Today on the last day of spring.

This what my blog would be like if I posted everything I think of when I am out on errands.


I went for a walk today. I had some light errands to run, so I decided to walk. (my part for the environment)
I walked to the bank, and as I looked over my shoulder, I noticed dark clouds coming in from the North.

I calculated how far I needed to walk to stop by work and (I hoped) pick up my forgotten umbrella. Well it started to come down as I dashed into work. I stayed dry as I looked for, and could not find, my lost umbrella. Being at work on my day off feels good because I am in my jeans and I can walk out of there as soon as the rain stops.
I continued my trek over to the farmers market with one goal in mind. Getting myself some very good sushi. It was worth the walk and the rain delay.
For dessert I looked at all the nice baked goods. Then I said to myself, berries! I paid for a Montreal trio. Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries all on the same tray. No topping, no sugar, no nothing.

I ate them as I walked through the park on the way home. Nothing reminds me more of the taste of summer in Quebec.
Enjoy the summer!

let's hope your "desert" wasn't dry and that you had very tasty berries for dessert- don't you hate it when a word can't be spell checked!

The great thing about blogs is you can change them as you see the errors. It's not like a newspaper where a mistake is forever. Thanks for the heads up. Wanna be my copy editor?

What a great day!
I sat in the office and tried to figure out stuff and then I came home.

It sounds like a nice day! And blueberries, strawberries and rasperries are the best! I love the taste of summer! But i don't like the big dark clouds on the picture!

I would have taken a picture of the sushi I was going to eat but I did not want the other patrons to think I was a nut

So you carry your camera around with you everywhere too?

My mom thought I was on crack when I whipped out my camera in McDonalds earlier tonight, but THERE WAS A BIRD IN THERE! An actual bird, flying around over people while they ate! EW!

Sounds like you created yourself a very enjoyable day! :) And the clouds in that picture look creepy and cool. I love storms.

Sounds like you had a lovely time!
I sat in school and watched movies.
Like Indian in the Cupboard and Harry Potter.

I swear those are the only movies we watch. I've seen them a thousand million times. All usually at school.

With an exception of watching Stand by Me, which is actually a movie I have only seen once an it's still excellent.

I love the McDonalds story Alana.

Alana in our local mall there are sparrows in the trees of the food court.
I think they got in while renovations were going on and they now thrive in the food court enviroment.
It almost seems natural to have them there.
So I am not the only one wanting to take a pic of my food eh?
lol

No, you are not the only one photographing your food (food porn, I think it's called). You saw the steak photo I showed recently. Mind you that really was porn!

Barbara said...

The difference is taking pics of food in public or taking pics of food in the privacy of your own home... food porn eh?
LOL
