Coming up!

I have a very, very special post coming up next week. For those of you who love doggies, don’t miss it. I promise you’ll like it.

Yeap. It’s a good one. 😀

A little break

I’ve been debating this for a while. I’ve thought of taking some time away from the blog during the holidays but then felt badly and changed my mind. Finally, today I finally decided to go and do it. Not easy to leave a blog even if it’s only for a couple of weeks because I like mucking about on it and chatting with people online (the people I’ve met are really, really nice).

Uncomfortable as it may be, this is something that might help me write more and certainly replenish my blogging batteries. Besides, it’s always good to try new things and experiment. So I’m taking the risk and doing it.

Wish me luck! (I hope I don’t cave and run back here crying like a four year old) And I’ll see you back on January 6th!

A tiny announcement

A teeny, tiny announcement: I won’t be around much this Tuesday night or Wednesday. 😦

My Day Job has come up with work-like retreat for us hard working folk where they can tell us how to do our job not just all day but overnight as well. When no one volunteered to go, they demanded someone and finally threatened that they’d choose. Thinking it couldn’t be that bad, I volunteered to go. After work today, I’ll rush home, pack, reassure my pooches that I’m coming back and go to the ‘retreat’ where I’ll stay until Wednesday.

In my innocence, I thought they’d put us up in a hotel.

Then I saw the website. This is no hotel.

I started hoping that at least they’d have Wi-Fi.

Then I saw the picture of the rooms and I settled for them having a TV or a phone.

Nope to all of the above. No Wi-Fi, no TV’s, no Phones and certainly no room service.

What they do have are plastic covers over the mattresses. And moth balls. And there are plenty of trees in this remote location but no reception for cell phones.

I promise more details on my return. I’ll be watching the locals and taking notes. No strange behaviour will go undocumented.

Leaving on a more positive note, I found this beautiful little rose in a plant in our yard and took a picture. You’ll have to take my word for it that it was beautiful because the photograph doesn’t do it justice (I took it). I sat there freezing for over half an hour with dogs licking my face waiting for the flower to stop moving…and this is what I got as a result.

All blurry. Honestly. How do Gene’O or That Montreal Girl do it?
