After I got going this morning I had to go out to scourge for some kindling. This is my biggest beef year after year with my hubby, "please make sure there is lots of kindling so I have no problem starting the wood stove". This did not happen this year, but I do have to admit last year was the only one I never had to worry about not having any .... one out of how many ain't bad, is it?
Caframo in Wiarton has some amazing technology from fans to their Joi Lights (which I won one 2 years ago at a function in Wiarton). Great gift giving ideas. You may check out more about Caframo by going to their website HERE.
Next thing on my agenda this morning had been to clean out the upstairs wood stove before I started any more dusting or vacuuming, as some realize how much dust a wood stove creates. Despite the dust I love the type of heat it provides for our bodies, gas/propane doesn't even come close to the warmth of it.
This afternoon I had planned to meet up with my sister, Jeanne, and her hubby, Cecil, to have lunch with Mom at Gateway Haven.
I love that I can text and receive photos from the kids on my phone now. I had called Paul to tell him I was lunching with Grandma and to please send us a selfie of himself for her.
Well so much for the Santa hat, as I just looked down at my feet to see Portia had gotten it down from the back of the couch, where I should have known better then to have put it, and has it half eaten.
*Sigh* I LOVE my Aussies, really I do, and I had actually been thinking this only a mere hour ago.
I have a meeting this evening with the Wiarton Chamber. Rob is on his own for Dinner I am thinking, which will be no bother for him whatsoever. Me? I will probably grab quick sandwich before it is time to leave, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
