After a huge home made breakfast of all kinds of country goodness, it was off to the pool to float like a beached whale...

It's been oh so long since I've been swimming, I had forgotten how much I enjoy it, I even kind of got past my self consciousness issues with being visible to people without my shirt. Somehow I just feel oh so vulnerable in that position...The one bit that I did forget was that I have no hair to protect my head, and apparently how to evenly apply sunscreen...humph...

So while my shoulders and chest are slightly burnt, there are some lovely white stripes from the highly protective 70spf I had used... but my scalp.. oh my scalp, is blistered like bacon! Overcooked bacon...

Anyhow, wounds aside we did end up having a lovely chat in the shade (but in the heat.. omg the never ending heat) for a bit, just my Father and I; before we headed back to the cabin for a bit of lunch and a nap..

Then on to family day celebrations where gifts and good humored were shared by all.

I got a BestBuy Gift Card. Now I just have to decide if I am going to use it and save up for a Wii or put it with my attempt to buy an HDTV... Right I am leaning towards the TV.

Unfortunately the evening was slightly marred by a lovely prize winning headache..

It has been truly lovely just being away up in the mountains though... away from the world.
