Day 19 – Back in Beautiful Barrhaven

It was spring day today! Sunny, warm and birds on every branch. I caught up on email and then headed over to Barrhaven Centre to grab lunch and pick up some essentials.

Welcome to BarrhavenGot off the bus too late to check Vith’s new restaurant recommendation… a Pho place in Barrhaven, a must try while I’m out there… so instead… and I’m not proud of this… I went to the DQ Brazier for a burger. I considered walking back for Pho… but I just wasn’t up to it. Picked up a nightlight to read my bedtime book by, which I got at a dollar store for $1.50. That way I’m not keeping the overhead light on all night and I’m also not running through the days events and worries over and over and over again in my head instead of sleeping. Also picked up groceries to cover me for dinners and lunches when I’m not checking out restaurants. Good investment for those days I want to save up my daily budget to do more the next day.

I was bang on budget after today with food in the fridge. Can’t beat that! Mabo bought us dinner from Go4Greek. Another wonderful chicken souvlaki dinner accompanied by a green salad with those great mixed greens… I’m impressed again. Forced poor Mabo & Vith to watch The Apprentice with me, so I could keep The Apprentice Blog up to date. Then I crashed.
