Hi all,  It has cooled down for while,  still about 32c  but you can outside and do things.   We are still painting the outside of the house. ( The Never ending Story )  So was able to do some house painting, the wind has turned from inland and is coming from the sea   ( Bass Straight )  Today is warmer but not too hot was able to do a little gardening, Must get better organized so I work in the morning and be inside in the afternoons.

That snow is heading up my way, what my local weather shows. City still hasn't sanded/graveled/ or salted in front on the 4 corners.

Tracked the package and it said it was delivered so called post office, that ------ Sub postsl woman delivered it somewhere else or someone stole it. I got a call from the power company one day saying my bill was sent back to them saying there was no such address. GRRRRR! Postoffice person just called back to say the dilivery woman isn't back yet and she needs to leave so won't know anything on there end til Mon. Hopefully who ever she delivered it to will bring it to me. But the snow is still around so won't hold my breath.

I stayed in after I finished what I could in making better for people parking if any beside curb. City still has not come with sand/salt on my corner. Looks very slick. Does slow some driver's down though. I just don't want another unwanted trespass by another vehicle.

Went into Grow Organic and got 5 pks of seed. They are the only ones I found that have the organic purple pole beans for only $2.99. It said free shipping today but when I tried w/2pks it wouldn't work so I called she said that was on orders over $100 but if I buy 5 $2.99 pks I get free shipping otherwise it was $4.99 shipping. grrr So I got some golden turnips, red mustard, Vadillia onion, and already forgot the other, Senior moment.

Still snowing and no mail. Spending my day being a vegetable.

Coal, oil, gas, diesel, electric is what Carbon Tax is put on as of Jan. 1st 2017 . It is 115.9 for regular gas for van, higher other places in Alberta.

I cleared along the curb so if anyone parks they can open their door and get out fine. Below curb I made as smooth as possible just in case Chinook comes and causes a big meltdown then water has straight to the corner drain. Not doing curb out front, could get hit, very slick and close calls if I had been working on front curb.

I hope no more snow for awhile.

Snowing here again, started at noon like they predicted. Hopefully not til Wed and not at the rate it is coming down, claiming 3-7". I tried to bring in some bags of potting soil but they are frozen to the wheelbarrel. Need to put the things I started indoors into bigger containers and move to the porch under lights. Did get a run at the driveway and got the car back into the garage a little bit ago was hoping the mail was here when I did it. Expecting playing cards w/edible weeds/wild plants on them and a mosquito net for my head.

Another cold morning at -1 degree. I turned the heater on in the well house so it wouldn't freeze. Nancy what kind of Carbon are you talking about? Keryn did the shade cloth work for you? I have been using double shade cloth in a spot in my garden bed for tomatoes to keep the heat down so the  tomatoes will blossom and it has worked for several years now but I have to plant the tomatoes some where in another bed this year to give the soil a rest from the tomatoes. I bought a lot of buck wheat seed to plant so this is what I'm planting this year to get nitrogen back in the soil.
