Summer Slow Down

Summer has arrived in Muskoka!!

  The small town I live in is all of a sudden alive after many months of sleep…slightly poetic non? Oooooo French too.. 😀

Three times in two weeks I have narrowly missed being T-boned, hit head on and left questioning why some people have a driver’s licence at all!!

On my way home from work the other day I was waiting to make a left hand turn onto my road,  when the person waiting to make a left off my road decided  she’d just put the pedal to the metal and maybe push me out of the way? she missed me by mere inches!!


Yesterday coming home some guy in a huge black SUV decided it was a brilliant idea to pass on a double line and on a corner….again scared the cheese right out of us, all of a sudden there he was!!!

And then again today!  I had just pulled out onto the road and was coming up the small hill near the “Corner Store” when BANG there was another unsafe idiot driver, she was making an extremely wide turn I mean wide she was in my lane!!! This time scared the cheese whiz out of me!!

There was actually and accident in a parking lot on the weekend!!!!  A head on collision???? Really??? in a parking lot!!!!  People must slow down and pay attention!!

Many people come to Muskoka to unwind, slow down and enjoy time with their families….why is everyone in such a hurry????  or maybe that’s it, everyone is so relaxed and breathing in the Northern air that they just aren’t paying attention? hmmm.

on a happier note and to change the subject

Daughter #2 is having a wonderful time in Alberta, so much so, that I received a text from her last night saying “Can we move here, I love it , I don’t want to leave”  so much for “Mummy I miss you , and I just want to come home and give you a huge hug 😀

I am so happy we were able to send her out “West” again, she was there in May for an exchange trip with her class, and was invited back along with one of her friends from school.


With views like this I wouldn’t want to come home either! Will post some of her photos when she’s back


Daughter #3 is having a great time with Grandma swimming, shopping, gossiping and trying to keep Grandma out of trouble. 😀


Daughter #1 enjoys spending time with me now that her busy weekend is over and has nothing else to do… 😀

Son #1 is busy working so we don’t see too much of him 😀

Happy Monday!!


sorry couldn’t resist
