I belong to a wonderful, hilarious, bizarre, and exclusive book club. There are four of us in this club, and while we had our first guest this month, I suspect that there are a limited number (4) of permanent spots. We read easy reads, and we usually only talk about the books in question for about 10 minutes. Which is fine, we have enough conversation to keep us going until midnight as it is. This past week, Linda entered a new decade, meaning that we now each represent a different decade. I think it's pretty awesome that we span 4 different decades and still connect the way that we do.

This is Liz. She's awesome. She makes me laugh more than most people. She has also been a synchronized swimmer. And has sat on a rooftop watching a city get bombed. She is an incredibly dedicated wife and mother, and has survived her eldest son's first year at university. She is passionate about the Royal Botanical Gardens, and is always thrilled (though perhaps apprehensive at times) about learning new things and skills. She has a figure skating nephew, and an aunt who worked at the Rockefeller building. She makes delicious muffins and gives delightful and thoughtful gifts. She is, in short, inspiring.

In nature, my favourite colour is whatever appears in the changing season (see: freshly fallen snow on green grass and crunchy leaves). To wear, my fave is black. I know, boring, but it's so hard to go wrong!

I had to clean up the play room downstairs yesterday because we had someone coming through to look at the place to rent in January. It's nice to have a clean room. Right now, I'm just sitting in a comfy chair, watching Rose follow Hendrik as he crawls around. It's nice to just sit and be quiet in the morning.

We in the vanOosten family love the changing seasons. And, every time we enter a new one, we are eager to get outside and enjoy it as much as we can! Sadly we don't get out as often as we would like, but we do make an effort.
|Hendrik, Izzy & I went to the RBG Arboretum this past weekend for Pumpkin Fest.|
|Brian and I have recently discovered the Albion Falls Bruce Trail section, which we really like. |
We've been out there a few times now in the past few weeks.
|Trees and leaves and colours and gorgeous weather = a great afternoon.|
