Another weekend has past and we're nearing the end of the first month of 2013. It was an enjoyable weekend here in Ottawa. Kim and I managed to stay in on Friday and then met with some friends on Saturday night. It was good times. Yesterday was spent mostly cleaning and (for me) doing homework.

It looks like we could be in for a treat today. We should receive about 5cm of snow this afternoon. The rest of the week won't be pretty either. Rain and freezing rain - and lots of it! That's for Tuesday and Wednesday. We'll see how that turns out.

I don't think we have many plans for this week. A friend informed me that due to our running of a local rink, we were given free tickets for the Ottawa Senators and Washington Capitals game tomorrow night. I'm a fan of neither team, but it should be an entertaining game to watch.

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and is looking forward to the next as well. It will be nice to flip the calendar on Friday!

Always nice to see you, Brent. Glad your weekend was so nice. I hope your knee is doing better !! xo

The Tivoli sounds great! I wish there was something like that in my area. It's rare any classics play on the big screen around here.
My husband is a longtime film collector, and a couple years ago we splurged on a video projector, so we keep a large screen up in the basement and have classics on the big screen whenever we want! We also have two movie-poster frames embedded in the wall so we can display vintage movie posters. But sometimes I miss seeing them with an audience. We've attended a few collectors' film festivals, and those are a blast---collectors showing their rarest and best to other collectors, plus a 35mm film show in a vintage theater of recently restored films.

Not bad, but I would have preferred a peanut butter & jelly sandwich.

Girl Scout cookie season has started and some folks are selling them at work. Why must I give into the sweet, seductive siren song of the thin mints every year? The thin mints is a demanding mistress, but each year I find myself back in her arms.

Oh well, there goes the diet. Happy Monday, everyone.

Thin Mints are so DELICIOUS !!! I also like their peanut butter cookies, can't remember their name !! xo

The first one I saw was at Walmart and it was purple. I liked it but decided to check out Academy before making a final decision. Then I came across this one at Academy that has gears, the other did not have gears and I really wanted that feature. It happened to be purple as well! I love the cruiser style bikes, they are old timey type and just more comfortable to me. I took it for a ride yesterday and for a short time this morning.

I plan to get a child's seat so my granddaughter can go riding with me.

Wayne and I decided that the bikes will be our Valentine presents to each other. He will get one in a couple of weeks. I doubt his will be purple with flowers on it. Ha ha!

I think I will decorate it for Christmas by adding battery operated Christmas lights and add a wreath on the back.

I will be back later today to catch up! I gotta run right now!!!

IT'S BEAUTIFUL !!!!!! How nice of Wayne..but then he is such a nice man....I envy you but am happy for you too !! xoxoxoxo
