Weekend Post-Mortem

We're hot, sweaty, sunned, tired and very well rocked... Opening weekend of Ottawa Bluesfest!

This weekend we got to see {among others, too tired to remember all}:
  • Yoav
  • Hole
  • Joan Jett
  • Metric
  • The dude from Supertramp - Freebird!
  • The Flaming Lips
  • Timber Timbre
  • John Hiatt Trio
  • Charlie Winston
  • Rush
  • The Swell Season {swoon, so wonderful!}
It's been awesome, but it's exhausting. This festival is way too long. 12 days is way too much time to devote to music and still work and keep your house in one piece and buy groceries and live life... With a bebe last year it was a relative piece of cake. With an active toddler who refuses to wear his headphones and wants to RAWK - another story...

Friday we rushed home and changed and grabbed dinner at Bluesfest. Saturday we had a family luncheon, then a first birthday party, then a much older birthday party, then another evening at bluesfest. Sunday we went for dim sum, ran some errands, watched a bit of the soccer game with friends {I was there only for the social non-soccer elements} and then back to Bluesfest. Now we sleep.

If posting is light this week, it's cause I'm dead from the rocking and rolling.
kisses, k.
