Saskatoon – Day 3
May 7, 2010 § Leave a comment
Yesterday was Mendel Day.
We walked around downtown in the snow again and we found the Mendel Art Gallery (we had gone here last year in Katimavik on an excursion from Moose Jaw) In the Art Gallery there was an exhibit that was a collection of art from Saskatoon schools, so the artists were kids from kindergarten to grade 12. A lot of them were sooo impressive, really an ego crusher when the Grade ones are way better then anything i can make. But pretty pretty. Yay. The main exhibit was 3 artists on the subject of ‘the innocent years’ one of them was from Marjane Satrapi, who made the books Persepolis, childhood years and Return Voyage. She released a movie recently of her books, filmed in black and white animation telling her story of being an Iranian Girl growing up in the war and all her family struggles and then being cruched by her love life, and earning how to live strong against the rules of her society, wearing veils, and covering the figure and no makeup and all that. Interesting story and we watched most of it in the exhibit and there were storyboard panels on the wall.
Attached the art gallery there is a conservatory with flowers and its very relaxing to breathe in the air and listen to the fountain. Mmmhmm. Oh! And scott made us sushi! Yummm…. Seiten and mushroom sushi is Sooo Good.
Today we visited my Auntie Miggs, Mom’s best friend from grade 2 on, she’s a cutie and her apartment was so bizarre but so cool. Her apartment is 4 rooms spread throughout the hallway of the apartment floor, so she has two neighbours that walk through what is technically the middle of her house, its not that she has 4 apartments, but like, she has four keys, one opens to the water closet, another to the bathroom, another to the living room, and the last is the kitchen. In the middle of the foyer is her coatrack. Its insane! We saw her trinkets and photos and met Francis, her super soft blind cat who makes weird noises when moved.
Had Lunch at ‘Calories’ – tasty food place, and there was portabello mushroom sandwiches and Saskatoon berry lemonade and creme brule and all that yummy goodness. Fancy and tasty and filled us up. Good eatings.
Now its 2 hours before we leave on the bus again and I feel terrible, actually since we left Calgary i’ve been feeling worse and worse, my bodys sore ( I got a massage from lexi which felt really good, but i need like, 3 more hours of that) I have a headache, and I am farting and peeing like theres no tomorrow. Super weird and i just dont feel like moving anymore.
