Winding Down with Naomi

Hmm...what is this all about, really? It's me jotting down ideas about things that go on in my life, and some occassional pictures of things I've seen and done.

The thing to do!

Post on an interesting day like Feb 29! Such excitement! (oops- I'm going to have to change the date on my sports watch!!)

Feb 29- I thought it would be an interesting day. Nothing much really happened though. I tried to find a replacement thinger-ma-bob for my car (to hold the license plate to the front bumper), but had no success. I tried to win at "roll up de rim", no success there either. I called a friend to try to go out- nada. I DID, however, see a couple of classmates, and go to an interesting talk over lunch. That was nice. February was a cold snowy, travel filled month. On to March, with hopefully some fun and excitement in store!

I'm going to go an make ice, and a fancy drink for me and watch a chick flick with some fellow chicks. (Not a bad plan, no being Sadie Hawkins*, not this year!)

I shall probably get some work done on photos this weekend, but don't hold your breath!

*thanks for the correction bec!

It's that time of year. The house sold. I find out where I'm going to spend the next couple of years of my life soon. (My room got ALL cleaned up in prep for going on the market, and now it seems simple to keep clean!) Also- I'm graduating in the near future. (I don't need to worry about the house disappearing underneath me, I'll have moved out before the new owners get possession).

Snow keeps coming. I hope that Spring will soon be here, but that remains to be seen (tonight it's to be -22 C).

Choir was fun tonight. I enjoy singing. I also spent some time with little kiddies who are part of the congregation today/tonight. That was fun too.

Just thought I'd keep you in the loop.

Slowly but surely!

I will get through my photos from the past couple of months. I wont tell you that yesterday I took MORE photos (only a couple more!) of skating on the canal!-- I made it! (I've been out EVERY year I've been here in Ottawa- and some years many times!) The food was fun enough to snap a picture of too- but it's not ready to go yet. --

I've just made it through Christmas- gimme a break!

Love to you all!

No pics yet. I'm slow. I've made it to the 27th of Dec though! There are some really cute ones that will go up- once my lappy is connected to the net again!

Hugs and love.

And, done!

Sort of! I'm done SOME of my gallivanting around, until tomorrow comes when I fly to Toronto and then drive to mom and dad's.

Some of the places I've been in the past one and a half week. (Not including the return from Down Under):
Ottawa, Halifax (and Dartmouth), London, Kingston, Hamilton, Toronto and Sudbury.

I have enjoyed the trips- though I'm feeling a little weary. I think I've spent the most time here in Sudbury- and have been playing around. Yesterday I went skating on the lake and today I went cross-country skiing. I found myself covered in snow a little more often than I'd hoped. Ah well!

I shall sleep well tonight- with a week off ahead of me!

Just a moment ago I turned on the television and found Pride and Prejudice- so much fun! Too bad I don't feel up to sitting and watching it all.

I hope to get some photos up this week. That should be exciting.
Good night!

Trains planes and automobiles

I seem to travel by all modes of transportation lately.

Winter travel does that to me. I thought I'd try to leave some of the nasty road travel to other people.

I'm currently in Kingston- back to Ottawa tomorrow. Then- a day or two to relax before hitting the road again.

I will hopefully get some photos/details of my trips out to you soon!

I'm off to relax- Bec style- book and bath!
