>Was leaving Shoppers today and glanced at the Winnipeg Free Press (don’t worry, I’m still not reading the local news yet). On the cover was a picture of Waldo the grizzly bear from the local zoo. He has passed away at the ripe old age of 36.
I have some fond memories of him when I visited the zoo as a kid with my family, and then later, when I worked there for a couple of years. I would see him every day I worked. I mostly remember him sitting on his rock and pacing back and forth. I always wished he had more space to roam, but when you run a zoo that’s free to the public for so many years, I guess you can’t expect much expansion.
Bye Waldo, hope you have tons of room to roam now.

>My coworker Jheryll got me hooked on this guy today. His name is Aziz Ansari and he’s hilarious! Enjoy (warning – some shady language)
Oh, and the “sheets” video reminds me of when I used to work at Pacific Linen and became a crazy linen lady. I’m obsessed about having good bed linens!

This beautiful bouquet was delivered to my work this week from Charles. First time I have received flowers at work. So cute!
The roses are lovely, colourful and sweetly fragrant. The smell is intoxicating. They truly are the perfect flower.
A lovely bouquet

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted something. Can’t really think of anything to talk about, so I will just post some pics of my finished bathroom.
I should say almost finished. The floor is still not complete as not enough tile was ordered and my beautiful new sink was crushed by a cat. Yep, that’s right, my sink is crushed. I had a vase full of flowers on it and one of the beasts pushed the vase over and…crack! So I am now waiting for my floor to be completed and a new sink to be delivered. I’m going backwards! If the tub falls through the floor, I’m packing up and leaving!
Oh well, I just love the new bathroom, so the floor delay and sink breakage have not got me down.
