Time flies when you’re having fun! We are in the home stretch of October and things here have been busy. I’m awaiting a phone call to start a new job, the best paying job to date so I’m sitting on pins and needles waiting for the phone call to come in. There is still a few weeks before I start so I am excited. This one has benefits which I have never had before. I’ll be working for a place that has many companies throughout Ontario and I’ll be the front line once again. To say I am tired of the temp jobs is putting it mildly but finally it looks like my time has come to be on a full time payroll again, more to follow about this job when I am behind the desk with pen in hand.
Thanksgiving went well this year. We had dinner at my daughters place on the lake and what a wonderful day it was. The weather was perfect for a walk around the area surrounding the lakeside community. We even trekked through a wooded area leading to a horse farm. I had to laugh at my daughter because even though an electric fence sign was CLEARLY posted she had to check it out for herself and ended up down on her knees with a jolt that made her cuss loudly. A few others had to check it out as well and yes they were sent to their knees too. What can I say…trial by error? Dinner was delicious and filled with laughs about our walk and even Hanna joined in the laughter while putting in her 2 cents.
I think we are feeling the ends of Indian summer here. The weather has been gorgeous with afternoons being sweater weather and the nights giving us frost, but hey, we are Canada after all so it’s par for the course.
This month we also have a Municipal election happening for all of Ontario. Voters in the province of Ontario will elect mayors, councillors, school board trustees and all other elected officials in all of the province's municipalities.
I’ll be so glad when it is over since I am tired of the phone calls from the different candidates asking for my vote. I’m tired of the constant posting of political views and being told “Don’t forget to Vote” on Face Book so I have started to delete any posts regarding this. Call me bitchy, but I am a grown woman who DOES vote and as far back as I can remember voting has always been a private thing since they have private booths where one can cast their vote in private. The political debates and constant political views on Facebook are really annoying. We get enough of that during the Televised Debates with all the Candidates. I often wonder if these people who insist on being political on a Social Network would stand at the voting booths and declare to everyone that enters who they are voting for…I think not! So why do it on a social network? Ok that was more a rant than anything, but oh well J
I hope everyone has a SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN
