This is where I recap our week featuring what we ate!
Saturday the wedding celebrations continued up north at a resort. Breakfast was included and we started the morning chatting with family members who then all dispersed to enjoy various activities. The bride and groom off with their wedding parties. The groom's father to finish his speech. And all the various "kids" to either sleep more or engage in outdoor activities. John and I decided to explore the area. We headed to Lakefield.
Then into Peterborough, but just for a while as it was too hot.
We chose to head back to the resort for a cold beer and sitting on the balcony.
Time to get ready!!!!
Click here for amazing photos of the wedding taken by Derrel Hoshing. Here's a sample.
Let me just say we have one of the most fantastic blended families ever! My niece took this photo.
Cocktail Hour - back to my photos.
Dinner forgot a photo of the gorgeous salad!
And the dancing begins.
Sunday was a long drive home and was then spent relaxing.
Monday John golfed and I just went out for some groceries. I took this shot while waiting for the shuttle and enjoying the music at Union Station.
The murals - 25 of them depicting the history of Islington. Click here to view a whole plethora of photos!!!.
Then it was time to do a Costco run and a Weston Bakery run.
Wednesday is John's weekly men's league golf game. I picked up some vegetables for today and tomorrow. And look who I saw!!
Thursday - we went out to lunch at Her Father's Cider Bar and Kitchen. Now that John is gluten intolerant he is trying ciders as an alternative to beer. This was the perfect place, with 80 ciders on order. They had 12 on tap.
They got drier as you went from right to left.
Mine, in front, a Shiny Pinot Noir. Delicious.
Birthday dinner for my nephew and his dad. Here he is with John at the wedding.

I haven't mentioned what I've been reading the last couple of weeks. I did two sad WWII books, The Book Thief and The Lost Wife. I followed that by a funny and much needed The Rosie Project.
I just finished Under the Visible Life
Recent movies were Remember again Nazis. Our Brand is Crisis very intriguing look into the "making of a leader".
