And summer is flowing by ...

Man oh man this summer is just whipping by ~ it's been a wonderful summer in the fact that I seem to have gotten out and enjoyed so much more of it this year ~ certainly makes a difference when you have someone in your life that wants to go out and really live and experience life with you. We are so fortunate to live in the "Festival City" and together Kev and I have spent more time going out and catching a little bit of this and that ~ we've been to a live play, taken in "the Works", "Capital Ex", and Cariwest Parade ~ spent time hitting the Farmer's Markets ~ and going to different restaurants and shops ~ went camping and soon plan to take a trip to the coast to see family.

In a couple weekends we will have experienced my 25th Grad reunion - man that ages me ~ have to say I have been a bit of a bundle of nerves thinking of going. I really haven't touched base with more than a couple people from school - and didn't really know very many as it was, but yet I really don't feel like I can miss it ~ so off we shall go, glad that Kevin will be with me - I can always pretend it is just the two of us going out among a bunch of strangers and just focus on time with him ~ that will calm my nerves I am sure.

My very good friend Dawn is going to Disneyland for holidays this summer ~ man oh man I envy her, but one day soon it will be others turn to envy me as I head off to somewhere warm in the winter months. I applied for my passport last week, and soon I will have no holds barring me from traveling out of Canada ~ and look forward to planning a winter holiday getaway with my man.

I am getting excited at the thought of my soon to be born new great niece or great nephew ~ I am so blessed that my nieces and nephew (by ex-marriage) still consider me to be their Aunt and want me to always be a part of their lives. It has been a while since I have been able to be around a little one, as my own sister's all live in BC and so my nieces and nephews live very far away ~ so I haven't been able to spend much time with them while they have been growing.

I wrote this on my facebook status today:

Tickled silly just to be in the play ....... Yep :)
