Not much new...

So this week has gone by really quickly!  I got to do a bit of Christmas shopping on Wednesday...well more like Christmas idea shopping.  I also spend 2 1/2 hrs in the grocery store today...but got a weeks worth of shopping done!  So confusing still but getting better slowly but surely.  They just don't have what we have food no flavored creamers for coffee!  What!  How could they!?!  But so far I am 5 for 5 with feeding the boy.  He seems to like my American food and I like that he likes that is good!  We got our new sofa bed for visitors to come and stay on.  Looks pretty nice...just need the visitors to start if you are reading this that means YOU!  tehe  The house is starting to actually look like a home and for that I am grateful.  We have a bit to go and once we get it to where I love it I will put pics on here for you all to see.  For now...we will leave you hanging.

To be honest I set up house all day...organize...reorganize cause I think I can get a bit more in a different way and then organize some more.  I know you are so shocked by this...(sarcasm included).  I have also been really fascinated with the news on this whole Eurozone crisis.  I don't know if you have this much coverage of it over in the states but it is interesting to listen to.  I'm a nerd I know...but this is history people!  Ok...enough from me...

Oh one last thing.  Here everyone wears poppies for the whole week leading up to Veteran's Day (Armistice Day).  Then at 11 there is 2 mins of silence.  I was in the grocery store and literally it all could have heard a pin drop in a grocery that was as filled as one is before Thanksgiving in the states!  It was really neat.  Thank you to all our Vets...and those serving our country now...both in the good ole U.S.A. and here!  I am a bit proud to say my hubby is serving his country tehe.  Have a great weekend peeps!  I'm out!

  1. We wear the poppies and have the time of silence in Canada, too. It seems very strange this year to have life go on as normal - no silence, no ceremonies, no poppies. There is a huge ceremony at our parliament buildings in Ottawa, too. Weird to not have it on TV all morning. The kids are all home from school as well.

    Glad to hear you're doing well. Looking forward to seeing the pictures - both b/c I want to see your place, but also b/c it will mean you are feeling good about it and relatively settled and calling it "home."

    Much love,
