Let's see: I'm on my weekend, a loooong weekend as Monday is Heritage Day here in Alberta.

I got up early this morning and took L to breakfast at the 1886 Buffalo Cafe. It was crowded and noisy, but made a nice change from our normal routine. The coffee there is good, which is important. After breakfast, we walked along the river. The flooding has left a huge amount of debris (branches, uprooted trees and the like) high on the banks. I expect it will be a few years before it all gets cleaned up. Back home, I worked on paying bills and other month-end stuff, then ran some errands (post office, banking, haircut). Now I am back home, enjoying a tall, cool Kokanee.
