It's minus fricken' forty Celsius out there people! It took me a half hour to get dressed to take this selfie, my camera was not happy with me. Apparently Alberta was one of the coldest places on earth yesterday. Why? Why? Why do I live here...well….so I can stay home, watch my old episodes of Charmed and enjoy my Christmas tree of course. The fact that my loved ones need Christmas presents is of no consequence to me….I am staying home this weekend.

Saturday, November 2, 2013
Every November a melancholy settles over me…usually I get like this three times a year: November, late January and April, when the snow loves to stick around even though it's no longer wanted. November is also my birthday (thankfully towards the end of this miserable month, so currently I am still only 51!). Today is our second dump of snow reminding me that I live in winter land and makes me browse blogs of lucky peeps who live in paradise i.e. southern California.
Times like this I always fall back to the lovely blog of DeeAnne White of Live the charmed life. Her "100 lists" are full of empowering advice and self-help tidbits and heck…it just makes me feel better. My favourite two lists are the 100 reasons to elegantly uncomplicated your life and 100 ways to live slow. These are, in my opinion, a must read if you feel life is a bit stagnant or out of control or, if like me, you just have the blahs!
Happy weekend all!
