    1996 Canadian nationals - Women’s free skate

    Thank you for all these videos! 😍 I'll definitely be watching 2010 Nationals later; I was there in person, but I don't think I ever watched the tv broadcast.

    I ordered some loose leaf tea a few weeks ago, and it arrived today. I am now enjoying an iced tea latte. :)

    I go for a quick walk around my neighbourhood every day, just to get some fresh air and a bit of exercise. Today my neighbour from down the street was out on his porch when I walked by, and we had a nice conversation (from an appropriate distance, of course - he stayed on his porch, and I was on...

    I thought the weather was supposed to be crappy today, but it's actually really nice out. And because my mechanic is only 1 km from my house, I could actually just walk home after dropping off my car this morning, instead of needing BF or a co-worker to drive me to our office on the other side...

    BF's mom did a drive-by drop-off of some potted plants for our front garden. She's really good at gardening, and I'm really not, so I think she just doesn't trust me to grow anything myself. It works out in my favour though. :lol: Plus we planted some hydrangeas last year and I was afraid they...

    We had a "social hour" on zoom for our team at work today. One co-worker's dog popped up into her video; I laughed and said that any meeting that includes a cat or a dog is the highlight of my day. Five other people immediately stood up, and about 30 seconds later they each came back with a pet...

    My friend gave her labradoodle a mohawk. He looks amazing. :lol: So today I guess I'm grateful for photos of Darwin the dog, and his ridiculous haircut.

    I'm grateful for our daily office trivia game. We do it over zoom, and some people get their spouses and kids to play too. It's fun to see everyone's families, and it can be hilarious to see how some of the kids get really into it. Every quiz has a different theme. Today's theme was Earth Day...

    I'm grateful for chocolate. :lol: I keep a sekret stash in my desk at work, but so far haven't really had anything in my workspace at home. Yesterday I found an unopened bar of dark chocolate in the cupboard, so now it's sitting here on my desk and I have enjoyed a few squares. BF also always...

    I'm grateful for video conferencing, even though normally it makes me feel really awkward, and I hate having to see myself in the corner of the screen. I had a "lunch date" with some friends from work, and we talked about all the silly nonsense things that we would have talked about if we were...

    I'm grateful for my co-workers. I mentioned that I like animals (of course, most of them knew that already :) ), so now everyone is sharing pictures of their pets in our "work from home" Slack channel, and I have lots of adorable animals to look at.

    I'm grateful for this thread. :) I've been kind of low-key avoiding this section of the forum because I don't want to overdose on all the negative news, but this really brought a smile to my face today. FSU is the best. ❤

    Is it just my imagination, or do we not have nearly as many costumes these days that look like they got caught in a paper shredder? I kind of miss it. :shuffle:
