Well its a good evening post for me today. Did my short change last night and into this morning. No time to get on the computer or even sit down until just a short time ago. Off to catch up on all the happenings around here...

Morning all! Been a lazy one for me so far. Thinking about doing stuff, but only managing to actually get on the computer and look out the window and shiver!

Good evening...finally home. Had to go out to Costco for a medication run earlier, what a mad house. I was amazed by all the folks out shopping on a Wednesday.

Mrs K and I are taking a stay-at-home vacation day. I woke up this morning, checked the outdoor thermometer and saw -9º F (-30 wind chill here, too, Alix), and promptly got back into bed. Not quite as cold as you, but cold enough. Even the dogs wouldn't go out.

Later this morning, I am pressing 350 pounds of pinot noir I've had fermenting in the basement for the last 10 days.

After that, I'm making a big batch of stew and maybe start some bread dough going.

Tonight after dinner, we'll probably go out and have a couple drinks with some friends. I'm thinking something warm, like a Tom & Jerry, might be good.

That's my day. Pretty relaxing, huh?

The wind was blowing hard all night. Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning, looked outside and saw a "Welcome to Edmonton" sign out in the yard...

Good morning! Just being lazy and having coffee before I finish decorating the tree. It's really cold here, but the wind has died down, no white caps on the bay today as evidenced by this photo taken from my bedroom window earlier this morning, lots of glorious sunshine! Have a great day everyone!

Well did it blow me south or you north? Either way, I have a pot of soup simmering and the Keurig is ready. Come on over for lunch!

Afternoon all! Still frosty here (windchills of -41!) and I'm off to work in an hour. Yuck.

Have you never been shopping the day before a holiday? Try to get near the meat counter on July 3rd.
