I just got back from Ikea. I want eight chairs. I picked up four, 'cause that's all they had today. I've been watching the inventory on the web and they disappear quickly. I figure I'll pick up the other four Sunday morning. According to the website, they will have more on Sunday.

They are remodelling. Ikea Montreal is going to be the largest Ikea in North America! I couldn't find my shortcuts. I had to follow the arrows, the whole winding path through all the departments. Man am I pooped. I was rushing to get there before someone else got them. Eight would have fit in the car, but it wouldn't have been easy or a good arrangement. Four fit just fine. I also picked up some Swedish meatballs and some lingonberry jam.

Yesterday I finally got around to buying some clear, heavy plastic to use as a table cloth for my antique table.

I thought the biggest IKEA was in Winnipeg taxlady? Oh wait, maybe that's in Canada...yours will eclipse it when renos are done?

I did a few shopping errands and now I'm sitting on my bum before heading into my short change evening/day shifts. I put a chicken in the clay pot for the family and smeared it with pesto and lemon slices. Its an experiment, lets hope it tastes good!

In theory it sounds good. Even delicious. Let them taste it first, and if the reactions aren't what you are hoping for, get too busy to eat. Or act full on the rest of the dinner.

I can do better than that. I'm off to work tonight so I won't be home when they taste it. LOL

That's what it said on the Ikea website when I clicked QC Montreal.
