Hi Mary,

What are we celebrating? Is this a Canadian holiday? Can I join too? How about we all celebrate the U.S., Canadian, and U.K. holidays? Then maybe we'll only have about 1 week of work per year. ;0) WooHoo is right!

Hey Mish..yes a Canadian holiday...we all refer to it simply May 2-4 but it is actualy called Victoria Day...after a queen....everyone used it as a holiday weekend to "kick off" the summer.

Usually the provincial parks won't allow drinking in the parks as it such a big party weekend especially ofr the kids.

Some places have fireworks as part of the celebration too but that has died down a bit & saved for July 1st (Canada Day)

Mishyboo, most people start their gardening season this weekend too!!!

I'm exhausted!!! Power washing the deck, planting new annuals, mulching etc., pretty boring stuff! But it looks so pretty now after we cleaned up!!!

Ready for the summer. Since we can't be in the DR, we'll enjoy it here!!!!

Sounds good to me. do you think my job will accept me calling in on Monday so I can celebrate your holiday too? ;0) Our next one is next weekend (Memorial Day) then Juy 4th so if you guys would like to use these excuses to call in, it might be acceptable. LOL

Thanks for the info. Learned something.

Gardening didn't get doen this weekend at this house but we did get the pool open so that counts for a biggy.

Since I worked Sat. it wasn't really a long weekend for me but next weekend I hope to get the yard work done...never rest for the idle.

Will work on the Memorial day & July 4th idea too.

With our July 1st being a Friday & July 4th a Monday it could almost be a whole weeks holiday!!!!!!!! whooo hoooooo

wouldn't you like...
