Winter Weekend

Cold, cold, cold - but we still had some fun!

My school staff had a belated Christmas party last night at Fort Edmonton Park. We had hoped to go on a sleigh ride but the weather was too cold so we had supper together, played games, drank wine and enjoyed each other's company. Bob and I stayed over in the city (the hour drive home after a late evening is not fun anymore!) and then met 2 of his sisters and his parents for brunch at the Royal Executive Inn in Nisku. It was one of the best buffet brunches I've seen with a large cold seafood table, an omelette bar, all the breakfast treats you could want, plus beef, veal, pasta, turkey and dressing, veggies and meatballs on the hot buffet. The array of desserts was equally impressive. We heard about his sisters' trip to Cuba and generally caught up on the news.

Now I'm trying to get a head start on the week, between laundry, dishes and some cooking. The scrapbook studio is calling too and then there are the week's lessons to think about. I think the R & R is over! I hope you had a lovely weekend too!


  1. You are making me drool with all that brunch stuff. Yum!

    I'm so glad I don't live in Alberta. I couldn't handle the cold.

  2. Ya, that brunch sounded delicious!! Right now, I SHOULD be living in Alberta with the snow and the cold weather we have!! Not fun for this West Coast girl!!

  3. Sounds like a great weekend. Brunch sounded devine. Yummy!

    Have a great week.

  4. Yumm!! Sounds like a great buffet, and I'm glad you get together with Dad's family lots, too. I'm also glad you took some time to be together, just the two of you, after having kids around the house for the last month. :)

  5. I'm glad you had a great weekend!!!!
