Happy Homemaker Monday 2018-06-25

Linking up to Sandra at Diary of a Stay at home mom 

June 25th!  Exactly 6 months to Christmas!  My blogposts are all ready for Christmas in July :)
June 23rd was our 28th wedding anniversary... as usual I forgot about it! MIL reminded me and she is 90 years old :)  Nothing special was done (more tummy problems again) but we spent a nice day at home.  It's a 3 day weekend for everyone here as our national holiday - St-Jean-Baptiste is on the 24th and everyone has a day off (this year will be the Monday following).   I took Friday off (vacation day) so it gives me a 4-day weekend.
