busy as a bee

* I'm Queen of the Slackers! Nah, actually I'm just having too much fun with a certain Canadian.

* On Saturday we did indeed go to the capital. We went to the Downtown Market, I oo'ed and ah'ed over the delicious looking fruits and veggies, and had a cupcake of the best cheesecake I have ever tasted! Mmm, rich and chocolatey - if we'd had a cooler I would have bought a whole one.

Right next door was the library so we perused the used book store and nabbed a couple of great books, which you will soon be seeing on Flickr.
Next we went to the MOAS for an exhibit of Asian kites (beautiful!) and had fun playing with all the hands-on science experiments. It was Harry Potter day so there were kids running around in robes, but we didn't pay extra for those special classes.

Time for lunch! We ate at Hopkin's Eatery - verrry tasty and filling (I had the BET and Glen got the Special).

In the afternoon we stopped by The Other Side and I got a couple of 50s women's magazines from December, so great cookie recipes (including prune-stuffed prunes! :snerk:) and decor ideas. Next door was Bali Hi, pretty furniture but not in my price range. Glen admired the collection of Hawaiian shirts.
And finally Vinyl Fever. I haven't been in a few years; I was disappointed that their stock of used CDs has dropped and they sell mostly new ones, but I did pick up the soundtracks for The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and Unleashed.
Phew, we were tired when we got home.

But Sunday brought more fun, in the form of a pool get-together at Gosamyr's! A few showers didn't dampen our enthusiasm. So relaxing, tossing around a Spiderman beach ball and floating around with magic beer. I managed to get a burn on my shoulders (you'd think I'd know better).

* The house is looking mucho better thanks to Glen's dedication. The bathroom looks like a real bath! ;)

* And now I've run out of steam. Later!
