I too have not been well since yesterday. Tonight going to get real cold and Sunday too. Then next week some sort of warm temperatures, Chinook weather.

Have to remember medicine from Naturopath doctor.

Still spreading the used coffee grounds once a week on lawn area.

An other dusting of snow this morning. I finally got out yesterday and unzipped the shelf greenhouse covers. Things are still growing in there. Bugs are in the herbs on the porch. Greens planted before the new moon are up. Feeling sicky all week grrrrrrr.

My laptop is dying, maybe last 3 months more. Going to have sort of warmer weather here, a chance to get  finished getting electric over the public sidewalk to van to keep it running if temperatures dip again. Worker putting stress on me, have my share. I think made mistake getting a over year old cat. I am a dog person for many years, even before 1980's. The Canadian dollar dipped again, so way better for you and others to come shop here in Canada.

Warming up here supposed to hit 40 a couple of times this week. Mud everywhere from melting snow. Yesterday was the new moon if you didn't get your above ground growers planted do it soon.

I will do next week, have a dump of snow to deal with and hope van starts. I also have flu coming on. I tried getting help to clear snow because of my lung/heart condition. I don't have cash on me either. Wednesday picked up what was going to recycle that would be great as something to plant some veggies. Was for family size pop bottles.

Nancy, here's a # for Canada for Family Search which is free & has a live chat. They are the largest archives & software in the world--will do searches of records automatically whenever you enter a name: 1-866-406-1830   Also have fan charts etc

Nancy, people who are into family history are so wild about it that any number you call will put you onto a person closer to you if they are too far for a visit. Especially the Society or church people. Doesn't matter if the # is one in the states or Canada to start with because they will redirect till you get what you want. Talking is the main thing to get started (before garden season comes around again). They will be excited for you & your old photos. . .

Not sure if we will get any snow. Just as long as not a dump of snow or freezing rain. My wild rabbit is back. it knows no guest dog now. I guess an in day whatever except when I go to nearby cafe for a green tea and a yummy nibble from baking.

It warmed up enough to go to town finally.Got a couple packs of organic seed. I've gone thru 3 seed catalogs and marked my wish list.

That is heading up through South BC and heading to Calgary, hope it bypasses Medicine Hat, AB. Got dead TV in van. Spoiling my adopted cat, but whatever her life was before rescue I hope to have her have a better life. Got to clean litter box. Well don't have to go out clean dog poop. I am still emptying full bucket used coffee all over yard. My wild rabbit is back, guest dog gone.
