Social time

Good evening!

As implied by the title, today was a day of visiting and social time with friends and family. It was nice :)

We had a nice lazy morning, having breakfast with Nanny. Once we were up and around, I called my other grandmother, Nana, to find out when I could visit her today. I ended up dropping Erin off at Steve's, then heading over to Nana's to visit with her and Arnold for a bit. I couldn't stay there long, as Nana had an appointment in the afternoon, but I was able to have a bite of lunch with them and catch up a bit. It was a good little visit and they seemed very pleased to see me.

After leaving Nana's I went to find Steve and Erin, who had gone out for walk, and we went back to Steve's house a while. We eventually headed back to Nanny's, as she was making pot roast for supper and didn't mind feeding a few extra people (Steve has enough of an appetite that he counts as a few people). We went for a nice walk down part of the Trans-Canada trail that runs near Nanny's house while we waited for supper. We saw lots of birds, including ducks and a heron, and I'm pretty sure I saw an eagle flying too, but I can't prove that as it was a ways off. It was a lovely sunny day though, perfect for a nice walk.

Supper was excellent, of course. It always is at Nanny's house. I took Steve home shortly after dinner, as Erin and I talked him into coming back to Halifax with us for a visit (and possibly for longer), and he needed to get his laundry and packing done. On my way back to Nanny's, I stopped at my aunt's house to visit her and my cousin Emma (Billy is out of town), but Emma had skating tonight and they weren't home. Ah well, hopefully I will catch up with them next time.

The rest of the evening was me, Erin and Nanny having what Nanny called a "stitch 'n bitch". Erin and I were cross-stitching, Nanny was knitting, and we watched TV and chatted. It sounds so domestic and the opposite of cool, but it's really nice to do that once in a while. It's one of the reason I love coming to Nanny & Grampy's. And now I am sitting in bed writing a blog entry before I go to sleep to rest up for the trip home tomorrow.

Look at me, posting two days in a row...the world must be ending ;) I will post again from home, where I should be tomorrow!

Edit - Oh, extra comment that Jacki's comment reminded me of. Erin passed the night in the basement uneventfully, and is dubious as to the extent of the haunting in the basement ;)

Erin must be a SOUND SLEEPER! I don't know anyone who has had a good night's sleep in that basement!

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to good of virtuous fritter away in days of yore staring at it as a formality of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to reduce emphasis and decent assume just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've eternally collected more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, musical boxes etc. So I was most charmed when I establish the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Shine Appear Laser Top Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a melodic box, a spinning head, and a light verify all rolled into one. Which is spectacular relaxation! The gyroscope will whirl after about a minute. The laser explanation manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a very corresponding exactly bauble that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also fair eccentric around the laser gyroscope I got from They evermore follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at earliest they kept barking at the laser insight boast, and also because it produces music. But after they got tempered to it, they've stopped barking but virtuous save up following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused nearby it. On occasion it's good to take entertaining toys throughout the ancestry so that you can pull out the bit of frippery trifle with on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you live get up foodstuffs or receive changed. The gyroscope is unified such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a pattern on it, and produces a gegenschein accompany with red, dispirited, and unripened colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that expert but allowable plenty to treat any chic guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and negro, making it look very imperturbable, and slightly virile with that dragon imprint.

The music dismount attack plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also utilized this gyroscope to stagger my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the hostelry cell with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as correctly so that the laser insight show produces a dreamed-up effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the sunrise effects created a degree romantic atmosphere. She loved it, at near the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my default shopping put in return all gifts and ideas in compensation emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser lamp playing gyroscope can perhaps be a momentous Christmas favour in behalf of the toddler or neutral the mollycoddle! Alternatively, the gyroscope can absolutely be a nice summation to the established Christmas decorations. I can presume placing it near the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my business still again!
