We spent the weekend at home catching up on some household chores. We managed to sneak in a bike ride. I have a new mountain bike - it's not as cute as my commuter bike but it's much easier to ride - it has many gears and shocks.
We parked our bikes and wandered over to the Pride Parade. Always a joyous, colourful celebration of diversity. The parade was halted for about 30 minutes by a peaceful protest by some who felt the police should not be allowed in the parade. There are feelings that the police and military have more work to do on treating all people fairly and equally. We wondered why the parade had stopped and were happy to find out it wasn't anything serious. Nothing wrong with a peaceful protest.
Back at home we enjoyed a BBQ on our patio and made our weekly cocktail. This week was the Lemon Meringue Martini - our review is here.
It rained all day Sunday which was perfect for cleaning the house. I made some lavender Italian soda which is delicious. It's just lavender simple syrup, club soda, ice and a slice of lime. Refreshing!
Mellissa & James live in Edmonton, Alberta and enjoy exploring. Currently our Airstream is parked at a seasonal site about an hour from our home.
