There was a combo memo/email received late Friday. One of our students that works at the clinic part time has decided to give up the position as it's her 4th & maybe final year at university, she wants to spend more focused time on her studies. I must admit I am not disappointed, JM is rather a difficult staff member for various reasons but of late it is primarily her lack of attention & focus on the job at hand which has lead to several errors. Previously The Boss has indicated he would like to dismiss her, but her resigning saves him the headache. I must admit, I was impressed & thankful that she did give us several weeks notice, so her last day is late December just before we shut down for a Christmas break.

The fur girls have been not very helpful while I was in the living room making some preparations for the soon Christmas decorating. In particular Sooty was up on everything in that room & knocked over a plant stand with pot (no plant in it). Thankfully she wasn't hurt & the pot did not break, but let me tell you I was not happy with her naughtiness.

Just a short 30 minutes later she was entertaining Mr Man & me with her antics in a rather too small box with a catnip heart.

This Sunday was a mixed bag of weather & for me a mixed bag of emotions. I talked to my best friend, who lives in Calgary, Alberta, for a short 2 hour conversation. I miss her terribly, I miss her with such an ache in my heart. She is my friend that is a safe harbour for my heart & soul.
Then at church on Sunday, one of the ladies told me she liked my beret (hat) she said she had one too but only wore it on days that her hair was unwashed & behaving badly. I was so taken back by this compliment that seemed to also smack me about the head.

Then to finish me for the day, we were running errands in the city closest to us & I found in one store the perfect birthday gift for one of my in town friends, who I am meeting for lunch on Tuesday. AJ is an ugly Christmas sweater & hot chocolate fanatic. When we got home, I unpacked my bags & saw that the gift was not in any of them. I called the store right away, yes they found it still sitting at the cash, so they have put aside for me to pick up, which means about 1 1/2 hours round trip to go fetch. Darn.

I just remind myself, that this to shall pass ...
Happy week ahead everyone & to my American friends Happy Thanksgiving this Thursday. Remember turkey is the only food you can gobble.
