Linking in with Monday wavers & shakers at : Sian
What news from the patio? A new low in spring. Dare I say that awful word - snow. Sunday we had air snow, which means thankfully, nothing accumulated on the ground. Saturday afternoon I had put all my annuals yet to be planted, into the garage as night time temperatures have been dropping below 0. Spring is really having a difficult time residing in this area.
Saturday night we went out for dinner with 4 friends & we tried a new to all of us Italian based restaurant, Casa Americo Bistro. We picked a location that was central for all us as we were driving in from different cities & which had a few vegetarian selections for me. It was quite nice, no loud music playing so no shouting to be heard. So much fun catching up with friends. We had all once boarded our horses together but not a single discussion about horses was heard - now that was new!
In the new issue of the LCBO Food & Drink magazine, I have been informed to stock up on the various types of Gin & accompanying Gin recipes, as gin based drinks will be all the new rage this summer & as they, the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario), are the authority on the subject, I feel myself well informed. The other thing they told me is that home made condiments is another newest rage & they included a recipe for pineapple ketchup. Pineapple, yes; gin, no.
On other patio news, I received a notice that one of our local two bricks & mortar scrapping stores is for sale. Of course I had to have one last visit/shop at The Scrapping Turtle before that change happens. I scrap lifted two new layout ideas from their kit creator, Kim.
While I am not current with the new season of Game of Thrones, I did get disc 1 of season 5 to watch - I borrow from the library, so it could take me a while to be current.
And my last bit of new is that we were given a brand new, still in the box, desktop computer system with Windows 10. So now we need to learn the new features of Windows 10. Bill Gates has assured & promised that this system will be supported forever.
Happy week ahead everyone.
