NaNoPoblano – Day 30 (November 30): Last day of the challenges!

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/) !  And day 30 of 30 Days of Thankfulness (https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/30-days-of-thankfulness/).

It’s the final day of NaNoPoblano and 30 Days of Thanksgiving.  Thanks for the challenges!!  I always enjoy challenges that give me the excuse to blog more, and there were great ones.  Don’t know what’s coming in December – there was one last year

So, to end my NaNoPoblano and Thanksgiving posts, I am thankful for new windows for our basement that were installed today.  I showed some inside views earlier today, now here are the outside views, before and after, of those same windows:

And now, a scene from A Christmas Carol – this is kind of how I’m feeling right now.

But, it’s Christmas movie season, and so far it’s been It’s a Wonderful Life, and George C. Scott’s A Christmas Carol.  Tonight, it’s Elf.  What’s next?  I’ll let you know!  Thanks for November 🙂

NaNoPoblano – Day 29 (November 29): FU2016

Go NaNoPoblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/) !  And day 29 of 30 Days of Thankfulness (https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/30-days-of-thankfulness/).

Sorry for the implied expletive, but I’m afraid I don’t feel very thankful today.  I mean, I’m always thankful for Kevin, the kitties, mom and dad, family and friends, an of course my amazing work colleagues.  But today sucked.  And I don’t know how much more I can take.

Whatever happens though, I am throwing 2016 into the garbage and taking 2017 – it’s mine and no one is going to ruin it for me.

2017, you are mine.

I am thankful for Christmas coming, and also want to send best wishes out to Brian, who apparently lost his drone.  Wish he has posted a picture 🙂

It was light outside, but we still needed candles in the dining room!

With permission, my Aunt along with the Christmas-sweatered bottle of chocolate wine my cousin brought up for us!

Finally, a peacock posing as Kevin, my Uncle and Cousin and I went for a walk after brunch (my Aunt went to mom and dad’s place to see their new bathrooms!)

And thus ends our visit with the ‘MurKans!

NaNoPoblano – Day 24 (November 24): Lunch with Dad!

Go NaNoPloblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/) !  And day 24 of 30 Days of Thankfulness (https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/30-days-of-thankfulness/).

Today I went for lunch with my dad.  To the Heron Rock Bistro, which is a couple of blocks away from our house.  We didn’t go far ’cause it was a bit rainy out (and a bit chilly too, although it’s hard to say that as someone from Saskatchewan!)

Anyway, it was a latte and a Heuvos Cubanos hash – I almost forgot to take a picture, but at least this time you are seeing more than the empty plate!

NaNoPoblano – Day 23 (November 23): Thankful for sick days

Go NaNoPloblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/) !  And day 23 of 30 Days of Thankfulness (https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/30-days-of-thankfulness/).

Yeah.  I was home sick today.  I won’t tell you about it – that’s something no one really needs to hear about.  I think I should be good to get back at it tomorrow.

But now, I want to go back to sleep…

NaNoPoblano – Day 21 (November 21): Are you sure it’s November?

Go NaNoPloblano (National Blog Posting Month) (https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/) !  And day 21 of 30 Days of Thankfulness (https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/30-days-of-thankfulness/).

Went for a walk over the lunch hour with a couple of colleagues and it had to be 15 degrees out – that’s 15 Celsius for you ‘MurKans (I am sure Google can convert that for you 🙂 )!

Anyway, it was amazing out there.  Compared to what we saw on TV in Ottawa yesterday…

I think we live in a pretty great place!
