Well recently the random thought posts by Amber, Jenessa and Shareen have been popular so I have taken to doing one of my own.
-I am really enjoying my time off. I know that some people that have an excess of time off get bored very quickly, I am NOT however one of those people. Things I am enjoying about having time off (in no particular order):
1.Reading the entire (or maybe almost the entire) paper in the morning (it is too bad we get the Globe and Mail and not the Lethbridge Herald because reading the Globe is like reading a book in the morning) :), oh and drinking coffee with the paper
2. Baking - yesterday I made creme brule which Marc tastefully toasted with his blowtorch, I made pumpkin pie on Friday and I am going to make cinnamon buns tomorrow mmmmmmm
3. Taking Niko for long walks, enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having of late here in the Wack
4. Spending more time with Marc
-Things I am not enjoying about my time off - the fact that I enjoying reading, baking, walking and spending time with Marc a little too much and all the other things I SHOULD be doing fall to the wayside
-I have noticed that Marc and I are getting old, we have started to lament the smut that is on TV today, the violence in the world and discussing what kind of world our children will live in. We have especially been complaining though about the behaviour of teenagers, especially their driving! We talk about how the youth of today drive so fast and recklessy without due care and attention. Crazy kiddies! We were NEVER EVER like this! (Do not read the post two below if you want to continue to believe this)
-Niko is now officially a dog, or maybe a teenage dog but no longer a puppy. He lays down now! When Niko was a puppy we never saw him lay down or sleep upstairs, he would always go downstairs to sleep and as soon as he heard us he would be awake and ready to play. This morning I took his puppy gate down from the stairs at 9:30am and at noon he sauntered upstairs and then proceeded to lay on our bed for two hours. After I took him for a walk he slept on the landing for another hour. Oh the life of a dog! (I do sort of have the life of a dog right now actually.)
-Recently Found in the Superstore Bargain Bin: A Mighty Wind. New on DVD! Price tag: $4.99.
-Lastly, I have recently discovered that the Matt Good band is really good. hee hee I hadn't heard them in a while (and did not like them too much before) and Marc recently put "Beautiful Midnight" on and I was like Wow these guys are great!
My random thoughts for today and after reading my last line maybe I'm not getting too old, I still totally use like to like describe things.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
