Getting ready

Churchill Square in downtown Edmonton.  This brewhouse's lights change colour.  There are a series of giant, plastic walled "icebergs" for various events prepping for New Year festivities.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but after being up almost all night making tourtiere, I need the caffeine!

The things you see...

My older daughter and I headed to the bookstore this evening to do a bit of shopping. We had split up to look at different things when she suddenly came up to me, grabbed my sleeve and dragged me across the store. There sat a wagon with a bin holding a tortoise, of all things.  She asked somebody about it later. It turns out that there is a regular customer who comes in every Sunday with his tortoise and does his shopping while leaving it in an aisle near the door.
To the guy who takes his tortoise out for walks, thanks for making my day!
