Happy Holiday

Today is New Brunswick Day.  Basically it's a stat holiday here in Canada and we like to give things names.  I lived in the UK for years and always found it odd how they just called things Bank Holiday Monday when they had a long weekend.  We love having something celebrate here in Canada even if it barely makes sense.  We're bigger on St. Patrick's Day than the Irish, I swear.

Anyway, I'm off putting our lives back together after a couple of days camping and then hopefully enjoying some nice relaxing BBQing on our deck before heading back to work.   

Hope you had a lovely weekend and, if you're on holiday today too enjoy it!
