Time flies...

I HAVE to share this good deal I got yesterday at Zellers.  It was Itty Bitty's birthday, and since he was coming for Sunday dinner, I decided to bake him a cake.  However, I had tossed out all of my gross, crusty, blackened bakeware, so it was time to replace it.  I had enough HBC points for a $10 gift certificate, and all of their Wilton bakeware was BOGO, and all Kitchen Aid skillets were $19.99.  The 12" skillet is reg $60, and the 10" is reg. $40.  The cookie sheets are reg. $18, and the round cake pan $12.  I got $160 worth of new stuff for my kitchen, once I used my SPC card (10% off) and the $10 gift card for $61.14!!!

And the cake I baked was delicious.  I sent the leftovers (only two pieces were cut from it) back to university residence with him.  I hear he had chocolate cake for breakfast.

This photo didn't turn out as good as I hoped.  I was back in Fergus last week, and this is the view of the Grand River from the staff kichen at the agency I was visiting.  You can't get a really good idea of how beautiful it is because of the sunny glare through the window panes.  Check out the window sill though - - that is how thick the stone walls are. 

I popped into the library tonight.  I had no idea Jennifer Chiaverini had a new book out.  Too bad I have homework tonight -- no reading for fun tonight!

Homework?  Yes - I'm taking a distance course.  It's called "People and Plagues".   It's an anthropology course, and I'm enjoying it so far.  I'm kinda freaked out about the amount of reading though - - FIVE TEXTBOOKS!!!  ARGH!!!

I went to The Royal City Quilt Guild last week.  Sandy Small Proudfoot was the speaker, and showed many of the quilts that are pictured on her website.  The ladies at guild were very friendly -  I must have had "the look" (I'm new here!  Talk to me!) because both ladies on either side of me struck up conversations with me.

Gibby Kitty is now living with me!  He loves Guelph too.  He's a purring maniac, and a big suck.  He doesn't want me to pay attention to anything but him.  I was texting Hubby on my BlackBerry this morning, and Gibby came and sat on my head so I couldn't see.  When I leave the apartment, he gives me a guilt trip.  Poor kitty has been traumatized.

I'm going to Elora tomorrow.  I hope the weather is better - - it's chilly and rainy today!
