Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Happy Victoria Day

Today is a statutory holiday in Canada celebrating the birthday of Queen Victoria, which made yesterday feel like Saturday. Hence the lack of post…

This past week was a good week. I got in 5 workouts and am feeling myself. My oldest returned from Paris on Thursday and she has a great time. Other than her credit card being frozen because my girl decided to buy a pair of boots from Louis Vuitton for a ridiculous amount of money. So my brilliant child returned the shoes hoping that would take the hold off her card. It didn’t. So Tuesday I get a What’s up message from her advising me of the situation. After much back and forth, she was able to get in contact with her bank and get the card back in service.

I managed to have dinner with a friend I do not see nearly enough. We made tentative plans to go to St Jacob’s Market and do a waterfalls tour of Hamilton this summer. We both commented on how much we used to do when the kids were smaller and now we just let the 7 warm days of summer get away from us. Since we are both on a budget, exploring our local treasures is the way to go.

I’m excited to have rough summer plans. Along with hanging out with my friend, I am also planning a trip to Ottawa to visit with my cousin. We are going to do an “ice cream tour”. She found an article that lists the best 18 places to have ice cream in Ottawa.

And maybe this year, I can finally get to do the Whirlpool Jet boat ride down the Niagara Gorge with my kids. This has been on the to do list for far too long. This I hope will be an in the week event but with the way my oldest is working, probably not.

I think this summer is going to be a good one.
