Thursday - Warm and sunny

A good day.

I woke up  early this morning and didn't want to get up, but I did.  I went upstairs, had breakfast and then had a quick shower.

My sister drove me over to Sherwood Park with her for her eye appointment.  Afterwards, she dropped me off at Southgate Mall and I got down to the difficult job of finding "stuff". I detoured into a few stores, but made my way to Sears where I got quite a lot of cool clothes.  I did rather well actually.

I had lunch at Opa! in the fast food section of the mall.  It was Greek food and it was good!  I had Lamb Souvlaki with a Greek Salad and some pita bread.  Yum.

I did a little more shopping and even got my Christmas cards for the next couple of years!  I think that they are really nice.  At 3:30 I started heading towards the transit center and got on an LRT.  I got to Century Park about 5 minutes before my time, but my sister and her son were there already.  They had arrived 5 minutes before I did!

We drove to a Walmart where they picked up some stuffing and I picked up some undies and a pair of pajamas. Yay me.  We drove back to Beaumont.

My niece was studying for an exam tomorrow, my sister had to go to a hockey meeting, so I suggested that my nephew join me in making some paper airplanes.  I had brought him some origami paper and a book with me from Japan.  I thought it was a cool way to share some Japanese culture with him, plus it was an activity we could do together.  For the next hour or so, we had a blast making airplanes and then flying them.  We got into a bit of a war though and it was quite noisy!

When my sister came home, she cooked, I kept her son busy and then we all had dinner.  She made pork chops on the barbecue, baked potatoes and there was salad too.  It was a yummy dinner.

After dinner I chatted with my niece while my sister did some hockey stuff.  She is an interesting young woman.

I got a message from my friend about when she would be by tomorrow to pick me up.  And that brings me up to now, more or less.  I'll be away for the next couple of nights, so I might be able to update again on Sunday night, but if I'm tired, it could be a bit later than that.  Sadly for me, I'm getting close to the end of my vacation, but I still have a few days yet.  Come back later and see how my holiday ends! Until next time....

I never think about going to Sears when I go out shopping, but I've always had good luck finding clothes there, too! There and at Macy's, which I always think is too hoity-toity, but turns out they have good sales racks to peruse.

Sounds like you're having a great time still, enjoying every moment!

I know! I did check out The Bay (a Canadian department store) they had great stuff but no sales. Sears was great and had lots of good stuff on sale. The staff was also friendly and helpful!

I am having a pretty good time and the weather has been terrific which is a huge bonus!
