What To Do this Weekend ... I mean, besides watch hockey ;-)

To be honest, I pondered whether you would all even read a What to do This Weekend post this week..... because, you're all gonna be house-bound getting your fix of NHL Hockey for the first time this Season, yes? I thought so. The plans are big in our house... kids have negotiated the late night, snacks are planned, sleepovers arranged so as to avoid being out of the house Saturday night! We are even making a day of it with a pre-Game visit to Maverick's downtown! Not to mention the bets on the game or the street hockey playoffs ;-)

Not a hockey fan? Well, we are due for a wee bit of snow in the next couple of days... not too much, just enough to freshen up the terrain again and make it pleasant for more sledding or snowshoeing... both of which will be on my list for the near future as the winters seem short the last few years and I don't want to miss out!

A stroll through Bowring Park might be in order as well.... I LOVE feeding the ducks in winter!

And, another option: A new movie program started at the GEO Centre on January 10th! While I am sad to see The Gruffalo's Child go, I am excited at having some new options! Their line up now includes a movie about bats, one about the deep ocean and an animated one about dinosaurs. For complete schedule and movie synopsis, check here.

There is also a new exhibit at The Rooms this week: Wind-Ships: Cargo Vessels in the Last Days of Sail. Featuring paintings of ships from days gone by, it will be of particular interest if you have a boat or transport obsessed little one ;-)
