Good morning everyone!

First things first. I was very busy Friday afternoon and could not visit following my visit to Tinseltown - the new year-round Christmas store in Ottawa. It is a small store, but it was quite the experience! Upon entering, I was greeted with the unmistakable sounds of Bing Crosby. It was magical. Christmas music, colours and displays surrounded me. There were two unfortunate parts, however. I forgot my phone at work. No pictures. And I only had about 10 minutes to browse. The good news? I will be returning this Saturday with Kim. At least one of us will be able to take photos then.

I had a pretty decent weekend. It was relatively busy. Kim and I went out for a nice dinner on Saturday evening. I was also able to return to the dojo for athletic conditioning on Saturday afternoon. I had not been to the dojo since December of 2011... I've been wanting to go since this past June, but I was finally given the OK to attempt for my rehabilitation. After my return, my knee feels great. It keeps progressing and I will be very surprised if I am not at full strength by mid-March. Finally!

We're now officially 10 months until Christmas Day! Following today, no more double digit months to Christmas. Hooray! The weather here has become quite mild, too. We're currently about 2c/-2 (36f/28f). The upcoming forecast continues to appear fairly mild as well. Spring may be right around the corner.

Have a great Monday, everyone. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Perhaps the next will come quickly, too!

Rain is back in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow then winter tries to make a comeback later in the week with snow showers in the forecast for Wed - Fri.

I love cold weather and snow but Friday is the opening game of our high school baseball season. The last couple of years we had snow showers during the season opener. The perfect solution would be a couple of feet of snow and the game be postponed. I think that is what I'll pray for...

Have a blessed day everyone.
I would love to see that view!! sounds amazing!!

I hope you get a lot of snow for Friday, and then beautiful weather for the rescheduled season opener!!

Have a great week, mgramsey!

I just got an email from my next door neighbor that reads:

10 more months until Christmas!!!

She told me that she one time left her Christmas tree up until July and lit it every day because it would not die. She said right after 4th of July that it finally died.


She has been the perfect neighbor since we have moved here. She loves Christmas like me and loves animals like me! She loves the Beatles too!

Happy Rudolph Day everyone!

Good Morning MMC!!! It's going to be a decent day here with a high near 44 degree's. Then the rain and snow arrive tomorrow and stick around the rest of the week. I was pretty lazy over the weekend so I've got a lot to do today. So I'm off to get started. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Normally, my trips are round trips, unless otherwise specified! You are so FUNNY, Made. I am still laughing as I type!

Thanks, Meceka. I am not pain free, but hopefully I will find something out on Friday, the first of three appointments this month!

I can just see your getting Palmerized as you clean. Take videos!!!

Other than that, today I get to relax. I want to finish the book I am currently reading and work more on the afghan.

Have a MERRY day and be safe!!!
