Welcome 2014!

I said goodbye to a great year (minus health issues) – hopefully 2014 will be just as good, if not better.  Mike and I had a quiet New Year’s Eve, stayed home to watch a movie and then some TV.  We sent a few pictures of my kitties to Mike’s father, who decided to art-erize some of the pics of Pinky (his favourite):
 

And this great Happy New Year one with Mya:

The only thing that bothered me a bit about this one is Pinky’s neck.  Kinda looks like she’s decapitated, rather than just a cute, floating head (I’m sure there’s a difference!)  I decided to fix it up:

Much better!

Since there’s really only one place open in the Niagara Region on New Years Day, we headed down to the Factory Outlets on Lundy’s Lane.  Our first stop was Timmy’s though.  Mike drooled a little when he noticed they got a couple new muffins, including this red velvet one:

Quite yummy!  Once we finished nomming, we headed over to the outlet mall.  We got there soon after it opened at noon, and the parking lot was already about half full.  We only spent a little over an hour and didn’t buy much at all, but it was a nice time.  Of course the best part was the chocolate store:

While leaving the outlets, I thought of Lapennaco’s Liquidation Centre, which was just around the corner.  It was open so we wandered around there for a bit.  I ended up getting two huge boxes of my Stevia sweetener (800 packets per box) for only $13 each.  Typically the 100 packet boxes are $7, so it was a sweet deal.  On the way back home from there, we noticed Target was open, so we headed there.  It was a rather productive day!

Looks like we’re having another spell of bad weather.  I’m glad I was able to get in one last flight for 2013 last Saturday.  I made fudge and brought some up to the tower at the St. Catharines airport and to the Flying Club.  My friend was working at the Flying Club in Welland that day, so I decided to make the arduous seven minute flight out there and drop some off to him:

I also met up with my mechanic and his son, so had a nice little chat with them.  Then it was back to Vyctor, although I really didn’t know where I was going to fly next.  On the way to my plane, I passed this sign:

Good to know!

Time for take off:

I decided to just fly around Niagara then over Lil Jan’s house.  I phoned her (blue tooth – hands free, no worries!) and she came outside to wave.  I think she’s really going to like this picture as her shadow makes her look really tall:

After that, I headed back to land at CYSN.  I decided to leave my Christmas decorations on my plane for a bit longer:

Until next year, little Vyctor:

Once back home, I figured it was time to take down my Christmas tree.  Fortunately, Mya helped tying the tree box together:

Meanwhile, Boo and Pinky just kept to themselves in the bedroom:

Little Abby didn’t come out until it was dinner time.  She sat on my lap while I ate:

So cute and googly.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s the end of the week already!  Sweet!

Today’s symptoms: Had a bad headache but my fatigue didn’t really start getting bad until a little later in the afternoon.  Can’t complain about that!
