Day 140 – April 28, 2011

This morning there was sunshine!!!

Dusty made sure to enjoy it as much as he could

I looked at the forecast for today and saw that there would be rain in the afternoon. I said “SCREW YOU, RAIN!” and wore a dress. Man, I guess I should’ve looked closer at the wind icons because it was super windy when I went out. I wore my parka so I was okay… At work, we waited for IS to come in as ND wanted to go for breakfast. I’d already had breakfast but went along anyway. I was putting my coat on when ND said we were just going to the cafeteria downstairs, so I left it behind. Once we were downstairs, I saw IS’ car out the front door and ND said we were going to McD’s. I expressed concern at the fact that I was wearing a dress and ND said I would be ok. He was WRONG! The wind kept trying to blow up my dress!! Anyway, we made it there and back without incident ๐Ÿ˜€

I had lunch scheduled with 2 people who started around the same time I had – RA & TA. RA now lives in Boston and works out of the same office I used to; she was in town for a few days. TA still works out of the Mississauga office. They had lunch brought in and had a very short lunch. It was good to catch up though ๐Ÿ™‚

In the evening, we hung out at home for a bit before we headed to dinner. My mom has this strange way of flicking the birds.

Angry Birds look awesome on the iPad

We had to teach her how to do it properly.

Then, we all went to another one of my favourite restaurants – The Pickle Barrel.

The parents

The girls - My mom's not that pale.. she was just really close to the flash

The drinks were huge!!

I had the mini burgers with goat cheese and smashed potatoes

It was all really good and we had a great time ๐Ÿ˜€ This was my last dinner w/the family for this trip ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Day 116 – April 4th, 2011

Today, before I got into the office, I got a text from a coworker from Boston. He was in town doing New Hire training and asked if I wanted to do lunch. I said sure and we went for burgers at Mighty Fine. I think I got him hooked! After work, I took an afternoon nap and got a text from EE telling me her, TG & WT were going to Woodrow’s for drinks. Yup.. drinks on a Monday, but I figured “what the heck?!” and went.

Drinks plus TG creepin'

TG wanted to creep in with his chicken wing, so I let him be in it

Earlier, JR+MV were there and some new people (to me)ย a guy from the kickball team, a girl that WT works with and the girl’s friend. also. It was a fun way to start the week ๐Ÿ™‚

Day 19 – December 28, 2010

Today, I worked for a while and then my parents, sister, and I went for lunch to celebrate my mom’s birthday which is the first week in January. We usually have a dinner just before I leave but my sister is working nights starting tonight so we opted for lunch today. The place we ended up at was Moxie’s! We always take photos but I guess I didn’t take photos of my parents with my camera even though I thought I did; I must’ve taken them with my mom’s camera.

Sisters in Black Part Deux (this time with white and grey!)

My dad's Caesar, my Mango Margarita, D's Raspberry something Margarita and I forgot what kind of margarita my mom had

I forgot to take photos of the food… it was all really good! After lunch, D went on her way and we stopped at Future Shop (similar to Best Buy) to get my dad an external hard drive so he can copy his stuff onto that and delete it from my mom’s iMac.

Future Shop.. yes, it's a Canadian company.. well it was, then it was bought by Best Buy

It was snowing a tiny bit when we left Moxie’s but I couldn’t really take a photo because the flurries were so fine, so after we came out of Future Shop, I took a photo.

Only way you could really see the snow flakes

Buh-bye Moxie's! {Yes the weather has been crappy!}

After we got home, I took a nap with Buster, and then I helped my mom with the iPhone.. I loaded music on it, installed a few apps, and taught her how to use it. ย It isย now working well with the Canadian SIM card and she was very happy ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m gonna go give the neighbour’s cat some food so he will leave. He’s been hanging around on the window sill for almost an hour and I figured it’d go away if I didn’t feed it, but it didn’t.
