I'm in mourning...


Today in the mail I received the final issue of my favorite magazine: Wish magazine. They have stopped publishing at the end of 2008 because of the economy. It had a little bit of everything: beauty, fashion, food, entertaining, home and decor. Best of all it was Canadian, so I know that the prices of the products featured in the magazine were in Canadian and that I could buy these products in Canada. Some Amercian magazines are great too, but some American companies don't ship to Canada so sometimes it's disappointing to find a great product and then find out I can't have it. I am now in a search of another great magazine to subscribe to, however I doubt I will find one as great as Wish! I will miss the 20-minute supper club feature in each issue...

Printer ink too expensive?


If I were to buy 4 ink cartridges (one in each color) from Staples, it would have cost $107. I bought 4 cartridges from eBay and it cost me $17, including shipping. They work just as good and I saved almost $100! I can use the money I saved to buy a Christmas gift to myself! Any suggestions?

Snow and bow

Last night it snowed. I love it when there is no wind so the snow stays on the trees so they look half white!


This afternoon, my floor was decorating the lounge with Christmas decorations. Someone was thoughtful to put a bow on my door.

Have you ever lost a camera?




I never have. But now I know there is something I can do if I ever find a camera, USB stick or memory stick! Some photos from a found camera can get posted to this website called IFoundYourCamera to help the owner reunite with his camera! The website asks if anyone knows who the people are in the pictures. They also state where the camera was found.

There might be hope that your precious memories are not lost forever!

Nintendo DS cozy

When I was younger, my mother taught me how to knit. I started with dishcloths. When I got bored with that, I found "cooler" stuff to do than knit, but a few years ago I got back into knitting and taught myself how to do more advanced stitches and how to read a pattern (with a little help from my mom, but soon I started to do things she thought were too advanced for her to do). I had just bought a Nintendo DS, and wanted a case to keep it free from scratches, but all the ones in stores were just black and boring, so I decided to knit one! It's brown with a pink and white argyle print.

Parade of Lights

This evening I went to see the Halifax Parade of Lights. It was pouring rain, so I got soaked everywhere except for my feet thanks to my great Columbia boots! Here are a few photos: Santa, The Grinch and dancing cows.
