Up here, December can be an awful month, the days get really short and the temperature starts to plummet. Despite the forecast of a brutal winter up here, we appear to have been saved for the short term. It is almost balmy here, some days getting above zero, but the sun goes down near 4:30pm. It is easy to see why bears hibernate!
To avoid hibernation myself, I allowed my schedule to get packed full of activities, which has led to me not getting around to blogging in the last few weeks. I signed up for an unlimited month of yoga just up the road, keep my joints from freezing up! This probably saved me yesterday, we decided to hit up a community league and go curling for a couple hours. My friend Jakz came up from the US on Monday, it seemed appropriate to immediately grace him with a cup of Tim Horton's coffee and a broom. We had a blast, I will try to post some videos later into this post. Worth a laugh for sure! It was a bit nerve racking at first to start firing the stones into the house (ha...where can you do that??) while the league players watched on. No bones were broken and even without helmets, there were no concussions.
With regards to poker, I have another 12,099.54 VPPs to go to hit my last milestone bonus of 2011, then I will be focusing all my energy into tournament strategy and preparation for PCA. It's hard to believe that in 3 weeks I will be packed up and headed to the airport! Come join me!
Oh yes...Gibson won an 'elder pet' photo competition earlier in the month, getting him a bag of goodies. I decided that this year, I would get his picture taken with 'Santa/Grinch' for the first time, seeing as they were fundraising for a good cause! He was not impressed....
