Okay, I’m a bit of a weather junkie, and I’d much rather have snow than rain or freezing rain if it’s going to be cold. So imagine my excitement when I heard we’re getting 30 (yes, count them) cm of snow starting tomorrow morning. The ski trails and hills could sure use it! So why bitch about winter … get out and enjoy it…you may even get a snow day once in a while!


Walking home from work today, noticed a couple of new happenings in the hood.

  • Where Magic Cleaners used to be the new sign is now up: The Dry Cleaning Co. It’s got new windows too. No sign of life inside though, and the windows are still covered up on the inside.
  • There’s a big sign on the east side of the building that Petit Bill’s Bistro is in that says there’s a 3000 sq. ft lower level retail space for lease. Rob, of course walked in to the restaurant to get the scoop. They said it’s in the back, likely where the Readers Choice (or something like that) bookstore is located.
  • The new Spanish place that opened where the organic bakery used to be is closed for renovations to get their kitchen installed. Free tasters February 14 to 29! Then they reopen on March 1.
  • The house beside the Diner is up for sale (okay it’s not new news but I haven’t posted before so its new to here)
  • The really grand house across from the Diner sold. We’re thinking it would make a great English pub….we’ll see. As soon as there are signs of life, we’ll start nosing around!

See the pics

For most of my 20s and 30s people said I’d change my mind and want to have children. Sometimes, I admit, it was fun to spoil other people’s kids. You know, load them up with chocolate, get them all hyper, then drop them back off at the parents. At some point I realized those parents would get revenge on me if I ever did change my mind.

I didn’t, and then I met Rob. He introduced me to seeing the world, which seemed to be a whole lot better than just staying in one place. Besides, it took me so long to figure out what I wanted out of life, I’m now too selfish to compromise on wanting to see the world with the guy I love.

We hope you follow along with us on our travels and can live a day in the life of the frugal child-free travelers….
