At work

I am at work, preparing for teaching this afternoon. Unfortunately, I ran out of my good coffee stash and have a very weak substitute.... blah! Hopefully, I will not get any phone calls from school or daycare today. Wish me luck ;)

My favourite phrase

A recycle from the boys' room

My art gallery ;)

Yes, I am a geek :)

Update to Murphy's Law.....

I spoke too soon.... now there are 3/3 kids home sick..... and my grant is still not finished..... :P

I know that I am sick but does my hair look OK?

Murphy's Law

Of course, the Wednesday that I get to work from home to finish writing a grant also means 2/3 sick children and dog/cat decide to have WW3.....

Us, trouble?

I am sick but not THAT sick!

Me sick too!
Maybe the dog won't think to look for me in here.....

Brotherly bonding

Nothing brings little boys together as much as a little screen.....

Today's morning traffic was terrible; lots of snow, wind and overall typical Monday-ness. Instead of posting a picture of the depressing weather, I will post a picture of my favourite street.....  in honour of what I was missing in my car today ;)

In a house full of boys.....

.... I guess this is how, as being the only woman, I am perceived ;) Don't you love my hair?

Flower power!

A great candle holder.... from Etsy (another story)
More orchids

With all the snow outside, a bit of flowers in the house keeps hope alive!

My new favourite....

I have always loved the Danish brand Female First. Over the holidays, I bought this beautiful shirt:

I ordered it online from this great web shop called Isa Couture. Can you say free worldwide shipping? ;) Also, it arrived quickly and very nicely packaged. I definitely recommend it!

I am even thinking about ordering this Zebra striped sweatshirt! Great for spring (yes, I am totally jumping the gun and fantasizing about short pants and sandals). Just waiting for next pay.... what else is new? ;)

With wind chill

It is supposed to stay at around -30ÂșC today. Although it is not very fun to be outside, it is kind of pretty.

This is what cold looks like

We are in the middle of another arctic cold spell. This winter had been pretty tough so far! Maybe I will take up hibernation ;)

Testing, testing!

This is a test.... both for setting this blog up and my ability to keep to it! ;)
