Watching the Patriots toying with Buffalo, (it's 35-7 at the half with 4 TDs for Moss), which is a good opportunity to catch up in my blog. (Heather's working on her chapter).

I decided to start working out again, to strengthen my shoulders. They still feel sore after a physical hockey game, so I'm hoping this will help. I used to work out 2 - 3 times a week until I first hurt my rotator cuff in 2004, and have never got back into it. So today I set up my bench in the basement and dusted off the weights. I didn't use much weight today, we'll see how I feel tomorrow.

Tried another LCBO recipe, Lemon risotto with grilled tiger shrimp. It was very lemony, almost too lemony. Still, it wasn't too bad and we'll try it again (with less lemon).

We had a late Friday night at Celine's little celebration at the completion of her PhD, and were feeling a bit out of sorts on Saturday morning. Went for a walk around the neighbourhood, which turned into a two hour walk up to the Danforth and back. The leaves have finally started falling in bunches and it was beautiful with the ground covered in yellow leaves everywhere. We had lunch at Queen Pita (a Lebanese restaurant on Queen just east of Leslie). We had tried it out last weekend and it was pretty good.

We started Friday night at Baldini's. Tony (the owner) had given us a gift certificate as a wedding gift so we used it for dinner. It was excellent as usual. The restaurant was pretty busy which is good to see.

Raccoons had started to get into the roof above the front porch so I closed it up today. As part of the rebuilding of the front porch this summer, the plan was to have Tony (our electrician) install pot lights, and then I was going to finish the ceiling. However, Tony broke a couple ribs playing football and hasn't been able to make it over here yet. I'll finish the roof properly next spring, for now I just put up plywood.

Our green bin went missing after garbage day last Wednesday. I thought about putting up some posters on light posts but Heather didn't think it was such a great idea. It turned out our neighbour had accidentally picked it up (the garbage folks sometimes throw them on the neighbour's side of the fence).

We tied at Ultimate last week, and lost at hockey. The Ultimate game was fun. I dropped a couple passes that I would normally catch. I think playing only once a week is affecting my timing. In hockey we got burnt by the other team's speed. We held the play in their end for most of the game, but then they'd end up on a 3-1 and score. It was a bit frustrating.

Well I should get ready for bed.
