I Like Weekends


Well, anoth­er week­end has come and gone. It was a fun one, even though my whole body end­ed up being all sore. It was most­ly from our vis­it to the Webster’s Falls in the Nia­gara Escarp­ment near Hamil­ton on Sun­day. You see, to get to the bot­tom of the falls, you have to climb down a stair­way. Climb­ing down the steep stair­way wasn’t a big deal. Climb­ing up is anoth­er sto­ry alto­geth­er because I’m not real­ly the fittest per­son in the world. I’m just glad it didn’t start rain­ing until we fin­ished climb­ing up the stairs. It would’ve been worse oth­er­wise.

We weren’t quite sure where to go after the falls, espe­cial­ly since it was rain­ing heav­i­ly. As we usu­al­ly do in this kind of sit­u­a­tion, we just aimed for the thrift stores. But we got side­tracked and end­ed up in IKEA in Burling­ton instead. The plan was to check out some book­shelves but we end­ed up buy­ing any­thing but book­shelves. Most­ly kitchen uten­sils. And some pho­to frames. And a plant for me. I don’t know what the plant is called so I just call it Spot. Speak­ing of IKEA, if your name is Chris, you’re a notice­board in IKEA world. But you prob­a­bly know it already.

We went to a cou­ple of thrift stores after IKEA. Picked up a few things but noth­ing phe­nom­e­nal. We did pick up a cam­era from an antique mar­ket to add into our vin­tage cam­era col­lec­tion on Sat­ur­day. It was a Sawyer’s Nomad 620 (I still have yet to take a pic­ture of it). It’s pret­ty crap­tas­tic. After our vis­it to the antique mar­ket, we met up with our friend Joe and we went to the cin­e­ma togeth­er to see Lady in the Water. It was a pret­ty enter­tain­ing movie. More fun­ny than scary. It’s def­i­nite­ly dif­fer­ent from M. Night Shyamalan’s pre­vi­ous works, and dif­fer­ent is good.

We’re going up to the cot­tage two week­ends from now. Can’t wait! I’m real­ly look­ing for­ward to try­ing out the cam­era we won from an auc­tion awhile ago, the Pace­mak­er Crown Graph­ic, while we are there. So excit­ed!

I’m such a geek.

    Didn’t want you to be like, “And you are WHO???” LOL

  3. appar­ent­ly, nia­gra falls is mak­ing more and more mist, which is KILLING things, and wreak­ing hav­oc on the near­by pop­u­lace.
