I hope your parents can make it, too. Either way, though, you already have the perfect day!!! Your plans of sitting in front of the fire and watching Christmas movies sounds even better!

I just hope my parents can still come.

We now have a winter storm warning, heavy snow, and they're concerned about the power lines & possible power outages.

If it's too dangerous for my parents to travel, Harlowe & I will just turn on the fireplace & watch a Christmas movie.

Have a blessed day everyone.

Have a restful weekend to gear up for your new job, Brent. How was your birthday?

I hope you all had a great time at the 'Pines yesterday. Carl sure pulled out all the stops for the first day of May! Today should be an eventful day. It's my final full-day at work. Tomorrow is half-day due to a physio appointment. I like a few of the people that I work with, but I'm ready to move on. Glad to have the opportunity to start a brand new position right away on Monday. Having no downtime and a constant income is exactly what I need.

Today is also forecasted to be the warmest day of the week. Temperatures should reach about 25c/77f. Beautiful weather! The long range forecast has Ottawa with sunny skies until after the following weekend. I doubt that will happen, but it looks great! The trees are either beginning to bud or have leaves make their first appearance of the year and Spring has finally arrived in Canada's capital.

Not many plans for today. I haven't been to the gym since Monday - due to my birthday and acupuncture yesterday. I think I will have to return for a little bit today, although I will not be able to do any leg exercises. I'm trying to ensure that I receive the full benefit of acupuncture. As for tomorrow, I don't know if I will be able to get into the gym either since my dad should be arriving around 3 PM. We'll see how it goes!

Well, I should get to work. I have a bit of things that need to be cleared from my desk. I don't know how much time I will have to work tomorrow, so I should really make sure I don't leave anything behind.

Have a great Thursday, everyone! The weekend is in sight. Let's continue this descent to the first weekend of May!

I came across this video on the tornado and it's aftermath of my town. It doesn't seem like it was nearly 2 years ago that it happened.

She is about the same. A trip to Tony's is a big deal for her now.

Thanks for asking.
