I am grateful for a visit with my friend Peter at his art gallery on the lower level of Eaton Centre. It was good to see that guy, and always nice to spend some time in the oasis he’s created in the hubbub of the mall.
I am grateful for time unexpectedly spent wandering downtown for a couple hours. I went to Chinatown, near where I used to rent an office, and enjoyed a Lunch Combo B from Ocean Garden. That was a trip!
I am grateful my sons, and also for my gerbils. They’re all such goofballs.
I am grateful for BLT sandwiches, because they are easy to make for supper, and they are delicious.
I am grateful for time spent watching telly with Julie.
I am grateful for time spent watching a mama deer and her fawn in our front yard when Farley and I left to go to school this morning.
I am grateful for time spent with Coop and his Scout troop this evening. We went for a walk in Mystic Vale.
I am grateful for all the urban wildlife. In addition to the deer this morning, I spotted a rabbit, a couple of bald eagles, ravens, and lizards, all in our neighbourhood, and on our walk tonight, a parliament of 3 barred owls.
I am grateful for time spent working on my trailer project.
I am grateful for Farley’s baseball game. Cooper did announcements and ran the scoreboard. Farley ran in 2 runs and had some great plays on the infield. We ran into and visited with neighbours. It was a spectacular social event, after a dearth of social events.
I am grateful for family fun. Night part 2: Julie’s pick. We made nachos for dinner, then played a little bit of Myst, wherein we had a breakthrough and made it to a new, cool world.
