Just got back from shopping, needed some Decaffeinated Black Tea. Also picked up some shaved roasted chicken from the deli (I love that for a sandwich). Had to go to Menards to find out why someone else's name was printed on our recipe. It was our card number. They said it must have been a special order and I said no that it was just items off of the sales floor. They went in the office and looked at the video and said that the man ahead of my DH was doing a special order but had to go back in the store for something and the checker must not have cleared the register. Thank goodness the only items on the receipt were what DH was buying. I am still going to check the bill when it comes and make sure that is all that is on there. I worked in retail for many years so I know to always check my sales receipt. We have one of our grocery stores here that seems to have a lot of items ring up wrong.

Our power was off all night and I was up with Violet who hates storms. I missed any news but am putting it on now. Thanks Mad Cook.

No one is claiming respsonsibility yet for what is going on in Ottawa and Quebec, but the Parliament buildings, schools and the US Embassy are on lockdown, and security measures are in place in legislative buildings across the country as well as the Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C.

On a more personal front, we had a horrific storm overnight with power going out for 8 hours here. This never happens because the power in our complex is all underground but several transformers blew. Violet was shaking so bad due to the UPS's beeping and the sounds of the transformers that I was really concerned about her. I had her thunder shirt on but it didn't seem to help. She is sleeping peacefully at my feet now poor thing.

I was supposed to pick up one of the kids as she is sick and home, while the Mom and boy went to a Wednesday program near us. Now the boy is sick too and Mom is keeping them both home. So, my usual Wednesday time with them is cancelled . I have to be careful because my immune system is low and I can't afford to catch a virus.

So I guess I will be curled up watching the news unfold.

Sorry to you guys up in Canada for the Parliament shooting. It seems this entire world is going wacky all over. Hope things are resolved soon. AND that none of our DC people were in Ottawa today. CWS, you OK? And taxy, know you don't have a regularly working computer right now, but I hope you're fine too. Miss you hanging around here...

I'll send it off to one of the charities that accept hair. I'm guessing mine will be sold off since there is probably more than 5% grey. I had found a Canadian site that said they made wigs for older women and would happily take grey hair. Unfortunately, they never answered back if they could accept hair "imported" from the U.S. I'll guess their lack of reply was a "no".

When I got up this morning, I remembered why I don't like my hair this short. It looks like heck after being slept on. Well, at least going this short got me an entire foot of hair to send. And I should be friendly towards my hair come Valentine's Day. Or Easter. But not this winter - my neck is freezing!

You need to lay in a supply of infinity scarves!

Don't worry, I already wrapped a scarf around my neck hours ago! I'm cozy now.

That's beautiful, GG! Did you make it? I am working on one for my best friend but it is two different coloured (purple and teal) lacy infinity scarfs put together.
