A Summer of Balance

Havelock Farmer's Market with cucumber plant and fudge!

Well, it has been our goal to enjoy a summer of carefree abandon balanced with a few well planned adventures. So far, I believe we are achieving just that.

We have enjoyed days at home

  • reading
  • building with lego and fanta color
  • painting model horses
  • reading outside on a blanket under a tree
  • playing with stuffies (a most loved pastime)
  • reading in a tent (indoors and out)

We have also enjoyed several outings. We've been to:

  • the Riverview Park and Zoo
  • the Marmora Library
  • Havelock, Hastings and Marmora on Canada Day (were nearly carried away by the mosquitoes at the fireworks display at the Marmora Mine!)
  • strawberry and rasberry picking at VanderPloeg's Berry Farm
  • Grammy L and Grampy R's house (she slept over twice when both mama and papa had to work)
  • a new friend's house for a 4 hour play date (mama has a new friend now too !)
  • the River for swimming (and to visit Grandma A)
  • the Marmora and Havelock Farmer's market

And now my girl is off to spend two whole weeks with Grandma S and Grandpa N. She went on Saturday and the house has been eerily quiet. The cat is pacing around meowing at me. I spent the day yesterday leisurely cleaning the house. Now this morning I'm off to work.
