Today we woke up to rain, and lots of it. We decided that we would just make a lazy day of it. Hannah and I enjoyed our indoor day of freedom whilst (that is my new favourite word) my dad worked on finding accommodation, possible car rentals and juggled around the itinerary. Recently I've decided to re-read a favourite series of mine, The Mysterious Benedict Society. I first picked up these books during the summer before I went into grade seven. My dad had brought them home from his library. I devoured the series quite quickly, but my dad only finished the first book. Before today I had already finished the first and I had been waiting for the second to come in. And lucky for me... it had! Excited I went to the library website and checked it out right away. I spent most of the day reading, and every hour or so Hannah would stop by asking if I wanted to do something together...unfortunately for her, I wasn't in that kind of mood.
Halfway through the day I stopped to make some lunch for us all. Lunch consisted of a pumpkin and carrot soup for my dad (which was so good!) and a shrimp and lobster soup for Hannah and me ('twas passable). We enjoyed this with some bread a crackers as well. Hannah and I cleared away the dishes and then washed and dried them too (we are such good daughters!). After this my dad asked us to go check out the games room that was located in the main building. Hannah and I suited up in raincoats and took the 30 second walk there. We found a ping pong table, foosball set and a large screen TV. However, all the buildings around this area are made of stone, and are quite cold. This large open area was especially frigid, and there was only one heater to heat the whole building. This heater was only allowed to be turned on if you planned to use the room...and I think it's safe to say that only by the time you were finished it would be a bearable heat. The two of us decided that it wasn't worth it at the moment so we walked back over to our home, and resumed what we had been doing. Later that evening we had hamburgers and broccoli (odd combination, but both were well cooked), and then settled down to eat some yummy treats (hazelnut/chocolate pie and cookies). Then we watched a movie called IQ, which we all thought was totally and fantabulously amazing. And a note to my mom who refuses to watch it: stop refusing to watch it...you'll love it...it's great. Then we watched an Elementary. Then we went to sleep because we thought we should be decently rested before we went out and did something with our lives. Not saying that we didn't do productive things today... okay fine, my dad was the only one who was productive.
