Good morning! I spoke to Carl this morning. He mentioned that his camel friends who attended the Pines last week have made it clear they will not be attending tonight. This is apparently because of the way Snowflake and Sugar conducted themselves. It is sad when a few out of control ones tarnish the image of an entire group! They did go on to reiterate how much of a gentleman Made is, so perhaps all hope is not lost.

Have a great Wednesday!

Good 'Pines Day morning, everyone!

Windows are open and good times are to be had. What a grand idea by Carl! The Season is coming so fast that if you close your eyes and take a deep breath, you can almost smell Christmas in the air.

It was a chilly walk to our latest apartment showing this morning in Ottawa. Temperature were about 6c/43f. It really enjoyed it. Interestingly enough, I also enjoyed the apartment! It is quite spacious and exactly what we are looking for. It was a one bedroom plus den. The layout is very nice. It also includes a backyard patio, where I can (finally) barbecue. The apartment hasn't really been advertised, so Kim and I are under the impression that we were one of the first ones to look at it.

The only two problems is that they want us to move in on October 1st, which means that we'd be paying double rent for two months! Double ouch! And laundry isn't onsite, which was a big hope of mine. I think I can settle for no laundry, however. It will be tough, but I can do it! We have two more showings today, then I think we will submit our application this afternoon.

The best part? Decorating a new house for Christmas!! Kim and I are very excited to figure out how we're going to decorate for the Season. Of course, we're also excited to show all of you, too! Oh, the extra excitements of Christmas!

It's the second last 'Pines Day of Christmas. Perhaps the last 'Pines Day before the debut of Crown's world famous Christmas Blossoms thread, the most anticipated thread of the year. Speaking of which, I wonder how Carl celebrates the debut of Blossoms. I am sure he loves the different decoration ideas!

Two more showings and job searching lay ahead for today. I hope you're all having a great Wednesday! These double digits are a sight to see!

Pumpkin spice is the new bacon, I swear.
You're definitely right on the nose with that one, MC. I hadn't thought about that before.

I'm sure you could find plenty of volunteers here to buy for. Show of hands?

Marketing 101: Put "Pumpkin Spice" on the label and put it on the shelf after Labor Day. It'll sell itself. (But not to me!)

But you're quite right. Nothing can take the place of bacon in the hearts of America.

Good morning,

Just finished watching "Christmas With The Kranks" it was a nice surprise to see it on Starz this morning, and I love that movie. It usually is one of the first movies we watch during the holiday season, so it has kicked my anticipation for Christmas into high gear!!!!!

I am dealing with my usual case of Wednesday don't want to go to work affliction, just have to remind myself that everyday brings us closer to Christmas.

I hope you are all enjoying your morning.
