Ostrich, Ikea and Lazy Days
Today was a lazy day. I woke up at 10am in an array of stuffed animals, all frogs bought for me by my guy, the Frog Prince himself. I dragged my butt out of bed and brewed coffee while watching the crazy antics of the women from The View. Apparently, Scrabble UK is making a special edition allowing proper nouns. Luckily Hasbro, owners of Scrabble in North America, will not alter the rules.... Thank You.
After two cups of java and an Internet search of info on the show 24, last season ya know, my Prince showed up to take me to lunch. Locus on Main Street and King Edward Avenue is a great place for brunch, lunch, dinner, drinks, anything. He had the bison scrambler with chilis while I had the lunch special - ostrich pearl stuffed with mushrooms, topped with garlic pesto butter, sothered in jus and served with corn, baby zucchini, green onions and carrots. Yummy! Fresh squeezed OJ too. Mmmm. If you get a chance to go to Locus, please do! Deliscious!
After our gourmet brunch we decided the weather was too bizarre to chance an outdoor activity, so we drove out Richmond and toured around Ikea. I love going there to open and close the kitchen drawers and cabinets, in awe of the storage saving surprises in every hidden cavity of each layout. Unfortunately I had no real need for anything, so the drama, focus and passion of shopping in Swedenland was lost. I spent under $5 on 4 bowls for my cat's food and a funnel set for my guy. He spent half that on 2 hotdogs and a drink afterwards, the prize for making it through the zigzaging route in the jungle of teak and pine assembled furniture.
The next trip was a surprise. He was going to buy me something that I needed but I wouldn't buy for myself. he drove to Oakridge Mall and walked me through the aisles and finally brought me to the memory foam pillows. Surprise! He bought me a
pillow for my head since his pillows seem to rack my neck when I sleep over. They were on sale which was even better! So he bought a bigger one for himself.
Now, after a quick trip to Buy Low Foods for dinner food, we sit on his couch as he naps and I blog. Lazy lazy lazy days. Yawn.
