Not Freezing Yet and our All You Can Eat Gluttony
So far so good we are not freezing yet during our Canadian vacation, which is surprising after being spoiled by tropical weather the last 8 years. Yesterday morning we took the dogs for a nice nature walk at the conservation park across from our friends house. It was nice to see that a good chunk of land was untouched by the concrete jungle.
We ended up going on a short shopping trip before dinner, Monique wanted to bring me to the mall where my mom used to have a cosmetics shop and to new Asian grocery store called Oceans so I could restock on more iced coffee. We got mall head fast and were overwhelmed by choices so other than a sim chip for Paul’s phone and a phone case for mine we did not bother with anything else. At Oceans I was in heaven and told everyone they could lock me up there for 24h and I would eat my way around the store.
Of course what’s a vacation without totally pigging out on all the things you cannot get where you live. We decided to call a group dinner and our friends Monique and Joanne were great about working together organizing everything for an all you can eat buffet at the Mandarin. I knew Monique would choose the one in Brampton because it has giant fish tanks which are always fun to watch.
We ended up with about 15 people and had a great time catching up and stuffing ourselves silly. I put my bet on Greg Monique’s boyfriend and he won the eating contest going through 10 plates, I can in a not so close second at 5 plates of food.
When it came time for dessert Paul asked why I was loading up on fruit of course my immediate reply was “have you seen the price of strawberries in Belize.”
Today we are heading to our 3rd destination in 3 days my mom and step dad Norm’s house. We will overnight and from there we will head out to Paul’s Parent’s farm for a few days. We will not likely have internet there so I will be officially on blog break.
