Yesterday I finally cast off the first Pomatomus sock (photo pending). To celebrate I cast on a neck down raglan sweater to knit on our road trip to Montreal this weekend. I and the Zakrzewski clan are driving to Montreal. DH’s mother has a friend who lives in Montreal, or that’s what she told us when she initially added this trip to her itinerary, while still in Poland. When DH finally spoke to the friend to get directions we discovered that she lives outside of Montreal in a Saint-Bruno – “the prettiest town in Quebec”. We will find out this weekend. So we have rented a mini van to drive DH, his mother, his father, his sister, her eight-year old son (the new Dennis the menace), and myself to Quebec. My kids have developed alternate plans. Just as well since I don’t know how and when we are going to see Old Montreal on this schedule. I’m just going to go with the flow and knit my sweater.

Last weekend the Zaks went to Guelph and DS and I went to Chatham for the annual reunion of my father’s school buddies and family. It was a glorious weekend. Beautiful weather. I spent most of my time lying on a blanket in the apple orchard. I only got up to eat or refill my glass with Jamaican rum punch. Every summer weekend should be like this.
