    Daughter
    My daughter is coming home from the Army tonight. She has served her time and now coming home until her husband gets home from Afghanistan next year. Have only seen her twice in the last three years. I'm also going to see my granddaughter for the first time too. This is going to be a Blessed day.

    I'm so excited.

    She served overseas (in Hawaii) LOL in a non deployable unit which I thank God for. Her husband is in Afghanistan now though. She is staying with us until she can find an apartment. Can't wait to kiss my two babies tonight :)

    This weekend
    We are having 2 plays performed in our backyard (weather permitting) with a light dinner served in between the plays. My oldest daughter studied acting at a Perfoming Arts High School, has graduated from university + is studying theatre for her masters degree starting in Sept. She + her friend have a production company. My daughter is starring in one play + directing the other. It should be fun. Sunday maybe we will go sailing (energy + weather permitting).

    Already spilled the beans on my plans...
    Saturday is Sail Amsterdam, in by train after biking to the station (at 7am!!!!!). I have already warned my beau that I WILL be 'playing tourist'...and buying all sorts of junk to remember the occasion!!!!!!

    Sunday is a 'snufflemart' (read swap meet) in Apeldoorn. It should be great, if we are not too tired!

    Hugs to all!

    another not the weekend but
    Just cleaning and yard work plus a graduation party for my niece this weekend but next Thursday a couple of high school friends are flying in (Wisc to Upstate NY) and we'll be driving to Quebec City for a few days. Haven't seen them for a couple of years....can't wait and I'm sure we'll have a great time.

    I love Quebec City!
    Quebec City is a favourite city of mine; I absolutely love it there. When I have been there, I feel like I am in Europe, without the expensive airfare. I hope you enjoy it!

    Quebec City
    I've heard that and was hoping it was true....thanks for confirming. I live about 40 miles south of Montreal and they say it's very European but I think larger than Quebec City. Any suggestions on must see places or things to make sure to do?

    Stay in the old part of the city
    The old part of Quebec City is gorgeous. I haven't been there in ~ 5 years, but the last time we went we stayed in a little inn right in "Old Quebec". We parked the car + never used it for the 5 days we were there - we just walked everywhere. At the inn, continental breakfast was provided every day (chocolate croissant + orange juice + coffee/tea). The restaurants were all fantastic, + there are lots of really old historic ones. One night we took a dinner cruise on the river + it was magical. In the old part of the city there is lots of street entertainment - buskers, musicians, artists etc. My husband + I went with our two daughters + we all loved it. I will ask my husband too, for more specifics - he has been there many more times than me.

    old part
    I wanted to stay in the Old Part and found a really nice (historic) B&B but my friends were adamant on separate beds and a couple of bathrooms so we took two rooms at a Holiday Inn in Ste-Foy. It's suppose to be very close to the city center and there is shuttle service so we should be okay...just park the car and leave the driving to someone else. I'm a real foodie so I'm hoping they'll agree to one great meal a day. The hotel provides breakfast and figured lunch would be a snack but dinner at one of the cafes or historic restaurants would be heaven. Oh well, it's really all about the company so I'm flexible. Lucky for me my son lives in NYC and is also a foodie so visits there are always a culinary delight!!!

    I don't think you can go wrong in Quebec City
    You are going to have a great time (you have no idea how jealous I am!) wherever you go in Quebec City. If you are a foodie, I think you will love it. We stayed in Ste-Foy one time as well; I can't remember which hotel. It was nice, too. You can look around + scope out where you would stay next time. I will definitely look forward to hearing your thoughts on QC after you visit. It is, to me, very different than any other North American City I have been to. Montreal is great too, but as you said, much larger. Quebec City has retained more of the small city, historic feel, although Montreal does have some old beautiful areas too. Bon Appetit!

    Yes
    Jamming music with my buddies I met online 2 years ago. We are still playing and having fun. I think I have some recordings on the expressions page. Also getting peaches from the local farm. they've been incredible this year. I also have to pick tomatoes from our garden. I'll visit Mom how is a rehab center recovering from a fall, she loves the peaches and tomatoes. I also plan on lots of swimming since the summer is winding down and also cutting the lawn.
    Beats last weekend when I had a RFA done.
    You (and everyone) have fun too
