Daddy's Girl

Besides a brief period after I had Cakes, this is the first time in eight years I’m not a part-time student. It is such a relief! This weekend I actually spent time with my family! We took Cakes on her very first trip to the fire hall:

It was McHotty’s crew, and they’re very sweet, so she got lots of personal attention. She looks rather alarmingly comfortable behind the wheel, don’t you think? I will have to work on her literary side.

Sunday, I got on the bike for the second time in 15 years, and we went to the beach. I had planned to do lots of biking this summer, but up until a few days ago, McHotty’s been having to use my crap old bike. His bike, which was pretty decent, was actually stolen from the bike shop where it was getting a tune-up! The good thing is, it was a really high end bike shop, so they replaced his bike with one worth twice as much! Between this and the flood, we’re getting all of shit upgraded this summer, but it sure is not a convenient way to go about it!

Last night the neighbours joined us for dinner, and we indulged in the awesome ice wine I bought at Jackson Triggs last weekend. I knew if wouldn’t last long.

How were your weekends, y’all?

Her first trip? Wow. Bet she had those guys eating out of her hands... And my weekend was shrot - I worked Saturday, and did not much on Sunday. Next weekend will be better.

She looks adorable.

When you are doing a million things having school taken off your plate must be so freeing.

Yeah, you really are going about getting new stuff the hard way, but I am sure the icewine takes the edge off that.

Mmm, ice wine! We got some of that from the Niagara region last summer. Needless to say, it was gone long ago.
