Buddy and I are currently locked up in the office as there is a contractor in my kitchen installing tile backsplash. It takes quite a lot of time as we were warned by the gentleman who recommended this contractor that he is very precise and does great work but prefers to do it slowly. He doesn't cost any more for the time it takes him so we are good with that. Hubby is away on business so I have locked us away to try and get most of our Corporate year end paperwork done.
The picture above is from one of the places we walk the dog, the Courtenay air park. It is right next to a little small aircraft runway and when we were walking Buddy on Friday an aircraft landed with his wheels about 3 feet above our head. A bit scary considering that as recently as the fall someone had mechanical issues at this runway and ended up crashing into the building that houses my dog's vet. No one was hurt thankfully. Beautiful setting for a walk though and totally worth the short drive it takes to get there.
In addition to getting some work done I have been rearranging hotels for our April trip to Spain. Due to a crappy exchange rate things will be a little more expensive but I did manage to lock in one hotel at over $100 CAD less over 3 nights which helps pay for other things. 2.5 months to go and I am starting to get excited! We are flying into Malaga for 3 nights, 3 nights at Cordoba and then 4 nights in Madrid where we fly home from. Originally it had been planned as a 9 night trip but due to a horrible airline schedule change we ended up with 10 nights and a better connection.
Based on the condition that my kitchen is in for the next couple of days my meals consist of whatever can be prepared in 90 seconds or less. Last night it was chili out of a can. Tonight it might be cereal. Tomorrow is Mom's 72nd birthday so I am taking her out to supper to our favorite Greek restaurant which we are both looking forward to. If you eat out and spend the money it better taste good and this particular restaurant has never disappointed us.

That is all that is shaking in my world, both dog and I are a bit bored (accounting zzzzz) and tired of being cooped up but based on the lousy weather outside (rain rain and more rain) likely it is the best place to be. At least we are warm. What's the weather like in your little part of the world?
