I arrived in Psychgrad's city on Saturday evening. What started out as a 4 hour drive turned into an 8 hour drive. I went to pick up Actor Boy (Psychgrad's brother) and couldn't figure out why all the streets in downtown Toronto were blocked off. I learned that it was Portugal Day and everything was shut down for what I'm sure was the longest parade in the history of man. Actor Boy, suitcase in tow made his way by foot to find me and off we went...or so we thought. Getting to the main highway artery turned out to be a challenge. It took us from noon until 3 p.m. to actually see the highway. Whew...off we went until... leadfoot Giz was stopped for speeding and was lucky with zero tolerance laws to escape with only a ticket. The alternative would have been losing both my car and license. OK, lesson learned...move on.
Sunday began the marathon. We knew we planned to make the bride and groom cookies. We also knew we were planning to put them inside gift baskets for out of town guests. What we didn't plan on was "R"'s office throwing a surprise potluck and inviting Psychrad to be there as part of the surprise. Ok, so we'll make more cookies. And more cookies for Psychgrad's workplace, and more cookies for her language education class and maybe just have them at the wedding for people to take home.
R's potluck and cake
And the baskets are being prepared
Sorry for such a short post - starting the mini banana breads for breakfast treats in the baskets.
R's been taking alot of pictures of dirty dishes and threatening to post them. We should let him :)
