My father and I just got done watching the fireworks display from my deck and I have sent him downstairs with my food processor and two large onions. I'm having a big dinner party tomorrow night and there is a certain amount of prep work to be done. Luckily for me, my dad doesn't mind being given the joe jobs.
THIS year I didn't miss the free cake and coffee at the local supermarket like I did last year. THIS year I was patriotically prepared! Last year I didn't even have a Canada T-shirt and had to commandeer my husband's. Well, this year I had a T-shirt but it was seriously wrinkled, ironing being dead last on my list of favorite housework activities, so once again I commandeered my husband's new T-shirt and got him to iron my old one for his own use later.
The only thing I'm bummed about is that I was just finishing my second piece of vanilla cake when they wheeled the chocolate cake out! Sadly, I had no room left in my stomach to sample the chocolate one. Oh well, NEXT year...
Happy Birthday Canada from one of your many proud-to-be-Canadian daughters!
