What a week it has been and a fast one at that. Dh has been on vacation and I don't feel as though we have stopped all week.
Monday we were at home doing "stuff," around the house; which for dh means he was down the basement.......poor dh.
Tuesday we had our yearly appointment with the bank. Funny thing is although we were in there with her for well over an hour, half of that time was just general chit-chatting on a personal level. Oh well it's always good to see her. After that we ran errands, got home for lunch time and then in the afternoon had a run down to Ikea as I wanted a small chest of drawers for the attic. We called in at Deblin's Linen's and I picked up a couple of queen sized sheet sets, two bath towels and two hand towels, over $170 with taxes. I was shocked at the price of bedding and towels. By the time we got home it was supper time.
Wednesday we had to go to Brampton, for a couple of appointments. Plus I broke the screw on my sewing machine where you change the foot; that cost $7 just for that???? Also ordered the counter top for the laundry room, managed to get that for $220 cash......with it being 30 inches deep it's having to be custom made, so did save at least $100 on that if not more, as it should have been $320 plus 13% taxes. Once again by the time we got home it was supper time.
Thursday we went to the market at St. Jacobs. We had a wonderful time and I stocked up on a pile of veggies. I got butternut squash at $1.25 each, a huge cabbage at $1.50, even picked up two bunches of leeks for $1 a bunch. The only thing that puzzled me and maybe you know the answer. People were wandering around with huge bags of red peppers, what are they going to do with them? Met a woman from church which was so funny, as everytime I go to Zehrs I seem to meet her as well!!! Once again it was supper time by the time we got home.
Friday we had planned on having a day in the house, but dd called on Thursday night to say her wedding dress was ready, could we come with her to pick it up.........of course we would be there. As the store was in the "Greek town," part of the city and we had no idea how long it would take us to get there, we set off after lunch. We had a look around the stores, as it is a very interesting part of the city on the Danforth until dd came.
Anyway dd picked her wedding dress, gorgeous but too big. So we then went to the dressmakers to give it to her to alter; the bridal store does not do on site alterations, which was a bit unusual. However the alterations store had a number of bridal dresses from the same store there waiting to be altered, so I guess that's a good thing?
Went to drop dd off at her home and then headed home, which was a total pain, as Friday night at rush hour is a nightmare. Finally got home at 7pm. I do not know how folk commute along the 401 everyday, it would drive me potty. We didn't even go up the 400 as that is normally a parking lot, so went up the 427, which wasn't much better but at least it was moving.
So here we are on Saturday morning. We, or at least I am not leaving the house today. I need to catch up with laundry. The house looks as though a bomb has dropped in it. I need to cut the grass and generally take a breather.
We have another busy week ahead of us this next week as well and although it is all planned out what we are going to do, I should watch out for any unexpected things to happen!!!
Enjoy your weekend,
