Outside, it is a gorgeous summer day with the Toronto Street Festival raging outside my door. And where am I?
And I spent the day with my parents making a cute little table, putting up a curtain rod, making curtains and then, after they left, cleaning, putting together a shoe rack and unwrapping my full-lenth mirror.
I'm pretty excited about the bright new curtains and my newly intalled air conditioner!
I even got to feed my parents at my new cute table!
And now Sarah is on her way to being the first person to see my place. Lucky girl!

1. tie a white streamer around your head.
2. turn down the lights and turn on a blue light
3. play some funky music
4. fill the top of some barrels with bright paint
5. bang away
Now you know what it's like to see Blue Man Group.
Quite an experience. I totally recommend it. What a laugh.

I believe the people responsible for the Logan Movers moving scam have finally posted.
Check out the comment here.
I think they believe themselves justified in stealing from me.
And they seem to have creative math skills.

Just got back from IKEA.
Who doesn't love that place?
I got a new table and cute curtains and a full-lenth mirror. I'm all set to cutify my apartment.
Now if I could just find the time to make this table so that I can finally have people over for dinner...
Sarah did graciously give me her chairs so I actually have somewhere for people to sit if they come over. Of course, I should probably get my air conditioner installed first so that they don't die of heat if they do come over.
For now though, my bed is calling me ever so sweetly.
And Jack Johnson is singing a lullaby.

Stratford is such a gorgeous town.
Alex and I were looking at real estate prices there and they were seriously cheap. I mean, a big red-brick house with a separate garage in town going for $170 000? It makes you wonder what's WRONG with the place.
It's so quiet there. No tall buildings. Some cute shops and restaurants. The necessities like Canadian Tire on the outskirts. Tree-lined streets filled with gorgeous houses with well-kept gardens. Theatre.
What could be more perfect?
It was a good day, although I suppose I was a little disappointed by the play itself. It was good, but I think I expected better, after reading the review. And, since I can get cheap tickets, I was going to buy another set for an 8pm show of something interesting. But sadly, Alex wasn't up to it. Which is strange because he LOVES theatre. Instead, we went to see Batman Begins. It is an excellant movie, but just not exactly what I'd had in mind for my Stratford weekend.
I am not very good at pressing for what *I* want if I think someone else doesn't want it. I really need to be more selfish. In the end, what I do doesn't benefit ANYONE.
At least I got to wander around the shops and drink AMAZING coffee at Balzac's, which I discovered also has a location in the Distillery District in Toronto. I'm totally going to seek it out. It was some of the best coffee I've had in Canada.
And we watched the Stratford Canada Day Parade, which was not the BEST parade I've ever seen.
But I guess once you've seen the Alliston Potato Festival Parade, everything else is a let-down.
And we spent some time together in the sunshine and managed to keep it a pretty inexpenive trip!
I think I'd like to go back next weekend. Any takers?
