Tagged - 4 Things

Well, it's a miserable day in Toronto today - snow, rain, cold, windy and very, very grey. This picture is a little moment in our garden from this winter. The tree cracks me up. It's so small that last year we had tulips that were taller! And beside it is my little clay gnome that I've had since I was in grade 8. He's got such a happy and peaceful smile. I used to take him to my exams with me and sit him on my desk. His base has gotten a bit broken, but I figure when he's dug right into the soil, he looks as good as new. He makes me laugh just peaking out of the snow like that!

Today on top of the dreadful weather, we spent some of the day working on our financial and tax situation. How much fun is that? Well, let's just say I am thrilled to bits to have the distraction of being tagged by Meg. And I am tagging Suzie once she's moved, and Shannon and anyone else who would like to participate - you're it!
