Weekend Getaway.

Friday we will be heading to Kingston, Ontario for a little getaway. We will be going to Boldt Castle and a boat cruise. Should be fun and runs for 5 hours.
I am looking forward to going and have seen the castle before from a distance before but never been on the island. It will take up most of our day Saturday from 10am-3pm so hopefully the girls will enjoy it. I might see if there is anything else we can do but that is something we can wing. The boat tour launches from Gananoque so we need to get up early and get to the harbour early. We also need passports since the island is on the American side of the waterway. We will see how it goes. I'm looking for a nice dinner after and will do some looking around but may end up cheaping out with pizza and wings!!

I'm back!!

It has been a few months since I have been a blogging because of work and the summer. Wanting to spend more time outside and less inside has pulled me from the computer. Our garden has grown so much bigger than I would have imagined. The girls are really enjoying soccer and Hailey has taken to it faster than Zoey. Zoey is a great player and is more balanced than Hailey. Hailey is all about scoring and Zoey tries to play defence and offense.

We are planning a vacation to Kingston in August to go to Boldt castle and maybe Fort Henry. Then off to the cottage in Dummer township. Our big vacation is hopefully going to be down south in Cuba, Mexico or anywhere that is all inclusive and lots of booze!!! Lots of projects around the house that need to get done and with this massive heat wave and humidity, it is going to be tough. I have to dig down and patch a crack in the foundation that weeps in heavy rain but is okay when it rains less. I also have to re-caulk around our bay windows in the back of the house. We had the driveway sealed for $100 which was a great deal. They also fixed the cracks before spraying.

Well it is late and right now as I look at the clock it is 1:46am. I have to head home from work in about 10 minutes and should roll in around 2:30am. Then settle down and head to bed by 3:00am if I am lucky. Might have to have some rye and coke for a night cap!!

Anyway, I will update a little sooner then months. Tonight I am hoping to make curry chicken with peas and rice. A friend at work gave me a recipe to try. He gave me the very basic items needed but won't give me his exact measurements. His Jamaican curry is good because i have tried it before. I may not make it but I plan on it. I will see what Nicole feels like.
