Getting ready for the long weekend

Just a short post as we are heading to the cottage early today.
We are having my dad and Doreen, David, Amanda & Tom, Sharon & Jim, all up there this weekend.
We are going to have some fireworks and enjoy some yummy food.
This is my MIL Cil's Blueberry cheesecake recipe. It is sooooo good. The container isn't the nicest but it travels well.

Her is also my MIL's recipe for broccoli salad. Yummy.
I am all over the place today.
1st I got woken up at 5:00am by some kids setting off fireworks in the back park.
Then ran out because I needed to do laundry and I didn't have any laundry soap.
Went to get a couple groceries and ribs for camp
Did some laundry.
Caught up on all my work tickets
Made my cheesecake...yum
Made my salad
Now I have to clean up and pack for camp. Looking forward to a fun, relaxing weekend.
Oh I priced out insurance for Ashley to drive our jeep. It will cost her $947.00 a year as occasional. She is not impressed. Especially because she can only use it when I don't need it.
Maybe she will be looking for her own vehicle soon.
Ashley also got that job that she interviewed for yesterday. She starts on Aug 12th.
Thankful Thursday
1. Family
2. Getting everything on my list completed
3. Happy mail...but I will share that on Tuesday
4. Internet


  1. Thanks for killing my calorie count for the day! HA! That blueberry goodness looks amazing!

  2. thats quite a bit for occasional driver.. because when i went to get my own car and inquired about insurance for myself, it was 1000 and year. which isnt bad..

    but glad she got the job :D

  3. Just catching up on comments but I think I have missed some as working away this week, so will have to go to your older posts but great you got your background back!

  4. YUM! Blueberry cheesecake is my favorite and that salad looks awesome. Wow, that sounds like a huge amount of money for an occasional driver. Is that common in Canada? Is it 'cause she's only gotten to phase 1 of all 3 phases? Congrats to Ashley on getting the job! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  5. Looks delicious! I'm baking a cherry cheesecake tomorrow morning. :) (Yes, baking...I don't really like the "throw together" ones you don't bake).

    We're heading up to a relative's camp this weekend, ourselves. Probably no internet connection. BOO HISS.

    Car insurance is SO expensive in Ontario compared to here in Pennsylvania. Found that out when we moved here.

  6. The cheesecake and the broccoli salad look delicious - even at 8:00 in the morning! Yum! Have a great weekend!

  7. I didn't need to see that cheesecake that early in the morning. Now I'm going to be craving it ALL DAY. Can you send a piece to New Jersey?


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
