Last night Gordon's son called him and left a message (Gordon was in bed) so Gordon called him back this morning. They have news. They're having twins in November. Our 7th grandchild will be the 7th and 8th! That's the first set of twins on Gordon's side of the family.
I was up most of the night with a sick stomach so stayed in bed most of the morning trying to catch up on the sleep I didn't get. Gordon had a scheduled appointment for a consultation with Dr. Tambay who was the doctor that diagnosed his celiac disease eight years ago.
By noon I felt a little better so we got ready to go in to Ottawa for his appointment. I dropped him off as there's no where to park a one ton truck. I headed to HomeSense which is a store owned by Winners. It sells dishes, bedding, some indoor and outdoor furniture etc. My main objective was to find a comforter set.
The only one I could find was a toile in black and cream so I bought it. I also bought a few towels. Their prices are really good on towels and they are soooo soft.
I was still in the store when Gordon called to say his appointment was over so I headed to the cash and got checked out. Then off to pick him up.
I showed him the comforter and he basically hated it. Since there's another HomeSense at Bayshore Mall, we stopped there and took it back. They had a different selection there and we found a set we both liked so bought it and headed for home. This comforter set also came with sheets which we didn't really need but we got them anyway.
Now I have to call Sears and get the other one canceled.
It's such a relief to be back in Smiths Falls after a trip to Ottawa. There aren't so many small parking lots here so not much problem parking the truck.
We decided we would have soup for dinner tonight so I made some cornbread from a gluten free mix that I bought at Bulk Barn. It's not as light as the mix I get in the U.S. but it will have to do.
I haven't used the oven since we've been here as it's been so warm. It was really dirty so I decided to clean it tonight. I love self cleaning ovens but they sure do smoke a lot and that really bothers my eys and Gordon's lungs.
I'll be taking some photos around the house now that things are pretty much in order. We have to decide on which of Gordon's photos we want to enlarge but for right now we have the pictures and frames that we've picked up at garage sales and flea markets. At least we have things on the walls!
