Lawn mowing season :(

Lawn mowing season is here again...

It was three weeks overdue. On some spots it was almost 10inch high. On the last weekend of April these spots were already high enough to be mowed. This is unheard of for me, mowing the lawn in April. So I waited until I had no choice but to do it... lol

We also bought the annual flowers for our backyard. Oddly enough the least expensive place had the best selection and quality. :-) The weather channel says to wait until next weekend to plant the flowers. There is a small risk of freezing this week. But the long term prevision seems to show that summer will begin next weekend.

Still not sure where this blog is going, so I don't know what I am going to write about next...

I am not even sure of how long I will be able to keep posting...rofl...

Cirque du Soleil's Ovo

Last wednesday, i saw Ovo, the brand new show from Cirque du Soleil. The Big Top was setup in Montreal's old port. It was a sunny but cool day

As for the show, the performances were simply awesome. The action is in a world of insects. The costumes were stunning with bright colors. Since we were not allowed to take pictures inside, you'll have to go see them on the Cirque's website.

The numbers i loved the most were the foot jugglers, the "couple on the rope" and the slack rope. The trampoline acrobats were also very exciting to watch at the end, bringing us in a big party finale!
Loved the show, go see it. I wish it comes to a town near you!!

OMG - What should I talk about?

Hmm, what sould I talk about in my blog?

My first language is french, so I will do my best to write in english. I also know a little italian.

I am not used to writing. I never held a diary... I will try to talk a little about JGoof.

He was born in December 2006, somewhere during the Christmas holidays. He came to life in Disney's Virtual Magic Kingdom (VMK).

Although VMK's doors closed in May 2008. For me, only the doors between VMK and the real world were closed. In my heart, JGoof and his friends continue to live in VMK, it's just that this world is not accessible anymore for us.

Before I left VMK for the last time, I made sure to put teleporters in between most of his rooms and his friends' rooms too. That way they will be able to visit each other easily... His closest friends are RoseBonbon, PincesseMafalda, MickeyIsMyPal, Rajah, StitchFanPrincess and PrincesseMinnie.

After VMK was closed, i started looking for a new online game. Seems I was hooked to these games now... I tried Gaia. I named my gaian buddy Dagoof, since for me JGoof was staying in VMK.

Then in June 2008, I enlisted in a beta test for a new game: Ravenwood School of Magic Arts, I believe that's what it was called at the time. And now, this game is known as Wizard101. I have been hooked on that game since then. I haven't touch my Wii

I decided to take the name JGoof again, since I think i found a game worthy of his name.

I don't know where this blogging thing will bring me. Not sure which direction I will take, but anyhow, this is blog post #1 !!

CYA later!!
