Shall I just pull out my bag phone?
Winter. is. upon. us.
|I feel like I took this photo fourteen days ago, and it was only this morning. Do you ever have a day when you look at the clock and it's 9:15, but feels like you have lived a full day already? Puuuleeeeease!|
2.What do we do about that?
I jest that it's time to start Christmas baking and realize that November is hot on my heels and it truly is almost time to start the masses of sugar infused, blobs of cookie dough browning up on pans. How am I going to keep up with my Mrs. Claus persona if Gingerbread men aren't practically walking around my house on November 1st? Mercy!
3.Do you long love your land? I sent ATB financial a note today, seeing why in the heck their YouTube video showcasing and promoting Alberta's agriculture (and their bank of course) is not public? Ahem? Isn't the point to get it out there and advertise.
I'm tryin' to get it for y'all to see. I am. Really.
Fact is, I started this post early in the bacon and egg hours and sometime mid morning, after I wrote my note to the banker folks, I got a standard message back saying I needed to take this matter to my local branch. I'm guessing no one read my note.
So, here is the unlisted video. You must watch it right now! I'm sure no one will sue over sharing an unlisted video. This is Canada, after all, we'll just apologize each other to death.
The video makes me feel a tad prideful and sort of weepy hearted.
Yes, I long love this land.
4.Big Girl has a pink rosined up rope. She get's Little Girl atop her rocking horse, ropes the horse and hauls her around the living room. In the sweetest of voices she tells her, "Okay, it's gonna' bump at first, but you hang on! You can do it!"
For the most part I think this is okay, until I peer in from the kitchen and see that Myla Maloo thinks she is some sort of trick rider and is performing wild stunts while Big Girl hauls her around. I'm not sure whether to buy her a helmet or just a fancy sequinned outfit.
Someone send help. The Wild Sisters are gonna' fly.
5. Wal-Mart is overdue. I think it would be in their best interest to start a delivery service-that extends sixty odd miles. Don't you? Shall we petition?
6. My tiredness is overwhelmin' me. Each night I want to post something to you all, and the day ends, floors are haphazardly swept and I can't see the 'puter for lack of being able to hold my eyelids open. My brain is getting mushier as the days go on. It makes me wish that someone would throw sixteen or so soothers in my bed and let me sleep. For a week.
I never used to drink coffee until the second daughter was born. It started out just small doses in a tiny Peter Rabbit mug, now I just get a small vase out of the cupboard.
7.Thanks to this talented Auntie for the sweetie pie, old school matching aprons. They are worn nearly on a daily basis and are holding up spectacularly. Tay likes to remind me to, "Put it over YOUR BELLY and I will tie it up for you, if you can't reach. "
8.Go visit Cow Camp Supply for the most affordable wild rags for the winter season. Support a mom!
9. Take note, painstakingly those lil' doo dads below my posts were put in for you non bloggers, or bloggers, or secret wanna be bloggers-whatever. They are so you can easily share things on FB, pin things, blah, blah, blah. The whole social media shebang. You should be able to click on whatever button suits your fancy. For you, AP, as per your request, directly to your right, you can just enter your e-mail address in that wee box in the corner and get my newest posts to your inbox. Keep in mind I'm technologically illiterate, so this is a big whoop, sorta' deal.
10. Good night and peace to you, my sweetest readers. You give me comfort and courage. I don't tell you enough, I love you all. If you lived nearby, I would fry you doughnuts and we could join hands in this giant, sisterhood community gig. Mostly, you don't live nearby, so look out at that moon tonight, know a zillion other sister's are lookin' up at it, and remember to be kind, because we are all in this together.
