Wow, this week seemed long! My son said last night "I can't believe it's Friday tomorrow already. It seems like yesterday was Monday." And to that I said, "I can't believe it's finally Friday tomorrow. It seems like Monday was 3 weeks ago.". Hmph. I guess High School teenage life is more exciting than working mom life. Who knew?!?

Here are my 5 randoms for the week:

1: They are almost done with our roof. Maybe that's why it seems like the week was long. They were here early Monday morning to get started & they are still here. Really, our house isn't that big!

2: I was excited when I filled my gas tank yesterday for $2.99 a gallon! But, my excitement was short lived when I drove by that same gas station today & it was up to $3.06. It's going back up already? I hardly had time to enjoy it....

3: My hubby got two of these on his way home from hunting Up North on Sunday. There's a gas station about 45 minutes from our house that has an AMAZING bakery. A gas station! Crazy!

Yep, that's a regular size fork, folks. This sucker weights almost 2 pounds! And he bought TWO! What was he thinking? And are they gone? Well of course they are, do you not know me at all? 

4: I have a few friends that are DONE with their Christmas shopping! That annoys me. Even though Christmas music is playing in the stores, & the decorations are all out, I am NOT in the mood to Christmas shop. Can we at least wait until the turkey is stuffed? 

5: Our 18 year old cat still has some frisk left in him. Here he is enjoying his drugs catnip:

and one more, showing the end result of all that action:

Don't worry, Elwood - I can't party like I used to either. 

Hope you all had a fantastic week! If you blog about it, link up with High Five for Friday & Random 5 Friday

Your kitty is doing good for being 18--I had one that lived to be 17...still miss him.

Yum - that cake thingy looks amazing! Cheer up - we pay the equivalent of $6.00 a gallon here - it's soooooo expensive - and it always goes up just before the school holidays or a public holiday. Elwood looks amazing - love all the photos of him. My cat loves catnip too. I have some in a little spray bottle and when I spray it on Ruby's scratching post, she goes nuts for it LOL!

Should I say that I have almost finished my Christmas shopping? I do most of it online as I am a fulltime Carer and haven't got time to run around to different shops to then find that I can't get the book or CD I want. So much quicker and easier for me. I do support my local shopping centres but if I can't get what I need locally, I shop online as travelling any distance and because my loved one can't walk all over a large shopping centre because it exhausts them, just becomes a stress. Plus we have to use disabled access as well and there are never enough disabled car parking spots. Yep, way easier to shop online if I can't get it locally.

Have a great week Michelle :-)

I've been putting away things for Christmas gifts during the year -- not sure who is getting what, but it's the thought that counts, right?

That's one gigantic pastry!

Love the shots of Elwood and his drug of choice. :)
