I usually spend Sunday morning getting caught up on all of your posts - this usually takes 2-3 hours. Today it didn't.  Know why?  Because so many of you have been feeling "under the weather" and haven't been posting!! There are some extreme germs making the rounds so build up your immune systems everyone! 

Because - I MISS YOU!!

Everyone that IS posting seems to be really glad to see the back end of September, me included. September is always tough around here and then there's Christmas just around the corner! Glad I've been saving for Christmas/birthdays all year long - can't believe how great that's been to be able to pay for gifts out of my gift budget line instead of withdrawing from long term savings. 

I have updated my financial goals in my sidebar (way down) though I didn't do too well in choosing the bar colours. Oh well, that's a goal for October! Yesterday I did the grocery rounds and overspent a wee bit. But that's ok because the quinoa I spent $17 on will last a LONG time and the turkey I bought at .88/lb is for next weekend - yes Canadian Thanksgiving is next weekend already!! And I'm prepared!

Today it's only 4c outside so I am wrapped up in afghans so I don't have to turn on the furnace. But the great news is that I won!! the $35.00 Novica gift certificate that Judy was giving away!!  Thanks Judy!! I'll post a pic of my gift when I receive it from Novica!! It's definitely going to be something to keep me warm and lift my spirits:)

So my friends, please get well soon! I am doing quite a bit better - the oil of oregano seems to be doing its thing. Yesterday I woke up congested but today NO CONGESTION AT ALL!!

It seems like everyone is sick right now. All my friends are sick also, I hope I don't get sick!

Glad you are feeling better. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it seems we are both prepared.
Do you make any special deserts for the occasions?
I'm all set for the Pumpkin and apple pies to be made.

So wait am I invited to Thanksgiving? I have a passport so I think I can get over the boarder and its probably only like a 9 hour drive from Philly.

I can't wait to see the pic of you with the wrap!!!

Congratulations Jane! so glad to hear you won a Novica gift certificate. They really do have amazing stuff and I'm sure you'll love your new shawl. Lots of people sick these days around my office but so far I've avoided it. Glad to hear you're feeling better.

Glad you're not getting sick. You threw it off!

Just so you don't worry: No one is sick here (we're all better.) We were away at the beach for the weekend! I'll make a post soon. Had to catch up on what YOU and everyone else is doing first! :o)

I noticed that posting is way down, I just thought that people are busy or over whelmed with September. We also have a really cruel bug going around here, I have been trying to avoid it!

Hi Jane!
Thanks so much for your kind comment! I've missed you too! It was a bad week, and I'm still a bit under the weather. I'm hoping that it'll turn around soon so I can enjoy the fall season.

Glad you are feeling better too!!
