Isn't this the cutest xmas template?

I like it. 

I am still in the midst of getting this house together.  I know... you are tired of hearing this, but that's all I got these days.

Everyday is a surprise.  So many different things to see outside the big windows...

I am still trying to adjust to the new hood.  I lived out in this area in an apartment before we got married and I know the ropes .. like shopping etc.  but because we are situated back in the woods about a mile away makes it so different.  We are close to everything....hospitals..malls etc.  It's like coming home sometimes when I shop in the old malls that I shopped in before we were married.  I forgot how different it is here because the University of Manitoba is just down the road. When you shop in the stores you encounter a whole different mindset than where I lived before.  It is so diverse...and interesting.  It reminds me of when I lived here before when I was 28 years old.  The old Zeller's department store is still there ....only thing that has changed is now... I can order the Seniors Special in the restaurant...without them telling me to take a hike..heh....tomorrow I am getting my "roots" done in the hair stylist shop that has been there forever.  They now do tat's and ear piercing... so I might go for the whole package...because my ear piercing have been giving me problems of late...I don't wear my ear rings enough to make dem holes stay open.  And the tat...hmmm

I love the small town feel of this area.  We actually are on the tip of two areas..the one I just described and another older area called St Norbert.  This area is mainly French Canadian...this is where I go to buy food you can't buy at Safeway...and the former owners were Mennonite.... and I can still get my farmer sausage fix.

Sometimes I walk in the living room and see the woods...and wonder .....how the hell did I get so lucky.....  but I guess we spent a lifetime working for this moment.
