Send advil please

So - I've signed up my daughter for oboe lessons. There's a joke in there, surely.

As all Canadians know - Tim Hortons is running the annual "Roll up the rim" contest. Is it just me or have they loaded up those cups with coffee and muffin winners? I've won 3 coffees already and I hadn't won anything in the previous 5 years. Smart business really - I've NEVER seen such busy line ups at the drive thru. Anyone see the Rick Mercer episode where he asked George Bush how he felt about Prime Minister Tim Horton? Hilarious. From a special show called "Talking To Americans". I've never laughed so hard. No offence to my US friends.... :-) Just good clean fun. He actually got Mike Huckabee to congratulate Canada on our new "National Igloo"

Progress continues on the Landmark design - one of these days I might actually take a decent picture of it. I've also started back up on DH's sweater. I've finished the back so now it just needs another sleeve and the front. I'm working on it in secret since it annoys him to no end that I continue to work on everything else but his sweater...... Passive aggressive is my middle name.


  1. I have to say it.... at least the lessons will make it better. As a mom of two trombones and a french horn I can say that with vehemence! I can also say I know what a dying cow must sound like. I really miss Tim Horton's coffee, much better than Starbucks. Landmark is really coming along.

  2. LOL - it'll be music before you know it... Love the stitching progress!

  3. What a wonderful site, my English is not too good, I myself am from the Netherlands. Yet I like to look around more often.
