Happy Canada Day!

Today is a holiday in Canada, it's Canada Day. There are some festivities in town today, and there will be some fireworks tonight. Tomorrow is the start of three days of Privateer Days, a yearly celebration in our town, and there are fireworks again on Sunday night. My BFF is home from Alberta til next Tuesday, and unfortunately I have to work Saturday (parade day). I tried to get it off, but no one bit. She'll take my boys to the parade. We'll lock up at work and go out to watch the parade - no one shops during the parade.

There has been little knitting going on lately. Not much time with BFF here. I did finish up the teachers' dishcloths, but my camera won't transfer anything to the computer, or I should say the computer won't transfer anything off of my camera. It has been causing me grief lately, been really hard to transfer stuff. I updated the software, but it still won't work. I even tried a different program, that didn't work. Next week I will have my new machine, and I'm taking the camera to work that day to make sure they have it transferring before I bring the new machine home. I also have to get them to set up my bookkeeping programs. They are old (still on floppies! but they work for my purposes), and if worst comes to worst then I will have to keep them set up on this old beast and use if for bookkeeping.

It's 10:30, and the kids are still asleep! We were out with BFF last night and a bunch, up to her brother's place. We didn't get home til 2:30am, the boys outlasted all the other kids. (But most of them didn't fall asleep til shortly before we left.) They had a blast sining karaoke, so now they want it for their PS2. And I have to soon split to go get my car at her parents' place. Tomorrow is a busy day, too. My little Miss Maggie is going to be spayed, then we are off to Peggy's Cove with the gang and do some other fun stuff in the city. BFF's boyfriend has to leave tomorrow night, his flight leaves at 8pm. BFF, her daughter, and the friend they came here with don't leave til Tuesday. The friend is from Germany, and she's never been to Nova Scotia, so we're trying to show her lots of stuff.

I will leave this post with a picture that I did manage to transfer last week. It's the first night that BFF was here, and we walked around the local walking trail. Pretty sunset over the river.

Happy knitting!

(As I end the post the beasts have awakened, lol!)
