Good Things Come to Those Who Wait...

Good things comes to those who wait, even if they didn't have a choice about wanting to wait or not and even if they grumbled about waiting the entire time! But I survived and my family finally arrived last night. I even got my food mail and the box of Halloween candy that I ordered 6 weeks ago...you know so it would be here for Halloween. Apparently whoever deals with Canada post thought it should go into the "it can wait pile" because I can see by the little airport sticker that it arrived in Iqaluit on October 22, you know like 4 weeks ago. Apparently it only took that extra little bit of time to make it the one hour flight over here, because Canada post is a priority and all. Now I have a truck load of candies and mini chocolate bars to deal with before I leave on Thursday for the south. I guess I could just leave them to console Nathan for the entire month he is up here without me, but I'm probably going to be evil and pack as many as I can back. Plus I have my family to share them with.
We got out for a nice walk and snowmobile ride this morning, enough time to throughly freeze us through to last the entire day. I think the Little Girl enjoyed it very much as she "danced" around around to the sound of the snowmobile.

Not sure the exact dates you are coming out but as I just found out Le Cache (April Cornell) has gone under and all the stores across Canada are closing out by Nov 28. 70% off everything and they have some darling little girls things (folksy, hippy, Indian romantic type stuff), lots of velevt, corduroys, white cottons and such. In Ottawa there is one on Banks street.

OK, call me crazy, but I had to share this with you:

I had an incredibly vivid dream last night that I came to visit you and found you swimming with a sea creature that looked like something out of a medieval legend. It was like a sea snake with wings, and it had a face like death itself. It was also holding a long log, like the trunk of an ancient tree. I watched the two of you splashing around in the water, and you showed me how you made a special face (wrinkling your nose and sticking out your tongue) to let the creature know you were holding your breath. When it saw you make the face, it knew it could put your head under water without getting water into your lungs. If you played with it, it would take you to the other side of the lake.

I'm sick today with a nasty cold, and I think that may explain the dream.

I guess those preservatives are good for something after all. The delayed service is a social problem.
