And now we're back!!

Well, we had a pretty wonderful and relaxing time! Among the highlights:
-swimming in the warm outdoor pool
-skating on the outdoor rink (on which I took two pretty spectacular spills)
-eating FANTASTIC food
-playing dozens of games of cribbage while sitting in the lounge drinking hot chocolate and Bailey's
-driving through our province's beautiful mountain range
-resting, resting, resting

And now we're home, watching the Oscars and looking ahead to this week. The cats seem to be happy to see us, and are ingratiating themselves by sitting in laps, licking fingers and purring.

This afternoon after we got home, we watched The Departed, the movie starring Jack Nicholson, Leo DiCaprio, and Matt Damon, about the mob mole in the Police Force and the undercover cop in the mob. I don't want to spoil endings for anybody who hasn't seen it, but suffice to say that it was very entertaining and very clever. If you don't mind swearing and violence, check it out!

It looks and sounds beautiful! I would have loved to have been there.

My weekend was dominated by sick kids and GS cookies. Now, I am off to sit at the Kroger for another 5 hours hoping people buy more cookies. I have quickly learned that GS is an all consuming task. Future advice, stay away from a leadership role no matter how innocent it may same.
