cottage on the lake

23 May

This morning started early for a weekend, because Vlad had a dentist appointment. We headed out together, as the plan was to go to friends’ cottage right after!

Breakfast had to fill me up until well after noon:

I love Kashi crunchy cereals. I haven’t met one that I didn’t like.


Cereal beefed up with rice milk and banana. And a coffee!


Toast with crunchy peanut butter and jam.


After the appointment, we drove to the cottage – it took us only about an hour, and not counting the pouring rain we caught at some point, it was a beautiful drive – scenic route, for sure.

The little cozy cottage…


… right on the lake.


Anyone know what these are? These are tomatoes!!! Well, young tomato plants to be exact.


First things first:

I was very excited about the yellow portion of this BBQ:


I brought few pitas from home – hummus + Boston lettuce + orange bell pepper + salsa!


Busy day!

We smiled…

… played soccer… some of us without shoes.


… ate some more…


… read… upside down…


… made new friends…


this is Winston, the neighbour’s St.Bernard/Bernese mix. I saw him over the fence, and immediately headed over to introduce myself. As a result, fifteen of us found ourselves running around the grounds with a stick, and laughing hysterically…


On our way home, we stopped at McDonald’s to get some water. At the cash register I glanced at the menu and noted that bottled water is probably the only thing worth getting here… On our way in, we ran into a woman and her son, holding three large bags of food and a tray with at least six carbonated drinks in it. That was dinner… for the whole family… :(

I took a picture with Shrek though.
