It's a quiet winter day. We were up early (for a weekend) around 8am. Had blueberry pancakes with maple syrup and fruit salad of strawberries, blueberries and bananas. The berries have been strangely fresh this winter. I make the pancakes with half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour, which tastes pretty good. I had tried it 100% whole wheat flour but they came out very heavy.

Most of morning we've heard the sounds of various neighbours shoveling snow. I suppose I should get out there shortly, but right now I'm comfortable lying down on the couch with the laptop on my lap (on top of my lap oddly enough).

Almost forgot about my big news! I'm going to the Leaf-Canadiens game tonight in the Star box! Cool, eh? We were having a beer or two in Cafe Eric yesterday afternoon. Cafe Eric is my office at One Yonge, but I have a fridge now and it turns out that you can put beer in it to keep cool! Instead of going across the street for a beer, most people at work drop by my office, sometimes with a six-pack (it's handy that the the LCBO across the street sells beer). I put on iTunes, and move my portable table outside my office with a couple chairs (the "patio").

So we were having a beer, when someone from Circ walked by looking for Circ Support, because he had a couple 9th row tickets to the Raptors game to give away. Circ Support had all gone home for the day, so he offered them to us! Ryan was pretty happy to take them (he's a big fan). We were just getting over the excitement when I got a call from Sarkis at VPC asking if I wanted to go the Leaf game on Saturday (tonight)!

We've booked a couple bands for the wedding. The Manorfield String Quartet will be playing at the church, and the Boys in the Kitchen at the reception (they're one of the house bands at the Olde Dublin Pub in Charlottetown). We still have to confirm the details but at least we have the dates reserved.

I think I may get off the couch and go shovel the sidewalk.
