Well, just like most of my favorite television shows, I decided to take last week off of posting. Unlike the mass media, my inactivity was not due to the American Thanksgiving weekend, but rather the complete lack of anything of note happening! Over the period of two weeks though, I actually did some stuff that was interesting.
On a personal note, I am quite happy that Movember is over since now I am able to shave off my ridiculous looking mustache. Although as my mom would point out, all I need is a sombrero, a poncho and a sash of bullets and I'll be ready for an old school Mexican standoff.
But allow me to back things up a bit. November 26th was Heather's birthday. We had a small gathering at Gillians house and made pizza for dinner. Nancy also brought over the stuff to make Sushi and I made a tray of Eclairs. Fortunately eclairs are very easy to make and really aren't too time consuming.
Recently I have been going to the gym trying to get into better shape. I usually go around 3-4 times a week although some times it is hard since it's so bloody cold outside. Last Wednesday when I came home I looked up and noticed that the Northern lights were out. It was pretty neat! I got a picture of it, but sadly I didn't have any sort of tripod and it was exceedingly cold outside making it hard to sit still and take the picture.
This is one of the houses across the street from me. It's nice to see everyone getting into the holiday spirit! I'm thinking next week I will get started on my Christmas cookie workshop. I discovered that on December 20th it is a day when classes have activities or Christmas parties so I thought it would be fun if we had cookies available that we could take around to all the kids! Since there's around 200 students I think I'm going to have to get started early! I think 2 weeks should do it no problem though since I will have some helpers as well! That fact is probably a good thing since decorating can get tedious and makes me want to shoot myself sometimes..haha
