I've been meaning to pick that book up since I first saw an ad for it on FB. Thank you for the review!

I listened to her cough until my alarm went off at 5.00 a.m. At least the doctor said her lungs sound clear. I guess it's just going to take some time to go away. Anyway,I'm just trying to catch up with all of my chores now. I wanted to make beef stew in the crock pot but I didn't have time to throw it together this morning. I'll have to make it on the stove top later.
I hope everyone is well and having a great day. I will pop back in later tonight!

Glad your appointment went well and hoping your daughter feels better soon!

These all sounds so wonderful and so great of you to share your talents!

She really had so many medical issues after a messed up surgery and never felt good. Still, she managed to make Christmas so special and it never showed. I think I get my love for Christmas from her. It was passed down to my mom and myself. I just watched a Christmas movie that was one of her favorites and now I can't seem to get her off of my mind!

I hope you all are having a good evening. Thanks again for your prayers for my mom! She's still not better which has us concerned that it's something potentially serious. If it were a virus the fever should be dwindling by now. On top of that, she hasn't had an appetite for a couple of weeks. Guess we'll know more next week when the doctor gets in. Good night! Sleep well and sweet dreams!
My prayers continue for your mom, Jennifer! What wonderful memories you have of your grandma!!

Just checking in for a quick moment. I don't think I will have an opportunity to do so at any other time today. I am currently on prep while supplying at the same high school I have been since Wednesday. I kind of like it. Again, it's nice to only drive 25 minutes. And, of course, it's nice to become familiar with the staff and students.

In regards to my time being minimal, I have to go to the gym as soon as I return home from work today. Then, more importantly, I will be achieving a childhood dream this evening. Ever since I was about five yeras old, I have wanted to see the Barenaked Ladies live in concert. From the first time I heard "Enid," I fell in love with the Canadian band. Nowadays, I still enjoy them, but not nearly as much as that five-year-old. I can honestly say that they were my first favourite band.

Anyway, this evening, Kim and I will be seeing the Barenaked Ladies at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Hits and Holiday Songs! As many of you know, their album Barenaked For the Holidays is one of - if not top - my top favourite Christmas albums. Seeing them play their Christmas songs live will be yet another dream come true. I can't wait!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday. We're really closing in on our big day. Of course, we're also so close to reaching single digits! Merry Christmas, everyone!
I hope you and Kim enjoy the evening out!

The water and the waves formed dunes of ice so instead of looking like a regular beach in the winter it looked like glaciers. I think it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

And I SHOULD sample those cookies to make sure they came out just right.
Enjoy the snow and be safe, MerryCarey!
