(Some) Weekend Highlights
(Not necessarily in order of importance.)
Wore my flip-flops for the first time this year.
(Summer weather in TO!)
Words spoken to me by a virtual stranger in an antique store:
“My friend rearranges her furniture as often as you and I change our underwear.”
(Huh? How does she know how often I change my underwear?)
Had a great Friday night date!
(Gotcha! My older sister and I chatted on the phone for so long we deemed it as good as a date. Actually, better than some we’ve experienced.)
My kids assured me the LCBO (liquor store) was open on Sunday. I needed two bottles of wine for dinner. (I rarely buy liquor and the LCBO used to be closed on Sundays.) Well, it was open but not until noon. I ended up waiting with a crowd of people for the doors to open. I felt like a lush – dying for my next bottle of booze. My God, they stormed the doors at noon! I did not join the stampede. Retained my dignity.
(Of course my kids wouldn’t mention the time. When are they ever up and out before noon on a Sunday?)
Quotation found in a book I’m reading:
“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”
(Oh, yes…I love that concept.)
Celebrated my son Ted’s birthday on Sunday. Lots of family, friends and fun. All the boys were home for the occasion. They are crazy dudes!
(Kind of like their mother.)
