Friday was a curious day indeed. Bdot worked from home as we had a Environmental Management and Landscape Architecture over to develop a drainage solution for our yard. He was a nice guy and I helped him most of the morning running lines and gather data for the plan. He seemed pretty confident that he would be able to figure something out. Hopefully it won’t cost an arm and a leg. In the afternoon I did some running around taking the car in and getting pet meds. Bdot was swamped with stuff all day. The hottub was a welcome destination in the evening.
This weekend we attended the Enjoyed some wonderful grooves from the Cuisine/Art event at the Alton Mill. We had tickets and could have went either Saturday or Sunday. When we decided we thought Sunday was going to rain and since the event was mostly indoors we wanted to the lovely weather outside Saturday. It ultimately didn’t matter as Sunday was beautiful anyway. *shrug* We spent part of Saturday on the shaded back patio dreaming about all of the things we would like to do on the property. Ho-hum. We passed on Sushi Friday night so we indulged Saturday. It was good but I often find there isn’t enough food. Hmmpt.
Sunday we spent at the Alton Mill. I think it was a poor decision to hold the event on Father’s day. Sure there were people there but I’m sure the Mill was disappointed with the turn out. I found it to be a welcome distraction. It is unavoidable to see Father’s Dad ads and media pretty much everywhere. As my Dad passed a few weeks ago this is the first Father’s Day without him. I don’t miss him more today. I miss him the same all the time. But the holiday does make you ponder about the past and present without him. Needless to say it was great that bdot took me out to the Mill.
It was a fun afternoon. We ate a lot of delicious food (props to Soulyve and Landman Farms), beer (Wellington Iron Duke Strong Ale was my favourite but there was some interesting beer from Beau’s Brewery which was new to me), looked at some art and enjoyed the jazz artists shown above. The stars of the show however seems to be the few week old goats. Other noteworthy mentions: bdot enjoyed the Live Kombucha teas and Speers Farms Amaranth’s beef sandwich was awesome.
I watched a lot of FIFA soccer off chip (I guess off chip? It isn’t off tape? DVR?). It is remarkable how much LACK of finish team Canada has. They generate a ton chances and it felt like they squeaked by the Swiss 1-0. It was an exciting game. The Canadian now wait and see who win between Norway/England today.
The NHL draft is Friday. Is it Eichel day in Buffalo?!
Watched End of Watch. An impressive cop drama. A rare solid pick from Netflix.
Another lovely Fall week in the books. We were originally suppose to be going to my parents in St.Catharines for dinner. But alas, the plans fell apart as my Dad wasn’t feeling well and it seems my sister also had a tough week. So this dinner (which has already been postponed, is postponed yet again. Sometimes a meeting isn’t meant to happen. It is just as well as bdot also had a very long week.
We used the time instead to run some errands and return some stuff in Vaughan. I’m not sure what was going on in Vaughan but the exits off the 400 into the city were backed up for kilometers. Very odd. In the evening we settled in to watch Dallas Buyers Club. We made a few tasty drinks mixing Goldschläger and Apple Cider. Yum! The movie was pretty somber. A thin, sickly looking Matthew McConaughey stars as a guy who acquires AIDS during the early days of the disease. He tries keeping himself alive with various drugs. Some work. Some didn’t. He eventually pushes back against the FDA for the drugs he felt were harmful. It was a remarkable true story based on the life of Ron Woodroof. It isn’t surprising the film and McConaughey won so many awards for the film.
Yesterday we returned, yet again to the Alton Mill for the annual Empty Bowls charity event. The hardest part continues to be picking from the many beautiful bowls. The soup was delicious. We wandered around the Mill and picked up some pottery we’ve been eyeing for weeks. A stunning fruit bowl (which will now be the centrepiece on our dining room table) and two mugs. We continue to drool over the Floyd Elzinga pieces.
After the Mill we drove around the exterior of the Forks of the Credit park trying to find an alternate route in. Curiously the locals have no parking signs along every alternate access point into the park. Seems pretty selfish to me. We eventually took the usual route down Dominion road. It was a great day for a walk. It was busy but not as bad as Mono Cliffs was a few weeks back. We met a few interesting people. A group of 20 somethings that were very lost. I guess they decided to climb down a hill offtrail and lost their bearings. They were going in the wrong direction almost in the opposite end of the park that they wanted to be in. *smirk* We hiked for about 2 hours. My phone said we walked for close to 12km and over 14k steps. Swell. Leaving we met two nice couples who fancied our pretty dog. We wondered if the cop stationed at the end of Dominion road is off duty paid by the locals. Seemed like a pretty boring day at the office.
Other than the Bills win it was a brutal weekend for my sports teams. Sabres continue to suck and haven’t scored in two games. Both of which were HOME games. I get the tank crowd but wow… I can’t imagine how adding the best tank result with McDavid could significantly improve this team. They are so inept. Seven McDavids maybe. TFC not surprisingly couldn’t even beat Montreal to keep any glimmer of playoff hopes alive. So… MLSE spent over 100M and the team still sucks. Bravo. Tottenham got owned in a very dubiously refereed game by Man. City. Ugh.
Are you looking for a solid FREE text editor for Windows? I know I have spend far too much time trying different editors etc. – finally – ending up at Notepad++’s door.
Aww. Forgot to mention the trip to Vaughan. Bdot wanted to return some clothes (at a store she should really buy stock from…) afterward (which eventually came) we went to Szechuan Szechuan (a perfect example of a good looking/ poorly functioning website) for dinner. By this time we were both so hungry we could eat the ass end out of a dead rhino hungry. So yeah. Food. Now. Bdot says we’ve been to SS before but I don’t remember it. The place is clean, somewhat fancy and the wait staff I found to be very attentive. Well… Our waiter was awesome anyway. We ordered, what we thought would be a lot of food. We always enjoy leftovers, especially from Thai and Asian restaurants. We ordered: Chicken Fried Rice, General Tso Prawn, Szechuan Beef (the winner!) and a side of Mixed vegetables. That poor Rhino never stood a chance. We polished off everything. We even ate the fortune cookies before we left. It was a tasty dinner for sure. A little pricey perhaps. I don’t think I’d make it a regular stop because of that, but for an event it would be worth revisiting.
It was a fun weekend for sure. Bdot and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary on October 13th! Happy Anniversary mon petit chou. To celebrate we returned to the Alton Mill where we were married. We always enjoy going to the Mill. This weekend wasn’t an exception. We lucked into visiting during Stonefest. With only basic tools there were teams transforming piles of (I’m guessing) shale into walls and art. It was really impressive. Each stone was cut to fit. It appeared like they were doing a life sized jigsaw puzzle out of rock. Inside we found the usual assortment of incredible art. Our favourite is still by far Floyd Elzinga‘s landscape metal art. We love his stuff. One day we’ll acquire one of his pieces! We’ll be returning to the Mill next weekend for the Empty Bowls event. We went last year… “100% of proceeds go to local food programs” and you come home with a lovely hand-crafted ceramic bowl and a belly full of hot soup. What a wonderful event. Before hitting the Mill we filled our bellies at Ray’s 3rd Generation Bistro Bakery for lunch. It was a bit of a wait for lunch but the food was well worth it. The menu changes a lot at Ray’s. I can be a picky eater but there were easily 4 or 5 main dishes I would have tried. I ordered Veal Meatballs stuffed with Mozzarella with Linguine in a Tomato sauce and bdot had Beef and Mushroom Pot Pie. Damn. It was so good! I wanted to lick plate the sauce was so delicious and full of flavour. The pot pie seemed like a good choice as well. The wife tricked me into eating zucchini by not mentioning it when ordering the Chocolate and Zucchini CAKE. (Edit: Not Rhubarb! And NOT PIE :P) I was wrong to hate on rhubarb because the pie was great. The food was incredible, we always enjoy Ray’s. We picked up a bunch of baked good as well. The cheese scones were good surprisingly however the white chocolate cookies were not. I found them very hard and rather underwhelming. Hmmpt. Sunday we met up with my sister and Brother in Law and their dogs for a hike in Mono Cliffs. We’ve been to the Cliffs a bunch of times but it has never been as busy as it was on Sunday. Normally cars are parked on one side of the road about fourteen or so deep from the entrance. Well… Sunday cars were parked on both sides stretching about a kilometre from the entrance. It was a zoo. I enjoy hiking for the quiet and being alone within nature. Well it was like being in a Mall outside. When we reached the summit of the walk, a cliff that looks over the valley, it was ridiculous. Standing room only. It was like being in a busy bar. *eyeroll* So it wasn’t the hike I was hoping for, but it is hard to blame people since was such a lovely fall afternoon. My sister et. al. came over for dinner after the hike. I whipped up some BBQed sausage and veg. We polished off all the food. I guess we were hungry. We settled in on couches surrounded by dogs and watched X-Men: Days of Future Past. It was a solid action film with a curious time travelling twist. Perfect some tired bodies and mind to absorb.
Yesterday we finally made it over to visit with our nephews. The hit of the day however was their new dog Lily. The puppy has a lovely disposition, very friendly and outgoing but not obnoxious. It certainly looks like she will be a wonderful addition to their family. It was a chill afternoon. We had a few drinks including the yummy Apple Butterscotch Cocktail and Guinness Black. Bdot ventured off with his sister to talk about knitting, I think they ended up on Ravelry for hours? It is understandable. The site is the most comprehensive I’ve ever seen for a hobbyist. I spent the afternoon talking about RC drones with Bill and watching Liam destroy cars on (I’m guessing) Forza Horizon 2. Dinner was personal pizzas. In the evening we decided to brave Homeland again. We gave up on the series a while back. It took the evening to get back up to speed on the series. We’ll be onto new episodes next. The job search has been pretty slow. It remains quite frustrating. Wow. My lowly Sabres are off to a heinous start. 4 goals for 14 against in three games. Ugh. I know a lot of people have embraced the tank but they don’t have to be as bad as they are to still get McDavid or Eikel. Sigh. Another long year as a Sabres’ fan. Joy. We aren’t sure what is wrong with our dog Tanga. She has had the runs for a few days now. We’ve restricted her food and we’re waiting to see what happens. Poor dog.
The Sabres woes continue. They are off to an embarrassing 1-8-1 start. The stench of the season is already quite pungent. Sure the effort has been decent on most nights, and they have dropped a lot of one goal games – but – wow… ONE WIN. NO HOME WINS. Brutal. I fear this is only the beginning of the suffering as well… Things will actually get worse. You think Vanek and Miller are signing up for another season of this? LOLS. Who is going to score when Vanek is gone?! Think about that Sabres’ fans. The suffering will be many years to come. The Darcy firing talk has also evaporated… so there is very little to get excited about as a Sabres’ fan these days.
It was an odd weekend. Bdot worked most of Saturday, so I did a bunch of housework to free up time for us on Sunday. We’ve been using hottub pretty regularly. It is pretty awesome to have the soothing benefits of hydrotherapy in your backyard. I’ve been eyeing the brochure from Hole-E-Burger for a few weeks now and we finally tried it Saturday night. Hole-E disappointing! First off, $10 bucks gets you just the burger… which is lucky to be 5oz. I was expecting a massive burger, like you would get at Jack Astor’s. Sure it was tasty… but $10… no fries (a large fry will ding you $5 more…. no drink… It just wasn’t good value at all. I can’t see returning anytime soon. Especially with better options like Cheeks in town. Ho-hum.
I’m having a medical test performed on Thursday. This test necessitates some annoying dietary restrictions. What a bother. There is history of cancer in my family (among the men) so not getting checked isn’t an option. Le sigh.
Yesterday was a lovely day out with bdot and the dog. We returned to the Alton Mill for their Empty Bowls event. It is a charity event where local artists make cool pottery bowls and local chefs fill them with delicious soup – all the proceeds going to local food banks. I think this is a great event. You take home a nice bowl and make a contribution to a worthwhile charity. Sounds like a win-win to me. After soup we wandered around and admired the art. There are always so many pieces would make great additions to our home. Not this time however. It was disheartening to see a few of the artist’s rooms vacant. It could be for any reason I suppose… Hmmpt.
After the Mill we made a stop in Orangeville for coffee. It is good to note that Starbucks in Orangeville is actually really close to Alton. Hello Oat Fudge bar. We also stopped to look at a few more stools for the kitchen island but none of them worked. It seems it will take longer than expected to match the price we want to pay and the look we want to get. The majority of the afternoon however was spent outside wandering around Mono Cliffs for a lovely Fall hike. I think we missed the optimal Fall colour of the tree by a few weeks… still…. it was a perfect afternoon to be outdoors. The dog ran around like a crazy thing and we took a bunch of photos. I’ve posted a bunch on my photostream or search it for Mono Cliffs. A few of bdot’s impressive captures. I don’t care for iPhones, but they do take decent photos.
It is pretty luxurious to be able to soak in a hottub after hiking all afternoon. Gah. What an awesome toy. The rest of the evening was spent doing more laundry and Sunday night TV. We are really enjoying the flexibility of having the new ‘NextBox’ PVR. The pausing of live TV, skipping commercials and of course simply being able to record stuff… So far it has been a nice piece of tech… the sound and picture also seem better than the previous digital box. *shrug* Also had to rebuild and reinstall W7 on my secondary computer… Not really sure what happened to it. On boot it would hang and never reach the logon screen. *Even on a fresh install* So getting a computer running meant cannibalizing parts and a waste of a lot of time. I did get it up and running eventually however…
While the install was going on I played a bit of Crysis 2 (PC). It is a very impressive game visually. The environments and settings have a great degree of detail paid to them. I certainly get the joke ‘does it run Crysis’ now.
It’s felt like a long week physically. I’ve been fighting a combo of the flu and allergies since Tuesday. I stayed home Wednesday, and I’m still feeling somewhat lethargic.
Today we visited the Alton Mill since there was a wedding going on to see how they setup. They set up in the back ‘falls’ courtyard… we had thought about that as an option originally but the waterfalls are really loud… it is an intimate location however. It is curious to have one venue with so many good options. The one drawback to the Annex Courtyard (where we are currently holding the wedding ceremony) is it is very public and close to the parking lot. Really anyone can just stroll on by…. *shrug* The debate continues. We also stopped by the Millcroft Inn and we spoke with the Hotel Manager who said if we stayed (which we intend to) that taking photos on the grounds would be okay… Normally it wouldn’t. I’m not really sure what they would do… but… we have clearance from the Inn’s tower to shoot. After a morning of running around we had a yummy lunch in Alton at Ray’s Bistro. I’m pretty sure we’ll be returning there in the future. We were suppose to go to Woodbridge for an Italian dinner… but we were both beat after running around all morning. And it was hot… and gah… zzzzzzzzzzz…..
In the evening we suffered through another poorly picked movie.
This time Bernie… This was a rare time I disagreed with RT, which has it rating a staggering 92%, the critics loved it… I don’t like Jack Black…so… I should have known better. I found the movie really slowed from the constant interview interruptions and the pacing was bad… and frankly it was just not interesting. I guess it was based on a true story… curiously the more Black played up his likable character, the more I disliked him. Oh well. Lesson learned.
Friday night we has BBB and her family over. It is bdot’s birthday on Monday so we had some cake and dinner to celebrate. Mmm cake.
Bdot has been itching to go golfing so we drove down the 50 to play the short course at Riverstone. The course is in a curious location. It is wedged inside green space that runs behind a subdivision. There are houses everywhere. A crazy person with a driver could do some serious damage. I guess that is why there is only a short course here, and the short course is very short. All of the holes were par 3 and under 100 yard many around 50… Still being the duffers we are it is very good practice. The short game and putting is a cruial part of golf so, it was still a challenge. The course is well maintained and the club house looks brand new… I think we’ll return to try the championship course sometime in the Fall. There were only nine holes, which was enough as it was stupid hot. The course is setup rather oddly. The first hole we came across was 4 then the numbers seemed to be jumping all over… we played 1 last… *shrug* We hit a lot of extra balls since the course was empty. After golf we drove over to the Starbucks in Kleinberg for a cold drink. Yum, seriously needed the cool down.
It is an exciting day for hockey fans as it is trade deadline day for the NHL! The Sabres could potentially be big players today as they possess some highly coveted pieces other teams desire. Will Darcy find trades he likes? The rumours around Roy and Gaustad have been swirling around for weeks. As I’ve said before… I’d trade Roy for a lemon Danish, Gaustad is more difficult for me to cut loose, as he is one of the few bigger guys on the team – that said, a first round pick would be impossible to pass up. We will wait and see sports fans! The decision to buy or sell was further complicated by the Sabres taking 3 of 4 points vs. the top teams in the Eastern Conference over weekend. Playoffs this year still remain a pipe dream so… *shrug* I’m shocked to see the Habs in last, no rioting has been reported so far….
Anyway… the weekend… somehow I managed to double book myself on Saturday with a massage and a haircut at the same time. *eyeroll* I decided to rebook the haircut, I’m not sure that was a good decision as my hair is starting to get pretty unruly. Hopefully my stylist will get back to me soon with a new appointment. This weekend was the final weekend our friends Kev and Suz will be in Ontario. We took off for Guelph for the goodbye party right after my massage. We decided to stop at the Alton Mill hoping to find a parting gift for K & S. We lucked out and found a nice piece of pottery for them. After that business was dealt with with looked around at some of the artisans at the Mill. We spent a lot of time look at rings at Gallery gemma. Bdot found a bunch of interesting options for herself including some three ring combinations and some very unique artistic rings. It looks like I’ll need to ask for a raise. *frown* I looked at the solitary display case for Men’s rings and actually found one ring that felt really nice on my finger – shown above. It was the first ring I’ve actually liked the feel of wearing. I guess what looks good on my finger is not what I thought I’d like. I liked the idea of a rounded, dark, thick ring… but rounded looks odd, dark doesn’t work with my skin tone and a thick ring also didn’t look right… So essentially the opposite of what I initially thought I wanted is what actually looks right. Gah. I think more investigation will be required… I do want something very unique and distinctive, I’m not sure the Mirell ring fits the bill. Maybe. *heh* I’m surprised this is such a tough decision. After looking at rings we looked at the art galleries and naturally found several impressive pieces… I think we will add Alton Mill gift certificates as a wedding gift option. *grin*
We finally arrived at K & S’ place late in the afternoon. It was immediately apparent they were moving. The lawn had a sold sign on it and there was a pod in their driveway. *Phew* *InstaSad* We hung out with them for a bit then drove over to the party across town in Guelph. I didn’t have anything to do with the planning of the party, I was a little surprised to find that it was held at one of K & S’ friend’s parent’s house… It was a great place but getting drunk in front of Mom and Dad wasn’t going to happen. It was more of a dinner party than a typical booze and music party. It was still fun. There were a lot of stories and memories shared of times spent with K & S by everyone present. My favourite involving Suz at a wedding and Kancho! Damn Suz. Dinner was amazing and dessert was cupcakes. I think Kev requested a special bacon and maple cupcake for me. I nearly cried. It was delicious. The Guelph friends pulled money together and got them a stunning print of the Church of our Lady in Guelph. The night wound down pretty early as K & S were getting tired by midnight… They have had a pretty long week of packing and moving stress I’m sure.
In the morning we had a delicious breakfast at eggcetra in Guelph. Finally a place that understands what scrabbled eggs well done means, also their bacon was amazing. Yum. After breakfast we returned to K & S’ house to meet Alex who is taking their dog Cairo for a few months as K & S adjust out West. After talking for a few hours there was a tearful goodbye. We don’t have many close friends so it was hard saying goodbye to K & S. We have always had a unique and very comfortable friendship with them. I’m sure we will see them at some point out West, but they will be dearly missed, we’ve had a lot of good times together. *sniff*
After getting home we indulged in Thai for dinner since it was finally open. My parents stopped in for a short visit as they were in transit home from my sister’s. (Thanks for the lovely blanket sis… it is beautiful!) We wanted to get a visit in since they will be in away for a month down in Myrtle Beach. Hopefully they will have good weather and good golfing. Fore!
In disturbing local news, a VIA train derailed in Burlington (the city I work in)… the cause isn’t initially known and sadly several VIA staff died in the tragic accident. Sad news.
I’ve decided to cancel my World of Warcraft subscription. I guess if I found the right people to play with it would be fun, but I never have… I still enjoy PVP. I will miss it, but it is the only aspect of the game I enjoy so I could no longer justify keeping my account active. It can be a fun game. I may return at some point but for now I’ll persue other more interesting games. For the Horde! I guess Blizzard will keep my character on ice.
Trade Deadline Update! : Huh! Darcy trades Gaustad and a 4th to Nashville for a 1st! I’d say that is a deal! Goose is a UFA at the end of the season, so if the price is right he could return to Buffalo. I’m a little concerned about losing some team toughness, and he was great on special teams… but it would impossible to pass up a first round pick for a role player. Disappointed that Roy remains a Sabre and nothing else was done… I guess the next deadline is July 1.
Whoa! Darcy wasn’t done! Sabres traded Kassian and Gragnani to Vancouver for Hodgson and Sulzer. Well… I’m concerned about the immediate lack of toughness… but Hodgson sounds like a brilliant acquisition. A strong, young, CENTER with great potential… I’m very eager to see him play in Buffalo. I’m a little sad to see Zack go… He is being judged a lot on his short stay in Buffalo. I’m not sure what he will develop into… but I thought he was exactly the type of player the Sabres so desperately need… A strong gritty forward who can drop the gloves if needed. That said, Darcy has acquired enough picks the he should be able to get whatever the Sabres are lacking in the next draft or trade the picks for a player. I can’t believe Darcy has impressed me. Again… time will tell on trades, but they look very promising!
Kicked off Saturday getting my haircut. I booked my next appointing… in December! Yes, I’m already booking activities into December. Time is flying by. When I got home my sister had called and was in the area. After some phone tag we decided to see a movie up in their area in Orillia. We had a short dog run in Cold Creek then continued up to Horseshow Valley. JP (my brother in law) made a delicious beef stew and biscuits for dinner. He offered me a Richard’s Dark. I’m not sure how I missed this beer. I used to drink Rickard’s Red a lot… Anyway, it was a great beer, clean smooth, no aftertaste and a sweet flavour… I’ll certainly be stocking the fridge with some for the Winter season. Also, it is much darker that the image on their website, silly photoshopping. Our choices for movies were pretty bleak. So bleak in fact I agreed to see a Baseball movie. I’m very fond of Rotten Tomatoes and their ratings and it reviewed at a staggering 95% so I felt it was worth a shot. So we agreed to see Brad Pitt in Moneyball.
Before going to the movie I wanted to change from my athletic pants into a pair of jeans. Well frack – they didn’t fit, and it wasn’t even close. Yes I’m aware I’ve gained a bit in the middle but wow… this was an eye opener. I don’t think this pair of jeans has fit for awhile but now they were ridiculously hooker tight. I think it is a mere pant size from 32 to 33/34 but still… it reminds of the effort that will be required to keep this aging body from gaining further sizes. Sigh. ‘what a drag it is getting old…’
Anyway Moneyball. I enjoyed Moneyball. In spite of the old codger behind me that felt it necessary to comment on every baseball stat mentioned in the film. SIIiiiGH… Yes one of my pevs is people who talk in theatres. I paid to see and hear the movie – NOT to hear you talking. So STFU. But can you really tell an old man to shut up without looking like a dick? I don’t know. I came pretty close to finding out… *cough* The movie followed the transformative season of the Oakland Athletics. The team has just dropped it’s three star players and had to find a way to compete against team salaries that were double or triple theirs. Faced with few promising player options, the A’s GM (played by Pitt) looked to an innovative (and controversial) new mathematical solution to be competitive. The movie became a curious underdog film. Pitt was very convincing as a seasoned pro putting out fires at every turn with both with his team and in his personal life. Moneyball is both a look behind the scenes of a baseball team and the into the life of a GM. The movie included interactions between the GM and his daughter which added a touching dimension to the movie. The daughter played by Kerris Dorsey was also impressive in her role. She sung a cute song too. The dialogue was well written and balanced with some humour. I don’t think a lack of baseball knowledge would hamper someone’s enjoyment of the various banters between the GM and other players or staff. As I’ve said, I quite enjoyed this baseball movie as the human elements stood out for me and made it engaging and at times touching.
Sunday started slowly. We debated the merits of the new furniture arrangement in the living room. Yes domestic bliss. I think this debate is on-going as I like the positioning aesthetically but functionally it sucks walrus. We have a big bay window and the biggest couch now is turned into the room with the back of the couch to the window. Bah. Unfortunately the size of the room and the size couches leave us with few options… Hopefully a better arrangement can be found so we will want to utilize this room more. Bdot and I planned on going to Alton Mill in the afternoon to confirm which rooms we wanted to rent for the Wedding. After one false start (read : we had a spat) trying to leave we eventually got on our way to the Mill. It must be the right location because we really like all the rooms at the Mill. The problem is becoming matching rooms with the parts of the wedding. This is good problem to have, we feel there are so many great options! I think after the third loop around the building we have a tentative plan for where we will hold everything. Huzzah! Even the bad weather backup room for the ceremony is stunning room. After wandering around indoors we wandered around the grounds outdoors for awhile with the dog. There is a trail that leads to the Millcroft Inn, a mere 10m walk away. We are thinking of walking over on the 13th. The day didn’t start off well, but I think it ended up being very productive.
Once we got home I got ready to go to Toronto to see Boris and Asobi Seksu. (More on this later…) B. took care of a bunch housework – thank hon.
