I'm cold. Very cold. Winnipeg has been in a nearly continuous deep-freeze for at least 3 weeks now, with never more than a few days warmer than -20C, and windchills usually in the -30 to -40 range. Last night our power went out for most of the night, and went out a few times again this morning, meaning our heat didn't work and is still not working quite right. It also scrambled our internet again and it needs to be sorted out properly.
I'm going to Edmonton on Saturday for a 4-day visit with Angela, including an evening with Elizabeth. Luckily it's supposed to be no colder than -5 there! That leaves me with the problem of what to wear to the airport...it's going to be -30 here that day, and -5 when I land in Edmonton. Hrm.
-IKEA - I'm bringing an empty suitcase to fill with IKEA stuff. Seriously.
-WEM - there's some new stores (H&M anyone?) that I'd like to check out, as well as some old favourites like Sanrio, the Glow store, etc. I'm really hoping to find a bento box at Sanrio (if not, I'm still buying some Hello Kitty chopstick sets) or at T & M
-Yarn stores (Hello! Of course! Never know what you can get in different cities right?)
-Restaurants: I'd LIKE to go to Yianni's and possibly more places, but my funds are limited
-Not sure what else we're going to do yet, but we're going to have fun! Tea drinking and knitting are of course included....Angela, should I bring any DVD's for evening entertainment? Have you seen "Stardust" yet?
