1. I was invited to a cookie exchange this week.
So it begins... The season. Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend, and it marks the start of a season of indulgence. In previous years, I was browsing my cookbooks by now to plan out which decadent treats I would create. We have to remember that Christmas is December 25. It's a day, not a season.
I politely declined the invitation. I don't need 10 varieties of cookies in my house.
2. I am officially a regular at the pool now.
The pool staff no longer asks to see my pass when I show up to swim. I say hi to the lifeguards. I chat with all the other regulars. I'm recognized and I belong there.
3. Produce handlers should treat fruit with more respect.
I went grocery shopping yesterday and wanted to buy some apples. Every single apple I looked at had bruises on it. Every one. Ridiculous. I have watched grocery store workers dumping fruit or literally tossing it into piles. I have no doubt that this is what happened this time. Not okay! I want unbruised apples.
