5 Things on a Friday: Long Weekend!

In Canada, we celebrate Victoria Day (you know, for Queen Victoria....) That means we get Monday off work.  Most Canadians just refer to this as May 2-4 (you know, for the 24 pack of beer), but I will be referring to it as May Gluten Free 2-4 (not quite the same ring I don't think).  Here are my five things for this weekend:
1- Getting our roof re-shingled:  That is happening today.  Somehow, my two year old, who wakes up if you open his bedroom door to peek in on him, took a two and a half hour nap while the roofers banged around on the roof over his head.  Go figure.

2- Saturday Morning Walk:  I love that one of my coworkers lives in the same neighbourhood, especially now that we take a weekly walk together.  It's usually on Mondays, but the rain has changed our plans.  I will start my Saturday morning with a hopefully dry, sunshiny walk with a friend.

3- Thesis:  I meet my prof. May 30.  He is expecting a complete draft.  I'm only a good 40 pages away.  That walk is going to be the only bit of sunshine I see tomorrow.

4- Family:  My Aunt and Uncle are coming from Cornwall, and my cousin is coming down with her son to visit on Sunday.  Chicken, a variety of cold salads, gluten free chocolate chip cookies and a juicy watermelon are the perfect way to kick off the summer.

5- Fireworks:  One of the perks of living close to an amusement park is having front row seats to the fireworks just by pulling out the lawn chairs onto the driveway.  It's also a great way to spend some time with your neighbours.

I'll still be blogging though, and the menu plan will go up as well.  Enjoy your weekend!
