I’m still in my home improvement mode.
Last night Chris and I went downtown to meet two of my brothers and my sister for dinner. One of my brothers was here on business. Toronto was just one stop in his ongoing three week world wide travel agenda. He was here trying to talk other businesses into investing in his business. He needs to get $240 million dollars! He’s well on his way too!
Anyway … I digress. We hadn’t planned which restaurant we were going to eat at so we met in my brothers hotel lobby and then started walking around downtown looking at restaurants while we tried to decide which one we’d stop in.
As we were walking I saw a home decor store. Of course I had to stop and do some window shopping! They had the nicest house marker that I think I’ve ever seen. It was pricey but I think I can talk Chris into getting it if I work on him a bit. It would go so well with our house!
I also saw a couch in another store window that I’d love to get. It’s kind of 50’s style couch. I’ll have to see if I can find a photo of it later to show you. It’s beautiful.
We finally decided to stop at the Hot House Cafe for dinner. My visiting brother and I both got the Jambalya. Mmmm I just love that. Of course it was a huge helping and I couldn’t even finish half of it so it’s in a doggy bag in the fridge. Hmmm now that I’m talking about it I’m hungry. Perhaps I should go and raid the fridge?
We had a nice time at dinner. Falling into our old habits of teasing one another. I think the five of us had the waitress confused because I don’t think she ever figured out that we were all siblings! Well Chris isn’t a sibling but my bothers and sister treat him like one.
My brother leaves town this evening to go back home to Vancouver. Then on Sunday he’s off to the US, then Paris and Zürich and I’m not sure where else.
I don’t think I’ll see my jet set brother again until the beginning of September.
