Here are just a few random things that I felt like sharing with you..b/c, well, I can :)
Our school dressed up in green and some of them had fun accessories. I just bought a school tshirt, which is green, and one of the teachers gave me stickers, which I used as earrings. Very cool. We didn't do a ton of stuff today, either, as we were all exhausted. I ended up bringing (as in buying) SPD mini cupcakes, of which the kids devoured.
After school, I was hoping to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the Shamrock Shake with our dinner from McD's. I was very disappointed to find out that they were out. I almost went back, this evening, but I don't need it, but man, was I ever bummed.
I went to Starbucks twice this week..one time was with our new neighbour. I went yesterday, and I got a peppermint frap (their version of the Shamrock Shake), which was good. I also go their SunDried Ethioptian Coffee, which is very good.
I watched Driving Miss Daisy for the first time ever this e…
After nearly 2 years in The Philippines, my sister arrived home last (Monday) night. We had big plans of all going up to my brother and SIL's house after picking up said sister for a quick bite to eat dinner. Well, life doesn't always turn out the way we hoped, planned and wanted. Her plane got delayed (get this), 3 times! Yo...I didn't know it was even POSSIBLE for planes to get delayed FROM Canada (she was coming from YVR) that many times! Poor thing had been there for 7 hours, and had been travelling for 48 (or something). Well, Anker came with us to see her come in, and then we dropped Anker off (he nearly came with us, but he was too tired), and I drove up the hill to A and K's. Yes, we had a huge supper at 9 pm. It was actually nice. Mom, Dad and V left around 9:30, and I stayed until 1030. Yes, I was out/ up late on a school night. Yes, I paid for it today. Oh well. I am glad that I got to hang out with her for a bit. We are having a bit of a welcome home/bday p…
Happy Saturday!! I haven't been in the blogging groove lately. But I am buckling down and trying to hammer out a few posts tonight.
Here are some of my favourite from the last week or two:
1) Winter Olympics:
I am not as into them as I usually am this time. I think part of it is that I have SO MANY other movies and shows to watch and catch up on, that I am watching those right now. That being said, I did watch some today. I am happy to report that Canada got its first 2 medals today!!! Go, Canada, Go!
2) Sweet Gifts
I was given two gifts in the last week or so at school. A student gave me this scarf, and a teacher gave me this S'Well Bottle.
3) 3 Day Wknd!
It is Family Day Long Wknd this weekend, and we are all excited about it.
