Day 205 — Spent a lovely afternoon with my granddaughter and my sister-in-law.  Went for lunch at Cora’s (not all that good), then went out to Salisbury Greenhouses (lovely place) and afterwards, ice-cream at Dairy Queen (always good).

Hailey was a little confused at first about why Michelle and I would want to go see a ‘green’ house.  We laughed and tried to explain, but until we got there I don’t think she truly understood where we were going.  Thankfully, Salisbury, like most greenhouses these days, isn’t just full of plants.  They had lovely furniture, gift ware, jewellery, clothes and ornaments.  We had too much fun looking at jewellery and Hailey modelled purses and scarves for us.  She is becoming such a charming and funny young girl.

Went for a walk in the evening with my friend Shelly.  Stopped by for a quick visit at my son and daughter-in-law’s place, ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in ages and stood talking in the street for a good 15 minutes.  I love living in a small town!

Day 97 — A quiet day inside away from the snow.  In the evening I went on a ‘date’ with Landon.  The last time he and I did anything together, just the two of us, was probably before he moved out of home.  It was nice.  We had a bite to eat at Boston Pizza (love those bacon-wrapped steak skewers!) and then went to the Rush game.  First time watching a lacrosse game.  Loads of fun!  It’s a loud, rowdy crowd and a great sport to watch.  Will definitely do it again.  Spending time with my grown-up boy was a delight.  Hopefully, we don’t wait 20 years to do it again.
