Just got back from lunch and it is a nice day today. I had a grilled cheese with tomato and onion on it and soup. It is weird, it is like 60 out and I think it is warm. I guess it shows you can get used to the cold, too. We got a lot done this morning. Chris took me out to Ikea to look for some new stuff for his bigger office. I found some nice sofas and told him to get a new desk that was not some huge hunk of wood like the one he has had for years that I have banged my toes and shins on for years. They had a bathing suit sale at La Vie en Rose, so Chris got a fashion show and I got some new bathing suits because he promised me we are going to travel this summer. He said that Cozumel sounds great and I love it there. He even said maybe we can go to Europe this summer or Japan if we can travel there. I would love both. Especially some place where they have great beaches and sun.

I have dance class in a couple hours. Sam will pick me up and when I get home after 2 and a half hours, I will have dinner with everyone. Later dinner but is lighter, too. We are having fruit salad and some kind of pork things, little circles in pineapple juice. I ate too much, yesterday. That cherry pie was too good and so was the homemade ice cream. Chris made the kind with eggs and shaved chocolate. There were also almonds in it, too. Chris is happy. He liked the game yesterday and he got to watch 2 new Japanese cartoons last night and I liked them too. He told me the one about the basket of fruit is starting again today and I liked that one because the one girl is so nice and giving.

Trying to find the right tights and leotards to wear today. The first outfit I put on, Chris loved because the backside is like a thong. I hated it. I am going with the white floral one with black leggings. It looks better on me, I think. Here I am ready and Sam said she would be here around 4:30 to pick me up and she reminded me to bring a liter of water because the water they sell there is like really expesnive. I guess I will watch some Guy's Grocery Games until Sam comes. Laters.

Ok, I am still sore. I think I am in pretty good shape, but a couple hours of dancing and I am really bad sore. I soaked in really hot tub last night and this morning, I did a sit in the sauna but I still feel like all my leg muscles are going to explode. Chris went out to get me lunch. I wanted to go with but every little step was killing me. I am old and I feel it. Do not be like Chris who tells me that 52 is not old. It is old. Tomorrow will be more jazz dancing and I cannot wait for the hula classes later this month. I think I can make that work, I got hips and Chris says I can make them move so I might survive that class. I will not lie, I love the class and I am hoping to get my legs and backside into the same shape as Sam's. I know she is like 15 years younger than me, but I still would love to not have love handles on my butt. I have seen the pictures and it looks like I am carrying 2 puppies on my hips.

Yay, Chris is back with lunch. He got me a barbecue chicken salad and some grapes. He already has dinner going. He is making chipotle rubbed ribs and they are in the pressure cooker so he can barbecue them tonight. He made a macaroni and potato salad like at 6 and even though both are fattening, I think I will be ok. He was going to make tacos tonight but he forgot to pull out the ground pork and chicken. He said he loved the game but I stole him away around midnight because I wanted company. Besides, I have dibs on him anyway.

Oh yeah, his new furniture was delivered today and I did not know this but the guys from Ikea will build the stuff for you for a price. So, the new sofas, his new desk and oh what the hell is the word for that like desk behind the desk where you stick stuff? He got one of those, too. He also got a coffee table, nice lamps and end tables. Thanks, Chris told me it is a credenza. He even got some nice chairs and a new office chair, but that is for Tatianna because Chris loves his really expensive office chair that goes with nothing. He even got rugs so no more freezing my feet in there. It does look nice even though I am not a fan of Ikea, but he is Swedish, so it is like something they love. Now, he just needs to get all the boxes unpacked that are in the hallway and around his space. He has too many action figures, Japanese comic books and movies, but he says when he is done putting all he has away, he will still lots of space. I am little worried about the 2 walls of glass doors because glass breaks. Oh, he got a ship date for the huge girl with blue hair he bought like last year. It is on a boat and it will be here in like June or July. I had forgot he spent all that money for it but if it makes him happy I am ok with it. She is actually, if the picture is right, kind of cute. Just that a 6 foot tall plastic statue is a little freaky. I swear, if they made a Pansy like that, he would pay whatever they asked. I think he loves Pansy more than me. He saw that and said that is the truth.

Gosh, I am chatterbox today. I just saw the dogs running around outside chasing a bunny. We have bunnies in our backyard because of my garden and they are too cute. Oops, Violet spun out into the back fence. Poor girl has such short legs that when she gets going fast she cannot turn like Allie. Ok, Frankie, I will mention you and your sister. Frankie thought it was a good idea to try to steal some chicken from my salad. I just have to tell her no and she just curls up on the table and hopes I change my mind. Annette is not as smart. I have to whack her with a magazine to make my point. And, Chris just yelled. Sounds like the laundry for the downstairs people was overflowing. I do not know why he goes down there to clean up but he is a clean freak, so he probably cannot take their mess being so close to him. I feel sorry for them because they get another speech about being sloppy. Tatianna got that speech on Sunday morning when she left her dirty clothes in the laundry room and told him to get on it. I swear, I thought he was going to spank her or something. Chris was funny then, he was asking how a girl can dirty like 25 pieces of underwear in a a week. He said he is going to buy her Depends and that is all I am gonna say. I guess I better stop and eat my lunch, both cats are eyeing me and think I might be done and they get the leftovers. Laters.

Lovely day in the less frozen confines of Quebec. Herself is off to her dance class, they will be in the early afternoon now and she had to ask the silly question if she still looks good. Her class is full of all these younger girls ans she is worried she looks fat or flabby. I told her she puts those fetuses to shame. Got the million watt smile for that one and my day is done.

Just finishing up the office. Good choice on the flooring. I can slide across it in my socks and it goes with the new furnishings. Just have to finish putting everything in it's place. Good lord, I have a lot of toys and stuff. When you buy it one or two pieces at a time, it doesn't seem like a lot but when you put all of it up at once, it is a massive undertaking. All I really have left is putting away over a hundred plastic tubs, I am lucky they fit together and take up less space. Still, I have to store most of them at our storage, which is getting packed, because room here at Casa Torgrimsson is getting a bit tight.

Dogs are barking. Probably should take them for a walk. It is a nice day and a walk to Tim Horton's for a afternoon donut and coffee sounds good. Might even stop by the bank and see if Tatianna wants to join me for a munchie. Got a little pissed at Tatianna last night and I owe her an apology. But, she has a new car and she is not taking care of it like she promised and missed that two of her tires are really low on air. Still, I didn't need to get mad at her at dinner. She is really sensitive these days because she is keeping tabs on her ex and because he appears happy, she is miserable in kind. Still learning on how to deal with women even though I have been married to Herself for over thirty years. Paula is easy but Katja (and Jos to some extent) and Tatianna are different animals. The Boy was easy, just tell him to take a daily shower and we were good. The girls always seem to be on the verge of bawling if I give them a stern look. Oh well, time to take the dogs for a stroll and try to make it right with Tatianna. Needed to unburden myself before facing the music as it were.

No Herself this afternoon. She is at her last Jazz Dance class, then they progress to Hula. I am good with the grass skirt but the leotards are nice too. Nice day in Merry Olde Quebec. Dogs have been walked, donuts have been eaten and had lunch with two of my favorite girls at an outdoor bistro. Now, just waiting for the grandkids to be dropped off so I can fill them up on sugar and toys so that their mother can call me names and wag her finger at me. Funny, the minute I type that the grandkids are coming over, both Frankie and Annette make for higher ground. They do not like Bayley or Luc much. Probably because both cats have long tails and the little ones seem to step on them all the time. Spent Wednesday night at a nice restaurant where we could sit - six feet from anyone - and eat a dinner served by a wait staff. Almost heaven. Went to a Szechuan place called Szechuan Par Mr. Ma. Just the right amount of spice and the food was fantastic. Girls might've went too big as they figured since dear old dad was paying, they would get some to go items. It seems they ordered this while I was outside taking a phone call from the Boy. I am betting this was a plan in advance. Couldn't figure out why a dinner for five was over 220 Canadian, not counting tips.

Ballgame is on later today, right? I am not used to Friday afternoon ball games. That is okay, the grandkids will have plenty of room for Luc's fleet of trucks and cars and I will be asked to play with Bayley's dolls and stuff. Although, she is very into stuffies, now. Girl comes over with a backpack and bag of stuffed cats, tigers and lions. She has one helluva imagination. Her menagerie of stuffed toys have a queen, princess and I think a Parliament. I almost think she is putting together her version of an isekai where she ends up in a fantasy land as a tiger. She even prefers to wear cat ears in her hair, lately. One day, I will explain that turning into a cat is a downgrade. At least she has moved on from putting ribbons in my hair and trying to braid it. I dread the day when her mother explains make up to her because I am thinking I will be her practice dummy. I just hope she follows her mother's lead and uses makeup in moderation. Paula just likes eye shadow and something that makes her cheekbones look better. Speaking of Paula, the security camera shows that she is pulling into the driveway. She has a key so she can get into the house. With that, time to entertain my grandkids.

Herself had her first hula class and she brought back a video on her phone and she is really good at it. She said she loves this class because she is not killing herself and because she is better than the fetuses in her class. I miss the grass skirt aspect, but I can appreciate the art nevertheless. Kill me, I love watching my wife do just about anything. Plus, she is uber happy and said she feels like twenty years younger. All good, in my opinion.

Was thinking of that Hawaiian delicacy known as Spam for dinner tonight, but I also know that Herself hates the stuff, so instead something more along the lines of her taste buds - stuffed pork chops. Got the apples and fennel, so she should be happy and I am going to try deep frying fingerling potatoes and Brussel Sprouts with bacon. I am not a huge fan of those foul mini cabbages, but I tried fried ones that Paula made the other day and they were not awful. Leave it to her to mess with my likes and dislikes. Speaking of my oldest child, she is dropping the grandkids off tomorrow after they finish remote schooling because she has to make another appearance at her job.

Otherwise, a nice day, if you consider low sixties nice. Dogs got their constitutional in and I am thinking another walk would not kill either, especially the fat, stubby one. I am liking that more and more of the local businesses are okay with dogs on leashes being in their establishments. Just have to watch the big one, she likes to take things from lower shelves like the loaf of oat bread at the bakery. Sorry, Herself is all excited, she says she needs some more bathing suits because the new ones she just bought are too big. This is an issue? I am perfectly fine with bathing suits falling off. She said that was pervy and I replied I aim to please. Of course she had to show me and Houston, we have a problem. So, I am off to several establishments to hold her backpack/purse while she spends three hours trying on suits. It is not all bad, she needs my approval and I get to judge each suit. Life is wonderfully good.
