Two weekends have passed since my last “Weekend Musings” post.  To be frank, although I cherish this feature, as it is one of my favourites and first — always fun to revisit them to remind myself what happened during that week — they have been quite time-consuming to put together.  But I miss them, so with that I have decided to continue with them.  Let me know your thoughts on the “Weekend Musings” feature.

p.s. Other features, include: Monthly Horoscopes; Pour Lui [post for the men who follow this blog]; For Your Perusal:  Fun Trivia, Tips & Information; Spotlight; Editor’s FavouritesStyle Notes & Suggested Reads

W E E K E N D  M U S I N G S ::  These last past three weekends has experienced a Bluesfest concert with my youngest daughter to see Iggy Azalea, which was absolutely perfect, a day at a local lake/beach spent with my oldest daughter and her children and this weekend past, spent with my youngest granddaughter babysitting her.  My summer annual leave will be taken in August/September, so until then I plan to go to Montréal for a weekend.  As mentioned in a previous “Weekend Musings” post, my husband and I will not be taking any major trip this summer, but we do want to take a long weekend here and there, perhaps to visit Ontario’s Niagara Falls wineries.
