Labour Day weekend was pretty lame this year due to the weather. It was boiling hot and sunny during the work week but then as soon as the weekend neared, the weather promptly turned cold and rainy. This obviously was a bit of a kick in the pants, particularly for those who escaped to a cottage or camp site this year. After some debate, Hubby and I neither camped nor cottaged (His aunt owns a cottage, but it is heavily occupied by her son and daughter-in-law during the summer), and instead relaxed at home and tried to make the best of it.
The best of it meaning we played video games, ate lots of food and only ventured outside for a few hours. During one of those treks outside, we went to Petrie Island. It was windy and cold, but it was still nice to walk around a park for a bit:
After walking around, my ears started to sting from the cold, so we went back home and then did some errands.
The only other activity of note this weekend was a trip to one of my favorite dog parks-Bruce Pitt Park. On Monday morning, the skies were clear and I thought: ‘Finally! Some decent weather’
But when we got into the car and started driving west, dark, gloomy clouds started to form and that pretty much ended my hopes for a nice long excursion in puppy land and it began raining within the first forty minutes . %&*^%!
Luckily, however, I still managed to get some pictures:
This St.Bernard was such a cutie, I had to take some photos of him, and when I approached with my camera, his handler ordered him to pose for me, which is unusual. (Most people just look at me like I’m a dog nut, which I am) “He’s a therapy dog and should be used to having his picture taken”, she said, ordering him to sit over and over. I’m not a stickler for posing, since animals aren’t people, and don’t sit still for as long. But I think he posed pretty well.
That’s about it for the weekend. I hope your weekend got some better weather!
