This was May 24 long weekend for us in Canada. This is the unofficial kick off to summer…and for the first time in a long time, the weather was FANTASTIC!
I had planned on posting lots of pics to Instagram and posting a blog entry or two, but the Wi-Fi at the cottage didn’t work this weekend. Despite calls to the service dept. and going into town to get a new modem, it still didn’t work. I also had incredibly crappy cell reception. Every once in a while a few emails would come in, but other than that, nothing much really worked on my phone. Instagram wouldn’t update, Facebook wouldn’t update, twitter wouldn’t update…it was a bit frustrating! All this meant I had an impromptu offline weekend.
Although I wasn’t able to post them, I still took quite a few pics this weekend. Here are just a few images from our weekend of long weekend fun!
Top Left: Nick taking the cousins for trips in the punt. They cruised up and down the lake and had a ball out there. Top Right: Jumping off the dock, even though the water was freezing! Bottom Left: Sitting at the locks, enjoying ice cream, watching the boats go through the lock. Bottom Middle: Catching crayfish. Bottom Right: My delicious Kawartha Lakes Dark Chocolate Bear Claw ice cream cone – dark chocolate ice cream with chocolate covered cashews. YUM!
Now, from the yummy to the gross…my rope climb rope burn is not doing very well. I think it’s infected. I have been putting polysporin on it all weekend, but today it was quite oozy and then my son accidentally kicked it when we were sitting at the table…OUCH! It started to bleed and man, did it hurt. Gross, eh!
I’ve got another busy week ahead:
Tuesday: CrossFit at 6:30AM! Golf 4:30 and ball hockey 8pm. It is supposed to rain tomorrow for most of the day, so golf may not happen.
Wednesday: Jackson ball hockey 7pm, CrossFit 8:30pm
Thursday: CrossFit 8:30pm
Friday: Massage 5pm – can’t wait!!!!!
Saturday: SpringFest 11am-3pm at my son’s school. Since I’m on parent council, I need to be there around 10am to help set up. Fingers crossed for good weather!
Sunday: Day of rest!
I’m not really looking forward to getting up at the crack of dawn to hit CrossFit tomorrow morning, but it was the only time I could make it work with my crazy schedule this week. Tomorrow’s WOD looks like an interesting one…lots going on for sure:
I’m sure this WOD will be tough…especially since I can’t eat before I go. I need to get some routine blood work done tomorrow that needs to be taken after fasting for 12 hours. My appointment is at 9:10am, so that means no food until after that. Good thing for me I ate like a trooper this weekend, so I should have some reserves to get me through the WOD! I will let you know tomorrow!
Now, I should get my oozy leg and tired ass to bed. 6:30 is going to come early.
How was your weekend?
Here’s hoping the short week ahead flies by!!!
