We have been on a lovely long walk, in the fog, so nice

I then cut Steve's hair, then we both had lovely hot showers

We then got the slow cooker butter chicken prepared and into the slow cooker for dinner

Had some lunch and now relaxing on the pcs with a hot coffee

Listening to what is amounting to be a speed baseball game - five innings done already and the game started just 1 hour 15 minutes ago! Kinda wish I was in Chicago to see it since the weather there is sunny and 69. We've got a cloudy 85 and humid. I don't do "humid" well and am tired of AC. *sigh*

Reading far too many software reviews, so I can figure out which crud to uninstall. It seems that Toshiba Satellites don't come heavily weighed down with crudware.

Just got home from church and am trying to decide what to make for lunch. We have some leftovers which will probably do the job. Then I have a pile of rhubarb that I need to clean and make into wonderful things!

We have been invited to an event for the Vancouver Jazz Festival (one of the best anywhere) and an early Canada day celebration, but we haven't decided if we will go. We went across the river yesterday and to go all the way into the city (an hour or so) and pay a fortune for parking (for a free event) is not something I look forward to. If they would only come and play here......

Laurie, what about driving to Richmond, parking at the Casino parking garage (we paid $1 or $ 2 for all day when we went to the Olympics, I would call first to find out the rates) then take SkyTrain downtown. a day pass for SkyTrain is $9.75 ea. you save gas and stress and the parking fees that can top $35.00 for the day. I would love to go to the jazz festival and told DH that we need to make it a priority next year.

Steve is back at work today, it was a lovely weeks holiday

I am heading out soon to get some things from the shops, need to also go to the green grocer and the Indian supermarket, then I will be heading over to see mum as she is going away again, this time they are going to Queensland, they are driving and will be gone for 3 weeks, so I want to see her before they leave

Thanks, Bunny. We decided to stay around home today as my sciatica is really bad and I can't sit or stand for any length of time. There are festivities here in Surrey tomorrow or out on Granville Island again as part of the Jazz Festival.

I forgot we could use the train. Being a HandyDART driver (accessibility service) TB gets a free bus pass and on weekends or holidays his family gets to ride free as well. We could take the skytrain from here and then just one short bus to the Island. Hopefully I will be feeling up to it. If I have normal pain levels I can do the Sky Train to Vancouver quite easily and my cane gets me a seat so we shall see. Thanks again for reminding me of that!

Glad I could be of help and I hope you are able to enjoy some of the festivities. Parking downtown is a pita and way too costly :(

The latest I heard was they found a gentleman dead in his home with no AC. At those temps, a fan just doesn't do it.

In these parts, landlords and selling home owners have to provide a safe and working stove for tenants and potential buyers. It's the law! I think in parts like Nevada and Arizona, an AC should be an absolute requirement. It is in places like there that an AC is a definitely a life saving appliance.
