"I love knitting on four needles and have found the perfect way to occupy myself with knitting mitts for the Coats for Kids Program in Peterborough ON. I can knit as many as I want and know they are going to good use"

I work fulltime in social services, enjoy spending time with friends, and living life in small town Ontario
I LOVE football...CFL,NFL..whatever. In the warm weather, I enjoy long walks with my standard poodle, Luke, but in the winter I tend to hibernate with a cup of coffee and good book. Year round, I really enjoy knitting anything fun and funky.
Anything but Country or Rap.
Favourite TV Shows
Monday Night Football, The Rick Mercer Report, Doc Zone
Hmm....not a big movie buff.
I'm a definite people-person. I enjoy nothing more than an evening with positive, fun-loving friends or family. I'm busy, active, and can't stand boredom, or brussel sprouts.

Hi Sandra - I did enjoy the weather. I was physical, starting with yoga (which I am just learning), long walk to the beach, walk the dogs and cut the lawn as well as cleaned some windows. Then I made caramel apples in phyllo pastry for the man I am dating as he mentioned that he loves caramel apples. It was a great day. For the days to come, I will be content to be cozy at home, sit in front of the fireplace and read lots. What about you?
I intend to put my house up for sale in the Spring and have to decide where to move to next. I love real estate so the shopping aspect will be fun.
Did I mention that I work in Social Services for Bruce County? I have a girlfriend who lives in Orangeville and we are having a girls' weekend there in mid November with 2 other girlfriends. We do this about 4 times a year. Lots of laughter, tears and wine! I am looking forward to making new friends here and glad that you are I have connected.
Looking forward to hearing from you again,
Hi Glenda. I'm not a cold-weather enthusiast either. I made the most of what summer we had by around the province to visit friends and relative, and now I am quite happy to stick close to home. Saturday was nice enough to put the final touches on my garden before winter. Yesterday I had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends.
I've been giving considerable thought to going to the Zoomer show. I understand that Wayne Harrigan and other Zoomer friends from the East Coast are planning on being there. It might be fun to make contact there.
Hi Sandra - Happy Thanks Giving - Enjoy the weekend - I am also preparing dinner for Sunday dinner but my daughter hosts Christmas Day now she has 2 children. Going to Florida for a week in November hoping to find sunshine. Glad to hear you had a busy but enjoyable summer - Ruth B.
"Hi Laura and all. We got caught in the power failure around 5:10 p.m. last evening. We just got power back around 4:00 p.m. today. I will have a look at some of the posts but will be unable to chat about them…"
