up...Happy July 4th!

    Flighty ~ We enjoyed our meal, especially since it was eaten on the deck. I was going to take some photos, but when a couple of sons are around, there's too much eating going on! The fresh pineapple was so juicy and succulent ~ much better than any canned variety! We ate the whole thing! Did eating pineapple affect your mum's digestive system?
