Starting to get my desk set up. The frames I have all my pictures of the kids in broke so we are getting new ones. In the mean time Anna drew me a picture of herself so I'd have one!

And Mgramsey, that's a mini statue of the Duke!

We had a great time last night. I am sleepy today - coudln't believe it when my alarm went off this morning. My friends kept me out way too late last night! A nap might be in order when I get off work at noon! Maybe a scary movie & a nap?! But I'm really in the mood to cook/bake....and put up fall decorations!! We'll see!!!

I hope you are all having a GREAT day!!!!

It was a drastic change!!!!! It feels great out though!!!!


Well the scary movie would keep me awake, so I say skip it, take an hour nap, then get up and cook and decorate!!!

Well, say there Pilgrim. Is the Duke a distant relative, such that he gets to be in such esteemed company on your desk?

Hey everyone!

I don't know how I missed this, but apparently the Barenaked Ladies are playing three Christmas shows in Ottawa on Dec 12-14. Hits and Holidays Songs. I'd imagine they will be playing a few more of their Christmas classics than hits. Anyway, Kim and I just found out today and purchased balcony seats to see BNL perform at the National Arts Centre here. It should be a great time! Very excited!

I have wanted to see BNL live since I was about six years old when their debut album Gordon was released in Canada and the song Enid was a number one hit... at least it was in Canada. Of course, that longing increased even more with the release of Barenaked for the Holidays. And now, I'll finally be seeing them live! Very excited. The Season is only two months away and BNL is three. Can't wait!

Love seeing BNL live. One of the best concerts was in Portland Maine with Guster opening up for them. Such a great night,.

It would feel good out there if I had more than shorts & a short sleeve shirt on. It is warming up a little now though. But that air is chilly!
I brought my friend a fountain pop this afternoon - she babysits out of her home & she was texting all morning how she wanted a fountain pop - so I brought her one. Now I am sitting in my recliner w/ an afghan, I turned on TCM & logged on to MMC. My head might start nodding soon. Ha ha!
