All fresh and new once again...

Bestofour, do you usually get such mild and rainy temps this time of year?

I got my new cable bundle set up today...after failing to be able to do it myself. The good thing was that it wasn't my fault...the technician had to call himself to sort it out once he was here.

Now if I can only figure out this new remote. lol

I didn't want to get within distance of the cable guy Junie....Covid cases have exploded here. I did figure it out quite easily with a tutorial online though.

They are calling for a snow storm this evening and through the night, the sky looks terrible already.

Yea, I can't blame you, Sunny.
People here seem to be ignoring the virus. I went to the kid's school, the grocery and the pharmacy yesterday. I wore my mask, but I saw noone in any of the 3 places wearing a mask. sometimes you just have to wonder.

I will say this:
My daughter and her entire family are completely vaccinated, and she says she read that a mask just protects others but not the person wearing the mask. She says she is vaccinated and so she is not wearing a mask. But she does carry one for everyone in her family in case a place she has to go requires one. She will wear one then.

OMG Junie, here you don't dare go anywhere even outside off your property without a mask on. The fines are hefty. Mind you, this Omicron is spreading like crazy....it needs a three layer or a n95 mask to protect you they say. Most people wear thin little masks so they can breathe easily, if you can breathe easily than the mask is not working.

This pandemic is going to be never ending, the news stated that now "Florona" has been discovered in Israel. It is a combined version of Covid and the flu together. badday

I wish we were to!d we "had" to wear masks. I could feel better while we are going thru this Covid thing.

Both my DD and the grands do not have school again tomorrow. Thankfully, I get to stay home and keep warm.

Sweet Dreams..sleep well my friends.

I am keeping warm here, we are getting a bad snow storm. When they say a "Nor"Easter" is on it's way...we know we are going to get pounded.

I made a nice pan of pork meatballs and am simmering them in a homemade spaghetti sauce, it smells so delicious in here. I am going to crave for the next 4 hours while it cooks. lol

I use 1 pound ground pork, one slice of bread(dried and crumbled), salt, pepper and onion powder. Mix, form balls and sear in pan....then make my tomato based sauce with spices and throw them in, simmer for 4 hours.

Good morning, the snow is done for a few days but the frostbite warnings have started. It is supposed to drop to minus -33*F by the afternoon.

Home schooling starts here tomorrow.

If it is that cold, I guess inside doing school work is going to be a good place to be.

Keep warm Sunny.

Yes, school would have been cancelled anyway with those temps because the kids are at risk of frostbite waiting for the bus.

That is a good question, Sheri.

It has been in the 20's here the last several days....but this afternoon it was around 40-ish.
I real!y prefer the colder temps. The dog brings in mud and water when the temps are above freezing.

Sleep well my friends.

There are shelters in some parts of our province Bestofour but there is no need to be homeless in our province if one does not want to be.

There are social programs set up to keep you in a boarding house with a monthly check, to help you find a job or attend school....there are no homeless people in our area at all. We have a woman's shelter a 20 minute drive West of here and a men's shelter a 45 minute drive East of here as well but they are mainly used for abusive situations.

That being said, it is the poor animals here that bare the brunt of the cold....there are many homeless pets roaming around.

DH had to plug in the truck for the block heater to warm so that it would start. That means I will hide inside today. lol

Good Morning

So glad that your car can be warmed. But it does sound as if inside is where you should be, Sunny.

It is nice to hear that your homeless are taken care of.

The warmest it is going to be here today is 41*F

We are Junie, I have a chicken vegetable soup simmering on the stove and fresh home made bread to go along with it. Cold weather and soup just goes so good together.

Sunny do you make your bread with a starter? My sister is trying to make sourdough bread using a starter and so far the bed is dense and not too tasty.
