#365 CompleShawn, and a new ResoluShawn

Well, for better or for worse, I'm done.

I may have accidentally missed a day, and sneakily back posted now and again.

BUT, technically, there was a post, per day, for the year.

I can tell you this though,  not again. If I do Blob in the future I will:
1) Post a link here.
2) Post when I have something to say, rather than post for the sake of posting.

But, like I said, I've done it.

And once it's done, it's done.

So that's it.

Thanks for reading, if you read...

And if you're there...


Oh and if you're wondering... my New Year's Resolution for 2015 is...

... to Drink more.

No, seriously, I plan on drinking more.

We have a very well stocked liquor cabinet, and it's about time we used it.

So, while I don't plan on drinking every day, I can certainly say, once or twice on a Week Night, and throughout the weekend.  Not constant, but a nice cocktail here and there...

Up Yer Bum!

#364 Work Priority MalfuncShawn

Well today was far better on the commute, but far worse at the office.

There were only a total of 5 of us in the office today, which don't get me wrong, THAT was awesome,  but there were two people from Finance that basically wanted a pint of my blood, a kidney and my first born.

And as of 3PM they both fucked off until the 2nd. Meanwhile myself and 2 others have to come in tomorrow because it's the "end of year", which means there's a shit load of EXTRA things to do and only three of us to manage the entire office. 

Can. Not. Wait.

#363 Work Environment CelebraShawn

The downside of today was that I had to work.

The upsides were:

The commute was easy, and lots of seats available on Metro and Bus.

The office was nearly empty so I was able to just casually do my work.

Typhoid Mary left a little mess for me to clean up, but guess what, I couldn't because of shipping restrictions this week, so SHE can clean it up when she gets back next Monday and deal with a pissed off client and sales rep.

And I still have a good stash of Eggnog, so the Coffee Nog was my  beverage of choice all day.

And what's even better (fingers crossed) tomorrow will be the same!

#362 Home Sweet Home. CelebratShawn

The song, "There's no place like home for the holidays" should be re-written to "It's great to me home after the Holidays".

We had a wonderful time at the Chalet. A wonderful Christmas. A wonderful 5 days of rest and relaxation. 

We love being down in the Townships, but even more than that, we LOVE being home.

Our things, our sofa, our bed, our shower.

It's always good to visit, but it's even better being back at home.

#361 Wildlife ConservaShawn

Aside from always having a relaxing time, and amazing sleeps, I think what I love most about the Chalet is all the wildlife we see in the area.

Wildlife count this trip:

2 White Tail Deer
2 Raccoons
1 Red Fox 
Countless Red and Grey Squirrels and Chipmunks
1 Eagle
And various Ducks (Mallard, Wood etc), Loons Morning Doves, Woodpeckers, Bluebirds... and Wild Turkeys.

Unfortunately in none of these instances were we able to get pictures.  That's the thing with wild animals... they make surprise appearances. You never have a chance to get your phone or camera to get some great pics.

So we live in the moments, enjoy the experience and look forward to the next sighting...

#360 Missing PrecipitaShawn

Today was a perfect Friday.

To start, I was not working... Thank you Boxing Day.

Add to that, sleeping in. A relaxing morning at the chalet, a leisurely drive around lac Massawippi and the company of my man and the dogs. 

All in all it was as close to perfect as it is going to get.  

If I was to critique anything, it would have been the lack of snow, otherwise... perfection!
