well the weather outside is frightful....

... and the fire is not so delightful, thanks to our leaking chimney. We're geting it repaired soon...


Aaaanywho...this here is a view out the backyard from this morning; We awoke to a blanket of heavy snow which has since turned into slush. Once the sun came up, the falling snow turned to rain and..well, you get the picture... the front of the house looks much the same, except that we put up our Xmas lights a few days early (it was sunny and warmer on saturday), so it looks brighter out front!... okay, on to more pleasant things...

SO! I got to go to the Grey Cup on Sunday, and lemmee tell ya.. GOOD TIMES! the last Grey cup I went to was in Edmonton with Deb, and we were not treated to a great show then. Not only did the Eskies lose that one to Montréal, but the crushing crowd was so immovable that we missed all the pre-game fun leading up to the game, simply because people couldn't figure out how to move through the Commmonwealth stadium concourse.

This time, however, it was all good. Same teams playing, oddly enough, but with much different results. Edmonton took the championship by a field goal in the second overtime, and I saw it all from the 19th row on the goal line. SO MUCH FUN!! I went to the game on my own, having just gotten a free ticket the day before the game (thanks Marion!). Kate was at one of her three bridal showers that afternoon, and has little interest in Football anyway. So I had fun on my own. My only regret was not winning the $46,000 50/50 draw. yowza. I honestly didn't go in there expecting to cheer for Edmonton after they knocked out the Lions last weekend, but I licked my wounds and jumped on the Western division band wagon.

in other news, school is just two weeks away from being done for the semester, save one final exam on dec. 15th. It's a lot of papers and projects right now, but it's coming along. I should be able to put a few things to bed in the next few days... check that... HAVE to put a few things to bed. they're due this week...

Off to Kamloops this weekend coming up! Kate has her third of three bridal showers with my side of the family and friends, and I will go up to see the 'rents. Mum is fresh off report card-writing period, and has felt some releif as she always does, and dad's chemo treatments are going well, but as much as you hear it, it's always nice to see it for yourself.

okay, I s'pose that's about it... one month until the wedding--just waiting for people to respond to their invitiations now!(ahem)... plans are otherwise pretty much in order!

okay, musty get back to the homework... hope all are well out there! talk to you soon!
