i was wandering down commerical drive, going to do my grocery shopping, empty milk bottles in backpack, "the be good tanyas" on my ipod, when I bumped into n. she took me round for hot chocolate at her house, which is a lovely big hippie house with spices in jars and three kinds of milk, none cow-based. i met her housemates, including the one year old. it's been ages since i got to play with a baby. he was a friendly bubbly kid in furry mec.ca overalls.
then i was walking back through the gentle rain, thinking what a nice place the world is and how good it is to live in vancouver, and i went past a florists. i went in and look what i found!
i had a nice chat to the florists, explained about wattle and how to spell it (funny to hear yr own accent echoed), then went and bought up masses of fruit and some leeks and more milk in nice square glass bottles.
now i have to get going on this assignment. i have kangaroo paw! it all smells so good. i miss the smell of gumtrees.
