Weekend relaxation and fun!

This weekend was very warm, but we had a good time anyways, especially in the shade and wherever there was an air conditioner!

Saturday morning we bopped around the Saturday Market and bought fresh berries and produce. Mmm, raspberries, blackberries, Marionberries, Blueberries, Strawberries...oh my gosh you name it we bought it. Made for some yummy strawberry shortcake with ice cream and whipped cream :)

Afterwards we went to our favorite restaurant The Pantry where I got my usual: Chicken Melt sandwich with Gouda cheese, cranberries, lettuce, and tomato with salad and some tasty Kettle Chips. All that was missing was a glass of wine :) We mention that to them all the time and they are now considering selling wine, or at least will let us bring our own wine for a small corking fee.

The rest of the day we drove around from one air conditioned store to another. Bought an air conditioner for our bedroom at Home Depot, a new printer, and some new shorts for my son. We got ice cream at Baskin Robbins...I LOVE Tea of Tranquility which is chai ice cream with gingersnap cookies...if you haven't tried's to die for!!!!! Then hubby did up nice steaks on the BBQ.

Sunday was even hotter, but we stayed cool in the theater and watched CARS. What a fun movie! Loved the credits at the end :) Hubby BBQ'd Wild Chinook Salmon on a cedar plank...delicious. Yes, we eat good, what can I say. Good food, nice wine, great just doesn't get any better than that :)

Today is back to work. Promos, writing, editing, and working on my July newsletter.

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

The weekends are always great, aren't they? Good to hear from you again too... and CARS was a lovely movie. I can't wait to see it again when it's released on DVD! Those Pixar guys sure know what they're doing huh?

I would appreciate some of your summer heat. It's getting very cold down here in Oz! :/

I can't believe how much I was cracking up in the movie :) I have a soft spot for Mater (as in Tomater without the to) lol. He was too cute.

I don't think Pixar can do anything wrong...and you get treated to a little mini show and then the hilarious credits.

Okay, I'm directing a mirror at the sun and it's headed your way. Much too warm for me!!!

Hope all is well with you sweetie!!!

Thanks! I'm busy working on another draft at the moment... hoping to get it done by the end of the week. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for the sun too! And that Pixar short was hilarious! I love it. Mater was cute, but my personal favourite was Fillmore. What a hippie.

It's cool to read your posts again too.
