Some good news..... share on a Friday!

1. Today, it's basically Christmas-come-early for the boy & I. Today in OWen Sound is Goods Exchange Day!!! Also known as Giveaway Day, tonigh ti sthe night you place your unwanted, but still useable, items out by the curb, and scavengers like me come by and pick them up. I never would have thought this is what my life would be like. And then I moved to Owen Sound.....

2. I just discovered they now serve oatmeal at Tim Horton's and this made me way more excited than it should! I love Tim Horton's coffee.....but I have always found it hard to find something remotely healthy to eat there in the mornings. I was thrilled a few weeks ago when they introduced the breakfast wraps on whole wheat tortillas...and then I remembered how dismal tasting their breakfast sandwhiches are, and I figure the wraps won't be much better. But they now serve maple oatmeal as well as oatmeal with real mixed berries.

3. I saw snow this morning! Not on the ground, mind you....just on a few cars, and they must have come from out of town. But it was still pretty exciting!

4. The other night we stopped at our local covnevience store because I decided I wanted a can of soup. We stop there quite frequently and since the boy insists on talking to everyone in his path, he's become quite chummy with the couple that own the store. Anyways, the wife had been ver ysad to learn about Lola, and insisted that I take a fall mum home with me. I argued with her, telling her I couldn't accept but she insisted....and in the end she ended u psending me home with two HUGE fall mums for free! I almost felt bad taking them but the woman said she wanted to get rid of them all before the frost. So if you are looking for a great deal on fall mums, go to Daisy Mart ion the west side of Owen Sound. The plants are gorgeous and they still have tons of different colours and styles!

Have a great weekend everyone!
