  • Thought I would change this tissue box from Black to white. So I got some craft paper , scissors and double sided tape. Voila - Now it's white!

  • Had to get an orange craft paper for the background here because white on white is invisible on the screen. Do you Like it? I certainly enjoyed making it.

  • I have not had work since September 12 this year. That's 3 months of vacation for me. My bank account is starting to get depleted and so I need to look for work ASAP. Here you see my Application papers for various job opportunities within Fernie. All I need now is a job with a structured schedule and full time in nature.

  • I accepted a job at the Stanford Inn in Fernie as a housekeeper. I start Training on December 20.

  • A Stray cat - poor kitty. always hungy. It seems like it's owners have forgotten about him. We don't even know what the cat's name is. But it sure looks like it's been neglected, so we can't help but feed it. Poor thing. It comes over everyday for a a meal.

Last November 24, 2007 - Ron and I were cleaning out his old yellow cabin and found this from his dad's stockroom. I thought it was so funny, I should post it. This funny gift was from V. published under my blog with her consent of course. Thanks V! Big Hugs!


Which Do You Think Is Better?

Which of these two photos of the same subject would you prefer? This is just one of the many things I've been pre-occupied with lately. Tonight I am learning about how to recycle old poster/photo frames .


December 2, 2007 - Sunday

It was minus 14 (Celsius) today, about 4 inches of snow. Went for a walk with Ron and Fox (tim's dog). It's like winter wonderland outside. But it seems the snow affects me in a weird way. I sometimes find myself with an aching in my heart that makes me feel like crying, especially when I hear Christmas songs. I haven't seen my closest friends and family for more than 3 years now. I feel sometimes as If I would die from the heartache. I wonder why do I subject myself to such things? perhaps I need to simplify my life. I have a brain. I will eventually figure it out and learn from all these. Ha ha


12.1 Walking In Snow

December 1, 2007 - Saturday, 4:05 PM, Elko, British Columbia, Canada. I had a great time doing a two-hour walk with Ron, Paul and Tim (& Fox - the dog) today. It was -15 celcius, plus the wind was blowing some. Rosie cheeks by the time we got back home. My face felt like somebody overdosed my cheeks with anesthesia. In order to enjoy outdoors in such extreme weather make sure to dress properly, otherwise it will be nothing but torture. I had to learn that the hard way so many times during the past 3 winters.

Today Ron comes home from his long Vacation. I am so excited for his homecoming that I decided to make an art wall. Lots of meas...
