Happy Days

I realize I have been quite lax with the blog in the past few weeks. I also haven't had much time to read or leave comments on my favourite blogs. My newest student and I have been quite busy and for some reason, this September has been the most popular month for us having friends and family visit us on the island.

My aunt and uncle were up for nearly a week and they just returned to Montreal yesterday. Today, some friends are coming up for a few days. Sunday, my cousin and his girlfriend are coming from Montreal for a week. Monday, a friend of mine from England is coming for two weeks. The day after my friend from the UK leaves, one of my dearest friends from college and university will be coming up. Though I'll be teaching during the day, I'm sure we'll all have a lot of fun. I just love having company. Don't get me wrong--I love having "me time" and doing my own thing, but I certainly thrive in social gatherings. There's just something so warm and happy in having a house full of people. I always miss my friends and family when they leave. I miss them a lot!

These past few weeks have certainly been happy days for us and I'm sure the next few weeks will be too.

Before I sign out, do you remember this song from this show?

Hey! It's more important to have a LIFE to blog about. You go, have fun! All of that visiting time sounds fun, but exhausting too!

Have a great time with your friends and family!

It's great to have all those visitors; and with your student and the farm... I'm constantly amazed that you find the time to blog! I love it every time you have people over and you put together your great photojournals. Feels like I'm one of your visiting relatives :). And, yeah, I also grew up in Asiancourt LOL!

Happy Days used to be one of my favorite shows growing up.

Tuesday nights on ABC.
8 pm - Happy Days
8:30 pm - Laverne and Shirley
9:00 pm - Three's Company

Looking back on it, those shows had a lot of sexual innuendo (especially the last one) - well it was a bit innocent by today's standards. If you think about it, the Fonz was a manwhore. I never liked Chachi Arcola. "Wah wah wah".

Now does anyone remember Potsie Webber singing 'Pumps Your Blood'? Now that was a cool song! ha ha

Sounds like you had a great time with your family and friends visiting you.
