It seems that we always have one day every weekend where we run around to different stores buying the things we need to get us through the week. I guess it’s a good thing that for the most part we manage to get the majority of our shopping done each week in one day instead of shopping several times throughout the week.
This past Saturday was our big shopping day and we sure picked the coldest day of the year to go out. I really mean that. I was -33 Celsius outside during the DAY! For my American visitors that’s -27.4 F. Bone chillingly freezing!
Our neighbors were “visiting” their house and must have been doing some kind of toxic renovations because they had their windows open most of the day. Can you believe they had their windows open when it was that cold outside? They either really had to do whatever they were doing renovation wise and couldn’t put it off until it was a little warmer outside and would make a little more sense (and be a little less costly) to have the windows open all day or else they really aren’t all that smart!
In one of the areas that my husband and I went to do some of our shopping there seemed to be payday advance loans stores on almost every corner. You know … like donut or coffee shops. LOL I don’t think I’ve ever seen a street or area that had so many cash advance or money lending places so close together. Not that I’ve noticed before anyway. Strange. Perhaps that area has a higher incidence of people that borrow money? I suppose that information could be discovered. It was strange though.
Even though it was such a cold day in Toronto on Saturday I’m glad that we went out and got everything we needed because as it turned out, we spent a good portion of Sunday fixing our leaking upstairs toilet. Yeah … I can’t say that my husband nor I had a very fun weekend … but everything is done now.
