Procrastination

It is the time of year where you realize that sending things in the mail requires planning in order for them to get to the right place at the right time. Oops. Late gifts and Christmas cards all around!

Snow

Hooray for the snow! And at the same time the rain can get out of here. Leave the fluffy white stuff for us to slide around on! The sludge is the worst.

Shovelling

Dearest driveway enthusiasts. Not only is it a pleasure to walk down your sidewalk, it is an honour. A drunken stupor is never so divine. You take great pride in your walkway and it is those morals I will pass on to my grand babies. Countless times I have stumbled down this street knowing that your driveway is a safe and comfortable place for me to stumble along. Keep up the good work.

Dogs

Cheers to the most beautiful Australian Shepherd that I saw outside of dose the other day. You were just the cutest, fluffiest, best thing that happened to me that day. Stay happy!

Nutcracker

Cheers to the kids who performed alongside the professional ballerinas last weekend. The performance of The Nutcracker was spectacular. Great work all around.

Figure Skating

Round of applause of the figure skaters who performed in their Christmas show last Thursday. Thank you for sharing your talent and smiles with us. And to the kids just learning to skate, keep up the good work!
