Sometimes it just comes to me.

I'm going to sit over here in the corner and finish my book...Maroon 5 on the earbuds.

In a few hours I will be enjoying my last cup of room service coffee snd breakfast. We dock at Vancouver's harbour in 7 hours and then wait our turn to get off. it has been a wonderful week and enjoying that morning cup on the balcony has been a highlight.

Sooo...after I left here yesterday I went off to work to interview for my position. (To make my job a permanent one) THEN I went in to do my shift at work and what do you suppose I did within about an hour of arriving? You guessed it...smashed the owie part of my foot on the corner of the freezer. Freak. OW!

So, I don't have to leave here for a few more hours and I'm going to have a bit of peace. I put cinnamon buns in this morning and I also put on a pot of that lovely coffee .40 left. Anyone want to join me? I'm going to read for a while here. Just finished Personal by Lee Child and Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs. That made me want to reread Night Broken so that's what I'm into right now. Be loud when you come in...I'm at a jumpy part!

I didn't hurt my foot Vit, Alix did! I'm sure she will share the Bailey's.

By all means bring in the wine, wood and song.
oops, sorry about YOUR hurt foot, alix. my mistake, pf, i get obtuse like that sometimes, 'specially in the late night hours. i'm glad you brought up the elves. they've been on my mind. what is the likelihood that they will return home voluntarily, do you suppose? i wonder if there is something we can do to help bring them back. how about if we set out some little trinkets and elfie things out in the yard, or maybe place a dish of the elve's favorite snacks on an open window sill? the place just isn't the same without the elves, their antics and playful ways, or their obsessvie penchant for cleaning and orderliness. if they don't come home soon though, we'll be forced to think about advertising for cleaning help again.

Hi girls. I heard all the chatter and just had to come by. I brought a plant of shamrocks. If we put them outside, maybe the house elves will come back.

Vit I am sorry about the kitties. Just send them back to me. Teddy loves to play with them. Oddly enough his favorite food is Meow Mix. Strange dog.

It is so cozy warm here. Our temps went down to 47F last night. My apartment was 61F. when I got up this morning. I didn't stay up too long. I got my cup of coffee and jumped back into a warm bed real quick. For someone who is on blood thinners, that is just too cold. They still haven't turned the HVAC system over to heat. I have the thermostat on heat with the fan on high. I will know instantly when the heat goes on. I hope it is today.

I think I will just sit here and hug all the heat. Right now a cup of cocoa will go good with those brownies. But only a small piece. Sugar, you know. BTW, there is a lemon custard pie out in the kitchen. Enjoy!

We have a nice pile of firewood in the way-back of our yard. If anyone is interested, I'll bring a bundle or two next time I come out. But we ALL have to promise that if we start a fire in the hearth we have to remember to break it up completely before we leave. Kinda like the last one out needs to shut the lights.
fall is practically here. we're already feeling signs of seasonal change in the brisk morning air, and in the cool evenings of late. cg, you, your wine and firewood are all always welcome at the klatch, as you well know.

Hey guys! Did you see all the leaves in the yard? I walked around aimlessly for a bit shooshing them with my feet. FUN! Kind of weird that its so warm out now when it was so cold this morning.

Still doing coffee though. Hey PF, I put your DVD player up in the cabinet as it looked like it was going to get knocked off that end table.

Butter toffee coffee this morning. Mmmmm! Smells so good. And off to read my daughter's blog. Love that kid.
