I am finally back in business as I couldn’t get into my blog account as I had forgotten my password…so thankfully for my good friend Jordon who always remembers these kinds of trivia…I am now up and running again.

We had an amazing holiday at Waskesiu with my brother Ron, sister Doris and husband Lorne, sister Joanne and husband Dwight, and Jerry and I.  We were generously given the use of a beautiful cabin at the lake with 3 bedrooms and all the amenities, including air conditioning, so our stay was amazing.  We ate lots, enjoyed the sun, walked lots, the guys played frisbee in the water, and boochie on the grounds, for hours on end, we read lots, laughed lots, cried some, and just plain enjoyed ourselves.  We had absolutely amazing weather…hot and sunny…with a little rain and some thunder for Joanne’s sake.  The days went by so fast, and it seemed we had just arrived when we had to pack up and head home again.  Wonderful memories were made and great pictures were taken for keepsakes.

I am back at work for the next 4 weeks in August as it always seems August is a very busy month getting ready for the Fall season.  Matt and Tamara are both home the last part of August so I am taking that week as holidays and also the first two weeks of September when Jerry and I are heading to the west coast.

This has been an amazing summer with much enjoyment with the great weather.  Our grandpuppies have been lots of work, but also so much fun.  They are so much a part of our lives that it will seem strange not to have them around next month.  Our good friend Shannon came every morning and took them for a walk and fed them; and our next door neighbour Marie loves dogs and came every afternoon to make sure they were doing fine, while we were on holidays. Talk about being spoiled!  Oh the life of being a dog!

We have given the dogs free reign on the side of our house, so the holes are getting bigger and deeper every time we take another look.  When it was so hot they would dig into the soil to get cool and lay there for the day sleeping.  We will need to do a little work once they are back in Calgary.  They love our backyard where they can run and chase each other as fast as they can run.  It is absolutely hilarious.

Enough rattling on about life at the Reimers.  Just wanted to get caught up with the happenings in our lives.  Jerry is doing some renovation work with his friend Gerry this week, so that keeps him busy.
