|the joy of looking at plants at canadian tire is that they're ever so informatively labelled: cactus, succulent, tropical foliage, fern. i'm guessing this is a pachyphytum.
8-21 short mailbox walk, 2 km.
lots of errands today: canadian tire for an umbrella dryer, london drugs for a video card for the paramour, wholesale store for some groceries and memory foam mattress pads (unsuccessful, not in stock in the size we need), food country for the eggs i forgot at the wholesale store, and a couple plants that needed rescue (a gaillardia and an amazingly sunset-coloured echinacea).
when i got back home, the power was out, and stayed out for a while.
and now i have fresh sourdough bread, brie, and cherries. and ebooks to read before i sleep.
