Midweek Ramblings…

Finally. Last October I bought a bike for Alex. On Sunday he finally decided to take it up and down the street. On Monday he rode around the block. Just like everything Alex does – all in his own time. Maybe we will have  family bike ride after all this year!

Thanksgiving has come and gone here in Canada (without a blog post – oops! Enjoy the pics in this post from the weekend) – but I wanted to share a book that would be nice for my American readers – it’s called “Bear Says Thanks” by Karma Wilson. It’s a lovely story in rhyme about saying thanks to your friends – perfect for before Thanksgiving Dinner.

Speaking of books, I’ve finished a few good ones recently: Still Missing by Chevy Stevens (sort of like Room, but through the eyes of the woman), Bared to You by Sylvia Day (50 Shades read alike – not as much character development, but written much better), and Insurgent by Veronica Roth (second in the Divergent trilogy… so hard to  wait until 2013 for book 3!)

Just over 2 months until our trip to Cuba! The count down is on! So excited. Especially since I scored a bathing suit on clearance at Old Navy for $4.

I’m having fun pinning Christmas pics and sites to my Pinterest page. Hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner.  I must admit, if a Christmas tune sneaks into my random playlist on iTunes that I’m no longer skipping the song. I’m singing along 🙂

The Handmade Culture craft show I organized turned out really well. The number of people through was down from last year, but I think everyone sold one or two items which is good. I’m now trying to get rid of the stash on Etsy.

I’m the worst at Thank You notes… It’s something I’m working on.  So S, you will be getting come goodies in the mail soon!

  1. Great to hear that things are going well. Good for Alex to be riding his bike now! You have been busy with all that reading and organizing the craft show. No wonder you are really looking forward to your trip to Cuba! That will be awesome.

  2. I loved this set of ramblings. I could comment on each item… (especially waiting until 2013 for book three in the Divergent Series, Christmas approaching, and no time…) BUT I’m most excited about Alex and his bike! Way to go buddy!!!

  3. These are beautiful photos!! I too am eagerly awaiting the 3rd book in the Divergent series…although I’m still waiting for second one to come in the library for me. Good for Alex on getting on his bike!! A trip to Cuba in the near future sounds amazing! *Jealous!*
