Christmas is coming

My parents are coming for Christmas this year. so as Scruge would say "i'm going to be rather merry"

just trying to get all festive. we haven't had a tree for the last two years. with the crazy twins I thought it best. unfortunately their gone now, so here we go

I went to storage to get the decorations and tree, thank goodness for my clear tubs they were easy to find





our stockings are hung with care


my cousin Gina bought me this lovely tree bird to add to my Christmas collection





well its a start, i'll add on as I go along

Happy Birthday T

Can you imagine, my baby is 24, she was born 6 pounds 14 ounces and at 330am on November 25th






thats her 3rd birthday. we used to have children adult parties back then, they were a big event and lots of fun. T is the one in front with the pink tights. others in the pic for those of you who know them... Tracy, my Mom and Dad, Mike and Janice, Pat and son Tim, Marty and his daughter Nina, Grandma and Grandpa, me, auntie Shiela, Paul and Barb and their daughter Jackie, Lauren, Carla and daughter Melissa and I think its my brother uncle Dave that took this picture

This is the beauty I woke up to this morning
too bad it messes us up so much





I know you people back east are laughing at us, 1 inch of snow and its outta control. gotta say, lots of work for me heh heh, but to tell you the truth working too much as usual

this is what I wore today


i'm trying to incorporate some color into my wardrobe, I don't know...

Well I believe she'll live after all!

It was really touch n go with kitty but I think she'll actually live

my provider sucks and i've been hard pressed to get online all week

at the beginning of the week kitty would not come out from under the bed. I was worried thinking she was wanting to be alone to die. a girl at my work said she thought she was getting better because she realized she could hide from people as she probably had to hide out in the wild

I hoped so and i'm guessing she was right, lots of improvement now

here is a weeks worth of updates on kitty, the last one is the best, getting to know you

this is how I find our girl now, she shows her freedom from the one bedroom by going into the other one and sleeping on the bed

this is what I wore today



the sweater is my newest acquisition from value village, perfect comfort and warmth for work

Birthday dim sum

This time it is Christina's Birthday! yyyyeeeeeaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh






we had the usual yumminess




then we went to a bench on this little dead end street near Starbucks. we had a variety of cheese cakes: rasberry swirl, amaretto, chocolate swirl and my favorite of them all caramel chocolate chip hhhhhmmmmm



and we had sparklers, have to say though not as spectacular in the daylight. we tried to write our names but you couldn't see the trailers















then it was gone




after that we go to this great SHARE thrift store, I always find something and for the best prices






i've been looking for a flowy white or cream shirt and grey dress pants.

silk shirt = 3.75
club monaco grey dress pants = 3.75
does it get any better than that

well, seem to be back online, what a hassle, my provider craps out every 3 months or so

All is well

Found my camera, luckily

here is my new roof, you can only really see the finished product from the back. i've made the front so private you can't even see the house




now some new windows and we'll be rocking

here is an update on Muesli. doing much better but I had to get her hydrated again. she is eating and drinking but still dehydrated. the fear is that she is having kidney failure. we'll wait and see. she has gained 2 ounces and I think even more since her last visit to the vet
