Thursday and Friday May 27 & 28, 2010


Not as hot today and lots of cloud; The sherbet didn't agree with me, I felt nauseated for the latter part of the night so took it easy this morning and mostly stayed in bed.

This afternoon we went out, I walked around downtown a bit to see some stores. Gordon went in search of a Smiths Falls baseball cap. He didn't find one but did find a little touristy store called Spotlight on the Rideau with crafts, paintings and photography that sells your photos on commission. He's thinking this is a possible way of promoting his photography in the area.

Some pretty irises in someone's garden along the sidewalk

This is Davidson's Courtyard in downtown Smiths Falls

I didn't feel like cooking so tonight we went to a local downtown restaurant called Gerbo. I called first to be sure they could accommodate our finicky stomachs and spoke to one of the cooks. They were very accommodating. I told the waitress of our problem when we went in and when Gordon ordered minced steak. She came back and told him it had bread crumbs in it. We had great service. The food was ok but not great. But I didn't have to cook it.

Afterward we went to the Country Fair Mall as I had seen some side tables for the living room but we decided they weren't what we wanted. I did get another set of cutlery as we run out quickly with the dishwasher. I don't like to run it unless it's full. So, I need more dishes too! My sister has a set of good dishes that I had given to her for my nephew when we went on the road but they got a ton of stuff for their wedding so she's going to give them back to me. The only problem with them is they aren't good in the microwave as they have a gold line around the outside of the plate. I have put them in the dishwasher before though.

Friday was mostly cloudy with a few sunny periods in the afternoon. It wasn't nearly as warm as it has been but still warm enough.

This morning was the first morning I've gone for my walk in about a month. I've missed it but my shoulder seemed to bother me when I was walking. I cut it a bit short but it was nice to get out.

After that and breakfast, I got my passport form ready to go, gathered up some errands that I had to do in town and after lunch I went first to downtown Smiths Falls to get some photocopies and mail my passport. I had to fax some things and I wanted to do a bit of looking around downtown. I checked out some stores and the two thrift shops. I managed to buy a couple of things there. I got two small Corelle ramekins for heating stuff up at one store and a wooden napkin holder at the other one. Penny is starting to rub off on me. LOL

After that I went to Walmart for some things. I was also looking for some annuals to plant in the bed at the front of the house but I wanted red petunias and they didn't have any. Next stop was Canadian Tire, ditto for them so I went to Gemmell's Nursery and got some. Now they're planted.

While I was out my order came from my Scotia Rewards. I had ordered a Nano ipod for me and am ipod dock. So now I have something else that I need to learn how to use.

    Who, ME?
    The hunt, and finding surprising bargains, is part of the entertainment.
    Never know what you will find. I have found real treasures, and the sellers didn't know what they had.
    Happy Hunting, Penny, TX
