Cool pic. It is photoshopped but in a nice way.

I'm still at work but not actually working, I am hoping to get a turn at flying someone's indoor drone.

Being the 1st of December we opened the first door on the advent calendar this evening. They love advent calendars in france.
And my girl loves it

We had snow flakes in Toulouse this evening, a small shower of hail stones earlier on in the evening and rain and sleet and snow later on.
Its not sticking though.

I actually googled if it was a full moon this weekend because people are cratchedy! I am following along on the on-line meeting and people are having a tiff over the meaning of god. More than that, I have taken cranky calls today at work from my client's customers. Easy weekend for others to get you down.

I just wanted to pop in on the thread and say thank you to everyone! Support and welcoming has been amazing.

Busy weekend, hubby informs me he's working late, which kinda sucks, because I needed his muscles tonight LOL I have a huge Gala to put on tomorrow and for once, I have sidestepped all the usual self-inflicted hiccups, taken things head on and am happy - pink cloud? about my sobriety.

I am going to go home, hug my horses, get my work done, which includes cooking another 10lbs of meat LOL and stay positive!

I should add, I have one of the biggest challenges to date, I have to pick up the trailer of alcohol tonight. I am actually not worried, with the exception of the Bourbon, everything else is pretty low-brow, including 9 cases of Coors LOL

I joked to a gf today, I actually told her I quit drinking, she didn't know I drank, had never seen me with a drink, but I said, we get to the end of the night, they are not opening another case of that Coors, the bartenders can say we sold out, I don't want an empty case of that crap sitting around til spring, it's only good for trapping slugs! A pretentious alcoholic, the worst kind!

Have a great weekend everyone, I am going to try and pop in and read and comment!

I am making a pizza right now. All set to watch some tv and relax. I love being safe in my house with my cat buddies.

Evening, no Crazy Golf until 2018 Gilmer as it is getting a bit rowdy right now (understandably I guess) I ate out with some of the CG gang and had that awkward social moment of having to not divide the bill equally as I didn't have any (expensive-ish) wine.

Good luck at the gala MLH.

It's still pouring rain. I'm still going to the city. This event happens to be outside, so I'm not sure what to expect.

Black jacket or London Fog? NM, it's the LF, and scarf, boots, hat, umbrella. It might be a short trip.

Hi everyone. Just checking in. Happy and sober. I broke two of my toes during a drunken Karate demonstration Bim. I don't know the first thing about Karate but was drunk enough to think I could do it. Thank god I don't drink any more.

Made it home. Holy carolly, there were a lot of people out. The freeway was so packed on the way down that it took way too long to get there and I missed a lot of the fun - s'ok, the rain stopped, I had an eggnog latte and a scone and watched the hilarity and creative Seattle folks who put the event on every year for charity. Everyone was really nice and friendly and festive and my toe was fine in my Keens walking shoes with the super wide and high toe box.

Success...except I really should probably not have a latte at 7PM. I'll never get to sleep.

Maybe I'll knock on my neighbors' doors and fa la la la la them.

Maybe not.

Night W-Enders. No tipples tonight. Apparently Weekenders need to wear steel tipped shoes, though. MLD & Mish, thanks for the solidarity. And I broke a different toe a few years ago when I was drinking and stubbed it on the ottoman that was always in the same spot. I just didn't have the quick reflexes to avoid it that time.

Night.
