I am now officially on holidays!  This is the first year I have opted for a slightly longer Christmas vacation, and I am pretty excited.  We don’t have much planned other than visiting with friends and family.  I am very much looking forward to two weeks of relaxing, sewing, skiing, and maybe painting the basement (it needs a facelift – the walls are currently a terrible color of puke yellow…).

Sorry for the lack of recent updates – we are in the middle of an unseasonably low cold-snap & I have been trying to avoid going outside whenever possible.  Normally the average for this time of year is about -5C.  At that temperature I can still be outside with the dogs – take them running or snowshoeing.  However, with our recent temperatures in the -20’s, they want to be outside even less than I do.

These photos were taken last week.  We unfortunately have a lot more snow now.  The dogs are loving it 🙂
There’s nothing like a long down coat to beat the cold.  I picked up this beauty last year during a clearance sale.  It’s now my go-to wear-to-work coat – it keeps me nice and warm during my daily commute!

Happy belated Thanksgiving to my American readers 🙂

Canadian retailers have started jumping on the ‘Black Friday’ bandwagon (a newer occurrence) and I managed to pick up a iRobot Roomba this weekend for 40% off.  I am pretty excited!  With two large dogs (both heavy shedders despite regular brushings), I have high expectations for the Roomba.  Don’t get me wrong, I expect to pull out my vacuum weekly (or bi-weekly – fingers crossed!) to catch areas this it missed (and stairs etc that it doesn’t clean), but if it picks up the majority of the dog fur, I will be more than happy!
