Day 243

My new chairs have a slouch to them.  So after dinner we can hang comfortably having an after dinner drink.  If I start to get a curved spine, I will blame the chair.

Day 242

So my new table arrived!  It is 8ft long when both leaves are in.  As a result, the table has to have a middle leg.  he he he.  I know.  I am in grade 8.  I had a long day at work and then ice cream with the girls, so when Darren showed me the middle leg (the table's, not his) I couldn't help but giggle.  Giggling at his middle leg probably wouldn't have gone over well.

Day 241

All these fortune cookies work with the 'in bed' saying.  They also are saying 'you are a pig'.  I guess since there are 6 with the meal, they thought the meal would feed 6 people.  oops.

Day 240

If all goes according to plan, I will get to be a dog in my next life.  It does seem pretty sweet.

Day 239

To say it didn't bring the excited that it did when I was 10 is probably an understatement.

Day 237

He seems to like the feel of my new rug against his butt.  Not liking the outlook of this rug.

Day 236

So the white shag may not have been the best choice with Max and Darren, but I love it.  Is it wrong to forbid family members from certain rooms?

Day 232

Nothing says "we don't know the gender" like an assortment of pastels.

My sister in law is pregnant, not me.  This is for people who know me and are just tuning in to this blog.

Day 230

I am a mechanical engineer, and we are supposed to love gears.  Well, maybe not love them, but know enough how to size a gear box.  This gear assembly is attached to an ice cream scoop. I love this gear!

Day 229

When I bought these globes, I didn't realize they were missing something.  My home province!  As I looked at them closer, it became apparent that they are not accurate at all.  Then I wondered if they were of the ancient Earth before the land moved into its current location and islands hadn't broken off yet.  Time before being held hostage by either Air Canada or Marine Atlantic to see family members.

Day 228

And the decorating for the baby shower begins.  Cute garland, eh?

Day 227

He curls around a corner like this when he has gas.  His butt is in one room, while his nose is in another.

Day 225

There were a few feathers on our patio this evening.  I guess a neighbourhood cat got a decent snack.

Day 223

This is the colour that I wanted the living room.  If I leave this chip on the table for 3 days, it will be the colour that is my living room.

Day 222

I stopped after work and picked up a couple of things at the grocery store.  They have the best fudge, and I was very proud that I only bought two small pieces.  I got home and noticed that they marked them under decadence.  Suddenly I started to feel guilty, and then they tasted that much better!

Day 219

Sugar on top of a buttery crust.  Yum!

Yes, I am still playing with my new and extremely price competitive lens.

Day 218

I bought a cheap (read: very cheap) fish eye lens.  It made me realize I should have spent the money on living room accessories and took some time to declutter.  Well, the declutter is for Saturday mornings.

Day 216

I have been talking about my new chair a lot.  Some of you have questioned whether Darren got a new chair.  He did, but his isn't in the living room.  His is in the room that we used to call the family room, and I now refer to as the man room.  I am sitting in his chair in the picture. It is dead center in front of the big tv.  It is not overly inviting for anyone else to watch tv. 

I am on Team Eric, for those of you who are wondering.

Day 215

Another cute onesie for the future niece or nephew.  I hope if this kid does somehow end up in jail, it is for a white collar crime like insider trading.  Because you know, it would be nice to have someone I trust help me with my investments.

Day 214

So Darren and I were out for a walk at the park.  He grabbed me behind the trees, and said "I don't think anyone can see us".  I sit on the bench thinking that we are really too old to be making out on a park bench, but I go with it.  As I sit on the bench, he started to lay on the ground.  I am thinking that we didn't bring a blanket and that we definitely are too old to be rolling around in the grass.  Then he said his back was killing him, and started to do some stretches to make it better.  I almost died laughing.  I guess we are too old for sex at the park.

Day 213

It was the annual Pirate Days in Mahone Bay.  A little different from the Disney version.
