Far from it!! I got here last Friday (Mar 12) happy to see Leon and very tired from work. Leon picked me up at the airport and headed home, although we did stop for sushi to go. The house was filled with flowers, even 2 roses on the pillow. Awwwww!!!! How thoughtful.

Other surprises included a firepit for us to sit around late into the evening. Leon’s mom had a welcome to the family party during the week. Sisters Connie and Hanne were there, along with Hanne’s husband and Connie’s son. We had a traditional smorgasbord (pronounced very differently) and Leon’s mom gave us a set of steak knives. A lovely day!

We had a Winterlude party last Friday where we heated up the pool and had a polar bear swim. Friends came for a cold weather dinner, served outside, along with a shot of Cariboo. I also got some lovely roses from one couple.

Leon’s son and daughter in law gave us a great outdoor set of furniture – Muskoka style. We spent Sat assembling it and staining it to match the hot tub. It will require another coat later this summer, but it looks great! It was also a great day for a few swims

as the pool was finally at 28C!!! Ahhhh!!! Leon and I do a lot of thinking and talking when we sit in the pool or hot tub.

So now I am back at home, boohoo! Luckily Leon arrives on Thu for a 4 day work weekend. We do plan to visit Le Nordik spa and enjoy a massage on Sunday. Lovely. The honeymoon does continue…
