We just got back from shopping. We picked up a big bottle of Amarula and seven bottles of rosť. The SAQ (provincial liquor store) is having a long weekend sale of 10% off on all rosť wines.

I also finally got a new laptop. w00t!

What am I doing?

Well, I'm finishing up things for Glenn's birthday tomorrow. The cake layers are cooling; I've made the base for the homemade vanilla ice cream to go on top; I'm about to wrap his presents and will soon get the ingredients together for his special birthday dinner. Want tomorrow to be a relaxing day and to be able to spend time with him rather than being distracted by even minor preparations.

Just finished lunch and getting ready to fill some deviled eggs for this afternoon's gathering.

Enjoying a cup of tea in my new studio/office with Violet curled up beside me! It is still rough around the edges, but the furniture is all in and I have internet!

Oh, and I am trying to figure out how I can get to Andy's before all those deviled eggs are gone! Yum!

I got a Toshiba. Not only did I have to make sure that it had a full sized numeric keypad, I discovered that I had to make sure there was an indicator for numlock and for caps lock. I wonder if there is something else I should have been looking for that I would expect to be standard.
