Notice the "u" in the word. Strange, eh? Despite currently being in a border city and a nine hour drive away from Canada's capital, I somehow feel even more Canadian when I am at home in Sault Ste. Marie. Kim and I made the drive on Saturday to surprise my mom. Yesterday, we went to my camp/cottage for the day and night. The weather did not quite cooperate, but we had a great time. In fact, the water (at 65F) was warmer than the air (63F)... that made for a refreshing swim!
Anyway, Kim and I will be in the Sault until about Saturday and then we'll make the drive back to Ottawa. It should be a good time here.
Also, I should be able to contribute here a little more often now... my most recent contract at Passport Canada finished and I am now unemployed. It's not a great situation, but I have applied for employment insurance, for which I am eligible. It should provide me with a bit of income until I can find another position. We shall see! Obviously, the good news is that I will now be closer to a computer and be able to follow along with the countdown as we move throughout September and close-in on the debut of the Blossoms thread!
I think that's it for now. Have a great Monday, everyone. I hope you're enjoying the last of the long weekend!
Glad you had a good time even though the weather didn't cooperate.
It is cool here in mid-Michigan! It was perfect temperatures for canning - I now have pints of ketchup cooling on the counter as well as the leftovers in a bowl in the fridge. Took a lot longer to make than the recipe said - hours longer! Tired now, but at least there is leftover chicken to eat. Was going to do more canning tomorrow, but something came up and I had to change my plans.
Glad it's cooled down up there!!! The colder air should arrive here overnight.

I have fallen behind with posts over the weekend, sorry if I missed anything. The weekend was good. My toddler had his first haircut He looks so grown up without his dark curls....it kind of broke my heart a little but it needed doing...I guess.
My eldest returns to school on Wednesday. He will be moving into year two so a new beginning for him. I hope he won't be tearful about going in and settles back into school routine.
It is sweet september atlast. Before we know it , we will be entering October and I can hardly contain my excitement. October brings many exciting events includng my baby's 2nd birthday!
Enjoy your Labour day celebrations today and have a great start to the week!
That is such a fun step, the first haircut. I remember how excited we were to bring our boys for their first. Welcome to September!!!
