-40 with wind chill... ummmm no thanks! - Afton

Hey all, I hope everyone is staying warm this week! If you are here in the Calgary area I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, might I say BBBBRRRRRRRRRR!!! Well it's no secret, winter has decided to show up after all, today it was -30 and with wind chill it took us down to a frigid -41, eepppp! So as for Janelle and I getting out to train, well that just didn't happen although we did hangout for a few hours, we did some shopping which most the time we stayed warm doing so. Let me bring you all up to speed on fundraising, I did my last batch of cookies which were yummy gingersnaps! I started baking at 5:00 pm on Sunday and finished up by about 12:30 am. I am very proud to announce that I have reached my fundraising goal as of today! My gingersnap, sales tipped me over the top by twenty dollars. With that being said I want to thank everyone who helped me reach that goal, whether it be from donating their time, talent, auction items, being a cookie buyer, handing over bottles or simply making a personal donation, thank you, thank you, thank you! That money will make a difference. As for Janelle, she is still needing all the help that you can give, please visit her fundraising page to make a personal donation, or drop a comment on different ways she may be able to do some fundraising. I now leave you with a picture from my baking extravaganza.


  1. WTF. I waited and waited for you girls tonight. Thanksfully I was wearing a padded bra to cover the girls. All jokes aside, congratulations Afton for reaching your goal!!! I'll give my empties to Janelle.

  2. HAHA, Afton text John; and he said "I'M GOING HOME!" SO if john says no go...then it MUST be cold!
