Powell & Bonnell
I feel like that was a very Suzy-ish title. If you aren’t already reading Suzy’s blog you should be. It’s very different than mine but it’s super great.
It is currently 21 degrees here (Celsius, that is. For my American friends that’s 70 farenheit.) But I am in the Christmas mood and here’s why:
1. On Facebook all my Calgarian friends are saying what a winter wonderland they woke up to this morning. And even though the weather report says no snow here in Regina this week, I’ll bet snow’s on the way soon. We nearly always get Calgary’s weather a few days later… we’ll see.
2. Harvest is this close to being done. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) So close.
3. It was Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend, and that’s usually when I start itching to listen to Christmas tunes.
4. But here’s the big one: My November House & Home magazine is here! I love how early H&H comes. I feel like I’m extra cool for getting it before it’s on newsstands. (I know I’m not extra cool for that, but please people, I need all the cool I can get.) And this is one H&H I’ve been anticipating since July when I heard that…
Sarah’s farmhouse is being featured!!! Ah! Sarah Richardson+farmhouse+Christmas? Wowy Zowey. So pumped. As I read through it on Monday night my husband laughed at me (in a nice “I like you; you’re cute” kinda’ way) because he said I was grinning gleefully as I poured over every page. Ha ha. I’m such a nerd.
Tommy Smythe does the interview, which is fun, and being able to study some of the rooms more closely is great! (Especially the living room which felt like it was barely shown on the episode.)
And it’s a super duper good edition of H&H overall (Suzanne Dimma’s home is also featured, and a lovely all-white home), so if you don’t subscribe, I recommend picking it up!
Now. Which Christmas album should I listen to first? Hmmm… Maybe Chris Botti…
