I’m back! My boyfriend’s idea to go to Quebec city for the weekend was just so perfect! We had a lot of fun and it was so relaxing. We wanted to come back on saturday after visiting the Botero exhibit, but as usual, we had a little change of plans.
There was a huge snow storm all over the south of Quebec (and other provinces and States as well). In Quebec city, the storm started to hit during the night between friday and saturday. Saturday morning was really bad. We decided to go to the museum anyways, but it was pretty clear we weren’t going to come back to Montreal on that day, it was just too dangerous.
So we got in our little rental car (with very bad tires), and drove (more or less) to the museum, getting stuck in the snow along the way (we even had to be pushed!). We managed to get to it and… yup, it was closed for the day! It’s a good thing we were both in good spirits, we just thought we had a good story to tell. So my poor boyfriend, after almost getting stuck in the parking lot at the museum, managed to go back on the road (he’s from New Brunswick, he’s used to this weather :teehee: ), stopped at a grocery store on the way to get all the food we needed for the day (we almost got stuck again), and then went back to the hotel (where we got really stuck in the parking lot). :roflhard: Needless to say, we didn’t use the car again on that day.
So we didn’t do much on saturday. We stayed in the room, watched tv, played scrabble, read, and I knitted a little, of course. It was so relaxing, exactly what I needed. For supper we walked to a nearby restaurant which was really good, it was out of the question to take the car again :teehee:
We finally went to the museum sunday morning. I loved the exhibit a lot, very colourful, naive, and deep at the same time.
So now… back to reality. The appartment is a complete mess, I have to do my taxes, do some corrections to my thesis, laundry, groceries… :pout: I wish I could spend the day in bed and knit! :teehee:
I’m hoping to get my knitpicks order today too! :happydance:
