Gravity's Catch of the Day
It is Memorial Day 2009. Its been a very busy weekend, even with the hubby out of town playing at the Hollywood Bonspiel.
Saturday I went to Richmond, BC with my friend Jason. We had Dim Sum at the Empire Restaurant, close to the Marriott Hotel that I stayed at during the PIC. It might just be the best Dim Sum I have ever had. After lunch, we walked around a local mall for a bit, and made fun of the various styles of clothing that people were wearing. I always like to watch the really short Chinese women who wear 4 inch heels, but can't walk in them so they stagger around. I'm short and Chinese. However, I feel no desire to fake being taller than I am using spiky shoes. One: I'm so clumsy, I'd probably kill myself. Two: You can ask really cute tall guys to get things for you on shelves that are too high.
After walking around the mall, we went to the BC Liquor Store. One of the reasons I went to BC, to get a treat or two for my hubby. I picked up a scotch whiskey liquer called Amber by Macallen (A little worried thanks to the Scott's comment on Facebook that it will be too sweet). I also picked up a Glen Fiddich 15. Other than Glen Morangie, I really haven't had any experiences with them. Jeremy had a bad experience with one, and since I can never remember which one, I stay away from them all. This weekend, I thought I'd give it a shot.
On the way home, Jason and I stopped by Casa in Bellingham to share a potato burrito and spicy pickled carrots. I know I'm gong to get a lot of flak for that from my husband. However, I have been wanting a potato burrito for the last two years, and every time we go to Bellingham we go to Davinci's for philly cheesesteak sandwiches or the pizza joint by Jeff's or grill at Brian and Heather's.
Sunday I spent some time in the yard weeding. I also pulled everything out of my craft room. The rest of the house looked like something had exploded. I tried to organize my books and my crafts, but it is more than a 2 day job. I was supposed to go to a baseball game, but the person that was going to go with me was jet lagged. I attempted to find another person to come with me but failed.
Today I left my house early to have Dim Sum with my mother and sister at Joy Palace on Martin Luther King Jr. It was tasty, but just not as good as the place in Richmond. It was fun talking to my mother for a bit.
I then came back to mow the lawn and weed some more. While I was mowing the yard I heard a commotion. I ignored it for a minute or two, and then turned off the lawn mower. Turns out Gravity had caught herself a baby blue bird, and she was being yelled at by the baby's parents. By the time I got to Gravity, the baby bird was no longer with the living.
Back inside to finish a couple of loads of laundry and to frantically put everything back inside the craft room. Everything put a table's worth of paper's is back inside the room. I managed to throw away two bags worth of stuff - but alas, like weeding, it does not look like I made a dent in it.
I have a Serbian Potato Casserole in the oven. Jeremy is on his way home. I hope that I will not get scolded too badly. :D
