It’s Friday!!!

Another busy week, almost in the books!!  I’ll honour this particular Friday with a smattering of my random thoughts…

  • It made me a very happy girl on Wednesday night when Phillip Phillips was crowned the new American Idol.  I mean, just look at this guy…and his sound is  like a cross between Dave Matthews, Damien Rice, and Mumford & Sons.  His new single, “Home”, is the best single I’ve ever heard come out of an Idol winner.  Seriously, what’s not to like?!

  • I had heard several times during the AI competition that Phil was sick a lot of the time, battling kidney issues.  But word broke after he was named the winner that he actually underwent eight surgeries during the competition.  EIGHT!!  Imagine, going on to win after going through all of that?  A special guy, I tell ya…
  • Tomorrow is the 21st Annual Quyon Canada Day Golf Tournament, and I’m sooooooo excited!  It’s one of my favourite days of the year, and I don’t even really like golf!!  Can’t wait to to have a few pops, drive the cart, and then get back to the hall to work the bar or sell tickets.  I’m proud of our committee for putting on one of the best golf tournaments in the area, and raising money for our fireworks and Canada Day Celebrations!!  Looking forward to seeing everyone out on the course tomorrow! :)
  • I bought my very own first set of (cheap) wine glasses about a month ago.  They have been sitting on my dining room table ever since, still in their box.  I need to crack into them, like, ASAP.  The Wild Vines is calling my name…
  • I’m craving pizza.  Like, craaaaaaaving it.

  • Almost two weeks into it, and I’m still not finished Fifty Shades of Grey.  STILL.  But, I am definitely hooked.  I mean, what is up with this Christian Grey??   I feel like I need to know more about him – find out his deep, dark secrets, and why he is the way he…is, y’know?   I feel like some of my questions are finally starting to get answered as I near the end of the first book in the Trilogy.  And oh, yes, I’m still picturing this guy as Mr. Grey…

  • I think I tell you guys this every time I go random on the blog, but I SO can’t wait to be an auntie again!!  Just over a month now until Amanda’s due date.  The anticipation is killing me!
  • One week from tomorrow, I will be walking in the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, celebrating survivors, remembering those who lost their battles, and raising money to help fight against this terrible disease.  Cancer made an unwelcome visit to my family late last year, when my dad was diagnosed with bowel cancer.  Several short months later, he succumbed to the illness after a brief but hard-fought battle.  I will be walking in memory of him.  I’m so looking forward to taking part in my very first Relay for Life – walking with family and friends all night long, and for such a great cause.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)

Will there be luminaries at the walk? For the walk here, people purchase paper luminaries that are lit at dusk in honor or in memory of loveds ones. When I worked for 4-H, we lit the luminaries, I think almost 4,000 one year--one of the most humbling and moving experiences ever.

OMG is that Ian Somerhalder as Mr. Grey? My girls love him, and I think I just had a cougar moment ;P

I have not read Fifty Shades of Grey yet, but get this: my eighth grader asked if she could read it for summer reading... :/ How did she hear about it?

I missed most of this season of American Idol, but I was blown away by Phillip in his auditions and was SO happy when he won!
