showering with aberdeen city

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt
Yesterday we went over to Horseshoe Bay, to the Boathouse with my mom for brunch. It was really chilly out but sitting there on the water looking at the ferries come and go, looking up at the majestic snow-capped mountains…man it was nice. John hadn’t been over there yet so i thought while we have a car and a nice mom to have lunch with – why not get out of downtown. We also ventured over to the Lonsdale Quay afterwards to soothe a sweet tooth.
We had tickets to the Giants game last night and had to be home in time to transit over there etc. So at about 5:45pm I’m thinking we have to get ready to leave soon, I grab the tickets and realize– oh %^&! the game was at 5:00pm! I felt so incredibly stupid – we both assumed it would be at 7/7:30….but no… and by the time we hopped in a cab or a bus to get down there, we’d catch maybe 1 period. I’m reading this morning that it was a nice blowout for the Giants… would have been nice to see…gaw! I think we’re going to get tickets for Friday’s game since my sister was planning on going, we could arrange a car pool yada yada finally actually make it there…for 7:30.

We woke up at 9am (on my day off….on my birthday) because as John said jokingly – Looks like Mike Holmes and his crew were apparently commissioned for a demo this morning – right above our heads. I have no idea what on earth they could be doing. installing a hardwood floor? drywall? dunno who would need to hammer a dozen nails every 30 seconds for an hour at 9 o’clock Monday morning above my sleepy birthday head.

I’ve had a great birthday weekend, from Friday until today – and I swear I won’t blog any more about it hehe…but i still have 12.5 hours of birthday to enjoy – even though I REALLY wanted to check out the Museum of Anthropology today but nooo they’re closed Mondays 😐 So…now we’re getting ready to head over to White Rock to meet up with my Dad and his Mum for lunch.

Ooh! I need to remember to go to my local elections office this afternoon and make sure i’m registered. I didn’t get a card at my old surrey address and I haven’t yet received one here… so yes, it will be a productive day.

And now… I need a coffee…a birthday coffee with a candle in it.
