  1. When this all started, he was getting his 2 year molars...it was not a pleasant time. Some days are better than others, as with everyone. With _wolfbrother_ and I still working, he's still going to day care and playing with other kids. Hasn't really been out other than a few times but he's doing well. He grew out of his shoes so we had to get him new ones. He just turned 2 and is size 9 already. He's also in 2T/3T clothes and is already over 3 feet tall. I really shouldn't drink and type, this took much longer than it should have 😄 But I finally found a wine I like! Naked Grape Blue and Naked Grape Purple. They're summer wines and I haven't had any for some time so I'm really excited that they are back.
  2. *wraps herself into a burrito with the soft blanket and gratefully accepts the tea* So tired and stressed. Didn't think it was possible. But it's starting to get better. The bakery is considered an essential service so we've remained open. We're starting to get busy again, more than before all this started. The last few weeks I've been opening by myself which has been where most of my stress has come from but I got approval today to schedule more people in the morning. I'm very excited, 1) less stress for me, and 2) less stress for my staff since they're able to work more. Hopefully, I'll be able to have some more time where I can get caught up with everything. How's everyone else been? I hope everyone is healthy and safe!
  3. Congratulations on the new house Lily! I'm sorry it was such a roller coaster to get it though. *falls face first into a couch and groans* I'm just going to stay here for a bit
  4. If I've posted any of the designs/costumes I've made, it was probably my son's Halloween costume. Once I get the cloak finished, and attached to the wedding dress, I'll probably post it because I'm very proud of how it turned out.
  5. I'm around...kinda. I think with the show in development, hopefully we'll get some new people in
  6. Congratulations Lily! I'm so excited for you and your new house! Hello Lava! I'm sure I've met you before but I'm not quite sure. I have a bit of a tendency to disappear/appear at random due to work/family. Surprisingly I haven't been here more in the last few months since my son broke our television and I've been on my computer a lot, mostly for work though. I, like Lily, am a very compassionate person but I work in retail 😐 Not always the best combination. I was in school to be a psychologist however, I had a mental breakdown and have not gone back to school since. I love fashion design and costume design to the point that I made my son's Halloween costume this year and designed/made a cloak for one of my best friend's wedding this June. Music wise, I listen to pretty much anything but the only country I listen to is Shania Twain.
  7. At most 10. I know I have the 2002 Olympic Swimmer Barbie, Princess Rapunzel Barbie and Prince Charming Ken, Astronaut Barbie...those are the ones I can remember. They're in storage though, all still in their boxes.
  8. Lessa Nikia, Green Aes Sedai Anything peppermint really but my ultimate favourite is my grandmother's whipped shortbread cookies with candy cane pieces
  9. Hi Maera! Love your answers and you have some beautiful tattoos! 1. How did you find Dragonmount (what is your DM origin story!)? Shortly after my mom introduced me to the series (I was in high school and wanted something similar to Tolkien) I found DM and joined. Started reading the threads and was wholly confused so I decided not to get involved until I finished the books, that was in January of 2010. Fast forward 9 months when I had finished the series and rediscovered DM because I completely forgot I had joined it. I then joined practically every SG (or Club as they're called now) and was heavily involved (ie very active). I later found out my mom was also a part of DM way back when it first was launched. 2. What Country are you from? The Great White North, or Canada. 3. Who is your favourite WOT character and when did you first start reading the series? I think my favourite changes with each reading, currently being Nynaeve and I started the series January 2010. 4. What is your favourite book series outside of WOT? Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter. 5. What is your favourite fantasy universe outside of WOT? Book/film: Middle Earth Games: Thedas (Dragon Age) 6. What are your hobbies? Depends on how stressed I am. If I'm needing to think things through I cross stitch or sew, and if I'm annoyed/agitated I game, usually blowing things up via magic. 7. What is your favourite home cooked meal? Anything pasta based. The amount of carbs I eat is not helped by the fact I work in a bakery. 8. As a child, what did you 'want to be' when you grew up? A teacher. Parenting kinda counts right? 9. What makes you laugh the most? Myself...I'm kidding, I'm not funny. Usually my toddler or my husband, they're very good at cheering me up. 10. What do you think are the best and worst parts of your personality? I think I'm a very open minded person and very compassionate, however sometimes that can be a bad thing as well especially when I was growing up and people took advantage of that fact. 11. Do you Collect anything? I have quite a few collector Barbies from when I was growing up but I haven't contributed to it in many years. Does fabric count as a collection?
  10. I only have one bonded and that is my Warder and husband _wolfbrother_. I met him here when I had finished the books and had joined the Tower. I was actually on the Warder path but ended up switching to the AS path. Even though I knew I wanted him as my Warder, just like I knew I wanted to marry him when we met in person, a year and a half later after meeting on here, I still put quite a bit of thought into it. Most of it was overthinking but it was a highly emotional decision for us. I'm sorry to hear that your bondeds have been inactive Lily. *hugs* I can harass Thorkin to stop in if you like though.
  11. You can always check out our instagram account @cobslethbridge I post photos all the time! She's been having tons of appointments lately so hopefully something will start helping.
  12. Hello Maera! Welcome to the Green's! I myself am just stopping by quick. Not sure when I'll be in again as work is about to get crazy with the holidays coming here soon. Quick update: Been super stressed as our bakery manager has had some health tests come back and they don't look good. I can't quite talk about it but I'm hoping she'll be alright. With that happening, I've been promoted much sooner than anticipated. As my boss says, "It's a crisitunity" (crisis but an opportunity). But I am now on salary and with it comes all the paperwork. I feel like I'm the brain for the bakery because I'm the only one who can keeps things straight.
  13. Around. I have a cold mostly due to the huge winter storm this past week and now it's mostly melted. But, we're supposed to get more snow again by next weekend. Welcome to southern Alberta(Canada)! A place were we get a ton of snow and it's gone in a few days because of chinooks.
  14. Oh no, everyone is sick! I hope you ladies feel better in the coming days. *hugs*
  15. It's mostly gone now weather can't make up its mind. I love how Twitter and the Facebook WoT groups have all collectively lost their minds about the video that was posted yesterday. I'm glad I was home when I saw it. Started to hyperventilate when I watched it I was so excited.
  16. It was lovely really. I think we archers were able to keep up "activity" with our hangman games. *laughs* I've heard the opposite, that American beer is the worst. Given I'm not a beer drinker, more of a rum or whiskey kind of girl, so I don't really have an opinion.
  17. I'll be going through all the paperwork I need for them tomorrow. Was going to do it today but didn't end up going into work because we got over 2 feet of snow in the span of 36 hours. Digging my car out this morning was fun...
  18. *raises eyebrow at WF* May I ask why Canadian beer specifically? I'm not judging, the more people who drink our beer the better, I'm just curious
  19. Oh he loves to get into everything. We've kept the baby gate up in the kitchen to keep him out and we're going to have to get more for the bedrooms. He has figured out that he can reach the handles and can open them. The guards don't fit our handles because they are tiny and we can't switch them out. I'm kept quite busy with everything but I love it!
  20. Gladly! So the first one is a Holiday Artisan and Gift Expo and it lasts only for one day. It has a lot local vendors with everything they hand make. From clothes, toys, decor, baby stuff, food, etc. They also have people who represent Avon, Airborne, Mary Kay and that sort of thing. They've only had one home baker there in the past and it is going to be our first year there. My mom helps run this one and that's where most of my information comes from for it. I'm not sure how many to expect so we'll probably make too much and if we have anything left over, just take it back to the bakery to be sold there. It's on a Saturday so I'm expecting quite a few people. The other one is much bigger. It's at the same location, a few weeks later, and takes up the entire building instead of just one pavilion. It is also a Holiday and Gift Show and has not only local vendors but also businesses. The organizers try to keep it balanced so that not the same product isn't within close distance to each other. Last year I was able to be at that one for work and it was really busy. It takes place over 2 days and we pretty much sold out of everything both days. I didn't get a chance to wander around for that one to see what else was there but it has pretty much everything. There was a spot for Christmas skits to take place and there were carolers last year as well. It will be our third year this time around and we're going to go a bit insane on our social media posting to get more people aware of it as well. Probably going to have one of the bakers making more product for us and bring it to the show about midway through to keep us stocked up.
  21. You can't blame me for nothing! I don't recall who I have updated so you'll get it all. _wolfbrother_ and I had a little boy about a year and a half ago. He's taking after his father's height and is huge! He is only 18 months but fits 2T clothes, in fact we were asked if he was 3 or 4 years old. He loves to chase after our cats to give them hugs and attention. They mostly tolerate it and run away if they don't want him bothering them. His favourite chore is feeding them, to the point of going to the cabinet their food is kept every time we get home. I discovered that I'm a workaholic but I love my job so I don't mind one bit. Ownership of the bakery I work for changed last February and my new boss has put me in charge of doing the Christmas trade shows taking place in the city. Lots of paperwork, which I don't have time for currently, at least when I'm at work.
