Just  read something about my serious condition, DVT. Also watched a movie online: The Vitamin Movie.  I found I slacked off vitamins after my parents passed away, E,C,D Omega-3, Niacin mentioned. I am relaxing after doing all the inner and public sidewalks of snow. Maybe I should look into curling. Blocked two more spots bunnies were coming in, just front gate would be only entry. People here turn their leaf blowers into hand held snowblowers. I like Summer heat that can be controlled like in Australia. Person at  public library nearby has asked if I want to do a show and tell of my 3 trips to Australia, just stills, 1981, 1989 and 1999 was over there and in Sydney and area most of the time. Must go stretch a little.

Nancy -29c   geez, I think 0c is freezing. Never been in that sort of cold and cannot even imagine how cold it is.   I am hot blooded so it might suit me better than the heat.

I was pretty sick last winter, bad IBS and bleeding from the bowel.

CT scan showed that I have diverticulitis, changed my diet and doing a lot better.  No corn, No seeds or whole grains, No nuts.  Nothing that will get stuck in pockets or holes in the intestine and fester.  

Have a regular dose of  natural antibiotics.  

Always have bread or rice or potatoes or pasta with the meal to bind and hold the digested food together as it moves through the intestine.  

Stay away from acid foods and drink.  A small piece of fruit a day is plenty of acid.   

Simple changes and I am feeling a lot better.   I do miss corn, but you can use creamed corn for the taste.

William from what I know about wire grass it comes with the water supply, grows during the summer months.  After the snow melts, see if you have any and dig  it up  early before it gets a hold on.  Raised beds are easier in older age to manage, if you have someone to help you to set it up.

Supposed to start snowing here tonight at midnight but not much. I got to thinking again and wondered if I bought some livestock water tanks and used them for my gardening. Then I wouldn't have the bermuda grass to worry about.

Put scrap boards where bunny getting in. Only one other area might get in. Temperature tonight could be -29C windchill, brrrrr!

No sales of items for sale today. Small items cause the clutter.

Cleared sidewalks with my construction broom, not bar broom. Did a laundry and read morning paper.

I might have volunteer job or maybe a pay job at my public library nearby, show and tell of 3 trips to Australia,10 years in between.

I seem to getting my appetite back. Cousin suggested toast so I tried that. Going to keep on trying to post some photos.

Keryn me either I love my central air I don't like being cold or melting. I do miss getting to go pick from the garden right now. Finally got out of here to town for food and water. Got a good run so made it back up the driveway. Check out this pic, every morning a cat walks down the sidewalk but yesterday there was a foot of snow blown up on it so cat took a different route. I had to dig my way out to the garage. I got the car out to go to work but the ladies said don't come. So I tried to put the car back in the garage and it got stuck in front of it. Just kept spinning on the ice finally got it back over by the sidewalk.

Wow Vicky your snow photos are great.

Its a bit hard for me to feel how cold it is for you when I,m hiding inside from 40c heat and the air con on.  LOL only one thing in common we are both hiding inside and no gardening being done. 

I will have to go to the supermarket later. Cars have aircons, supermarkets have aircons  all blowing more hot air out, but what can done about it. 

I really think that if everyone turned off their aircons the planet would be cooler. But I,m not going to be the only one who does it.

Vicky, so you got snow. Had a dusting here overnight here. I hope to get my van started and head to newspaper to place ads. Found another item to place. If it is $25 or under each ad is free.

Where is Tri-Cities? I have been along I-5 but that has not since 1983 to Burien.

My friend Pearl has same problem with her driveway, long too.

Hope you can get out.

When I woke up at 4:30 this morning the snow was going sideways not falling down due to the horrible wind. Couldn't get a good pic of it.
