Boxing day here is much different than in Edmonton, nothing is open here, ok, some things were open but I didn't want to go to those places. We got the truck washed, picked up some milk and came home. Good enough, no crowds, no traffic so it wasn't all bad and we were even second in line at the car wash! Hope Christmas went well for everyone, and hopefully our Christmas cards made it in time.

Justice James Williams threw the book at serial killer Robert Pickton, condemning him to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.
Their healthcare may suck but they seem to have a handle on sentencing!

..Major winter storm poised to affect province late on Sunday and
A winter storm brewing over Texas this morning will continue to
develop as it tracks northeastward over the weekend. The storm
system is expected to lie over Massachusetts Sunday evening before
moving through New Brunswick on Monday. Southern regions of the
province are already under a heavy snowfall warning for Sunday.
It is anticipated that these warnings will be extended over the
remainder of province for Sunday night. Strong winds and local
blowing snow will accompany the heavy snowfall. Precipitation will
change through ice pellets and to rain overnight Sunday over southern
regions as milder air is pushed ahead of the storm system.
The travelling public is advised that they should make plans
accordingly. Driving conditions could deteriorate quickly as the
storm approaches. Follow your local forecast closely and monitor for
updates as the weather situation develops.
Too funny, or not, we'll see what transpires
Sunny with cloudy periods. 40 percent chance of flurries this morning. Wind northwest 30 km/h gusting to 50. Temperature steady near minus 11.
A few clouds. Wind northwest 20 km/h becoming light this evening. Low minus 15.
Increasing cloudiness. Snow at times heavy beginning late in the day. Amount 5 cm. High minus 9.
Snow and blowing snow. Windy. Low minus 8. High minus 2.
Sunny. Low minus 12. High minus 8.
A mix of sun and cloud. Low minus 18. High minus 8.
It does make you wonder who you are supposed to believe, the weathercaster the night before or the weather office. I don't know about you, but I've never been in a job where you can be so wrong so much of the time and still have a job :) We'll stock up on gas n candles anyway just to be on the safe side. We'll probably end up with a Chinook or something!

Mark & Lynn
This is just too funny, thanks Deb!

All of this upheaval has put me behind on cataloging my videos, I'm behind probably twenty or more movies. Heck, we haven't even had time to watch a lot of video but once things settle down, I'm sure that we'll have more time for relaxing.
I had always said that acreages take more work than it would first appear and I was right, our lawn loves to grow and it takes quite a while to get it all mowed but then, we're retired, we have nothing but time on our hands :) We trimmed the bushes and trees on the west side of the property so that we can mow under them without being impaled by the branches. I'm going to do the east side when the ground dries up a bit, we had some rain last night. Once that is done it will make cutting the lawn a lot easier. Lynn handles the tractor like a pro but I'm sure that with practice (I seem to be getting a lot of practice) I'll get better.
Lynn now has the opportunity to get setting up her workshop at the back of the garage with all of her tools and new toys, she's itching to build. She already made a tv stand to lift the tv in our bedroom so that it's higher than the foot of the bed and not only does it do what it was designed for, it looks very nice too.
I'm gonna head off to get the mail now and do some stuff in the garage...l8r
Lynn made new drapes for the living room, replacing the old dowdy pink curtains that had been there when we moved in, now we have lots of light streaming in and beautiful colors to look at instead of that pink or dusty rose! If you don't remember what I'm talking about...here's the link..
Actually, the original reno's are now done, I
decided that I needed a cabinet to hold all of
my spices, so that is being built right now
and will be installed in September. However,
everything else is done and paid for! We
survived and now kitchen duty is normal and
Lynn doesn't have to do the dishes by hand
