Hey Don't forget the coffee. Or maybe I'll just bring the coffee with me!

Well today is going to be centered around watching the announcement of the first class inducted into the nascar hall of fame. The rest of the day will be spent doing laundry and some cleaning. Hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning everyone! I did not want to get out of my warm bed this morning. That's the second time this year so far. It was freezing this morning with frost everywhere. Right now, it's 39F and on the slow rise. We're forcast to maybe get a little snow this week. So exciting!!

Today, I will be doing laundry and continuing to unpack those boxes in the living room. I swear they're multiplying overnight.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!

Check your windows to see if you have a draft coming from them. If so get some caulking rope and seal up around the window where the window and the frame meet or put plastic over the window. This should help a little. During the day opening the curtains where the sun is shining through and let the sun heat up the room and then close the curtains when the sun is gone. If the floors are hard wood and area rug will help.

Anyone know of a good place to buy charms and charm bracelets? Doesn't have to be real cheap. But not real expensive either. I've looked locally in the stores and just haven't seen anything that I liked or that I felt fit who it was for.

Good morning, everyone!

It's Wednesday. Mid-week already! The weather is quite cold here today. Ottawa is currently sitting at 1C and -2C with windchill. In other words, 34F and 28F. We are below freezing with windchill! Another sign that the season is right around the corner.

Not a whole lot going on today. Work and then a much needed practice tonight at 9 PM in order to get some last minute touches in before Canadian Nationals this weekend in Montreal.

It's great to see the count now has under a month remaining! We're getting there. And the posts... They just keep increasing!

I cheated a little bit last night. A Christmas song came on my iPod as I always have it on shuffle. I could not resist to changing the song. While it's not traditional - those are all specifically on my Christmas playlist - Anbelin's cover of "Baby, Please Come Home" definitely allowed me to celebrate the one month until the Christmas Season mark. Now, I just hope that I can hold off until November 13th or even the November 11th TSO performance, considering that's Christmas music!


Well, have a great day, everyone! It's supposed to be very cold and sunny here today as we reach a daytime high of 43F! Beautiful weather. Enjoy your Wednesday!
