“Would you like strawberries or mandarines in the salad?” I looked up from my book and looked around the room. The voice was directed at me. Everyone looked at me expectantly as I weighed the pros and cons of both. To read more about my strawberry extravaganza go here!
I am involved with Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan every year, this one is no exception. I’m making my grapefruit cupcakes…for more on this post go here! I’m super excited to make them again. They were a hit with in my family so hopefully everyone else likes them as well.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Unfortunately I got the flu and was out for the first days back at school. As I’m writing this I’m watching the wind swirl a world full of snow flakes. For the record, I dislike winter very much. It means it’s cold and snowy. I do enjoy sitting inside with a fire watching The Food Network of TLC.

This is just my view, although I wouldn’t reccomend it to anyboday out there. There are a couple of movies that I’d like to see, but they can wait. I’m excited for the new Seasons of “Being Erica” [starting Tuesday, September 22] and “Heartland”[starting Sunday, October 4]. They are two shows that I have not missed an episode of. *Yawn* I’m getting tired…I should go rest a bit. Good bye my dear friend She said in an english accent. I shall miss you dearly.
