All Hail the Queen

Canada's favourite long weekend is fast approaching.

Ok, I don't really know if it's Canada's favourite long weekend, but it's the first long weekend of the summer, so maybe it should be!! It is a time that we spend with our family and friends, where we act all crazy as if summer has actually arrived.

We head out to camping sites, pitch tents, set up coolers, perhaps fish. Some of us are foolish enough to think that the lake will be warm enough to swim in, and take a dive, only to quickly find out that is not so. But they all say it was a refreshing dip in the lake~I don't believe them. I've tried the May 2-4 camping on several occasions. If you knew me, you would know I love a good camping weekend. But I don't enjoy freezing off my butt. So this kid would rather stay in town, and hit the patios to enjoy my beer :)

As a side note, I would like express the following confusion....I just googled images for "camping" and so many nudie pics came up!!! Why do naked people and camping fall under the same category???? Aahhhh....they must be the folks who have jumped in the lake, came out all freezing, and in the process of changing out of their swimsuits (assuming they were not skinny dipping) to their sweatsuits, their prankster friends must have taken a pic. Yes, I am sure that is the situation. Otherwise Google has a situation on their hands. I just saw too much T&A for 10:30 on a Monday morning....

I don't really have any solid plans yet for this long weekend. Other than having to take a trip to Grandma's~as her birthday is this weekend. Ahhhh....she and the queen have so much in common, hahaha!! Besides that festive moment, I have a potential plan of going to Molly Bloom's. And I'm not sure what my dear roomie is up to. I would like to have a BBQ in the
backyard and kick back a few beers with my landlords though. And I'm sure there will be some fireworks to enjoy Monday night at a nearby park. Can't pass the May 2-4 weekend without fireworks (and screaming kids, and barking dogs, and high teenagers...)

I will revel with the rest of the nation in the bliss of a 3 day weekend, and look forward to the impending summer season, when camping is more reasonable.
