After staying with my mom in Toronto for a few days, I’m now shifting all over the place visiting relatives. Last night and today I spent with a cousin, but was not able to get my computer to work with their Internet. Frustrating. I’m quickly checking up on some email and whatnot now before I move off to an Uncle’s house. Hopefully I’ll be online there. I feel so lost without it!
Other than Internet issues, the rest is great. Oma’s birthday was fun, but far too quick. I won’t see some relatives again before I leave, but I think I’ll see others on the weekend. I start my trip home on Sunday, but it will take me quite a long time. So, I should be set to get back to a more normal routine on Monday or Tuesday. Friday is mostly a write off because of our engagement party. But I’m really looking forward to that. :)
So, Today is BlogDay. So, I am going to share some of the blogs I think are cool but not often referenced:
1. Red Ferret Journal – Gadgets, cool sites, tech news and trivia
2. To Done – lots of handy tips
3. Gadgetry Blog
5. Bakingsheet – I love to bake!

Watch what you say at Starbucks next time, or you could become victim of the decaf revenger.

Gotta love them. My only grandparent, my Oma, whose name (Elizabeth) is my middle name, is turning 92 tomorrow!
Happy birthday Oma!
She’ll never see this, but the thought is there. :)
Luckily, I am here again for her birthday and our family is all getting together to celebrate. She is a wonderful grandmother – healthy, happy and even a little sarcastic. Always has candy in her purse. And plays a mean game of Rummikub.
I spent this past weekend camping with some friends at Porteau Cove, about 30 minutes from Vancouver. When we got there we noticed a sign with a list of the activities provided by the park interpreter in the next couple of days. Turns out that the interpreter was a friend of ours, what are the chances?
He was able to join us for a few minutes and he told me about his blog and then apparently I convinced him to switch from Blogger to WordPress (I don’t remember this, it must’ve been the tree that my forehead found in the dark). Anyway, his blog is called Scruffy Dan’s “Words to the Wise” and he talks about environmental issues among other interesting topics.
