Snow, Baking, and Neighbours Oh My

If the is posted in the morning than our power hasn’t gone off, we haven’t froze to death, and weren’t buried in a snow drift!  Father winter has blown in with force these last couple of days and isn’t supposed to leave us until the weekend.  I really hope that the mountains are getting this snow too!

So when we woke up yesterday morning we really had only three options to get to work; take the bus, take the train, or take Car2Go.  We chose Car2Go!  Car2Go is a great car share system in our city.  Once you have a membership you can drive the cars anywhere you like, but you must park them in a home zone.  To find a car near you just use the Car2Go app or you can find one to reserve for a half hour.  The cost is $.35/min and you have free parking in the downtown core.  So this morning John and I carpooled into the city for a total of $3.50 which is about half of the cost of transit.  You can find out more about the system here.  Oh and I forgot to mention that they are little white and blue smart cars… so cute!

Well after work and eating a great dinner made by John (Portobello mushroom burgers) I got a little fidgety so decided to get my baking face on and this happened.

After I had just finished taking the last batch of cookies out of the oven our new neighbour dropped by with a welcome gift!photo 1

  1. I love that car idea! They have that in Seattle but it’s for bikes. I don’t know if there’s a car version yet. I wish I could get my baking face on… boo!

    • AHHH I would love if we had a “bike2go”! I could see that being really useful if it was raining/too cold/had an appointment in the morning but wanted to ride home in the afternoon! At least you have your decorating face on! I am lacking that right now haha

  2. Christine, i’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed my organic vanilla infused honey and cane sugar. Thanks for the link, much appreciated.
