Anyway these days I am enjoying the delights of Regina in the summer time - don't laugh, they are great. I am enjoying my huge balcony very very much. In fact it is calling me now but I am resisting it's charms..on second thought I guess I could be out there on my netbook...no, no...I will stay here.
My training for the QCM half marathon on September 9th is on track - yesterday I did 18km out at Regina Beach. Yes I've got wheels for the weekend. I am taking some friends to Moose Jaw this afternoon so hope to do the 10km walk there but we shall see how the body likes that...
I turned 60 almost three weeks ago...I did not go quietly. I had two parties and two outings..it was amazing. I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends. Good friends, good health, a part time job I enjoy, a nice place to live, close access to my beloved Wascana Park... and of course the opportunity to travel..what more could a gal want?
Both of my parties were English themed - everyone knows me and my obsession with all things English... here are a few pictures...

My friends at a surprise party thrown for me in late June. I had NO clue it was happening...or I would have dressed better! I thought we were going out for Norma's birthday and I decided I was going to walk home from the restaurant to get in my training walk. They had a good laugh about that one - I could barely walk period after the evening was over!!!
I would post photos here but am having problems with transferring the zip files...
MY FRIENDS ROCK!!!
As if July wasn't busy enough I was away for two weekends in Alberta. More on that in other posts!!!
