Gord got me this ring for my birthday, and it's so pretty. It's nice every so often to get something that has no practical use. Other than bills and groceries, the only real indulgences I have are books and movies, and I don't consider those luxuries, they're brain food.
I also heard from an old friend in Calgary that I'd kind of lost touch with, and she is having a concert for a friend of hers, Carrie Hryniw, and you can listen to her music here.
I don't really get homesick, but I am often peoplesick. It's not as gross as it sounds.
