Well as of tomorrow afternoon N n I’ll be at the hotel getting things ready for the start of the convention Friday morning.
If I’m remembering right opening ceremony is at 10 am though could be later I really don’t remember right now. All I do know is its going to be a long weekend of work but followed by a week off work (March break).
N n I already have our suits packed n ready just need to pack the rest of our clothing n other essential items, rice maker, extra coffee maker, cooler, etc.
Will update things as time does allow for it.
Gluten-Free Vegan Mixed Berry Muffins with Crumble Topping
These muffins taste great and unless you know that they are vegan and gluten free you might not realize its the case. Not 100% diabetic friendly do to the high carb content per serving, but paired with something else for a morning meal (brunch) or as a snack they are not a bad option (I didn’t notice any spike in my levels after eating one).

Well another christmas under the belt and another year coming to a close for that matter.
This year for Christmas was different from previous years in that this year gifts where not as plentiful under the tree (which is alright, it’s not what’s under the tree that counts but in ones heart) but yes there where some gifts.
This year dad got several things that he wasn’t expecting including two sets of night clothing, his yearly calander and several choices pieces of his favourite candy but like a lot of things one gift that we put away is MIA (which isn’t uncommon around this house when it comes to gifts, we tend to misplace at least one or two each year).
Here are the promised images that I took while at the Cliff Dwellings while on Vacation down in Colorado Springs.
Well today almost didn’t happen as in we almost didn’t get to go because as soon as N’s mom n Tim went off to temple their sewer system backed up n created a mess of things that N tried to correct but couldn’t, turned out that it was something only a plumber could fix.
We left for Manitou after N wrote hir mom a note on the matter. When we arrived in Manitou it was easier to find a parking spot then I was thinking it would be but oi it’s paid parking now not free around the park like it use to be years ago. We got the jugs from the tracker n filled them for N’s mom from the spring – Manitou has this natural mineral water spring that has a fizzy deal to it n reminds me of our soda stream water without flavoring.
Well today N’s mom had to do some stuff with her husband so she left us her car keys n a spare house key n left us to go when we pleased.
Which meant a trip to Chapel Hills Mall which is really a big deal for many of the locals apparently but compared to the malls around here its small n could fit into the Scarborough Town Center twice with room left over.
