Today is our daughter Kelly’s birthday – Happy Birthday Kel, we hope it was a great one! We enjoyed our chat with you and hope you had a nice evening.

We woke up to rain this morning and the prospect of another wet, cool day. John went out first thing to get his hair cut and when he came home he said it was a crummy day out so I called Steve and asked him if Fort Langley, which we were going to do with them today, was outside stuff and he said pretty well so I suggested that we forget it. Steve certainly didn’t argue with me about it. We decided they would come over to our place about 2 and we would play cards then have dinner.

After talking to Steve I went over to the lounge at the office and got my blog caught up and did some other stuff on the internet. The connection is really good and fast there so it eliminates a lot of frustration from trying to get on it here and get something done.

Last night I had said I would do pulled pork in the slow cooker for when we got back from Fort Langley so it was a fun afternoon and dinner was really easy to get on the table. Steve & Cheryl brought a broccoli coleslaw that was really good and some salad that was left over from last night.

On Tuesday when we were at Steve & Cheryl’s we played a board game called Pente, lots of fun, and they brought it over today so we played that for quite a while then reverted to euchre. John was the only one not to win a game of Pente so he will be looking for another match in the hopes of winning one. Steve & Cheryl gave us one of their boards as they had two, but I don’t think it would be good for just John & I to play as we would probably be ready to kill each other – LOL!

Steve & Cheryl left a little bit ago and it was windy and cool but there were stars in the sky – could tomorrow be a nice day for a change? We have plans for tomorrow and it is an outdoor adventure so hopefully it will be nice or at least not raining!

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow and would be happy to see some sun.
