Oh, I think that's Galveston oh Galveston...
Anyhoo you know what I mean...don't you? I'm here again at the Alberton Library while Michael catches up on his email and finds some movies to borrow so thought I'd say hello.
We've been spending our time looking around at antique stores/used furniture stores (just on the rainy days) but haven't really made too many purchases; just a couple of side tables to use by our bed (air mattress but what the heck - I'm sleeping like a baby!) to hold all our stuff: reading light, flashlight cause it's dark as hell around here at night, books and other various nighttime paraphanalia.
We have a 1950's kitchen table that weighs about 200 lbs plus 4 mis-matched chairs. Our livingroom furniture consists of two campfire chairs complete with drink holders and two footstools. What more do we really need?
This morning Michael put our BBQ together hurrah hurrah yippy yippy yay yay!! You may be thinking that since we've been here now over a week why did it take so long to put a BBQ together?? Well, that's because we held out for the onsale Walmart BBQ that sold out in mere seconds ($78.00 yeah, you read that right!) so they ordered us one from Truro, Nova Scotia! It arrived two minutes before i walked into the Walmart yesterday with $78 gripped in my tight little fist, so we had a lunch of rice and peas and BBq'd chicken. Can't wait for supper!!
The funny part though (well, I'm sure he'll find it funny tomorrow...or the next day)...is that it was SO WINDY today the flame kept blowing out! Ha ha funny right? So Michael had to keep wheeling the BBQ around the house to find a spot where the flame would stay lit!!
OH and before I forget @ MICHELLE - they got their Australian sheep dogs from an ad in a nova scotia newspaper! Someone in their family had had one and they really liked it so tracked a couple down - they're sisters and very nice dogs though could use a little more training in my opinion. They really wanted to eat my chicken today while they were visiting!! Down...down I say!
Well, that's all the exciting news for now. On Friday last we went up to Tignish and became members of the local co-op, though i haven't really figured out yet what that entitles us to. A few lower prices at their store I guess, it all helps. Then we went on to see the wind farm at North Cape, wow, what a beautiful spot!! We weren't brave enough though to sample the Seaweed Pie - has anyone tried that??
Ciao for now my friends, catch up with you soon!
