Our home and native land

After much anticipation, our Canada Day long weekend finally blessed us with some much needed RnR. The sun was shinning, the birds were chirping and the cottages were calling. Yeah, our team definitely took advantage.

Check out how the Workhaus staff celebrated Canada Day this year.

Their back patio overlooks Lake Ontario and the dozens of sailboats that were out because of the beautiful weather.”

The magic ingredient? Day drinking.”

“I celebrated my Canada Day long weekend the same way I’ve spent most of my weekends this summer, by going up north to a friend’s cottage. The cottage was on an island North Bay; I haven’t been that far up north in a couple of years so it was really nice and the stars were insane. We ate lots of food, drank lots of beverages, listened to a lot of music, played some dice, had some fires, went on some boat rides, got sunburnt, watched some fireworks, and swam in the lake, among other things… Overall a pretty typical but wonderful Canadian cottage weekend.”

workhaus-staff-celebrate-canadas-day-justine“Started out with an impromptu visit to my hometown. From there I let the rest of the weekend unfold… Which lead me to:

  • LOTS of dog cuddles and playtime
  • An evening excursion down memory lane at my old high school with two of my longtime friends.
  • Crashing a dinner party, with private fireworks for dessert
  • An evening out dancing in the Byward market
  • Relaxing by the pool side with some of my nearest & dearest <3
Highlight?

My mom turned to me in the kitchen while listening to One dance and goes.. ‘ You know what, I really like Drake…but i think he just needs a good woman, you know? I might consider him to almost be deserving of you.’

I almost cried.”

The best part was at the end of the night having a bonfire with everyone, music playing some Neil Young as we all sit back, maybe have a S’mores or two and bask in the beauty that is Canada.”

Then hung out with my dogs on Monday.”
