I had it in my mind for a few weeks now that I’d like to spend the day with my Mom. The other day I asked her if she would like to go to the park or something on Canada day, and she said that she’d like to go downtown somewhere, perhaps by the water. So after I disconnected and disinfected my dialysis machine, I hopped into the shower, got dressed, and both myself and my mom walked to the 7-eleven near our house to purchase a day pass (best $9 ever spent…my mom and I took SEVERAL bus trips!)
First, we went down to harbourfront for the Canada Day festivities. There were tons of people and tons of vendors. I bought a blue scarf for next winter and I bought both myself and my sister keychains. When I was young, my sister bought me a necklace. The necklace had a clear tube pendant filled with liquid. In that liquid was a piece of rice with the word “Flow” on it. I found it so fascinating. I was less fascinated with it when the liquid in it either leaked out or evaporated…but I still wore it for a while. At the harbourfront, I saw a man making those same charms. I got keychains this time since I’d never wear a piece of rice around my neck nowadays. I got a little clear keychain pendant that looks like a turtle and got “Liz” written on it. I got the same one for myself too, saying “Flow”.
After that, we ventured down to Woodbine to go to the beach. My mom was happy to go as she had never been to the beach (previously known as the beaches). We walked on the sand by the water. Man was that sand HOT! I felt like my feet were on fire.
After stopping at pizza hut for some grub, we headed back on the bus, back to the subway, and back to harbourfront. We walked around some more and just had a great time. I love spending time with my Mommy.
Check out the pics of our fun time. Take note of our festively coloured shirts! Hehehe.
This sign was hanging up in the ttc streetcar. I thought the fact that there are all these male references in the sign was funny. Do we not have female streetcar drivers?? Wait…yes we do…I saw one today.
