RAK Round 2!!

It's that time again, I think...

Being so close to a border city, the American holiday always causes a stir.  Whether it's plans to cross the border for the awesome Black Friday deals (which I never do because crowds and I just do NOT mix.  Socially - yes.  Retail-based - no.) or reminding us of that Christmas is not that very far away, there always seems to be a feeling of anticipation in the air.

We feel it today - anticipation for Connor's Seal swim meet tomorrow in Leamington at the Frank T. Sherk Recreation complex!  Because it's a Seal qualifying meet, he will be swimming in all categories, and different lengths.  He's a bit nervous, because to qualify for the Seal Championships in April, he will need to have a "B" qualifying time - which is about 10-20 seconds faster than his last meets' times.  But because he's technically only a "Platinum" this year, which is a level below Seals, we have tried to instill in him that this is not about winning today - it's about experience.

He still wants to win. :)

In honour of the big day tomorrow, I'm going to be giving away a RAK!  However, my first RAK that was drawn a few weeks ago was unclaimed so I'm going to draw another winner:

Since there hasn't been much happening on the message boards, I am glad to see a post here to read! My favorite cartoon used to be Non Sequitor. I don't know if it is around any more, but I also don't ever really read the newspaper anymore, so don't get a chance to read the comics!

Do you make any homemade gifts for the holidays?  If so, what are they?

  4. I am making boxes of card sets this year...or at least I hope to. I have also made lots of baby gifts this past couple weeks - cute little canvases with their names on them. :) Not sure how helpful that is! LOL
