Todays smile is brought to you by the [ :: fish lips :: ] I was gonna post... but got to laughing... :)
Clearly I'm good at amusing myself. :)
It was bright and sunny all morning... and yet... snow kept falling.
I s'pose a few little fat clouds were trying to show off to one another or something.
Bottom line... sunny but cold. :)

I"m afraid of what steven harper is going to do over the next 10 years.
I'm not a pacifist... I am all for kicking the snot out of an aggressor and protecting our sovereignty.
I'm a Canadian and I'm proud of that.
But I'm just not capable of feeling anything but fear and loathing over the senseless expense in money, lives, and the future by waging battles in far away lands for no good reason... I mean... I can grok that Afghanistan would like things at home to be better... but ... so? There's a lot of places on this earth that need improvement. What makes Afghanistan worthy of my tax dollars and canadian lives?
If you can't bring yourself to smile and enjoy your life...
How can you expect help someone else enjoy theirs?
Life needs to come with one of those little cards in the seat pocket on air planes...
The one that tells you to put your own oxygen mask on before helping your kids on with theirs.
Life is like that...
I'll smile along with you.
Life is a lot of little projects;
~ Amazing race and survivor are projects... the updates are a personal challenge thing... sometimes the suck, sometimes not, but they always force me to apply myself. :)
~ web site! d'uh... mostly just survivor update html, and house web, lately
~ cooking... anyone tries to tell you it's not a time consuming gig to keep a family fed properly... has no concept.
~ house web site... big time busy... Get new pics? New vid? have to "make" the video, size the pics, upload the pics and get thumbs on the gallery, update the web html, and upload all to the host.
~ working on the LuLu books... book one: the PEI vacation from two years ago. It takes a shit load of time to turn all the pics into 300 dpi and then sort out the text... book publishing is time consuming!!
~ my dads wood carving web site... my moms water colour web site...
~ EATNH!!!! (Everything About The New House) oh my god this takes a lot of time...
~ then there's the actual "work I get paid for"...
~ and the whole parenthood / spouse thing. :)
