    No worries, Mel.
    Part of the fun of looking at the tracks is not knowing what made some tracks. I love a mystery.

    Lazy day, dark, cold and rainy. Says it might get to freezing but I think it is too wet…and everything is still holding onto its warmth. Full moon total eclipse in the morning with lots of strange astrological alignments so anything is possible :rolleyes:

    You're welcome Pacnor. :stew2: Hang in there.

    The arctic front brought us -18 today without the WC and about a foot of snow. Not complaining though as my cousins are up North and -26 C. brrrr. Tomorrow is a town day, so we will allow for extra time. The propane delivery comes today, so it was a bundle up day so that I could widen the driveway and clear a trail to the propane tank. Always bitter sweet - happy to have the propane ( runs our hot water, the generator, a back up furnace and a couple of direct vent furnaces in the kids rooms) but not happy with the bill. Such is life. I have neighbours that rely heavily on electric heat and their one bill in winter is more than my propane for the year, so even though the cost is up like everything else, it is a necessary evil.

    Stay warm and toasty everyone. :)

    Good Tuesday afternoon all. Currently 8°C and sunny. Busy at work today taking down the fall decorations, and jumping right into Christmas decorations! I'm feeling disgustingly festive for this time of year, but maybe thats because my last 2 Christmas's were total bummers (Lost my Mom right before Christmas 2020, and my dad at the end of October 2021, and then Covid hit my sisters family so we couldn't get together) We are really hoping Christmas 2022 will be a good one!
    Off to the rink, have a good night all :)

    Time for you to have lots of holiday cheer Netty.
    Today is first frost and the mountains have new snow.

    The feral bunnies are staying in my back yard. Guess I should look into finding an agency to neuter them. Have been reluctant but don’t want a population problem. These are now too big for the cats to bother and my old dogs prefer to harass the squirrels.

    Winter has arrived for many of us. Lots of great mountain pics. And to heat homes this season is tough .
    Thank goodness we have alternate heat when power goes out wood burning stove until burning wood becomes illegal.

    roof pic frost and driveway pic mulched all the leaves which covered the driveway and road now all clear.
    And birds eye view of partial back garden.
    Was up on roof to blow off leaves but to frosty..

    Y’know Pacnor— I love seeing your property pics. Every time you give us a glimpse, it is just stunning to see. I would love being your gardener. Haha. What a great garden that would be to work in.

    Good Friday afternoon all. Currently 12°C and raining.
    Looks like I might be done my job for the season, and I couldn't be happier! I have SO much to do around my own yard before the weather turns snowy! And the house needs a good fall cleanout too. I never thought I would see the day that I was excited to CLEAN! haha
    Have a great night all :)

    Today is Veterans Day. Lord God, Almighty Father, creator of mankind and author of peace, as we are ever mindful of the cost paid for the liberty we possess, we ask you to bless the members of our armed forces. Give them courage, hope and strength. May they ever experience your firm support, gentle love and compassionate healing. Be their power and protector, leading them from darkness to light. To you be all glory, honor and praise, now and forever. Amen.
    Sending blessings to all who have sacrificed so much for this country including my sweet DH a pilot during the war and for the many who gave all.

    Moving and nice words, Pacnor.
    I have a place in my heart for military men and women and their sacrifices, so I join you in this sentiment.
