John W cooked us a wonderful brunch and Meghan picked me up so we could start our Bead Bop. First stop Rideau Art & Bead in Kemptville where we found a few treasures. Then to Canadian Tire and Dollarama and the Bulk Barn where we got some wonderful teas. We hit the road to go to Stittsville and the Dragon's Lair. The lady from Renfrew who has closed her shop had her things there too. We had a lot to look at and did not leave empty handed! We met John at Meghan's town house and he had a nap while we played with our beads and things. I did 2 Kumihimo braids. We barbequed small sausage stuffed peppers and Momma burgers which we had with a salad for supper. TJ came home and went to bed. We watched a movie and worked on our projects. Warm an sunny

Meghan's friend Robin joined us for the Bead Bop and we went to Canada Bead and Canada Glass and finished our Bop at McBead where Meghan works. Spent a lot of time matching cord and beads to make sets and now have lots of work to do. John went his own way and met us at the Pho House for lunch. Then on to Ikea at last! It is a huge store and we spent a lot of time looking and bought lots of kitchen gadgets, knife rack, garbage cans, jars etc. Also saw my cousin Eileen who works in the linen dept. We left Meghan at her house and hit the road for home. Stopped in Perth at Wendy's for supper. warm and sunny

Up at 7:00 am to hit the road by 8. Went to CW's and then to Annual Inspection. Kyrstin, Sharon, John, TJ (briefly), & Paul were there. Also Carole and her parents. The boys made me very proud to see them in their uniforms. They all did very well. Afterwards we went back to Christopher & Lori's for a BBQ and to celebrate Taylor's 13th birthday. We had a lot of fun skipping double dutch outside. I turned the ropes! Early to bed.
