*waves hello* Hi there, I'm back. Well, for a week - until we head off to Vegas next week! Busy times.
The weather at the cottage started out hot, then got really hot, then got really hot and humid, then extremely hot and humid, followed by severe thunderstorms with tornado-warnings-in-effect. The storms on Friday knocked out power over a goodly portion of south-eastern Ontario and Quebec and we were not immune. The worst part was having to boil lake water for dishes between meals - so time consuming! We coped with the heat by jumping into the lake at every opportunity. We even dragged the dog in with us - he was very nervous at first (remembering I think our late winter adventure falling through the ice) - but by the last day he was jumping in there with the rest of us.

I'd planned to work on my smallvillebbang
story while away but the best laid plans gang aft agley. First, my laptop broke (kind of - i can still use it, i just can't close the top anymore - long story). So I asked my sister to bring hers, but it wouldn't read the Smallville disks I'd brought along for 'research'. So my sister had to prove it was the disks that were at fault, not her laptop, so she went out and rented some movies. And the rented disks worked of course, so her best friend's kids spent the last few days monopolizing the laptop to watch movies. Poor things, they get so easily bored without the internet and TV.
Hope y'all are doing well and the heat wave didn't hit you quite as hard.
