In another section of the Festival Of Trees, they have a gingerbread house contest between local media outlets! Also, after seeing all those drool triggering delights, they have a booth set up that sells gingerbread cookies. I actually had no trouble resisting these as it turned out they were the crunchy store bought ones you get in bulk. Nothing beats home made, soft, chewy, spicy gingerbread cookies :P They used to sell those cute little pfeffernusse (home made) cookies too, but no more I guess.
A neat First Nation theme:
Love the horse here:
This looks like chocolate!
Neat figures inside the house!
I enjoyed my day off, getting in 190 minutes of exercise, speedwalked to the club and back to finish up something, then came back and hit the data entry. I finished the big job and now I have two reports left to sum everything up and also to make sure I thank everyone who volunteered for the club. This is very tough because I give my report after the President and he thanks everyone first, stealing the thunder so to speak.
I also have to be prepared to hand out awards this Monday at our Christmas luncheon. The lady who prints them up leaves them at the club in the last minute for me to cut them out and attach the free plays with paper clips to the certificates. People who win bridge club championships get certificates with a free play award to a game. I photograph everyone, but do get frustrated when most of the people getting awards aren't there and I end up taking a picture of one person from a team of four for example.
The cold, stormy weather continues, and I am missing a great photo opportunity. My Mom was telling me about the wier completely disappearing under high water and ice and that people are taking pictures of it like crazy as its never been that high ever, looks just like a lake instead of a river!
Tomorrow is very busy. Two appointments in the morning, one I have to walk quite a ways to and will cut it close getting back to the club in time for the game. I have a game in the STaC with my mentor. Which is a special tournament game in which we earn silver points. Not that I need any anymore.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone!
