My hubby and I had a sudden flurry of invites for events over the next two weeks. I'm actually a bit worried because we have something happening almost every day now for the next week. In addition to a bridal shower and a surprise 60th birthday celebration (that we chose over a wedding that same day) coming up, we are planning a short road trip in July to Winnipeg, Manitoba for the wedding of a dear friend.
We've decided to drive (12 hours in total) rather than fly but we can take our time. Ray will do most of the driving (he loves it) and we'll get there over 2 days instead of trying to cram it all into one day. When we leave on the Sunday, we're going to make a stop to visit a cousin of his who keeps bees, to get some honey and beeswax candles, and then we're going to stop in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan for the night at the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa. We'll "take the waters" there in the indoor/outdoor mineral pool and then retire to our jacuzzi room (also piped into the mineral water) for a relaxing evening. After a good breakfast in the morning, we finish our journey to home.
In and amongst all of this are other invites for BBQ's, and baby showers, plus we're going to our church's Family Camp this year, which takes place over the Father Day weekend. We've rented a cabin and I'm quite looking forward to relaxing there and doing a whole lot of nothing! I even have an outdoor portable rocking chair!
Whew...I just read that all over and I think I need a nap!!!
