Should be in bed...

Friday, October 7, 2011


I have a cold and I should be in bed, but instead I got up at 6:30, made a pot of coffee and checked on the Provincial Election results... you might not know this about me, but I am a junkie for politics and news. While my party of choice, the NDP did not win, they did gain 7 seats in the House of Parliament, and we avoided a Conservative government, so I'm pretty satisfied... despite my stuffed up nose.

Dan and I have finished our week of looking after my "nephews" (not technically nephews, as they are my cousins kids, but her and I are kind of like sisters so it's close enough...). The kids were pretty sweet and cooperative and gave me lots of giggles, like when I asked the oldest boy what he wanted to be when he grew up, and he responded, "A Pumpkin," and watching Dan painstakingly try to explain the plot of Star Wars to a 3 year old was priceless. So many, "But why... But Why Uncle Dan?"'s.


It was a busy week, but I was happy to help and get to spend more time with the boys... And I think I have decided that while a house in the country may be pretty and quiet, I am like the convenience of "in town" living. When I say "in town" (which is a term only country people use), I mean Orillia, a town of 30 000 people, most of them over the age of 75.


My wedding photographer is sending me our wedding photos this week. I am so excited to get them! She has been tempting me with photos on her facebook page. I love this shot of the bouquet and Dan's boutonniere. Dan's mom did such an amazing job, with so little help from me... I sent her a few pictures, and basically gave her the instructions that I did not want "matchy matchy," nothing too stuffy, loose and rustic. She did the bouquets absolutely perfectly, mums and sweet peas in burgundy, purple and a little pink...
