8am walk

Big party in the building last night. 12 am and we were bored (surprise, surprise) so went to bed. By 7:30am we were up and ready for a huge walk to the breakwater and around James bay.

Book club chez Shona

Last Friday night was Shona’s turn to host book club. She lives with her mother in a building very similar to my mom’s building (where I lived before being taken over by Matt’s loving spell). The 55 plus resistance is fitted with psychedelic patterned carpets, lovely plastic floral arrangements and cute elevator signs like the one shown below.

In true Shona fashion, everything was impeccable. The snacks were delicious, the drinks were at the perfect temperature and we each got a take home a goody bag.

Our next book, chosen by Carla, is Women in love by D.H. Lawrence.

Arek’s Birthday in Vancouver

Arek picked us up from the ferries and zoomed us down to Granville Island to eat at the fancy restaurant Watermark. Next, was an amazing show at the planetarium. Laser timed to the Dark side of the moon album. Truly impressive!
