Secure in his manhood.

It was my birthday on Friday and Dave bought me a lovely gift and saw to it that I had a special and memorable day - like the fabulous husband that he is! However, I am writing this post to highlight an unexpected bonus - THE WRAPPING PAPER.

Dave broke into my scrapbooking supplies to wrap my gift.

Exhibit A:

And inside was this...

Romantic right? This book is on my list. Dickens is a little intimidating, so I'm not sure how soon I will read this, but I'll let you know when I get there!

I live in Canada, therefore I eat turkey in October, mmmkay?

Martha Stewart has never failed me before. Her recipes are unfailingly easy and reliable, her crafts are cute, creative and simple, her site navigable, her readers plentiful, and her information punctual....If you are American.


Martha, what you fail to understand is that you have CANADIAN READERS! I PAY MONEY for a subscription to your magazine and I have even given subscriptions out as gifts to other Canadians! I visit your website regularly and I have purchased your cookbooks! To withhold Thanksgiving recipes, decor and craft templates from us until November is UNFAIR. WE REQUIRE ACKNOWLEDGMENT.

This morning I spent two hours on your website searching for craft ideas and recipes. While I was able to find some information, you have the whole Thanksgiving portion to your site that does not open until October 26th. What am I supposed to do, save the info and wait until next year?

It's a good thing I'm creative and can think up my OWN decorations and recipes. I don't NEED you Martha.

There, I said it.

The Dave - Perception of Self Edition

This evening Dave and I had a slight misunderstanding about the time we were supposed to arrive at a friend's house, which snowballed into a bit of an argument, because I was taking too long to get in the car. A classic, you might say. The details of said argument are insignificant - we arrived at our friend's on time, and I had been able to apply lipstick, so all was well.

All that was to set the stage for a most memorable little gem that Dave let slip later on, when expressing that he may have overreacted about our punctuality.

"I'm like God. I'm merciful, but don't fuck with me."

That is what he said.

I can hear you laughing, but be careful, he might smite you. You don't know what he is capable of.

Fall - The 'It's Moving Way too Fast' Edition

Only a week later and look at all the golden leaves! It's beautiful, but it serves as a reminder that winter is just around the corner...

Fall - Late September Edition

The maple tree in our front yard has begun to change colour. I'll post a new pic of the tree once a week to show its progress. It is beautiful here in the fall.
