Things that make you wonder why you are getting up

Okay- I am finally posting. Work has been somewhat crazed lately.

First of all, something good. The lovely Bea at BaaBaa Black Sheep has a contest. She has great prizes, so go on over and see her. She is here- http://bea-blacksheep.blogspot.com/2008/10/presidential-race-abigail-and-augustus.html You will have to select from some choices as to whether or not her beautiful dogs can help foretell the election. Could be fun! Make sure you tell her I sent you!
Here's some of the weird stuff.

I sent Missie Annie off to Guides last night, and was all set to curl up with a book, or maybe some knitting, and then, IT HAPPENED. A power outage. Like a serious one. We were out for about 45 minutes (hubby went to pick up Annie, but the Guides were having a Halloween party and they figured it was all part of the fun!) (Surprisingly, Sean was the only parent who went over there to pick up a daughter. Wouldn't you think a good parent would?) So, we finally got power back, got Annie back, and I settled in again for a bit of a lazy. AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN! The power blipped, and then out for an even longer time!!! Poor Bear was in the bedroom when it went out the second time, and the poor dear- I think he was getting scared (and confused). All I could hear was this sorrowful "AAAaaaaaaarooof. Roof?" So once I saved him (I had to go and get him with a lit flashlight). I was the only one up when it came on again (I wanted to make sure the clocks were all set properly).

And then, another reason to wear a black armband...........

THIS is what greeted me when I put the dog out this morning! (pardon the pool equipment-we had taken things out to dry them out so as to be able to store them) And then it SNOWED. Enough to stay on the ground! NOT GOOD.

And I am bored with what I am knitting and I want a new something to knit. I am turning into a knitting slut.

This can't be good.

My turn, Gypsy. Yes, it is getting on bed time (like 11:30...got to try and get to bed earlier). No knitting here tonight. I was a good girl, sat down and balanced the checkbook, then paid the bills. Broke again...good thing I have a healthy stash!

I think Milton is the only spot in all of Ontario where snow has not stuck to the ground. It's only a matter of time. Sigh. Mittens and hats and snowpants...oh my.

Hmmm, not power outages around my neck of the woods. Weird.

I was very not impressed with the snow that stuck around after hitting the ground. It's not even november yet! Ick!

"another reason to wear a black armband..." Oh, my gosh, too funny, Deb!

Oh no snow! Can we have some? Its hot here again today. Earlier in the week I was so hoping for cold Halloween. Not so much.

Sorry you are so bored with the knitting. You could always rip stuff and start with a clean slate.
