I found a small yellow 401 bowl and 2 small pink refrigerator dishes and a 502 (the medium one) pink also. But they had been ravaged by the dreaded dishwasher. The bowl was so bad that you could bearly see that it had been yellow. The refrigerator dishes were nearly as bad.
That makes me mad! I had to leave them there....I found a small Bodum coffee maker for .99 cents. Good
After a lunch at an Indian Buffet. I went to the Value Village in Pierrefonds as well. Slim pickings...I found a cover for a small casserole. I had an Autumn Harverst casserole sighting but I already had it. Oh well, It will be for another time!
This morning I had a call from Dad. He was all excited because he found me a small Daisy casserole, I don't know which size, but I am thrilled! That ends the week real well!

I really love the instant coffee carafe on the left, because the promotional sticker is still partially on it, and you have the french and english version proving that it was a promotional gift when you bought Maxwell House coffee. The other was a gift from my father.

Anyways I got those 2 beauties for 3 dollars. Believe it or not the small Pyrex casserole was .89 cents, the Glasbake cup 1.99. You can see the difference of quality between Pyrex and Glasbake. Pyrex actually fired the paint afterwards, but I believe Glasbake just let it dry. The cup is matte not shiny like Pyrex. I will give the casserole to my Dad, he collects transparent Pyrex and I will give the cup to my friend Celine (She already has two,a salmon and a jade green)
The heatwave continues and being mindful of the environment and our carbon footprint we try to turn on the air conditionning as little as possible. Today my new haircolor actually ran in my neck...EEEWWWW!!! That's is hot and humid!

It was such a good concert! I loved it! It was my first time at the Molson center (Where the
Canadians play and Montreal's big concert hall). It was spacious and airy and the sound was great and it was my first middle-aged concert. So the vibe was different, nobody sang (except me), nobody danced (I didn't, I'm not really a great dancer ....). Anyways the room was tamer, oh yeah definitely tamer, and some people were rushing out to beat the traffic! Anyways,
even with the 45 min drive back I was home at 11:00! He played old stuff and new stuff and basically all the songs I wanted to hear, so it was a big hit!!! Beforehand we had supper at La Brasserie Brunoise, and it was out of this world!!! It is not often we frequent pricey joints (I believe this one is classified as middle of the road price wise, but still pricey for us). We both had the Steak Frites(steak with homemade fries) and for dessert we shared a Panna Cotta with passion fruit and basil coulis (sounds weird? well it was deliciously weird)!!! I highly recommend it and I will go back again when I want to splurge!
