Georgie slept alone. I'd say he sleeps with us about half the time. Usually he wanders in at some point in the middle of the night.
My puffy morning face, ugh. I took Georgie on the long walk through Park Baldwin. The trees are just starting to leaf out. Most of the green is some kind of blossom though a few species have leafed out finally. Today we are in the mid 70's and everyone is outside "taking some sun".
This lot has been empty for years and finally a for sale sign went up. Just the land is $850,000. It's at the intersection of two major arteries. It was once a garage/gas station. Every time I walk past, I think of how it's a perfect spot for a Tim Horton's. Franchisees make around $300,000 profit per year on average so I'm just dying to put it together. I figure if I could find 9 investors at 200k, I'd finally have my license to print money. Oh sure it'd be a lot of work, especially at first, but for that kind of money, I'd definitely be up to the task. Who's in?
Breakfast as usual, a slice of toast with a little cheez whiz and a microwave-poached egg.
For the next several hours I worked on lesson planning and preparation. I was a bad boy at lunch time but it was a beautiful day outside. Serge and I walked over for poutine and sat outside and ate it. Yum.
Georgie likes soaking up the sun too out on the patio. Our jasmine in the background there lost a lot of its leaves over the winter inside and I hope she comes back to life.
Took Georgie over to the doggie park so he could run his little guts out.
Dinner was filet mignon on the bbq plus this. It's called corn casserole and I got the recipe from Mark. There are 5 ingredients. Jiffy corn muffin mix, butter, corn (kernel and cream), sour cream and cheddar cheese. I'm thinking it can't be classified as lowcal. But dudes, yumbatron.
During dinner, we watched our show, Un Souper Presque Parfait. It's also my french practice of the day. I don't know why America doesn't have a show like this because I'm sure it would be a hit. It was originally developed in France. Basically, they choose five strangers (often with very different personalities) to make dinner for the others one night of the week. The show is filmed at the contestants homes. They each rate the evenings on a scale of 1-10 and after Fridays dinner, the person with the highest score wins a few thousand dollars. They post all the recipes on the website after it airs. The narrator is very snarky which makes it funny. I submitted my candidacy but haven't heard from them. Pooh.
After dinner, we went on an evening walk. It's staying light much later right now. The tulips are finally up and I didn't even need a sweater or coat. Yay!
Spent the rest of the evening watching the last Big Love disc that we had. At the end of season four, they finally come out! (of the polygamy closet.)
There you have it. A rather uneventful 12of12 I'll admit, but that's just how the day was. If you'd like to see what others have recorded for the 12th of the month. Just click on over to Chad's blog.
