Days 173 and 174 — Discovered a new place for lunch on Friday. The department I work for took the OT team out for lunch as a year end thank-you. Very nice. The place we went to is Don’s Bistro. I was a little put-out when the Reuben sandwich I ordered came un-grilled, but one bite told me that it was all right. In fact, it was pretty damned awesome. (And I know my Reubens!)
The OT I worked with had twin baby girls on Thursday. They are approximately two months early and weigh about 4.5 lbs. each. Thrilled for her. I was really beginning to think there was no way she could continue to walk, let alone work, she was that huge. But Mom and babes are doing fine, so that’s tremendous.
Last night we went to the Transit Celebration dinner. This takes place at Ft. Edmonton park. It was a gorgeous night. I only wish my son and his family could have been there this year. Everything was open — not like last year when nothing was open. Tim and I strolled the streets, watched a short film about the history of Edmonton in the beautiful Capitol Theatre. A beautiful blend of state of the art technology and old-time theatre design. We even got to catch a ride on the steam train — the last of the evening. This gave us a place to get out of the rain and an up-close look at how high the North Saskatchewan River has risen.
Well, here’s hoping the rain has left for good for awhile. I bought me up a mess of plants and I need to get them in containers and in the ground.
