There was slightly less laziness today as Ottawa weather turned temporarily to spring. It was Douglas' day off so after a lazy start, we slushed our way around the neighbourhood.
Douglas got to have his biannual feed of liver and onions at the Newport. I got treated to a Heath bar from one of the three candy stores in the neighbourhood.
We hunted for a set of kitchen tongs while we boggled at the tone of a conversation between a young woman buying kitchen stuff and a young man telling her she couldn't buy this item or that item. You'd have thought she was feeding fifty dollar bills to a small bonfire in one of the store's chafing pans rather than thinking about spending fifteen bucks on a garlic chopper. We couldn't decide if the BMW parked in front of the store was theirs or not.
We ended up in the toy store buying this fellow for our nephew with a January birthday. We were sorely tempted by a Lego Troll Assault Wagon but set it aside after visions of what his soon to-be-walking baby brother would do with the trolls.
Then home for more lazing around, more tea, and more novel reading.
