Friday, August 22, 2008

Friday was our designated vegging out day. Our morning routine - coffee, sitting on the deck, reading, eventually showering, watching the Olympics dragged out until around 2 in the afternoon.

I began to read a John Grisham book called The Chamber and had my nose stuck in that book basically the whole day.

Towards the end of the afternoon Helene and I ventured out to exit 6 to pick up some alcohol and do a little shopping. We also discovered that the visitor centre had internet access - all we needed to do was get there when no one else was on the machine. They also have a very short time limit.

Pat’s friends Cathy and Harry came for dinner and my job was to barbecue the steaks. Now I am not the world’s greatest steak barbecuer but this time I was dead on - medium and medium rare - dumb luck.

Cathy and Harry lived for 30 years in Saskatoon but a few years ago came home to Nova Scotia. They have a home in Halifax and a nice little cottage close to the cottage Pat has rented for the summer. We talked typical things - the Roughriders, the Prairies and the Maritimes.

Pat and Mark’s daughter Jane also joined us for dinner and she stayed out with us overnight.
