I am back in my hometown for Christmas vacation! It is so nice to be home. Everything is just falling into place naturally as if I was never gone. The trees are covered in heavy white snow and the small streets are packed with seniors driving 40km/h.
Ah, it's good to be back.
There are a few things that are different however. I am mightily missing a certain individual from Edmonton. When you go from talking and interacting with someone so much to texting only...it sorta sucks. I'll see them soon though. I also no longer have a bedroom here. I am a nomad! I don't so much seem to mind however as much as I thought I would. My room is in Edmonton now.
We still have the same crooked tree here and my lovely fat kitties. I have been home for less then 3 days and already have had a dentist and orthodontist appointment (gross) Seen some of my best friends and stayed out until 5am. I have also eaten garlic fingers. SWEET MOTHERLAND GARLIC FINGERS AND DONAIR SAUCE. West coast, get on that, okay? Seriously.
Tonight my sister arrives and me and her have free run of the house. I have expertly put the Christmas lights up on the tree as always I am the Queen of Tree trimming around here. We'll see if we can't decorate with some bulbs before we fall asleep. Tomorrow morning I will be going to the local Saturday market here where I will proceed to eat my weight in all of my favorite home made foods that I have missed so much. List as follows:
8 trillion samosas
Chinese noodles and wontons
Steak on a stick
My other sister who is arriving next week has also requested a few things. I will basically be filling a bookbag.
Hi hi hi! I am dropping in for another quick update here. I am joyfully awaiting Christmas - only 8 days until I am flying home!
I am planning a small Holiday party for this coming Saturday for my co-workers and am so very very excited! I've been gathering some decoration ideas, food and drinks too. Party planning is FUN!! Someday I will be an excellent house wife. This shit just drives me. All I want to do is decorate and plan and prepare. Tonight I will be tripping to Canadian Tire and Superstore.
I have been reading an excellent book also recently called The Egyptian. The person who lent it to me is very special to me, and this just makes the read even more enjoyable. It's an old book, I've already torn off the cover and the edge binding by accident - someone give me the number of a book repair shop ASAP please!
5 more work days and I am a free bird. See you soon you filthy animals.
Finally - please follow the link to a superb cookie recipe, here.
Hey guys - just stopping in for a quick update between lovely book reading and watching Little Women. This week was full of wonderful things, business at work, celebrating birthdays, making friends and enjoying the snow.
I miss everyone right now so badly and am comforted in the thought that I will be home in less the 20 days. These days will go by quickly. I have already begun packing my bags in my head. I cannot wait.
Love to you all - things are well :) Hope you all have as much snow as we do here! My apartment just put up Christmas lights all along the iron fence that rings around the building. All smiles.
