Frost on ground here. The children of my ancestor's many back when Mayflower arrived at Plymouth Rock.

Cable company cannot seem to get it right, looks like they are putting new cable where old one that was damaged same place, also blocked my other side door from Utility room to outside so if I need something like dog kennel I cannot get it out and tripping over cable at back of house too.

William , how far back have you gotten with Ancestry? I too am working on mine with my cousin. He found a Great uncle and Great Aunt were missed so have to do chart over.

Just got a DVD from PBS and plush Audobon turkey that makes sound like a turkey. The DVD is from series, "American Experience", Pilgrims. My anscestor is mentioned. He was a nasty soldier too I found out. It is awful in Alberta, many people unemployed and either moving East or over the border for work.

Have not heard from you for awhile. Wondering what you were up too. Still brown/green here and I hope it stays that way and have rain only. Had some gusty wind today and sun tried to come out. These people cable hires, have no brains. Blocked my door to Utility room so when I need dog kennel won't able to get it out and also putting spray lines same place where damaged cable was. Had  mouse or two but dealt with them. Looking at getting a good  mouser cat and heeler dog, just hate being put on waiting list. I need a furry friend companion or two. Cannot take parrots for a walk. Doing inside things except still spreading the used coffee grounds from cafe down the way.

Windy & rainy here lately. My boxed winter garden is still alive under the little green houses. The rain filled up the top of the big one and raised it up a ways. So I was out bailing water to keep it from getting ruined. The cover is brand new too dang it! Been busy moving things to clean out the house so CAC can come do some insulating. Moved a bunch of boxes of jars to the attic from the basement and the guy told me I had to take everything out of the attic too. GRRRRRRR!

Deer and rabbits deposited manure into my gardens and lawn. Still to pull last of veggies and put away to compost. What would happen if I just left it in garden to decompose over winter, pea plants I mean?

I'm still not home helping lady that just came home from rehab and back surgery. Busy with that all day so on her puter. Dale did bring up my 50+ yr old cow poo pile to the soon to be veg garden area the other day. Really need to quit spending my $ on other jobs and get some chicken wire and finish cutting the boards. Gonna be below freezing all week occording to the weather lady tonight so really need to figure out a way to cover my boxes w/food in them also.

Got all my garden beds cleaned out and ready  to lay down netting to keep cats out. Wow did I get a stack of compost to make it out of from all the toms and peppers and cuks, it filled up both bins pretty much. Windy and cold out today so I didn't get any thing done out side. I did string up some hot peppers that was the small ones left on the plants got 2 strings full. Have thanksgiving dinner at church tonight so talk later.

It was horrible here too Vicky. Just spread another bucket from cafe down the way of used coffee grounds on gardens.

I have everything that were most used on laptop back yesterday. I made sure you  were updated on which email to use etc.

Took sign down, for home, someone was trying compromise and put it with his ad making like it is his house, pulled ad off local Kijiji too.

Blue skies but chilly out even with winter coat.

Wind here blew some patio chairs  around and almost the table. Dropped off more modern resumes' at 3 job possibilities yesterday. I would want to start part time to get the feel of any job.

Have only 1 houseplant, others perished one way or another, so my rescue Pothos all I got now.
