Hello, it’s me. Summer of 2015 Edition.

This post is brought to you by sheer determination to get something, anything, written on this here blog before summer is over. OK, I know that technically speaking, there are still a few weeks of summer left. But who among us is that technical? We all “know” that Labour Day Weekend and the start of school (kindergarten to high school) is REALLY the end of summer.


Since the last post in early May, I have lived through a kitchen/bath/laundry/roof renovation

New kitchen.

and solar panel installation, helped empty out my late father-in-law’s house to prep it for sale, helped arrange a wedding in my building for my lovely sister and new sister-in-law,

Typical family gathering. Inevitable descent into silliness. At Carol and Cathy’s wedding.

and completed my second-to-last MBA course. Oh yeah, and I completed another half-marathon race,

Niagara Fall’s Women’s Half Marathon. Just before starting out.

and took in a few rock concerts.

Rush at the Air Canada Centre.
Cheap Trick and Peter Frampton at the Molson Canadian Amphitheater.
Jane’s Addiction. BIG Music Fest, Kitchener.

This took me to the end of July-ish.  I decided August was to be dedicated to more relaxing pursuits…such as spending time at various beaches and kayaking on the river a few steps from my building. This plan needed a kayak in order to actually happen:

I christen thee Pink Floyd.

I was also able to fit in a visit to the Canadian National Exhibition again, for the first time in practically a decade.

Mizz J eating a chicken waffle on a stick. Carnival food – usually disappointing and this was no exception.

Can’t complain about this summer. Got a lot done, and a lot of it was pure fun. The way summers should be.

Rock on,

The WB
