The midday feast- remnants from last night's tapas. Brian made the nicest freshest pesto ever- Sun-dried tomatoe, fresh lime, and jalapeno pepper.
What's the reason for this extragavant luncheon? Well, I'm glad you asked.
See this splendid wallet? I paid a big, whopping 25 cents for that piece of leather genius. It has so many fantastic compartments, fully functioning zippers and snaps, and a price to make your eyeballs bleed.
Which relegated this broken down has-been, shattered piece of wallet wanna-be to the trash can with the coffee filters and emptied chip bags.
And is that all, you say? Well, I'm glad you asked. One can't ever have enough chocolate brown bits for the Darfur bag project.... And one can't be too early to begin anticipating next year's ugly sweater extravaganza.
And no, we're not through yet. Nothing like some properly politically incorrect stories to listen to on the newly acquired record player. And that little pink wisp of wonder? its a gift for one of my favourite three year old's in all the world.
Will the wonders never cease? A fabulous sale on jackets, assuming that my boy will continue to divide cells and grow out of the one he currently trudges to school wearing in these sublime minus thirty temperatures.
And that's not mentioning the stack of books and games that Brian bought for his classroom.
Does a Saturday get any sweeter than this? Oh, yes. It does. For this afternoon, we will celebrate Brian's birthday by going to see the movie "The Mysterious Case of Benjamin Buttons", and then round it all out with a magnificent meal at The Ivory.
