High Hopes

Early this morning we headed west to Ontario for a wee roadtrip.

We needed a change of scenery.

We were heading to Cornwall, Ontario for some thrifting, sightseeing and lunch.

And I had a big bag of clothes and bed sheets to donate.

Our first stop was Value Village...

 I saw this lonely and sad 441 Pyrex bowl.
I could not see if it had a pattern!

 This Pyrex look a like casserole was in fact a Corning Ware casserole.

Seeing a huge throw made out of Phentex really brought me back to the 70's.

What a strange fiber. It was rough, heavy yet warm and melted really well in the oven!

How do I know?

When I was 5 or 6, the building next to our apartment was demolished,
leaving a thinner wall and the wind would freeze it right up.

My Mom would turn on the oven and leave the door open and we would sit
in front of it. She would put her feet up in her Phentex slippers and she melted quite a few pairs....

Blast from the past!

Do you have Phentex anecdotes?

New Chapter

So we've arrived at a new chapter in our lives.

My stepdaughter and her boyfriend and her fur babies moved in downstairs. We had the pleasure of babysitting them on Friday.

 The girls are getting used to the new surroundings.
 Since we are in the middle of the city I had to reserve parking with my
move (demenagement) poster.
After a hard day's work we just had to have a

 Champagne toast to our new lives.

Dad would be so happy to have family nearby.
