I realized on the weekend that I can't remember the last time I had a few (or any) days at home to just be here. We always have something planned. Sometimes it's good when plans go awry.

We got our new Escape last week, it's so nice and almost new. Drove it around town for a week and it was all good. Then left on Saturday for Claresholm to Shane's wedding on what turned out to be the hottest day of the summer so far only to find the ac doesn't blow cold air. It blows air all right, but there was already plenty of warm air. We didn't need more. So the truck is in the shop and our plans have changed so there will be a couple of unplanned days. I slept in this morning (and I am a little embarassed to say how "in"). It's warm again and I am doing nothing and it is wonderful.

We are glad we went to Shane's wedding even though it was almost the worst weekend it could have been for us. I help out at the annual 10k trail rain at the lake which was on Saturday, so couldn't be there, and we wished we could get to Edmonton to pick Sam up at the airport. But it was also great to see the Hanlans and it's fun to get away and see some countryside.

We stayed at the Bluebird Motel. It's an old motel on the highway, you know the old-school kind I mean, but it was quite cool and clean, the main issue as far as I am concerned. Randy Travis has stayed there, and Michelle Wright.

The wedding itself was in the community centre followed by the dinner and dance. All pretty low-key, which I prefer to a big production of a wedding. And we had good visits with Heather and her kids, Dick and Jo and Margaret and John. Barb was planning on attending but she fell and cut her leg a couple of weeks back and it is not healing like it should so couldn't leave home.
Stopped in Calgary for a new vanity for the kitchen bathroom, then drove home with the windows open and tunes blaring.

We had a good time visiting with Geoff & Theresa and all the rest of the family. Much nicer to visit with the good wishes of a wedding rather than a funeral.

Still, we are sad you are not here tonight.
Apparently there is another clothing optional beach near Naramata.
Why are there so many naked people in the Okanagan?

It is nice to have some time to just hang at home.

Anyone who went to a nude beach here would catch pneumonia.
