Okanagan Beach Bash

At the beach with the M & J's clan. We had head standing competitions(Miranda is the champ) and log standing (I won).  I am sure John will appreciate how well I captured his winning technique ;) And take a look at Peter's pipes! I had to put that pic in because his arm muscles look so massive :)

Went to Inception last night. The air conditioning was up to high and Peter was jumpy all through the movie because he was cold. I weird movie. ACTION! I liked the premise for it--entering one's dreams and changing them. 

Took 6 little girls to Ramona and Beezus on Tuesday night. All was well until the cat died. Pip could not stop crying about it--she was devastated. Artemis didn't get it. She couldn't understand how the cat went from "sleeping" in its bed to being buried--she thought she missed the death scene. She kept shouting "How'd they kill the cat?" "Who killed the cat?" She was hilarious! But Pip, oh that Pip...the tears continued until the movie was over and then intensified and she became completely hysterical and irrational. She was crying so hard I could not calm her down (yes, she was exhausted and I shouldn't have taken her to the movie in the first place). Then she vomited all over me as we left the theatre. It was hysterical vomiting because she was crying so hard. Mist's friend Ashley was most helpful and whipped in a Cafe to get some napkins for me.

My mind needs more Buddha. I have to start regular meditations daily. I am a confused mess. I feel overwhelmed by my Masters red-tape and by my home chores. 

My girls have been naughty. They begged me to left them thrift at a local thrift shop. I didn't want to as I do not need anymore stuff in my home! I caved and sure enough, a 1950's pull out bed/love-seat in copper became my next purchase. It weighs about 1000 lb. and Peter refused to let me load it in the van and take it home (he met me at the thrift store  after his work)--he hates all the old furniture I collect.
I only payed $25 for it and since I already had the cushions at home and Mistaya really liked it, he caved.  But I refuse to let the girls talk me into thrifting again because I cannot fit anything else in my home and if I see vintage furniture for a low price, I cannot help myself!!! Help me Buddha! I'm a thrifting maniac! I told you I need more meditation--I am a mess when it comes to thrifting. There is a wonderful old trunk and stereo cabinet there from the 40's that I passed up though as I already have a similar stereo.

May stay home this long weekend as I have a big camping trip coming up with M and her girls and my girls to Banff and Yoho on Tuesday (maybe my nephew KW too). However, Monday is my birthday so I want to have local exciting family days of hiking, swimming and biking. I think I'd like a boat for Okanagan Lake--that way we could find private beaches.
