pretty quiet day - we popped out to Douglas area this a.m. to show a house. Really cute little place - I like funky old (log) houses!
We are getting used to the pettet stove - it warms up the kitchen (and bedroom over the kitchen) almost too much, so today we put a fan in the kitchen to help blow the air through the rest of the house - seems to be working quite well! We also installed a ceiling fan in the upstairs hallway to help circulate the air. (haha - that's the "royal we" folks - "we" translates to Rick)
We had a very nice dinner at Gow's in Ottawa last nite with Jamie and Julie. Not fancy, but good prices and good food. We sent them home with a dozen eggrolls and we brought home a dozen for us. They're VERY good eggrolls.
When we were in Ottawa I noticed ANOTHER brand new storage building near the Kanata Canadian Tire. At least 3 stories high and bigger than the Canadian Tire building! That must be one of the biggest growth industries around these days - I can only assume people keep buying new "stuff", don't want to get rid of their old "stuff" when they buy more, and so they have store it. There's a bunch of those storage units out here - but this one in Ottawa looked like it was a bit more upscale - likely heated - that would be for your really GOOD "stuff" I guess....
This afternoon we put up some Halloween decorations - we don't do nearly as much as when the boys were small, but we do try to put up a few things - the little kids really like my big inflatable pumpkin! Our house sits kind of off the road and a small pumkin just doesn't show up - so I got this one a few years ago and now I know the kids watch for it.
We also got lots of treats - chips and mini chocolate bars etc. Tomorrow night I plan to watch my favorite Halloween movie "Hocus Pocus" and hand out treats.
pictures today - our halloween house and Buddy (dark grey) and Nibbles having a catnap on the back of the couch. Nibbles is Buddy's mom and these are the only ones who would sleep so close to one another - the others are all very concious of their own and each others personal space.
