Good Morning! It's a chilly one.
On the memo front, I received a rejection letter from our workers compensation board denying my claim for my injury at work. If my claim had been accepted it would have meant that any physio or massage treatments I needed from my fall, would have been completely covered. My claim was rejected because my boss did not pay premiums for this coverage (I was not aware). And yes I agree, considering I work for a physio/massage clinic, you would think my boss would offer to waive the costs for at least a few treatments! I'll say no more ...
On the mail delivery, we received one of the many glossy & very colourful flyers for Christmas decorating & gift guide. Canadian Tire is a national brand & it's roots, I believe started out in automotive parts & needs but over the years has expanded to be an everything store other than grocery or pharmacy. Canadian Tire is what many call a national treasure, they even have their own dollars. Every Canadian has a stash of Canadian Tire dollars at home in the junk drawer.
Out in the garden, I finally got the rose huts on, just hours before the first snow fall. We had record low temperatures for this time of year & I think many people, including us, got caught out with the sudden deep freeze & with so many gardening things still to be done, like drain the water barrels.
In the shopping cart this week was a couple of purchases needed for the house; a dehumidifier for the main floor of our house. We run one in our basement but being that our house is 4 levels; affectionately known as a back split; we decided we needed one on the main floor to help with the moisture build up on all the new double glazed vinyl windows! I'll say no more ...
Another purchase was a set of icicle Christmas lights. When Mr Man & I were shopping a few weeks ago I stopped & admired these lights. I think the light running up & down the plastic icicle makes them look so like real melting icicles. Mr Man bought me a string of 20. I am not sure where we will hang them. The string is 10 feet with 20 lights so not enough for the whole front of the house. AND no, we aren't purchasing any more strings - got that Mr Man!?
Now that Remembrance Day is over, in only one day, stores & shops are in full on swing for Christmas. McDonalds started issuing their holiday cups, which are 3 different designs & exclusive for Canada. McDonalds in the US of A has a different pattern(s). I am not a Starbucks fan so I have never got caught up in their red cup program. Canada's other iconic shop; Tim Horton's will have 3 holiday designs released this week, along with the traditional chocolate donut covered with candy cane sprinkles. Now this is a tradition I can get behind & if I do too often, I will have quite the behind!
In this week's church service, the visiting minister told us that we are either goats or sheep. I have absolutely no idea what those metaphorical references were about, so while I ponder which I am, I hope everyone has a wonderful & warm week ahead.
