Chuckles and Chortles

Good morning, everyone. I hope the weekend was great. It was rainy most of Saturday, so we took it easy until it cleared up in the evening. Then we hopped on our bikes and went riding around town. And stopped by the lake to enjoy the view.

I tell you, there’s nothing like being near the water.

Yesterday was gorgeous! We threw our bikes in the car and headed downtown to check out the multicultural festival that was going on. Such a cool event! There was dancing and great food and wonderful exhibits from many different cultures. We had lunch, stuck around for awhile and then went cycling for a couple of hours. We returned home around four in the afternoon, and I set to work putting together a breakfast-style dinner for a house full of teens. I told my daughter to invite some friends over for pancakes whenever they could all get together, and yesterday was the day. In addition to pancakes, I served fruits and sausages. They. Ate. Everything. As teens often will. It was fun having them over. They’re all great kids.

This morning I’m heading to the dentist. But before I leave, what do you say we laugh together? Let’s do it...









Have a great day, everyone!

    1. It was fun. The best weekends are the ones that are a mixture of things, including some relaxation time.

    1. I think living here plays a huge factor in our desire to ride our bikes. We never did this when we lived in the big city. Too busy. Too much traffic. Too scary to ride on the roads. But here it's quieter, safer, and a lot of more interesting. Every bike ride is a new adventure.

      Steal away, Carolyn! And share them.

  12. I love the lake and the cycling you and the most wonderful man in the world do and view so much, and if I weren't well, if i were well, I'd do what you do, but it's not a possibility for me, it's hard to get out of the apt, long story, anyhoo I love the jokes it made me laugh so hard probably woke the neighbour, I don't know how I missed this post maybe yesterday I couldn't connect, but whenever i do, I feel better, there is that magic about you, thank you sweet Martha
