Just out of mild curiosity...

How long does it take when you're spending time with me before you learn I'm an "early to bed" type? I mean really, calling at 10:45 on a Monday night for an emergency - totally fine. To pick something up tomorrow....not so much. And don't act all shocked and offended when I answer "Yes!" to the "Oh, did I wake you up?" question. Yes you did and until I pull my brain out of whatever I was dreaming about and am coherent I am not resposible for what I say! (I did manange to add "but it's ok, what's wrong" to the "Yes".) Grrrr.

Assorted pics

These are the new earrings I bought when Kt was here. I got them at a Japanese store at Niagara-on-the-Lake. They're oragami that's then shellacked (sp?) to be more durable.

This is my hydrangea bush this week. It went from no flowers to full on gorgeous in just a week or so! To me it's odd to see different colored balls of flowers all on the same bush!

I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad to be done w/ that job. I swear, I was working in a LOONY BIN!!!!!!! Theresa never even said "thanks" or "Good job" or even "Well, bye" when I tt her on the phone. Oh well. I got criticized for not organizing things more while I was there (I think they underestimated how bad it was) but they understood that I couldn't take much away from Teresa, she didn't "share well" with others. :-) I bought bad-for-me pizza, berry pie, and the icecream that IS on my diet for dinner tonite. WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I had people to party with tho. Poor Josh has to wk tomorrow morning, then he has golf in the afternoon so I'll probably head to the hospital to see Teresa. I also have to get my ring inspected and I want to ck out Ulta for hair products (why does my hair have to be SO hard to style???) I think we're hitting a drive-in in Canada this weekend to see the new Transformer movie - yay!!!! Too many movies out I want to see! The new Xmen, Night at the Museum II, Transformer, then HARRY POTTER is in a couple of weeks - YAY!!! I love how they put them out for my bday - just for me I'm sure, haha. Well that's enough rambling, I'm sure you've figured out by now that I'm just a bit HAPPY and WIRED etc. :-)
YAY FOR BRENDA, ERIC & JACKIE next week! I am sooooooo excited to show you around! Must hit the Hershey store, Coke store, falls, stairs, fireworks at night, Niagara on the Lake, outlet mall --- goodness, thank heaven I'm not wking after all that! :-)

Kt's visit - Day 2

We got up - straightened my hair (Ok, Kt straightened my hair while I sat purrrrrring from the stress relief effect of someone playing w/ my hair.) Then we attempted to go to church. However apparently the church we were going to either forgot it was Sunday or cancelled services or...I'm not sure what. We got there 10 mins early, a lady was playing piano. At 10 (when services were to start) another lady came in, got the piano player and they left. us. in the dark sanctuary. So we left and went to the bfast cafe around the corner and had another bfast. Then we walked home and drove to Niagara on the Lake in CA to shop at all the funny little stores. I got some japanese oragami tiny little oragami fish earrings. They're laquered so they last and are so light and pretty! I also found heaven --- I mean another place that makes REAL pb and choc icecream. Previously I had found that heaven only existed at Baskin Robbins. Yay for another place to find it! :-)
We came home and took naps, then went for a nice little 7 mile bike ride which apparently has exhausted Kt. I keep doing that! :-) We may highlight my hair tonite, then tomorrow is my wkout in the morning and we still need to do the Devil's Hole stairs and the maid in the mist.

P.S. PLEASE sign your name to your postings - otherwise how do I know who you are??? :-) TY!

Katie's visit - DAY 1

Kt w/ the Mountie - carved from a single tree trunk (and yes he seems to be missing part of his right foot - that wasn't our fault).

Kt getting wet at the Canadian falls. At least she's getting wet cheerfully!

The glass blower heating a blue vase he was wking on.

Kt at the Hershey store -- "everyone needs a kiss!"

Several "yay's"

1. Chip and Dip moved back to the hill (after they put that awful smelling mulch in the front where they had made a hole they left for several weeks.) I have also learned that the piercing chirp that I hear....is Chip and Dip. Oops. :-) Oh well, not a problem until I have a migraine.

2. 9 days till Kt comes!!!!!!! I am SOOOOOO excited. I can't wait to drag her all over the walks, down to the falls, on the Maid of the Mist boat etc.

3. 29 days till Brenda, Eric and Jackie come! More people to drag all over creation! Tennis shoes are required to visit me! :-)

4. I DON"T HAVE TO WORK TODAY!!!!! I love my new schedule and hope it will make my head behave as it should instead of being such a pain in the .... head.

Off to training, everyone have a good Wednesday and ck back after my visits for pics!
