Work, Work and a Sudden Cold Spell!

Hello there

Well, they say that time flies when you’re having fun, but I’ll tell ya something … time also flies when you’re working.

These past two weeks have been pretty challenging for me and taken me waaay out of my comfort zone. I was given a case study where I had to research the international market for a fictitious company and then write a 30-page report on it. To make matters worse, I have to do a PowerPoint presentation in class. Tomorrow. Yikes!!

Long-suffering Tori has been amazing – he’s listened patiently to my rantings and watched silently while I turned into a blithering idiot barely able to string a sentence together, all the while making supper every night and helping me make sense of it all. 

I haven’t managed to make anything new for my Etsy shop. I’m brimming with ideas and can’t wait to get at least ONE thing done. Hopefully over the lovely, long weekend.

I did learn something new this afternoon. I learned how to add a Facebook like box to my blog. I’m not sure I like it, but I am happy that I learned how to do it. 

It’s been freezing here in Vancouver these past few days. The rest of Canada calls us “weather wimps” because we complain when the temperature gets to zero deg. C. The last two days has been -15 with the wind chill and, honestly, I’m not geared up for it! I discovered that none of my sweaters were warm enough and I had to dig out a scarf and woollen hat from … oh wait, I didn’t have to dig at all – it was in my new drawer-organizer thingy I bought for the coat closet in my entry way last month. 🙂

I’ve added a few more things to it since this photo was taken. The new system is working pretty well and I’ve managed to find my sunglasses and keys every single day, no problem. The weather’s going to get worse before it gets better, but by Monday, it should start warming up again. I sure hope so as it’s getting a bit old being cooped up inside. I want to get outside in the fresh air and start growing vegetables and herbs and other lovely things!

Well, that’s about it from me. I hope the rest of the week treats you well and that you all have a good weekend.

I’m hoping to post some pictures of my new place mats, if I get round to it. My dining area needs a good clean. I spent so long cleaning the kitchen last weekend that I didn’t get to the dining area at all!

Cheers for now.
