365 Days of Blessings – Day 78 – Grandma’s Bed & Breakfast (when Grandma’s outta the country!)


On our return from Sudbury this week-end, we stoppped in at Grandma’s in Toronto.  As hubby had Monday off and we planned on heading to the zoo, it was the perfect place to bed down for a couple of nights.

We arrived, unpacked, and opened the fridge (pretty much in that order).  It was BARE!  Not a thing but a hunk of cheese and a bit of cream.  Thankfully we had stopped for souvlaki take out and had dinner in the bag.  Consoled ourselves with the keurig k-cups instead and went to bed.

Woke up on Monday.  Headed to kitchen.  Gave Poppet a hunk of cheese and Lemon heart-shaped cookies for breakfast.  Had a Keurig.  Had some more cookies for snack.  Got in the van and headed to the zoo.

Stopped at Wimpy’s on the way to the zoo for Lunch (or kinda a real breakfast).  Ate some eggs and toast.  Had some coffee.  Headed to the zoo.

Walked around for 3 glorious hours.  Got in the van.  Headed back to Grandma’s.  Opened the fridge.  Drat!  Forgot it was empty.  Opened the parmesan chicken we had bought at Costco the day before and baked it up.  Got some frozen veggies from the local Shoppers Drug Mart and enjoyed dinner.

Feeling peckish after dinner.  Nothing to snack on.  Finish off expensive lemon cookies.  Feed a couple to Poppet.  Put Poppet to bed, turn on Amadeus.  Have another Keurig.  Thankfully Grandma has an extra stacks of k-cups in the living room.  We restock the carousel so she won’t know how many we’ve had.  Mental note to self:  make sure to empty all garbages upon leaving so she won’t discover the stash when she returns home.  Don’t forget to clean out the cookie container.  She’ll probably forget they were there when she left (if we’re lucky).

All in all, had a great time camping out at Grandma’s.  Only thing missing was food, and well……..Grandma!

I am thankful for Grandma’s Bed and Breakfast

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
