So between the food, the race, the laughing, and the talking about football....it was a great night.

Today, I'm going to sit here and drink coffee for the next few hours, then I'm going to go to work. After work, more nursery time and then I'm cooking supper for my lovely wife. She doesn't know it, but this is the day that we (just me and her) celebrate her becoming Dr. Wifey in 13 days....DR.!!!!!

So, I'm off....have a great day and I will catch y'all tonight!
Have fun celebrating!! =]

Congratulations to her!!!

A Good Sunday morning, to you all, friends and fellow countdown enthusiasts!

I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating yesterday's 200-day to the Christmas Season Milestone. Most of all, I hope you're ready to celebrate today's mini-Milestone! Yes, today is one of those hidden gems that will certainly make you smile.

Smile? Why is that, you ask? Simply because we have 199 reasons to do so! The 200s of the countdown to the 2013 Christmas Season has past and the final triple digit Milestones lay ahead. Until we reach those, however, we can all enjoy in the wonders that the Spring and Summer seasons bring! OK. No more delay. Let's get to that wonderful countdown!

Days to the Season: 199
Days to Christmas Day: 241


Doesn't that look great? We have done it, friends. 199 reasons to smile, indeed. Onward and upward! As for our next goal. You'll be happy to hear that the next milestone is officially two weeks from Wednesday! In fact, I will provide you with an exact countdown for this, too.

Days to 1/2 to the 2013 Christmas Season: 19

There appears not to be a cloud in the sky and the bright Spring sun is shining down on Ottawa today. In fact, I think we are in for a real treat. Today will be the warmest day of the year thus far! The forecast calls for sun all afternoon and temperatures to reach 21c/70f. With the rough Spring we've had, the warm weather is quite welcome in Canada's Capital. Hopefully Mother Nature will celebrate by encouraging those beautiful trees to bud shortly!

Currently, we show 12c/54f degrees in Canada's Capital. I hope that you're all seeing some beautiful Spring weather, too.

Have a Super Sunday, friends! Enjoy the final day of the weekend. Tomorrow, I look forward to becoming a spectator, once again, as Crown re-assume his rightful position of leading us toward the wonderful celebrations of Christmas 2013.

Had a rough few days with the man am looking after. hes now in the hospital . and am ok with that even if it does mean running to there
Yesterday they moved him to a cancer ward and he went pure mad and i mean mad, he was all confused anyway as he is on morphine tablets and he has a infection as well. he was really bad to the nurses. and they said they said come up and try and settle him as they were gonna maybe have to give him somthing to knock him out.
Anyway i asked nurse to keep a eye on him as he chews.bits and sucks his tablets . and he is on a moprhine slow release tab. which has to be swallowed whole. i said this to the nurse she looked at me and said no not really, i did not have access to the internet i wood have proved to her that what i said was right , like his teeth were blue where he had been chewing the infection tablets . and this unit is supposed ot be a unit that is good with cancer.
Ok enough of that ~} hoping you all have a good sunday even if its only laying in front of the telly
