Yes, I'm going to choose to ignore strike stuff this week.
- We hit up the eagerly anticipated Forest City Flea yesterday and it was a great time! I didn't walk away with too many treasures, but it was awesome to see so many of my favourite shops out with so many people in attendance!
- This kid had a great time - even if I had to tell her to stop touching things constantly.
- All of the nice weather coupled with some big car shows in the area have meant that pretty cars have been all over the place! I saw that black Lamborghini again (I have to assume it's the same one and that there aren't two prowling around the London area) and I saw two Teslas in one day. Yes, I pay attention to these things.
- I also saw London traffic stop to allow some turkeys to cross the street on Wonderland Road. As you do.
- Vivian and Blair got some ridiculous bathing caps from my mom. It was worth it just for the picture.
- After a very busy week I had one of those evenings on Saturday where I crashed out on the couch at around 9pm and slept through until 9am. It was glorious and necessary.
- I FINALLY got to try the Goodah Gastrotruck at the Forest City Flea. I do love me a fancy grilled cheese!
- Vivian graced me with this original work of art on my hand. It's a cat, possibly one who suffered through some genetic modifications judging by the amount of legs it seems to have. Maybe she has a future as a tattoo artist?
- I hit up an awesome yard sale on Saturday - it was pretty stacked. It was hosted by Kim, who had previously owned Lovesick in London. By the time I got there, she was already knocking things down to 50% off and I cleaned up! I got this lovely yellow vintage Samsonite suitcase (now housing Vivian's dressup clothes while the old blue suitcase is now holding her doll clothes)...
- ...plus I got these two big frames, two vintage aprons, three purses, wall organizer, Hawaiian platter, and Adultrivia game. Total spent? $13.
- Jeff Goldblum is my new wallpaper on my phone. He's always a good choice.
- Vivian brought home a pretty deep library book this week - The Three Questions by Jon J. Muth, based on a story by Leo Tolstoy. It was a beautiful story, and I really enjoyed the art. I love how children's stories are able to break down complicated messages into concise, simple statements.
- My Totes MaGoats finally arrived! It's been put to good use on the picket line - dammit, I mentioned the strike!
- It's also been quite the week for North Lambton Secondary School alumni! Not only did I meet up with a former Eagle for some dinner, but I was also recognized on the picket line by another! It's funny the way things work!
Have a great week, guys! Hope you have lots of treats!
