life around here

Lest you think that I'm always contemplating my navel and thinking deep thoughts, here are some photos of what we've been up to lately in our home:

Driving through Vieux Ste-Rose and enjoying the local community events!
 I really love Vieux Ste Rose. I drive through it every morning on my way to work and it just makes me happy. Even with all the stop signs that mean it takes me forever to get to the highway. It's quaint and all that good stuff!

Bike rides by the river!

Look what we saw:



You can't see them cause the little buggers are slippery that way, but there are tons of frogs here! Every time we took a step towards the water, a bunch of frogs would jump and swim away. It was awesome. And then Paul tried to get close and ended up stepping in the mud. Ick. But we were by water, so he sorted it out...


Paul and his other mistress: his iPhone
Paul using his resto-Montreal app (it even works in Laval) to figure out where to go for dinner. It was hot an we wanted air conditioning! When we bought the house we decided that it wasn't worth it to pay for the central air option (hello, it was like $10 000 extra). What we didn't think about was the fact that in the next 30 years in this house, the amount of times we go out for dinner and air conditioning might have actually made it worth it...

This is where we went for dinner. Bistro de la Gare. It's on the other side of the river (as in the north shore) but it's cute. And they have books for decor. I dig that. Their sangria is pretty tasty too.

Paul & his other mistress, Mayla, share a beer
Our cat is a water whore. That's right. I said water whore. Drippies, condesation on your glass, mud puddles, toilet bowl, dish under plants. She'll drink water from anywhere and everywhere, except from her bloody fracken water bowl where we just poured fresh water. I'm starting to get pissy about it and am tempted to go out to the mud puddles and collect her water from there because maybe then she'd bloody well drink it! Stupid cat!
