Good morning everyone!

I wasn't able to stop by yesterday. What a busy day! I did, however, hold my own celebrations for the fact that it was one month until the Christmas Season! 30 today and seeing 29 tomorrow will be nothing short of extraordinary!

Despite Thanksgiving being today, we celebrated yesterday - as I believe most people do because of traveling, etc. It was a delicious dinner filled with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and of course, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, apple crisp and a few other delicious deserts. I could barely control myself! All in all, I think it is good that meals like that only happen about twice per year - at least for me... Of course, I will be looking forward to the next one - Christmas Day - even more!

72 days until Christmas Day?! I think I will have to make a massive effort to treasure every inkling of Christmas I see from now on. Not that I don't already, but I think I will have to make an even bigger/conscious effort of appreciation. Hopefully I will be able to go to the Rideau Centre sometime this week to see if I can find some Christmas displays! I'm sure that The Bay may have their Christmas Street on display very shortly!

OK. Well, Kim and I have to drive back to Ottawa shortly. I hope everyone in Canada enjoyed their Thanksgiving and everyone south of the border has done the same for their Columbus Day! There are no remaining holidays until the beginning of the Christmas Season, although some may get Remembrance/Veterans' Day off. Such a wonderful feeling. Our favourite Season will be in here in 30 days!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Glad you had a great day yesterday!! Have a safe drive back!!!

Have a great Monday!

My prayers are on the way!!

Sure - I'll just take a leave of absence. I'll just tell them I'm taking FMLA, I'm taking care of a family member. I mean, you are like family - they'll never know.
