Our Date Day

Good Morning Everyone. It’s very early on Saturday morning. I had a bit of a nightmare so I’m up and about. I don’t want¬†to go back to bed as I don’t want it to pick up where I left off. It was a troubling sort of dream. Probably¬†happened because we went to see Alice in Wonderland last night or we were watching Fringe before bed. I was trying to get through this little hole and I was too big. Maybe its the fear of gaining back the weight I lost. Who knows. Where is Carl Jung when you need him.

My husband and I had a date day yesterday. We went for breakfast, then walked around Port Perry¬†and went in all the stores, had lunch at the Fish ‘n Chip place on main street, went to Hanks the bakery (yum), then we came home watched a little TV and then went to see Alice in Wonderful in 3D with popcorn¬† (hey I think I know why I didn’t fit in the hole in my dream¬†because I ate so much yesterday).

I so loved the movie. It was great. I want to go again and sit more up front to get the full effect of the 3D. I think we were a little too far back and off to the side. We love the seats with the bars in front as no one is in front of you and you can put up your feet. When we went to see Avatar we were right up front (and I mean the front row) and it was like we were in the movie ourselves. It was great. A little hard on the neck but great.

Johnny Depp was too cute in it. I think my favorite character though was the rabbit. I do love the caterpillar though too.

The person they casted for Alice is so beautiful. The white queen too was great. I loved the¬†way she¬†held¬†her hands. ¬†It will be a timeless classic I’m sure.

So on our date when we were in Port Perry I found something I have been waiting to come to Canada¬†for¬†forever. Yes of course its a gadget. As you know we have a Keurig coffee machine which is the best thing ever (no more Tim’s) and there is this little gadget to go with it that makes the foam for on top of your coffee. They only had it in the US and I’ve wanted it for forever.

(As Bobby is always so generous on our date days (well always really) he got it for me. I did get a mini  lecture on the way home about all the other gadgets in the cupboards but I reminded him of how much we love the Keurig which I had to convince him of before that we cannot live without now. All was forgiven. If we had of gone a couple of times for fuzzy Starbucks it would have cost the same anyway. This is forever.)

I continue here… I never had much luck with the hand held ones but this is different. It’s like a miniature little kettle and you add your skim milk, push the button and you get wonderful creamy hot milk and if you add the little frother thing you get foam.

No more cream which is sinfully fattening. The foam stays too. It’s perfect. Me and my gadgets.

We got it at Tweed and Hickory in Port Perry. See it here. It’s a great store. The women that work there are so funky and fun. Actually Port Perry is having a Diva Night on April 23rd (2010) so it is a great time to go. I always lose Bobby for a while when he goes in this store as he tries to tell everyone thinking of buying a Keurig machine how great they are. He must sell like 5 machines for them every time we visit.

Here’s some quotes for you:

“Marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get. It’s something you do. It’s the way you love your partner every day.” Barbara De Angelis

“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”
Mignon McLaughlin

Until we meet again, Sharon
