On Friday my staff and I helped to celebrate Todd's 21st birthday with his
parents and friends at a pub not too far from our school. You see we all
really love our young man, and if that means we have to
go out, eat munchies and drink a beer to
celebrate his big day then that is just a
sacrifice we have to make!
On Saturday Michael and I went to help my niece and nephew clean up
their dad's house to get it ready for sale. That was the last
time I saw the sun. Oh Sun - where have you gone - I miss you so!
We had a great time and it's a real joy seeing my niece and nephew
work together, as the wonderful adults they have become,
toward a common goal.
Saturday night we went to Jambalaya for dinner and another nephew joined
us. Don't they make me look little? I need to have them around all

yes, that is what it's really called! Doesn't it look

system that is stalled over our city. It's starting to lift now though
so I'm off to cycle a little further on my bike ride to PEI.
I missed a couple of days due to general busyness and
tiredness so will try to get back in the groove this
week. I'm afraid to get on the scales to find
out how much damage I inflicted on my hips
after such a self-indulgent weekend but
I will leave you with words of wisdom from my nephew:
"Life is short, enjoy every moment!"
