  1. Neighbor wants to go to Safeway. She has a car !!! It'll be a treat getting a lift to the store and back. FML have to miss my nap this afternoon.
  2. Smoked Ribs from Ben's Meat & Deli. A bit tough, but oh so flavorful. Also got some brisket. It is lovely and melt-in-your-mouth tender.
  3. The Wild Birds Unlimited store across from me has a seed and suet sale on right now. 15% off now until July 19. So I bought a large bag of Bark Butter Bits, and a small bag of peanuts and No Mess Seed Blend. Tidied up and replenished my Storage Tub. I think I will buy more product before the sale is over. Also scrubbed out the water bowl and put in fresh cold water.
  4. My typical salad, only garnished it with a few slices of Croatian Spicy Sausage. I am not usually one for processed / cured meats, but is this bad boy ever tasty.. ♥ Also having a tasty home made green smoothie for dessert.
  5. American actress Brandis Kemp passed away July 04, 2020 at the age of 76.
  6. A couple bunwiches with Dutch Edam Cheese and Hot Kulen (a Croatian spicy sausage) garnished with onion and cucumber.
  7. Can't help but think perhaps someone was desperate for some beauty in their lives. Doesn't make stealing right, but flowers can be replaced. Yes, this pandemic has definitely shown us the ugly side of humanity, but also the good side. The Wild Birds Unlimited Store across from me has had suet cakes and seed cylinders stolen from the front of their store. Obviously someone just wants to feed birds in their yard. Again, it's not right, but also not a big deal. They did find out who did it, they also ended up taking some plants in planters from the side of the store. Maybe all the social isolation has just gotten some people wanting a bit of beauty in their yard, and the company of feathered friends. ???? Probably acts borne out of loneliness rather than aggression or vindictiveness.
  8. A savory ground beef pita burek from European Sweetness Coffee Bar & Deli.
  9. Salami and cheese bunwiches with lettuce and cucumber. Had to use a couple raisin buns because my other bread was still frozen. Still very tasty.
  10. A kind neighbor brought over some lettuce, onion, and herbs from her balcony garden. Of course had to make a salad with it. Fresh is best.
  11. So Trolley Substation No 600 is being renovated into a retail space along with the building besides it (on the right side of the photo). Gonna be interesting. Of course the work they are doing is going to be slow as molasses. I'm just wondering why they didn't keep the substation to power to West LRT when it goes through on Stony Plain Rd.
  12. Although I am pleased that three pools are opening up on July 20, it sucks that they are all 25 meter, that we have to reserve a swim time slot in advance, and that lane swim duration is capped at 30 min. This is unfair, since public / recreation swim is capped at 60 minutes. This really should be the other way around. Folks that are there solely for the purpose of exercise should be given a longer duration. A warm up takes 15-20 minutes. Obviously a swimmer did not set these guidelines.
  13. Excellent. I have a few driver friends, but they have not been able to snag any masks for me.
  14. Will these be available at the Translink Store after the giveaway. I would love to have a couple of them. ETS is only giving away the disposable variety.
  15. A sausage roll and a mandarin orange.
  16. If you're with Telus, then subscribe to call control. I have it and it works super great. The basic version is free. Both basic and premium filter out MOST (like 99%) of those annoying calls. The only difference is that the basic will only let you program 25 calls into the 'accepted caller' list, and only log the last 10 incoming calls. I find that the basic version is sufficient. Most telephone companies provide a similar service, they just may call it something else. https://www.telus.com/en/bc/support/article/call-control-explained
  17. Home made smoothie. Banana, avocado, frozen fruit blend of Strawberries, Peaches, Mango, and Health Break Oasis fruit juice blend of Orange, Passion Fruit and Peach. Added a few ice cubes to make it good and slushy.. ♥
