There are a few veggies under the meat but they aren't that necessary because you have THE steak!! Melt in your mouth goodness! I forgot to take a picture of dessert...a spice apple pie. Mmmmmm. We got home and Hubby and I went for a walk!!!! Here are our beautiful girls at the steakhouse:
Our boys didn't come down for the weekend. They had lots of plans in Edmonton I guess.
Before Daughter2s birthday is my Dad's birthday on the 4th. This year he turned 74 and was busy running to meetings then a convention in Edmonton. He is very difficult to find gifts for...he needs nothing, he has a lot of stuff so I made him a collage. It was fun finding the pictures, new and old, to print off and then use.
He liked it...said it brought back lots of memories and I know some were sad. There are a lot of pictures of both my Mom and Dad. But that's what life is all about right?? Memories.
Up north at our old place I had two big peony plants. I loved those flowers, ants and all. Yesterday I was at a Safeway and lo and behold, in their flower department, they had bunches of peonies...without the ants!!!!! Two bunches came home with me and I smell them every time I go by the vase....ahhhhhhh.....love them! I do have two plants planted here but they might be another year or two before they produce the flowers. I'll enjoy the cut ones when I can find them!
I caught the sun shining in on them this morning. Oh it was a scorcher of a day! 31C at least! This evening the wind picked up and kind of cooled things down but windows are open tonight and it's been great! I can hear the frogs outside.....kind of like living back out in the country!
Three more weeks of work then summer vacation!!!! I am looking forward to it.....lots of things on the to-do list as well as visits up north! The dog days of summer!!!!
