Meat Pies and Tart-ays

Twas my day off today so my little mother and I went to Niagara-On-The-Lake to wander around the shops.  Does anyone else go to the Irish Shop there?  They have a little cafe in the back with the most yummolicious treats, such as scones and gingie bread.  Great coffee too.  I had to piddidle so I went downstairs to their loo, which consists of a two piece bathroom with one toilet without a stall.  Not ordinarily an issue, however, I opened the door to see a woman standing at the sink.  Hello!  Ever try locking the door?!  She said it was ok and I could come in.  Sure, I’ll just drop my drawers and do my whiz-biz while you’re standing there drying your hands at the fan dryer next to the toilet!  Oh well, she was nice about it at least.  After partaking at the cafe, we checked out a few more stores as we headed over to the bakery.  It’s sad to see how many stores have closed or are closing.  I guess it’s like that everywhere though.  We went into the bakery and ended up drooling all over ourselves while admiring the delectable yummies in the display case.  My mother picked up her usual scotch pies and maple tart-ays, while I picked up some meat pies and empire cookies.  This was pretty much all we purchased during our shopping extravaganza – sad, eh?
After leaving NOTL, we headed over to Bon Clair to purchase a new throw for my bed.  My hairless kitties like to snuggle under it while I’m at work.  Once I’m home, they can often be found on my lap.  I had to purchase a new one because little Abby kept getting her Soft Paws claws stuck in the stitching.  Ever hear of these things?  Check them out: http://www.softpaws.com They come in many different colours, but I have only found the clear in Canada.  They’re a great alternative to getting your cat declawed.  Abby has had the same ones on for a couple months now.  They’re available at PetSmart.
One other product recommendation – Kraft Dinner Crackers.  They’re the best darn cheese crackers I’ve ever had.  Not too salty but loaded with cheese flavour.
That’s all for today – ta!

Today’s symptoms:  Feeling pretty good in the morning and until around 2:00 in the afternoon, then slowly crashed due to the amount of walking we did during our trip to NOTL.  After dinner, stayed in bed like a lifeless lump of gobblety-goop!
