Happy Canada Day!
Yes, I know it was yesterday but better late than never. I spent it doing some weeding and watching the festivities in Ottawa. I am something of an Anglophile so I totally love Kate (or should I be calling her Catherine?) and Wills. Her maple leaf fascinator was also totally adorable, but I wonder how it manages to stay on.
I was walking home from work the other day in the blazing heat when I spotted a little baby groundhog taking a siesta underneath a bush. I whipped out my iPod camera to capture the cuteness; I think the lady behind me though that I was nuts.
Sometimes, when I am having a rough day at work, I flip through my calendar of cute dogs and try to focus on the cuteness so as to decompress.
Why must heirloom tomatoes be so expensive? Those four tomatoes cost almost 6 bucks. And it’s summer here! Ouch. Want to see what 125 dollars worth of groceries looks like?
(Ignore the gigantic container of olive oil)
And this was a cheap week. I’m always amazed when I read other blogs and see that people only spend 75$ a week on food. Usually we average 175$-225$. I might not envy the American health care system, but I sure would love to have their food prices!
