Gilles and Lise came over this morning for coffee and as we were talking, my niece (Peter’s daughter) Caroline, husband Marco and children Elizabeth and Christopher arrived from Quebec City. I hadn’t seen them in over 6 years so it was a big reunion. We visited for the rest of the day but at 3 pm, we had to leave to go to Gaetan for dinner with Michel and Therese. We had a great visit with Gaetan and Josette who made a marvellous dinner of Pork Loin and Gaetan prepared a great mixture of sliced potatoes and vegetables. Christiane and friend Susan joined us too (They just live down the street). Afterwards, Josette served everyone a great dessert and Gaetan got the fire going. We finally got home around 11 pm and found Peter and friend Mona by the fire so Michel and I joined them for a while. I went to bed at midnight.
Sunny with cloudy period; warm and humid! Peter cooked everyone pancakes and toast for breakfast then we relaxed around the yard. The kids played in the water of course; they have more sense than us the adult. Michel and Therese packed up and left around 2 pm for their house in St-Hubert, a suburb of Montreal. We spent more time with my niece and family; Gaetan and Josette arrived and visited with all of us. Soon it was Caroline and family’s turn to leave for home so we said our goodbyes as we won’t see them for a while, they are leaving for China on Aug 18 to work and live for a year or two; maybe more! The rest of the afternoon, we visited with Gaetan and Josette and had a very nice dinner prepared by Mona. A fire finished the evening.
Sunny, warm and humid! It seems strange not seeing Michel and Therese RV beside us anymore, that part of the yard looks empty. Peter, Mona and us went shopping and banking then stopped at “Charlemagne Restaurant” for a drink and snack. We came home and Val made lasagna then we walked over to Gilles to feed the dogs and let them out as Gilles and Lise are gone to Lake Magog for a couple days. We came home and sat around having a drink or two. We even got a surprise call from my son Jeff and brother Johnny from Vancouver.
Another hot and humid day, A/C is on! We spent the day mainly in or around the lake, just too hot to do anything else. I am baby-sitting Gilles dog while he is away so I go there 4 times a day to feed them and let them out to do their thing. I did go to town to get some propane.
Mona cooked dinner tonight, a macaroni, pork and tomatoe sauce which was delicious. That’s a dish my mom used to serve us kids when we were young.
