~my friends this weekend~

i am down two wisdom teeth, it was supposed to be four, but i won't complain. close to me are either cold things to numb the pain, or things that don't involve a lot of effort to eat. tylenol 3 is pretty cool, too, it's made for a couple of nice naps and some conversations i won't remember having.

thanks to renee who felt sorry enough for me to drop in and bring me a slurpee (thanks, renee!)

and even bigger thanks to elizabeth who thought she'd come over and photograph me in all my glory, drugged and in my pajamas, looking lovely, no doubt, and eating said refreshement. we settled on a photo of the popsicle. (she's doing an 'a week in the life' album)

my public service announcement today: never, ever do an image search on "wisdom teeth"

-some photos-

of last weekend at the lake. we have a super cool boss who lets us use his 'cabin' at the lake once in a while, so who are we to say no? elizabeth and ernie came out for a night with their little ones. poor gord, he was taking the kids through the field on the quad (the pollen was so bad, the air was thick with it) and had such a nasty reaction, his eyes swelled SHUT so i had to drive him to the hospital for treatment. i don't know what hurt him more... his eyes or the fact that i was driving his truck, lol. it took a couple days to get back to normal, but i guess gord has hay fever like me now. hasn't bothered me since i moved from b.c. ten years ago, but, such is life!

-happy mail-

RAK's are cool.

but i can only do half a RAK! (make sense? didn't think so!)

mine (i guess letters by janna) are for the cost of shipping only. so i guess that's a knick knack half a rak. (yes... i know... that was's way too late)

jaymie from indiana was chosen for mine. jshe was looking to order a lowercase 'j' in a font called 'little days' (italic). very cute!

-happy canada day-

happy first of july! canada is 139 years old today!

heres a little history lesson:

Many years ago, Canada belonged to England and over a period of time, different areas of our country joined together and wanted to form their own government. On July 1, 1867, The British government (under Queen Victoria) approved the British North American act which allowed Canada to become an independent country with its own government. The new nation, which remained loyal to England, was now called the Dominion of Canada. During that time, the new Dominion of Canada only contained four provinces (Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) with other provinces joining later. As of today, we have 10 provinces and 3 territories.

this time last year, i was at commonwealth stadium celebrating alberta's 100 birthday... with a rockin' FREE concert put on by many talented artists... okay, but i was only there for the BARENAKED LADIES! anyone who knows me knows how much i love bnl... i'm a die hard fan(atic). i felt pretty speshul too when ed and steve hammed it for my camera. why the treat? who cares? i left with over 100, yes, 100 pictures of those two. as i said, i am a fanatic. so here's two. need another 98?

have a wonderful canada day!!
