NaNoPoblano 2017 – Day 30 (November 30)

The last day of NaNoPoblano, AND Kitten Thursday!!  No, I did not forget – it’s just been a very long work day.  But now, without further ado, Kitten Thursday.

And to the folks who manage NaNoPoblano:  it’s been a hoot!  Looking forward to being a bit more organized next year 🙂

Well, what do you know?  It’s the second-last day of NaNoPoblano.  And I did it, random “themes” and all.  Can’t believe November is almost over…

Today’s CY365 photo challenge theme is “warm”.  Well, that’s not a hard one.  Even though it’s not particularly “cold” outside (given where we live, and compared to where we used to live), we still enjoy our nice cozy fireplaces.  And, apparently, so does Jasper.

The first Christmas trees are at our local grocery store.

Every year I have mixed feelings about getting a real tree.  Of course, Kevin won’t hear of a fake tree, but finding the “right” one, getting it home and setting it up, watering it every day (once or twice), then taking it down (needles all over the floor) – sometimes I wonder if it’s all worth it.  For the real tree smell and all, I guess. At least here we can see the tree.  Back in Saskatchewan, we had to buy frozen trees and never knew for sure what we were getting until it thawed!

Someday, maybe we will stop with the big real tree, but probably not this year.

Today I spent some time in emerg.  Not for me, and everyone is ok, but you know – emerg.  For you Americans out there, that’s the way Canadians say E.R.

Anyway, there are some funny signs in emerg.  This first one asks if they have asked me for a urine sample.   Somehow I don’t think this refers to those of us just hanging out, waiting for the person who actually needed to go to the hospital.  Also, I apologize for the poor quality – it didn’t feel toward to get up and walk across the room to take a picture in an emergency room.

This second sign had me wondering if wearing a mask was a good idea if you were vomiting.  Just saying.

And thus ends my tale of 3 hours in emerg.

And the first of the Christmas decorations goes up.  Every year, I start with our wreaths.  And throughout the week, prepare to see the transformation.  Well, not much of a transformation, but we do make things look a bit festive!

And, finally, our front door!

And today, a lazy Caturday full of reading and hanging with kittens and Kevin in front of the fire.   I can’t believe it’s almost December – guess I better get going on the old decorating soon…

Nachos and beer with friends after work.  That’s all I got for today!

And here we are again, Kitten Thursday at last!  And I have to say, it’s not Thanksgiving here – its Fake Thanksgiving today 🙂 – but I am thankful for a good day at the office today (expectations were low, but they were highly exceeded).  And tomorrow?  Well, it’s Friday, so boo-yah!

And now, without further ado, Kitten Thursday!

Well, another day, another NaNoPoblano post.  I don’t have anything particularly exciting to say to you all today.  It was a work at home day, and I got a lot done, and then I went for a run with friend Darnell (really hit the spot), and tonight it’s off to see friend Judy’s fourth episode on The Great Canadian Baking Show.

But, before you think I am posting a diary entry, the CY365 theme today is “On the Table”, so I thought you might like to see what is on our living room table right now.

Actually, I’m not really sure why you’d want to see all the stuff I have piled up here right now.  Just representations of my chaotic life (or, really, the laziness around putting things away).  But I thought you might like to see Jasper in the background.

Don’t forget, tomorrow will be Kitten Thursday!

Today’s CY365 theme is Auburn, and what better Auburn could there be than a kitty in front of the fire.  And after today’s work day, I need kitties and fire!  Not that it was all bad – there were some good things that happened at work today, but man…some things just don’t ever change.  Good thing I’m doing my best not to care about it any more.

So, without further ado, the therapy of kitten and fire.
