not cool

Before I sign off for the weekend I just had to get this off my chest.

We have a beautiful perrenial garden in our front yard (thanks to the former home owners) and for the second year in a row someone has come and chopped flowers from our peony plant. Who does that?

Dear peony stealer, I hope the ants that come along with the flowers infest your home. Got get your own peonies!

Happy weekend!

wow we really are canadian

Some of you may have heard that the Toronto area is expecting a severe winter storm (OMG brace yourself). It's been so hyped by the media you'd think the end of the world was coming, not just 20-30 cm of snow (I think we can handle it).   The fact that this storm is consuming the media drives me crazy, there are so many more important things that could be filling the headlines. We live in Canada and it IS February so isn't a snow storm inevitable?

Anyway, just in case you have to head out on the roads The Canadian Automobile Association is telling people to be prepared with the following:

  • A fully charged cellphone.
  • Winter survival kit.
  • Extra clothing, blankets.
  • Non-perishable food.
  • Candle, in case they become stranded.
Enjoy your snow day.
