On Saturday G surprised me with a trip to Fort Edmonton Park. I had never been but I really wanted to go, so once I was done working we headed off to the city. It was mighty hot and involved a lot of walking, but I didn't mind.
|They had fresh, crisp billboards from the 1920s up on that section of the city (It's divided into 3 parts, and then the fort)|
|The Rutherford house (1905) was by far my favourite. I loved the bathroom!|
|Pretty vintage hair combs and jewelry.|
|If it wasn't hot enough, we decided to go into the greenhouse.|
|Garret tried to steal pelts. Shhhhh....|
|G's brother and mom|
|Jan's AWESOME Ray Bans. I want.|
|Their coffee machine busted a few days before, so we found them a new one|
G and I also go presents from his parents and from his Aunt and Uncle - we are so spoiled!
|.... and coffee! G's two favourite things (after me, right hun?)|
|A vintage apron from G's Aunt, whose mom hand-made it. It's so gorgeous! |
"Auntie Nancy" (not really my aunt but I love aunts so there!) also made me an apron - she is too sweet.
That's 4 I have now. I need to bake more.
|Reading the card from Jan and Greg and looking like a somewhat elegant derp-head. |
There was Tupperware in that box (Jan knows me too well!)
This satchel is created from a WWII wool blanket and genuine leather for the sides and bottom. The short straps are from a military parachute pack and the adjustable shoulder strap is a military surplus gun sling. The interior is a sturdy tarp canvass and features a belted strap to hold your laptop snugly in place, two large leather pockets to hold all your gadgets, and a trigger snap clasp to keep your keys handy.
It fits everything so perfectly! "My" (read: my editor's) telephoto lens even fits in the pockets. It's a match made in heaven and is so heavy-duty that it's sure to last me forever.
We've rounded out the weekend by going to the 100-year-old Bailey Theatre earlier this evening to watch The Sound of Music. I had never seen it as a kid (gasp!) so I had no idea how political it was. Also, I was so confused during the whole thing about how there could be a five-year-old when the mother died seven years ago. Turns out the Rev. Mother said "several". My hearing is starting to go in my old age.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Only 4 more days until NYC!
