Good Morning

Having just finished my second cup of coffee, I decided that now would be a good time to write a little bit for the blog.
Nova Scotia has finally welcomed winter, and this what it looked like out my window yesterday.

The windows rattled as the storm raged with gusting winds and
blowing snow. Almost everything was shut down for the day.
The border between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia was closed, as the highway
was impassible.
The poor little birds had great trouble getting their food, between
the wind and the snow cover.
Not a very nice day.

Above is a picture out the same window, this morning.
It is coated with ice.
Today, once again the schools are closed, and the roads dangerous.

I did not accomplish very much yesterday. A bit of vacuuming was about all. Not that I didn't have plans, but I just didn't seem to have any energy. I don't know what it is about storms, but they leave me feeling lethargic. Sadie too. She was not pleased with the snow hill on the back porch that she had to climb down and back up. She managed quite well, though.

Just listening to the news, and there are cars in ditches, and a school bus has gone off the road. I'm glad the kids under our school board are home for the day. Our back roads can be pretty awful after a storm.

More snow for the weekend is in the forecast, so perhaps we are getting the winter we didn't get before Christmas. I'm wondering what we will get in February.

Sadie and I are playing a little game......take the pill.....find the pill.....retake the pill. She has become very good at spitting up her pills without me realizing it. This adds a new meaning to reuse or recycle. If I find a pill on the floor, it is given again. She is definitely trying to tell me something.

There's not much else to write about today. Sunshine tomorrow? Here's hoping.

    Give Sadie a hug and I send one to you.
