I'm drinking coffee, printing tax returns for a client, and drying laundry. Then I have to get ready to visit my mummy-in-law in Cornwall, ON (~100 km drive). We are celebrating her 75th birthday. Stirling went by train yesterday. I don't want to leave Shreddy alone for more than about 24 hours at the moment. He's off the thyroid cat food in anticipation of the radioactive iodine treatment, so he is hungry most of the time. He needs the food so he won't lose too much more weight with that hyperactive thyroid.

I'm mucking out the sunroom. Gad, there are so many papers and such!

I WAS planning to pick more apples, but DH loaned out our apple picker pole without consulting me

I slept in so the plans I made are moot, alternate plan as soon as I wake up.

I've been busy. After work I headed to Verizon to exchange my phone for a new one. The software stopped working in the old one (two weeks old) for some of its functions. And Verizon being up by the mall I had to wonder if the Christmas sales had started already. Traffic today is absolutely horrible. Everybody is out. Some guy came up to me and started talking to me to help pass the time waiting my turn at Verizon anyway.
Then I threaded my way northeast and hit Giant Eagle for a few things that I need for tomorrow's meals. I also picked up some items for Snip's curry mussels, which I plan on making tonight. Man I wish this rain would stop. Sure makes for a miserable day.

I want to go take a walk down by the river. Wish it WOULD rain, that would make it even more fun.

Got the mail today, and found DH now has a Redbook magazine with a subscription. Huh? DH said he did not subscribe. Of course, there's no place to call and cancel, so I went online and canceled. No indication as to how we got it. DH's subscription was good till 2015.

I'm puzzled. Years ago, I was sent mags from Gun and Rifle, and Soldier of Fortune mags, on two separate occasions. I figured it was because someone found my name and address from a catalog or mag, and filled in the subscription card and sent it in as a prank. Back then, I was able to call and cancel.

I'm scrupulous about shredding anything with any identifying information, including name and address. So how the heck did this happen?

I'm about to fill up cat food bowls and head to Ontario. It has just started raining here and it's raining harder in Ontario. Oh well, I guess the drive will take a little longer today.

No rain here. Thank God! Yesterday was a real experience. From just after noon until about 6 p.m. we received slightly over 6 1/2 inches of rain. You'd never know it to see the sun shining today. Yeah!

Believe it or not, I'm about to roll out the wrapping paper and wrap Christmas gifts. I'm nearly done with the annual task of collecting/making/buying gifts and have the desire today to get those ready to be shipped wrapped and boxed.

For some reason I have the feeling this fall is going to be ultra busy and I'd better strike while the iron is hot.

Be safe taxy, and have a nice visit! Happy Birthday to your MIL. 75 is a good one to celebrate. Heck, IMO every one after 50 is good!

Hope Shreddy doesn't have separation anxiety while you guys are gone...
