I bought a candle from Kroger grocery store the other day called, Pumpkin Harvest. It's a 3 wick 10 ounce candle and was on sale for $3.99 (regular price $4.99). I was afraid with it being so cheap it would not smell as good burning like some cheap candles I have purchased in the past. This smells fantastic!!! I plan to go buy a couple more! I had bought at Bath and Bodyworks the Pumpkin Cupcake candle which smells wonderful too but this new one I bought smells just as good and less expensive.

If you have a Kroger grocery store and love pumpkin spice scents I highly recommend it!

I am trying to catch up on the podcast. I listened to Merry Podcast #29 -- Counting Down to Christmas yesterday. I played it while I was cleaning the house and sure did enjoy it. Jayish interviews Joanna from Christmas TV History. It was very interesting. I enjoyed every bit of it! If you haven't heard it yet be sure to do so!

I hope you all have a Merry Day!

Good morning, MMC!

It was only 46 degrees when I woke up this morning. I wasn't expecting it to be so cold! We had to turn the heat on in my house.

I know I haven't been around very much. I just had surgery on Friday. It is nothing serious and I have known that I'd be getting the surgery for quite some time. It went smoothly except my heart rate jumped up to over 200 in recovery. Apparently during my surgery they gave me adrenaline so that caused the jump. They had to give me a beta blocker and then it dropped back down near 120. My resting heart rate is always near 100 so I wasn't too surprised considering the anesthesia and the other stuff they probably gave me. I had EKGs done while I was there and everything was fine. I got to go home the same day as the surgery.

Now that I have so much free time on my hands I will just have to spend it here

I am loving all of the fall candles and I cannot wait for the holidays, woo hoo!

yeah, I am able to get back on here! Was locked out for awhile there, not sure what I said to be sent to a time out!
I am off to my first shift back at subway in a bit. It is going to be strange to be back there again. Went over what is on the subs to refresh myself. Look forward to seeing some of my old customers again.
Have a great day everyone, I will try and check in on my break.

Double-Double for sure!

And our next Milestone -- one week from tomorrow -- the 3/4 mark to Christmas Day!
And then......
Well, being a Christmas person, I can't say it.
(At least, not yet!)

Rain yesterday morning, then clear skies for the remainder of the day, which was slightly on the warm and humid side. Not bad though.
We have started today dry at 63 degrees here in the capital city.

Well, Carl's got a bang-up open house planned for tomorrow.
Something about windows. Details to come.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, Everybody!
That count looks magnificent, Crown! 99 Days to go! Double digits always bring a smile to my face.

As for Carl's plans... Windows? Hmm. I wonder what that could be....

Good morning,

I watched the rest of the game last night and saw my Bengals pull out a tough win. I tried to come back here a few times during the game but couldn't get on, I was worried my IP address was blocked again but here I am. I dropped the boys off at school and then took a trip to KMart to look at their Halloween stuff, nothing too exciting this year, but their Harvest/Thanksgiving stuff was was very nice. I then went to check out Goodwill for their Christmas stuff, no good decorations, but I did get a Christmas DVD for $2, "Rick Steves European Christmas" I know you are a big fan of that CAH, so I got it partly because of your past reviews on it. (and the fact it was only $2)

I weighed myself this morning to see how I am doing with my "diet" after my cholesterol screening last week, and according to my scale I have lost 6lbs in a week. I was expecting 1-2 maybe 3lbs at most but 6?!!!! I must have been ingesting quite a bit of calories before I have gone to sensible portions, and I have cut out the candy for the most part, and the free donuts at work.

I have things to do around the house, I will be popping on throughout the day.
Have a great Tuesday!!

Good morning everyone!

We saw some apartments yesterday but they were out of our price range. We'd sooner stay here than downsize and pay more! That doesn't make much sense. I have an appointment this afternoon for what appears to be a decent apartment. We'll see how it goes. Otherwise, Kim and I have an appointment tomorrow morning for the apartment that we really want! It isn't listed online. There is just a small FOR RENT sign in front of the house. It's the first floor and basement of a home... and at a decent price. We're really hoping that it works out. It would be wonderful if they let us move into it in November but we are going to see if they will at least let us hold off until mid-October. The only problem is I don't know if I can afford double rent... We'll see! I think I can work it all out. I need a job!

It's a chilly morning in Ottawa. However, it is forecasted to warm up throughout the day. Highs of 17C/63F. Perfect for September. At least I can still comfortably wear shorts and a t-shirt. I want to hold on to that for as long as I can!

Well, I need to search for employment. I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday. A double digit Tuesday! We're on our way toward some monumental milestones! 2013 is moving fast. Let's hope it slows down when the Season arrives!

Congratulations on the "diet" and the win last night. I caught the final quarter and it was pretty tight!

I saw a pumpkin and vanilla candle on saturday at the shops, your post has made me decide to try it. I also bought a candle for 0.69p the other day and it actually smells nicer and stronger than some more expensive ones I have had. You are so right!

We saw some apartments yesterday but they were out of our price range. We'd sooner stay here than downsize and pay more! That doesn't make much sense. I have an appointment this afternoon for what appears to be a decent apartment. We'll see how it goes. Otherwise, Kim and I have an appointment tomorrow morning for the apartment that we really want! It isn't listed online. There is just a small FOR RENT sign in front of the house. It's the first floor and basement of a home... and at a decent price. We're really hoping that it works out. It would be wonderful if they let us move into it in November but we are going to see if they will at least let us hold off until mid-October. The only problem is I don't know if I can afford double rent... We'll see! I think I can work it all out. I need a job!

It's a chilly morning in Ottawa. However, it is forecasted to warm up throughout the day. Highs of 17C/63F. Perfect for September. At least I can still comfortably wear shorts and a t-shirt. I want to hold on to that for as long as I can!

Well, I need to search for employment. I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday. A double digit Tuesday! We're on our way toward some monumental milestones! 2013 is moving fast. Let's hope it slows down when the Season arrives!

Good luck on the apartment and job search.
