Saturday Night - From Leona to Noel

It's been a bit of a sad night for me. It a few weeks to Christmas and I'm stuck at home doing work. Don't feel too badly for me. I'm my own worse enemy. If anyone has any idea of how to get over procrastination, I would appreciate it. I really mean it. I think I need a recovered procrastinator - not people like Erin or Tania who always get so much done.

So, I was home watching the tele. It started with the X-factor. Yes, a bit embarrassing but I've never watched it before the quarter finals. Then I was hooked. Personally, I was happy to see Leona win. So that was then and now it is Noel Gallagher. He's got a concert on ITV. He's looking a lot calmer than in his younger days.

WOW. Time flies. I started this blog more than 2 years ago and it seems like I could probably plot the number of entries on my blog against my attendance at the gym and have a similar average per year :)

Oh well.. another year, another set of unrealised objectives.

I wanted to share a pic from my Aunt's party that we weren't able to attend. It looks like they had a lot of fun. I really liked the idea of taking pictures in the empty frame.

Evidently our quickly editted movie was a hit. Yeah for us! We hit one objective.

Objective for This Week:
  • Make it to the plane on time without any stress
  • Finish the business plan so I don't have to work during the holidays
  • Thanking the world and give a little back

A bit of a distraction

I should be working right now, but we just found this shot of Mr. Licky from our trip last December. For the last 3 years, we have take a little weekend break at the beginning of December. Last year, we went to Barcelona where we stayed with Kathleen and Dave. As we prepare for next weekend's trip in Carlisle, England, we found our shots from last year.

Barcelona - who needs Gaudi's architecture when you have models as photogenic as Mr. Licky.

Objective Update:
If you read yesterday's post, it was all about a video for my aunt. Welll in typical last minute lisa style, we did it. We didn't leave the house until about 2pm which gave us very little time before the sunset. It a whirlwind London tour where we had to literally RUUUUUUUUN after the light. It kept getting darker and darker and then to top it off the battery in our video camera started to run out - sheesh! But we did it, as soon as J uploads it to utube, i'll put a link here.

This week's objectives
I have lots of work objectives but that isn't the point is it. Then I would have to say I would like to buy at least 2 of my Christmas gifts. We have a good idea for all the twerps. If we decide to go with it, I'll be able to knock of 6 just like that

The Beauty of the Past

I have been quiet for almost 2 years. Kind of. In fact, i have been busy avoiding my original objectives I set out for myself and this blog. I'm back ... I hope.

You have to start with baby steps. Here is my first step i.e. finding my username and password. That is a challenge in itself. I accomplished that objective.

I thought I would share the beauty of old photographs. This is a photo of my mother and her friend. Isn't it and aren't they beautiful?

The other photo is a picture of her soon to be sweetheart - my Dad. Here he is with some old friends from his Wheeler days (his hockey team). Awwww, the snow. I miss it only at this time of year. Oh well I'll get it when I'm home at Christmas.

Now off to accomplish today's objective - we're making a little video for my wonderful Aunt who is turning 60 soon.
