Anyway, last Thursday we had our friend Véronique over for dinner so she could meet the baby. We had a great time and it was fun to hear about life in the "outside" world. (I feel a little cloistered here at times if you haven't noticed :) She wrote a collection of short stories that is being published in the spring so we are super excited for her. Her first of many literary successes, I am sure. I read one of her stories already and I was completely captivated - I can't wait to read the rest of them! Our plan is to also perhaps option one to adapt to a short film so I'll keep you posted on that.
On Friday Liliane and I went for a walk up to the Jean-Talon market to get some produce and to stop into the kitchen store. I was looking for a garlic grater à la Rachael Ray and found these cutie Christmas mugs! They were a super deal (99 cents each!) and the store owner was so excited to be finally getting rid of them that he threw in two for free so I now have 8 Christmas mugs:
Friday night at our house was pretty wild and crazy! Here is a picture of my two sweeties livin' it up:
I got to watch my DVD of "Hairspray" while these two dozed off. I can't believe it took me so long to finally see that movie and wow, did I ever LOVE it! Good music, great message, Christopher Walken, plus John Travolta in pantyhose - what more can you ask for?
On Saturday we were hanging out in the living room and Stéphane took these photos of Liliane and her halo:
I was trying to get her to smile but she was just into chewing on her finger:
I took these yesterday morning of my grumpy little jellybean. After a big day of socializing on Sunday, she wasn't too keen on getting back into the routine the next morning. This was her general reaction to morning rice cereal:
We slept in pretty late today (after getting up originally at 5:30 this morning - I told you the new schedule was early!) so I think it will be a lazy afternoon around here. Stéphane and I are going to a film premiere tonight (La Ligne brisée - a movie about boxing featuring cutie pie actors with washboard abs and sweaty pecs!) and my old Galafilm colleague Sophie will be staying with Liliane. It's our first in-house babysitting experience! I'm looking forward to getting out for a few hours. Full report on our evening in the next post!
