you might think I'm crazy

So I have decided to take up the challenge and join NaBloPoMo. The idea behind National Blog Posting Month is to blog everyday for the entire month of November. I thought it might be a good kick in the pants as my blogging has been rather sporadic lately. But honestly, I've wanted to do it since before I was blogging. Elizabeth participated last year and did a fantastic job. Seeing her succeed in this challenge is what inspired me to start blogging in the first place. I've been looking forward to November since I started blogging, in hopes that NaBloPoMo would happen again.

So this first blog post of November comes to you from beautiful Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario. Huntsville is about 250 kms north of Toronto in Ontario's cottage country. Deerhurst is a gorgeous resort set on Peninsula Lake and surrounded by forest. It's pretty much perfect except for the fact that it is famous for launching Shania Twain's performance career. But we won't hold that against them.

Steve and I are here for a few days attending a conference. I didn't have to be here until this afternoon but since Steve had to be here for first thing this morning we drove up last night after work. I decided to take advantage of my morning off and hit the spa. Deerhurst has an Aveda spa that is in the midst of a renovation. Unfortunately, they don't have their full range of services available but I was able to get a facial and manicure. Both were excellent and the estheticians were so nice. There's nothing like a little bit of spa time to wind down.

Since my coworker won't be here for a few more hours I'm off to check out the hiking trail. And yes, I did bring my camera so be warned. There will be pictures.

I couldn't help it. They actually have a Shania page on their website. I actually shuddered when I saw it.

Hurrah for lots of blogging! Deerhurst looks lovely too. A great way to start the month :D

Must admit, I've started looking at house prices and jobs in Canada, for once I'm all done...Would struggle to find places like that around here.

Canada is an awesome place to live! There are parts of Canada that are very reasonable as far as housing and cost of living. Toronto and Vancouver are insane at the moment. As far as Toronto is concerned, you can still get a great place for a decent amount of money in the suburbs, if you don't mind the suburbs.
