Loving retirement! The cupcakes are fabulous. We are sharing each one so we can try more! Had coconut last night--absolutely delicious! So far, they have all been so moist!

Good morning, MMC!

It is cold here again - brrrr! I just turned the furnace up to 70 as 64 had me shivering. The new part is in the furnace and it is loud and the floor shakes when it runs so I'm not sure if it is fixed right yet. Time will tell!

Mouse had her first dose of meds this morning - she is hiding now. I have to give her two more doses later today. She did eat a few crunchies this morning and seems to be a bit better. I was supposed to go out and run errands all day but decided to stay home as I cannot leave the furnace on when I am gone until I know for sure that the noise it is making is not anything bad. It is too cold out to leave the cats without heat for more than an hour or two. I am so going to get this place insulated better this coming spring/fall!

I have my brother's computer to use today so I am going to be working on store research. Trying to branch out into areas other than glassware - I need to know what to look for when I go out to estate/tag sales this coming spring/summer. I love learning!

Have a most MERRY day!

Good morning everyone!

Another 'Pines Day has arrived. Yes, it is nearing the official midway point of the week and the weekend is just around the corner. Yesterday was quite the adventure. Someone had dropped a "suspicious package" at one of the main bus stops, which is one over from where I work. Anyway, they had to divert traffic from this spot. On top of this, it was also snowing pretty well. In the end, it took me about an hour and a half to get home from work. Normally, it is only a 15 minute trip. Frustrating. But something good came from the delay!

As we were slowly moving along with traffic, I noticed two Christmas-style guard figures (not Nutcrackers) standing outside a store. Then, between them there was a wreath on the door that said "Merry Christmas!" Could it be? Then I looked up at the signage and read "Tinseltown." Yes. Ottawa now has a year-round Christmas store! I wanted to exit the bus immediately. Tinseltown was calling my name! I cannot believe that I did not know of this store's existence until yesterday. After doing some research, I have discovered that it opened quite recently (sometime last year). I informed Kim of my discovery and we agreed that we must go very shortly. I think I may need a little Christmas (store) fix.

My plans were a little messed up with my delay yesterday, so I could only do my 40 minute run at the gym. It was boring as usual. Still, it is decent rehab for my knee. I have another appointment tomorrow. It could be my final appointment, or my doctor could also recommend I get a $500 PRP Injection, which could have me healed in a just over a month if it works... The only real problem is that $500 is a lot to come out of my pocket. Still, it is mighty worth it if it works. We shall see.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great 'Pines Day! Carl has the place looking great.
