The Tree is Up

I can't quite take pics yet as i need to find another snow blanket for the village (which is partway under the tree) but the tree is up and decorated all pretty, garland is hanging gracefully from the bannister and the fireplace mantle, snowflakes are twinkling in the light, the outdoor lights are well underway (another two or three strings should do the trick) and energy efficient (solar - if all the homeowner horror stories of the power meter dial moving quicker then the human eye can register - this  should help) with a natural timer and the garland is ready for a bit of spice along the kitchen cabinets.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .

Now to decide what deliciousness I need to start filling the freezer with -

Ginger cookies

But first - GO RIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Goings on and happenings

Mercies - this fall totally flew by. Between planning a wedding (who knew that there were so many details to consider), moving into a house (it is still absolutely beautiful and I am quite excited to decorate it for Christmas) and trying to stay on top of things at work (which seems to be a losing battle these days) I haven't had much time for anything else.

The place did welcome it's first house guest. It was officially initiated when my whole family came (including the nephews). And has been proven to comfortably host a 13 adult dinner party.

We have a church, hall, wedding dress, photographer and on the path for invitations. Our wedding guests have a place to sleep and we have fabric for the guys vests. My hair will look delightful in Sask at least and we are slowly crossing things off the list for NS!

I flew down to Philly for a 3 day demo for work that went superbly! It was during my birthday which made for a fun trip but also kind of felt like the birthday fairy passed me by this year. Does that mean I am still 34??

And honestly that sums up all the goings on in my life.

Oh - and the Riders are officially headed to the Grey Cup again. Can't forget that excitement.
