was spent watching Terminal City Roller Derby, yarn shopping, Fluevog shopping, hanging out, eating, making great food.
It was again a bit of a challenge to go to a derby game and not be reffing from the stands. I didn’t know who to cheer for, so I cheered for the zebras. Ha.
this was in a different venue from the one we went to a couple of years ago (which was a dark hockey arena). Great viewing experience!
Ande made (well, I helped a little wee bit) an amazing supper on Sunday – Black Vinegar Ribs. Recipe here. We got the pork ribs “country style” so they were big and meaty and delicious. I will have to make this here some time.
On Saturday and Sunday we went downtown and walked around for a few hours with Bing. He was exhausted!
He does so well in public – everyone loves him and comments on what a handsome lad he is!
Sunday night we tried to take a commemorative selfie:
you can see how well that turned out.
So of course we hit up the Fluevog store on Granville (and also went to the Gastown one to pick up). I had carefully reviewed the website and decided which ones I wanted to try on. These shoes were released in the fall when I was in Vancouver, but only in black or red. They just didn’t appeal to me, but when I saw they had them in some new colours, when I saw this blue, I was all over it!
I put them on right away and wore them for the rest of my trip. Super comfy and fun!
The other ones that spoke to me were these:
Fluevog Esoteric Temptations “Odette”
Again, very comfy shoes! They have taken the “Swordfish” toe and put it on a mary jane style pump.
As always, our favourite Fluevogologist was there to attend to us. Thanks again, Allan at the Granville store!
I’ll do a separate post about the yarn.
