Sunday stroll

A and I took the train into Vancouver's Chinatown..I just love that place..started going when I was 16..thought it was the most exotic place ever..wandered..some of the stores have shut down due to the downturn in the economy..still the same smells and sights of pork and duck hanging in the windows, and the dried everything, like shrimp, mushrooms, every kind of fish imaginable..stopped in a number of little shops, bamboo, baskets, and calligraphy supplies..I purchased a stone stamp with the Chinese characters "Love for Peace"..sounded lovely..came home and we had lemon chicken and potato salad..cheers everyone...hope you had a lovely week-end!!

Beginnings..Feb 09 and I have decided that yes I new motto..thanks Obama..went out with CF to her meeting and while waiting walked in bright sunshine in New Westminster...old shops, boarded shops, smelly, broken-down, rising up and old-new and new-old like Kiss of a Frog..lovely new old fashioned dress for little girls..funny how you are sentimental about things that i wouldn't wear when I was that age..CF aqnd I had coffe and shared a yummy choc torte at the Vienna calories when you share...easier to help her be more more assertive when i am chicken little in disguise!!

was asked to join as a DT member of "christmas cards all year round"... the ladies have been very encouraging and it does good to start the year with something new and pleasing..thanks girls..bybyby for now
