Good evening everyone!

It's a beautiful mid-September evening in Canada's capital. Despite having a tournament all weekend, we still had our regular Monday practice tonight. It wasn't greatly attended, but it was a good time. Temperatures were comfortably in the mid to upper 40s. Great weather for a practice.

Now, I think I'll watch Monday Night Football and then go to bed. We have a bit more apartment hunting ahead of us tomorrow!

Have a great night!

I missed being on here yesterday as I was giving the knee that bothers me so much a rest by not using it much. That meant no computer as I forgot to charge it and could not use it unless I was sitting at my desk. It was feeling lots better until I squatted down a few hours ago to adjust the gate that blocks the stairs down to the basement - Palmer is not allowed down there. I used my time off wisely - read the majority of Dan Brown's Inferno.

This area is under a frost advisory. It was too windy to cover the garden when it was light out and now that it is dark, the wind had died down. I really hope my gardens will be okay! I did pick a couple of baskets of green tomatoes just to be on the safe side. I would go out and cover the plants, but there are too many ground mole holes - dangerous in the dark!

Paperwork is awaiting me yet this evening so I will bid all of you a very MERRY night!
I hope your knee is feeling better!!! And I hope your garden survives - no problem!!!

I rested a lot today, and applied to a few different places. We really need the money, so please keep your fingers crossed.
Sorry I haven't commented on anything, I did get caught up but am pretty darn exhausted. Thinking of you all, you're always close to my heart.

I'm glad you were able to check in! I hope you sleep better tonight! Always keeping my fingers crossed & prayers going up for you in your job search!

After all this 100 Days To Christmas talk today, I realized I better get started on my Christmas afghan or it will have to wait until next year! Soooo...that's what I did tonight! I only have the foundation row + 1 1/2 more rows done, but it's a start!!! We are at 56š now - supposed to be 44š for our walk in the morning. We'll have to bundle up!!

Hope you are all having a great night. I think I'll be calling it quits sooon! Sleep tight!

Good evening,

Just watching the Bengals vs Steelers game, it is gonna be a nail biter it seems. Day off tomorrow, I have nothing planned but relaxing. I hope the Bengals can get something going soon.

Good night all.


Go Bengals!!!
