Foggy day and a birthday celebration.

Where are we today ?
      Ok, now back up early as usual, got the computing and coffees done and a bit of a walkabout. Then to the garage in town to see what's happening. Some real heavy duty fog still at 7:30 this morning, but the sun soon burned it off.

      Then Suzie ready to head into Waterloo shortly after 9 o'clock. Stopped at my mothers for a short visit and coffee then off to Suzie's doctor appointment. From there to the KW Bookstore to exchange a few books for some we have not read. They would not take them all so she only got two new to us books. Better deals in Gand Bend at the Pinery Flea Market, we be back there in a couple weeks.
         While she was doing this I walked the block to the apple computer store to see about a new battery for my Mac Book Pro. This store is right by the Kitchener City Hall with a nice square, pond with fountains and even a few chess boards and tables for people to hang out at.

       Then back home for a late lunch and enjoy our books in the shade of this wonderful but cool summer day.
         Next on the agenda head out to the Mandarin Chinese Buffet in Cambridge to celebrate Grandson number 4's 7th birthday. His choice for his birthday supper. No pics, privacy issues here.
          This is a huge buffet and he enjoyed it with his Mom (daughter number 2), Dad and brother  and six grandparents. We all had a great feast, ate too much good food but had a wonderful get together everyone catching up with each other.
          A very good buffet, fresh food and great variety as well.
        We all had our fill and time to head on home. We enjoyed driving into a wonderful sunset coming into Plattsville.
        Another fun day spent with family celebrating a 7 year old's birthday too, and I did not even cook a meal. 
         Glad you could drop by for a peek and hope you come back again soon.

  1. That's unusual for you not to cook a meal. Did you feel like you were on vacation?

      You did not get the fog?

  4. In another lifetime, I used to ride a motorcycle through Kitchener but I can't remember where I would have been headed. Could it be on the way to Arnprior (spelling?) or Kingston.

    1. That could have been, if you were driving highway 7, it would be a nicer ride than the fast paced hwy 401.

  6. Happy Birthday to the Grandson as 7 years old is an important stage in their lives.
    Seeing those pictures of the Mandarin Buffet makes my mouth start to water bringing back pleasant memories. We limit ourselves to only one visit per year otherwise we'd have a serious weight issue.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes.
      We are not fans of any buffet as tend to overeat and suffer. But it was so tasty.
