A Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving has come and gone and with it brought time with family and friends.
My good friend Katherine is back from Holland where she has been living the past few months, so it was great to spend time with her and catch up with what we've both been up to!
Alec and Rachel came home from their busy college lives in Kingston just in time for a huge Turkey dinner at Mum and Dad's house on Saturday. Ollie and Primer got to meet for the first time and spent the weekend running around with each other.

In the afternoon we all went up the Mill of Kintail for a hike and to look at all the Fall colours. It was beautiful and the dogs certainly loved playing in the creek and in all the leaves.

Sunday was Thanksgiving dinner Number 2 at Dan's Mum and Dad's where we had Quail and Cornish Hens instead of Turkey. They were delicious!

So a great long weekend was had by all and to top it all off there was a surprise dinner out that Dan planned for me. A great dinner at Kelsey's restaurant with our fab friends, Jenna and Steve.

The Very First Blog!

Hello everyone!

I have been prompted by a few people to start a blog of my own, and so, without further ado, here it is! And what better a time to start then the beginning of a new month? It is the 1st day of October at 2:30am and I am sitting at work in the lab.

I am sure most of you will come to notice many blog updates may come at these strange hours of the morning because of my night shift schedule :)

So here is what is going on in October with Dan and I. Primer (our 5 month old puppy) has just been neutered and a great source of entertainment now that he has a satellite dish of cone strapped around his neck! He is however getting Cabin Fever due to his lack of activiy (vet's orders!)

Dan and I are still waiting on the go ahead to get started on the house renovations, which I'm so excited to get started and even more excited to get finished! For those who haven't heard, we're adding an extention to the house in the basement, main floor, and upper floor (can't wait for the master bedroom and ensuite to be completed!!!)

So now I just need to remember to keep this thing updated!
