So today is Canada’s birthday! The country’s still incredibly young compared to others, but they all ‘age’ at the same rate, I suppose, so there’s not much that can be done about that. So today I didn’t wear white… or red. I didn’t have a flag pin on or a small flag sticking out of my hair like I did when I was younger. I didn’t really feel like being in the birthday celebratory mood.
I did go out for lunch with the family today, as well as some shopping in the lovely air conditioned mall. I tried on a few dresses that I had eyed on a website that had finally gone on sale at more than 50% off, but they just didn’t look as good on me as they did on the mannequins on the website. Which was rather disappointing. But at least I refrained from spending money today, which is always nice. My next credit card bill is going to be atrocious anyways, since I went and bought my new doll (who was totally worth it!). I decided that I’m probably going to make another blog just for doll-related entries. Wouldn’t want to bore everyone as I go on and on about hair treatment for Blythe dolls, now would I? Now I’d just need a blog name for it!
Dinner was awesome, my dad made crab and chicken to go along with the vegetables and the rice. Mmm, mmm, good! We’ve been eating leftovers from last weekend for the last few days – my parents made this stew that has beef (ox tail, to be more specific), carrots, potatos and tomatoes. It’s really good and keeps well, but after having it for three days in a row (for lunch and dinner!), it was wearing a bit thin in terms of what my taste budes like. So crab and chicken was a much welcome change!
So, for those who are in Canada… What did you do with your day off? (If you had the day off, that is.) Did you do anything festive for Canada’s birthday or did you just stay at home and relax on that extra day off that you have this week?
And for those who aren’t Canadian or not in Canada at the moment, and therefore don’t get a day off (unless you have some other random holiday…) what did you do today that was interesting or mundane? Do share! =)
