Morning Mates, from a very dull, gray and cold Pictou County. We are at -11C this morning, or12F. It is still very icy from Friday night's rain, but the roads are clear and dry so going out it not a problem.
However, it looks like a good day to stay in and stay warm, and work on my jigsaw puzzle or read another book.
I am going to put hand warmers everywhere, this week, cuz, baby it's cold outside! Another storm coming on Wednedsay. The tv stations here, get carried away,and cancel all the morning programs,and give you a snowflake by snowflake, play by play..One station, actually canceled programing, all day!! &^%&*E$Y%#.
I am out for food shopping today,and home again home again, jiggity jig.. The diaper cake was a big success at the shower yesterday...I used up material I had from another cake ,all pastels, and, I hid some goodies inside..wait till they go and open it
Make it a good one.
Trip, with her book & tea!

Minus 20 C AGAIN in the Kawartha Lakes. Bah Humbug I plan on doing some serious packing today-we leave Thursday. I'm glad we're flying this time but packing within the guidelines of the airline is certainly a challenge!
Have a great day everyone. Jackie

...and a good, good morning to all from the once and awhile poster....
Trip, if it's any comfort, we here in Connecticut are cold also....not sure of the exact temp, but around 10 F....I just know when I walked out the front door and got the paper, I did feel it....
Well, last week end we purchased (at Kitchen Collection), a Ronco rotisserie.....our daughter had purchased one awhile ago and loves it....so.....
Anyway, today is a boneless rib roast to be accompanied by roast potatoes and carrots...leftover (it's a 4.35 lb. roast) are targeted for hot roast beef sandwiches later this week....with the obligatory Tater Tots....and a salad...then we may venture out to our local LL Bean store (about 20 miles away) to look for a couple of items.....
Trip, if they shut everything down here every time there is a snowflake, we might as well just crawl into a cave and hibernate until spring!
In fact,it is "flurrying" yet again. I was hoping for some fresh snow this weekend so I could go snowshoeing, but instea we got freezing rain.
Good morning from my part of NY .Its sunny but 5 degrees ,I am hibernating .I will watch some movies ,the first is Scarface starring Paul Muni .The film was made in 1932 .
Later on I will watch the JETS
Sunday mornoing and I can smell the coffee . . . mmmmm . . .
Don't know what the day will hold. So far as I could tell, it didn't make 80 yesterday, and it certainly doesn't feel that it will today. For sure, some of that coffee, some breakfast, the Los Angeles Times, the crossword, and lunch out somewhere or other . . .
Good morning from a sunny, and cool Texas. It isn't as bad outside as all of you, so I am thankful for our weather.
Not a good couple of days for me, but it has passed, and as before, I get out of it stronger than before. Had a breakdown with the diet/exc I should have watched those fiber bar commercials more. But, if you can read my mind, you know I am feeling better.
Not much on the agenda today. I plan on working out a little, and then football, football. At this point, I am hopeful that the two best matched teams win, so that we have a great super bowl this year.
For those who don't follow football, it will be in Dallas this year. We are 3 hours away from there, and all of our hotels are booked for that weekend. I am told that soon, all those in San Antonio will be as well. They are a good four to five hours away. They are also charging 200 dollars to stand outside the stadium to watch the game on the big screen. I actually tried to get seats. Some of the seats are 32,000 dollars.
This is for you Packers fans out there. One of our friends here in Nova Scotia is the Packers biggest fan. For the past 2 weeks of Saturday night Trivia at the pub, he has brought along his little Beenie Baby Green Bay Packer bear to sit on the table with us. He told us that during last week's game (win) the bear was doing back flips!
