We went to Applebees for dinner tonight. I had the asiago chicken, and Mark had a trio sampler with riblets, shrimp, and a really yummy wrap. After dinner, we saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I wanted to take a picture of the poster in the theatre, but they wouldn't let me since it's copyrighted.

Yesterday we surprised Mark's Aunty Anna with a birthday party. It was awesome.
I took this picture of Mark's mom Judy and Uncle Les preparing in the kitchen. It is very traditional for Mark's mom and aunts and uncles to be in the kitchen preparing for any event.

So, it's -20C here today (that's -4F for the Americans), and I had to stand outside for at least 20 minutes waiting for the bus after work. Thank God we get our car today! I don't want to do this again tomorrow. I don't mind the cold so much if I don't have to stand outside in it. It got down to -40 sometimes in BC, and I lived through it. Maybe I'm also getting old. I've heard your cold tolerance goes down when you age.

Tried to get my Saskatchewan driver's license today. I'd been in the office before and didn't have the correct documentation to prove that I live here now. Also, my BC driver's license expired in January and they didn't like that it's not current. However, they said I can have my MIL or FIL sign for me attesting that I am who I say I am or something. So today, I had the paperwork proving I live here and FIL came with, and they said the form he has to sign must be faxed over from a head office that was already closed for the day. So frustrating!

Today we cleaned up the kitchen and did the dishes for the first time this week. It was getting rather necessary since our kitchen is so small we don't have room for piles of dirty dishes.
This is what it looked like after we finished. I didn't think to take a before pic.

No themes for the next week or so.
Today, I went to a walk-in clinic since I've been rather sick and missing work. The doctor says I have a virus, but didn't mention which virus it might be.
To get to the clinic, Mark's parents let us use their car. I took this picture from their back lane where some trucks were working on the sewers. I thought the steam clouds looked cool.

Since it is Sunday, and we are not working, we went to church. We decided to try the Ap (Regina Apostolic Church) today. It's a big church, which often makes me uncomfortable, but I felt right at home. We both really liked the service. Below is a picture of me dressed up for church.

This was a perfect theme, as our niece's birthday party was today. We went to a place called It's a Blast where they have an arcade, a kids play gym, and little private party rooms you can rent for 1/2 hour. We let the kids play for awhile, then had cake and presents in a private room, then let the kids play some more while the adults chatted.

Can't do the theme today, but I found this cool thing at work. I work at one of the Brick stores in Regina, and this was displayed on one of the tables. It's a fake plant in a glass vase with fake water in it. That's really some kind of gel or something like.

Theme: Count your blessings
The greatest blessing in my life is my husband Mark. Here he is doing one of his favourite things: playing the guitar. The guitar is also a blessing; we found it at a pawn shop for really cheap and it came with a really nice case for free.

I don't like Triscuits, so when I sent Mark to buy crackers and he came back with these I was disappointed until he pointed out the flavours (he also got Parmesan & Garlic). They are actually very good. I was pleasantly surprised.
Not doing the theme today 'cause I couldn't find any tricks. :P
Mark went to a restaurant here in Regina called Brewster's and these cool toothpicks were in the sandwiches so he brought them home to show me (I was at work when they went for lunch).
