Yesterday was recovery day (from sleepover and being out at Stampede all day) and school for Spence and I did some work and chores.

Today is Pet Adoption event for the kittens - I was originally going to stay the entire time, but now Spence wants to go to Stampede again, with friends - so I don't want to leave Karma in her kennel all day - so I'll probably only do half a shift and then come home - as the event is in the deep south and it'll take me a good 30 - 40 minutes of drive time to go in each direction.

Other than that - maybe putting that net together :) and relaxing in the sun.

Yesterday turned out to be busier than originally planned.  We signed Spence up for an essay writing course, which he will do over the summer.  He also signed up for a volleyball camp next week - 1/2 days (9am - start time) and we have Tuesday park days with the teens too - so next week will be busy.

Then he decided once Jonathan came over we needed to go to Yume for supper and on the way to get a new basketball as his won't stay inflated and also a new volleyball and then we needed a net too so he could throw the ball into something.....well by the time we were done, we had all the gear and I told the boys to put the net together.

Well, it's a 3 person job - so I joined in until 7pm when I had to leave to get the kittens vaccinated - but we still hadn't finished putting the net together - although it is now about 3/4 done.

Today the boys are off to Stampede all day, so we probably won't finish putting the net together until the weekend.

The past few days have flown by.....Spence of course is bored as his friends are doing summer school, but between school, video games and seeing his dad, it's not as bad as it could be.

Today Jonathan is coming over for a sleepover and then tomorrow the boys head to Stampede for the day with James, Tammy and the girls.

I'm going to get a bunch of stuff done around the house and a bit of work done - I laid the flooring for the utility room yesterday, need to still seal it, then it's ready for the hot water tank and furnace when they arrive.

Other than that - not much planned for the rest of the we'll work, chill and relax while the weather is nice.

This weekend has been relaxing - I planted all of the flowers I bought for the year...both the perennials and annuals, hoping most of the perennials take.  I included some native ferns in the shady area (a bit of a reminder of Vancouver, where there are plenty of ferns) and some taller vine like perennials against the fence.

Spence has chilled - video games, hanging out with Jacob, etc and he played in a League of Legends tournament, which he really enjoyed.
