i think it was my cousin joel
who once said that two in the morning is acutally a very productive time.
oh man.
i cleaned the two rooms of my house that are consistantly dead last on my desire/priority with a sponge list.
i freaking ajaxed the bathroom floor
and scrubbed that fucker with a vegetable scrubber.
thats something.
i also went to town on my kitchen. hallelujah the fruit flys desist.
i flopped into bed so satisfied. and woke up the same.

lantern festival tonight.

so the sunday night recap.
today was one of the best days i've had.
this morning i sky trained out to surrey to meet up with ben and sarah.
my heart is happy to see ben and sarah.
back to the hoskyn house for lunch and lounging.
a little croquet in the park.
very relaxing amongst conversations and such things.
sky training back into the city,
i had to drop off stephen's bus pass that i had borrowed.
a little hike up keefer to where a little contigent of a vineyard meets
andy kenton stephen leading worship,
and one of the best sermons i've heard in a loong time.
it was incredibly refreshing to sit back and work my mind.
a quick stop after at dq, where kenton tells us about frisbee golf.
frisbee golf?
sure, says kenton. buckets instead of holes. smaller, weighted frisbees. nine hole course. queen e park.
andy says, can't go back to langly without seeing this.
so we drive over to queen e park and play a round of frisbee golf.
i surprise myself with my ambidextrous, frisbee throwing, staying moslty within par, skills.
and back to the flat for laundry, cleaning skills.

saturday the only thing intresting i did was leave the house at 7 for mosaic.
it was too hot.
after mosaic we went to scott and crystals for wine and fruit. perfect.

friday was the concert by the kids whom stephen and kenton
taught all week in the
school of rock.
totally cute.
three little ten year olds
rocking out to some rad tunes they'd learned.

so sitting here sunday night,
the alarm set for six hours from now,
i'm pretty excited to be going to work tommorow.
jax had his two year birthday party this afternoon,
so i'm curious about how it went down for him.
and opposed to how its been going in recent weeks,
the last week i'd been mostly having a great time again.
so heres to rocking out with a preschooler, a toddler and an infant.
and benny and sarah may come by.

and i'm kind of addicted to mah jong.

hmm. i think i'll start a sunday night tradition here at the blog.
for the second week now i find myself
up at a relatively late hour
having slept in
thus with no prospects for sleep on the horizon.
which make for intresting mondays at work.

a weekend recap?
friday night i hung out with my dearest courtnay
i think we did dinner..
saturday i slept late late
did a little shopping and walking in the neighborhood
and walked down to mosaic later on.
mosaic was good because it was super tiny this week.
a disheartened attept at social all accoss the board
found me walking late over to happy bats and got some movies.
today i spent the afternoon at our community bikes
learning about the various mechanical functions and maladies of my bike.
but now my bike is so perfect!
a quick hello with the toons at jj
then down to MEC to get a new bike lock
then dinner with courtnay one more.

and now i sit here.
i'm excited to ride my bike tommorow to feel the difference.
lussierhoskyn are here this week..mid i think.
but a whole other week until it gets detailed.
maybe i should climb into bed and pretend that sleep is upon me.
and also my house is screaming for a clean. screaming.
have i mentioned my love affair with red river?
its so delicious first thing in the morning. a little

last night after mosaic,
josh and his american, david bazan lookalike contingent, jay and ross
along with suzie and i
walked down to the night market
strolled around
introduced bubble tea, against my attempted veto.
ate lots for cheap.
then we drove over to the drive.
attempted havana's..who has their last call at 11 on a saturday night?
decided to walk up to wazubee's.
4 pitchers of beer on an american credit card later,
we decided to crash at suzie's place, which is decently close by.
jay and ross proclaim their midwestern roots
and deem themselves impervius to such a low consumed amount of alcohol.
"we're midwestern."
we drive slowly the 10 blocks to suzie's house.
roomate absent means a bed for julie.
too hot upstairs, so i grabbed a pillow and headed out to the hammock.
my hindsight time perception i'm sure is slightly scued due scottish cream ale.
but i lasted maybe about 1/2 hour, 45,
and then i'm too cold.
back to bed..around three..
up at 7..can't sleep
look through absent roomies books
read 'god in the allies' in its entirety.
10 everyone else starts to stir,
we leave for breakfast on main street.
five breakfasts on a different american credit card later,
we say goodbyes, great to meet you's
have fun selling your fireworks
thanks for treating
no its a twoonie
thats a loonie.
