Happy Homemaker 2019-06-17

Good Monday morning

Let's see what happened last week:
  • Went for a walk one day before work at 6:00 am to visit Old Quebec - saw some stray cats near the hospital (someone is feeding them as there were some pots with catfood and water at the corner of the empty lot :) ).
  • Lunch at a restaurant with the girls at work - lots of laughter and a good lunch at Le Pub du Parvis.
  • My son and his girlfriend bought a new car (new to them), they will have it next Wednesday.
  • We babysat on Thursday (they went car shopping) and Friday (they had a baseball game to see with the company my son works for)
  • Friday night dh's cousin and his girlfriend came over in the evening for some chatting and a drink (tea for me).  I was also my nephew's high-school graduation
  • Saturday we picked my daughter and then we went to my parent's house.  There was the mud-race in the morning and my brother and some cousins went - they all came by for lunch afterwards at my parent's house (mechoui).  In the evening we went to my brother's house to visit.
  • Sunday was brunch for Father's day at my sister's house.  Then we dropped off my daughter and had lunch with her and her boyfriend (we got Subway's on the way there).  Stopped by Costco's for a few errands and got home around supper time.  We went to the cemetary in the evening to visit with my husband's dad.
Here we go with our regular programming.
