Choosing a Perfect Moment

Some days are relaxing and some days are quite full. Today was a full day, and it was a good day.  I did a number of things and I would like to give you a quick rundown.

I had McDonalds coffee. This isn’t a big deal, but lately people at work have been debating the taste of McDonald’s coffee and Tim Horton’s coffee quite a bit and I thought I should see what all the fuss was about.  It didn’t hurt that the coffee was on sale for one dollar.  It tasted okay for the price and helped supplement today’s coffee needs.

My girlfriend’s brother just had a baby boy and she wanted to buy him some clothes–the baby, not the brother. This brought us to a cute kids clothing store in the mall.  Kids today certainly have more stylish clothes than I did.  Maybe stylish clothes existed, but I didn’t get to wear it.  It was a cute little adventure to watch her put together outfits for her new nephew.

I had a chance to drop in at the train store. The price of trains and train related stuff has certainly climbed since I was last there.  Additionally, the amount of N scale stuff had shrunk quite a bit.  I hope this is just representative of this store and its clientele rather than across the entire industry.

I visited the Japanese store to get some caramels and look at some foods. The place was rather crowded and doing booming business.  I wasn’t fearful that business was down, but I was quite surprised at the number of people shopping there.  I don’t remember having to line up behind so many people.  I bought some inarizushi and a rice ball.  Both were delicious.

To cap it all off my girlfriend made me a delicious dinner. She probably called it lunch, but since it was my biggest meal of the day, I referred to it as dinner.  That’s just how life goes.

We did a number of other things, but I think you get the drift of how the day went. The only question is which one is Today’s Perfect Moment.

Upon reflection, it is clear that Today’s Perfect Moment is watching my girlfriend go crazy about her new nephew. She was so excited to pick out an outfit for him.  She was also so excited to see pictures and watch video of the little guy.  It was wonderful to see and experience with her.

    A new baby in the family is always exciting. When my cousin had her daughter I bought her 4 frilly pink outfits with cats on them. I don’t have kids, but at least I got to dress my little cousin for a while. 🙂

    I would definitely chose a Tim Horton’s over McDonalds ANY day. That may, in part, be because it would mean I would very happily be back in Canada. 😄

    Oops, first time I have seen this format. I didn’t mean to be anonymous.

    Even though I don’t want kiddos myself, I always think it’s so cute when boyfriend gets giddy over them, too. 😊
