- called the public health about travel immunizations, especially for Swee'pea;
- made an appointment for Swee'pea's 9-month check-up and made sure a note was put in his file to discuss timing of 12-month immunizations since we will likely be in SA for his first birthday (how cool is that?)
- applied online for Swee'pea's birth certificate in preparation in applying for a passport
- walked downtown and picked up applications for passports for all three of us (ours will expire shortly after we return so I think we probably need them updated before we go
- discovered on above walk that the stroller (a Zooper Boogie) is missing an essential bolt and is falling apart; it's been leaning hard to the right and the frame has started looking warped for the last week or so; we made it home in one piece.
- drove to two (!) fabric stores looking for a veil for choreography we will be performing in June
- stopped by two (!) camera shops to learn about digital SLRs in preparation for my big 3-0 birthday party
- washed the dishes (twice!) and cooked dinner
- went to belly dance, almost on time
I also may be looking for a date to see Haft Vadi's Bewitching Bellydance Ball on October 28 in Kitchener. I'm hoping Sugar Daddy will hang out with Swee'pea and let me out on the town... tickets are $20 for that show.
And finally, via billets-doux, a webcam at a waterhole in South Africa. It looks a lot like the waterhole at Addo National Park, which we visited in 2005. This afternoon when I watched, nothing was happening in sight of the camera but the birds were singing and one in particular, a bit like a mourning dove or a pigeon but with a song unlike any I've heard in Canada, totally transported me back to the rondavel we stayed in at a great B&B outside the park (this is the very one we stayed in).
This morning, I also got obsessed with trying to capture the total cuteness of Swee'pea's chubby little toes. These are my favourites:
