JUL 23 to 31; Sister and brother in Law arrived from Montreal, Quebec.
We went to Kamloops today (Tuesday) to pick up Val’s eye contacts and a few groceries. It is very hot out there, at least 35-36*C and it is forecasted to last until at least Saturday.
Wednesday we went boating with Bob and Gail on their boat. We swam and cooled off nicely for about 3 hours. It was great, we even got Val and Gail on a float and drag behind the boat. A lot of fun was had by all. It was a good way to beat the heat!
Back to work on Thursday and in the evening, I spoke with Jeffrey, Rochelle, Kevin, Debbie (Jeff girlfriend), and Therese and Michel from Montreal (my sister and brother-in-law). They arrived yesterday and Jeff was having a BBQ in their honor tonight. It is so nice to see my little family together like that; I wish I could have been there.
Friday was payday for both of us, I worked an hour overtime because of a load of firewood came in late and I had to stick around to let him in and lock up after him and then do the last run of refuse pick-up.
We woke up Saturday to very strong winds and cooler temperature (below 30*C) which made for a nice change.
Sunday we had some sprinkle but nothing to make things really wet. Bob and Gail joined us at the Scotch Creek Pub for the famous “Sunday Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding”; absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection! Donna and Marcel joined us as we were just to leave. We left but B&G stayed back to keep them company.
Monday, our “Friday”, was very warm, sunny and a few clouds in the afternoon. HH at our place with Bob & Gail and Ed & Judy! Morris and his wife Brenda were in the park visiting everyone. It was good seeing them; they used to own the lot next to Donna and Marcel but due to unfortunate circumstances, they had to sell. There is a lot of discontentment around due to uncertainties which won’t be resolve until the owner goes to court in September against CSRD, the Political Regional Body.
Tuesday, our first day off, Val went to Tai-Chi class in Chase with Gail and Donna then afterwards we went to Salmon Arm for our mail and some groceries. I talked to Jeff who will now bring up my sister and husband on Aug 10 and spend a couple nights with us. T&M will have Brooks’ trailer to stay in for 4 nights. Very warm today, 30*+ C
Wednesday, the 31st, another month gone by. Sunny and very warm, we’ve now had a whole month of sunshine with little to no rain worth recording. We spent the day dumping, washing vehicles, doing laundry and vacuuming the inside of our house. HH was at our place again and Dennis and Ruth joined us. For dinner, we had Mahi-Mahi fish with rice then it was relaxing before work tomorrow!
