It's Monday, What are you reading?

At this time of year I feel like I need to read something "Christmas" related.  I'll be doing a Christmas Reading display at the library soon, probably Friday... So on the night stand.
it a good way to get into the spirit,  well before Black Friday.

We shall Remember them...

Andrew Nowak
Dominic Nowak

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Prayers please...

Say a little prayer for my friends, they are going through a rough time, just now.

Sunday Salon...

Sunday Salon finds me "still" reading
I've gone back to my e reader.  It just seemed every book I had been reading was a hardcover,  too heavy to carry around.  As I get older the carrying is killing me.  I'm feeling increasingly like a bag lady, nice bags, but bags nonetheless.

On tap this week is the completion of a painting, (by Wednesday) and I'm not liking it yet.  I'll post,  if I remember when I'm done.  and a few dozen bulbs to put in, before the soil is frozen.  Of course I'll be battling the squirrels to keep them there.   I've gone hybrid this year,  not sure why, just liked the tangerine colour, I'm liking pink and orange together, hopefully the effort will bring forth a flourish of colour, announcing Spring.  Funny to think that far ahead when we are just now cooling to "winterish" temperatures.

It's Election day tomorrow  here in Canada, we shall see how things turn out.

Saturday Snapshot, Well it's here... winter that is

It's a beautiful sunny day here in the great White North.  I was out planting a few tulips, and pulling the last of the annuals, when what to my wondrous eyes should appear, but SNOW flurries.  I'm just out here in a sweatshirt, I do have socks on, but otherwise it's a nice cool day.  So why is the rain turning white?  No idea.  I packed up and went in, apparently we'll have a warmer day on Monday. 
coming to a neighbor near you, all too soon.
