Before I even start my share, thank you to Emily from Nerd in the Brain Blog for her first, of many, hosting duties! I think we are going to have much fun! If you want to join in, just click on the image above, and you will be brought over to Emily’s home, where you can join in.
If we were having coffee… oh look, it’s noon! Would you prefer something else? It is Saturday, you know, you can have whatever you’d like. I had a late start so I’m on my second coffee. This cold that has been hounding me since last Thursday makes it taste a little wonky but it’ll do. I fear I have caught that two-week bug I keep hearing about. I ended up finally going to the doctor’s on Thursday, knowing full well that it was “too soon” for her to see if there is an infection or not so I got a prescription for an x-ray for my sinuses for next week if I feel the need… yeah. Well. I’ll be fine.
If we were having coffee, you would see that I got a new ‘do on Tuesday! Yes, it was time. Valentine’s Day Present no. 1. I don’t like to keep the same hairstyle for too long (something a former hairdresser of mine told me. I asked him his opinion on women, age and length of hair and his response was: What ages a woman is keeping the same hairstyle for years on end. Somehow I got an image of Rachel from Another World and knew exactly what he meant! Thanks, Joseph. I follow your advice, though I no longer have you as coiffeur. You are downtown and I haven’t worked downtown in ohmigosh! 20 years!) So, here’s the new look. Will never obtain the same look as the hairdresser does and it will take a week before I can do anything with it (usually does after having it long for so long!) I happened to have been feeling rather well that day so I didn’t cancel my appointment (though I warned Françoise that I was still sick – she told me to come in anyway). I paid for it by feeling worse then horrible by Thursday – which is why I finally relented and went to see the doctor. Anyway.
Valentine’s Day present no. 2 was flowers to me from me with all my love… Then my eldest felt guilty that I had bought him some Kinder Surprise, so he picked up sushi and chocolate for me!
And how could I forget! There is a Tim Horton’s (THE coffee shop all over Canada – but don’t tell them, I am not in love with their coffee) beside the hairdresser and I hadn’t had my coffee yet, so I picked up a cup. Dye job lasts a good 45 minutes so…. As I left the salon, Martine, one of the hairdressers calls to me: Hey, you want me to throw out your coffee? To my “yes” she said, wait, let’s roll up the rim. Well, I’ll be darned. I got a free cup of coffee! So I brought said winning empty cup and got myself another for the drive home.
Maybe I should have bought a lottery ticket…
On Wednesday, we got quite the snowstorm. I’d go so far as to call it a blizzard. Man oh man! Bummer for the school kids that it started after they all got to school. Buahahaha! It was over just in time for them to come home too!
As a result from all this snow, rain, more snow, my Tempo (winter tent-like-thing for cars) is buckling under the weight. Because I have been so sick, I didn’t think of telling the boys to remove some. Too late. The damage is done. We’ll have to replace some screws – again. Like the first year after Mick passed away. This was HIS department!! Sigh.
Oh! And before I forget, I finished reading our very own Trent McDonald’s book of short stories, Seasons of Imagination. A most wonderful collection of short stories. Some of them really stayed with me and I almost wished they would go on (though they were complete stories in and of themselves…) Worth picking up, I tell you!
Oh. My. God! I am awful. How could I forget to thank my sister for going out of her way to buy me meds from the pharmacy, and bring me her left-over chicken noodle soup! Thank you, Lisa. You always come through in times of need! I love you, Sister! xoxoxo
I think I’ve taken up enough of your time for today. I wish for you all a most wonderful day!
Always, with lotsa love!
