Its Been a While...

Hello again!
Its been a long time since my last post... Where to start?
How about where I have been. In September I went to Ontario to visit my family. It was lovely. Still warm enough to swim in the lake, I got in there as often as possible for the 2 weeks I was there.

I love spending time with family and friends. Its always super busy when I visit because I have to see everyone in the first few days I am there, not really a vacation.

October was the usual, work and Halloween! always fun. My room mate set up a halloween tree, it was very cute and festive. I didn't do much crafty stuff, I did dress up as a sailor for a party. No home made costume this year.

November was a lot of fun. Around the 15th B and I decorated the tree, I know a bit early but I work in a craft store and I was already under 2 months of Christmas cheer. I am pretty proud of my matching wreath I whipped up a few days later.

I also attended the Festival of Trees, trees are decorated and donated by businesses then auctioned. The money went to the local Hospital. The trees were amazing. They had lots of fun stuff for kids to do too
Our roller derby team volunteered to sell raffle tickets at the "Cirque du Noel" dinner. It had a fun circus theme with lots of fun acts like contortionists, a girl on stilts, a girl eating fire, a giant unicycle, some guys doing tricks and juggling, and other fun weird stuff. We blended right in, he he.

Now to December. Oh, I love Christmas time. With no shortage of snow, Its quite festive everywhere I look. I have been wrapping presents for over a month now, I just cant wait to watch my nieces and nephew tear the paper and ribbon off. I have fun baking and decorating, but its really about family and mostly about the kids. I am happy to get some thoughtful cards and a new pair of pyjamas.


  1. Love to see the Lake summer is just around the corner Yay!!

  2. I am looking forward to it too. I have had enough snow already.
