Last night I cooked an American Thanksgiving dinner for my man, my parents and my brother and sister. I hadn’t cooked at Turkey in forever and they all said it turned out amazing! I’ll post my yummy recipes on Monday and you should definitely try them out. Today is going to be another crazy busy day and then it is Jason’s last weekend in Canada before he goes back to FMB. I’m going to miss him so much I can’t even stand it, but c’est la vie. He’ll be back in April. Today’s Show & Tell is short and sweet cause I’ve got to get my butt to the office!
Oh Nickelback – not many people admit to liking them – I’m not afraid to say that I’ve got a few songs on my iPod by them – you might have heard there was a petition going around protesting them playing at the Football game yesterday – here’s a great take on it by Alan Cross
Today is Thanksgiving in the US and I’m making a nice dinner for my American man. Mom, Dad, Kristin and Kyle are all coming over to my tiny apartment for Turkey and all the trimmings. I’ll post recipes and photos of my spread and I think it’s important (and maybe a little scary) to note that I have not cooked a Thanksgiving turkey in at least 10 years!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and family and I’ll be having dinner on the beach next year.
I lost a bunch of posts from the very beginning of my blog, I think they were even imported from my first blogger site. When I made the switch from kaponetwo some of the posts just disappeared and I couldn’t figure out what to do. It’s probably been too long to figure out but maybe one day I will. My blog feels really bare lately and its frustrating. I’ve got lots to do and say but not enough time to write it all down. I guess that’s a good thing though. I’m too busy to sit down and write. There’s always so much going on. I made the best butternut squash soup ever last night for dinner. Jason loved it and he said some pretty ridiculous things that I’m not going to post. haha.
Jason found me a heart shaped rock
We’re going back to Florida soon and I cannot wait to go on a road trip. I’m only going for a week this time and Jason for the winter so that kinda sucks that I have to fly home without him. I need to move and get a bigger place soon. I’m looking in the Beach/Leslieville area so if you hear of anything let me know!
Life has been busy and really great lately. Hope it’s been the same for you.
Yesterday I stayed in bed most of the day watching TV. I’m still sore from my accident and it was so nice to relax with Harley and do nothing. I caught up on Season 2 of The Vampire Diaries and then watched the first four episodes of Once Upon A Time.
I had been saving the pilot episode to watch for a while and it is such a great show that I had to watch the next three episodes! Once Upon A Time is about what happens to all our favourite FairyTale characters when Snow White’s Evil Queen releases a powerful curse the day she and Prince Charming’s child is born and they end up trapped in our world, with no recollection of who they are in a town called Storybrook, Maine. These are not the Disney variety of fairytales and shows has a darker, dramatic side to it. The show was created by two of the writers from Lost and I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds. This could be my new favourite series!
Here’s the synopsis from CTV where you can watch full episodes
And they all lived happily ever after – or so everyone was led to believe. Emma Swan knows how to take care of herself. She’s a 28-year-old bail bonds collector who’s been on her own ever since she was abandoned as a baby. But when the son she gave up years ago finds her, everything starts to change. Henry is now 10 years old and in desperate need of Emma’s help.
He believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming’s missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen’s curse, which trapped the fairytale world forever, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. Of course Emma doesn’t believe a word, but when she brings Henry back to Storybrooke, she finds herself drawn to this unusual boy and his strange New England town. Concerned for Henry, she decides to stay for a while, but she soon suspects that Storybrooke is more than it seems.
It’s a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close… where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don’t remember who they once were.
The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.
You should check this show out and let me know what you think!
Another crazy busy week for me. I got the most amazing package from our friend Vivi last night full of Fairlie Dolls and yummy treats. I’ll post what she made us over the weekend and prepare to be amazed. I’m really enjoying work and have been doing so much planning and organizing it’s ridiculous 🙂 Two more weeks until Jason and I go to Florida – I’ll be back in a week though and he’s got to stay for the winter to work 🙁 Things are slow on the blog front but here’s a great Show & Tell for this week.
The National Post ran a story this week regarding a report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives says Rich Canadians Create more greenhouse-gas emissions on a per-person basis and that they need to do more to fight global warming – what do you think?
I have been following the heartbreaking “Honour Killing” trial of the Shafia family who murdered four of their female family members for being too Canadian. Christie Blachford’s “These young women are worth fighting for” should be read by all of us
McSweeney’s I’m Comic Sans has been making the rounds this week and it’s pretty funny.
