      Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
      I went to bed around midnight and woke up at 10. I got out of bed at 11.

        The concert was canceled.

        We hold our concerts in a school and the school board closed the schools because of a snowstorm.

        But thanks

        • 43 Days 9 Hours 26 Minutes

          Food
          L – Cauliflower, mushroom, apple, bacon, almond salad with bacon drippings and balsamic vinegar
          D – roast beef, broccoli, brussel sprouts, baked beans. Baked apple and dates with goat cheese.

          Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
          No candy, no chocolate, no wine.
          We avoided going in the ditch while driving in a snowstorm, and we decided to turn back before it got worse.

          Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
          Nope
          Some shopping with my sister and mother.

          Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
          I went to bed about 11:45. I woke up at 8 to discover that the school board had closed all the schools in the board because of a snowstorm. (This rarely happens). Because the schools were closed, the concert was canceled. (The concert was going to be in the school)

          My Farmer had an appointment with an eye specialist in the city at 11. We left at 9:30 in the truck. (I was getting new tires on my beetle) The roads were fine at home. They got progressively worse as we headed into the city.



          We called the Dr. and moved his apt to Friday. We turned around and came home. On the way we saw this:



          When we got home my sister wanted to drive into a different city (an hour in the opposite direction) so I went with her and my mom. The roads were bare. I bought a few Christmas presents and a few groceries and was home at 6:30.

          I had an easy evening, getting caught up on some other forums I’m on (and have been neglecting to read). I’m now watching Jim Carrey’s “How The Grinch Stole Christmas”

          Speaking of Christmas. Ben Kitty LOVES the tree:

            • There is no school in the whole board again today.

              Huge amounts of snow in the city. The University and College are closed. No public transit running.

              Here, the ground is bare and the sun is shining.

              • 42 Days 11 Hours 10 Minutes

                Food
                L – my friend’s homemade Minestrone soup (without pasta)
                S – a few dates, one ounce of dark chocolate
                D – pan fried chicken breast, cauliflower with cheese, 2 small glasses of wine

                Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
                No candy.
                A few weeks ago I switched from using a large wine goblet to a small wine glass.

                Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
                None, but my wrist is feeling better.

                Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
                I went to bed at 1:30am. I was reading and waiting for my iPhone to update…
                Awake at 7, just long enough to find out that there was no school again today.
                The phone rang at 9:30. I got up at 10. I got ready and went to my friends house to help her with her Human sexuality university project. I converted the photos I took the other day to a Sepia tone.
                She served me homemade Minestrone soup.

                I dropped off some of my daughter’s clothes at my sisters. She knows a girl in grade 6 that needs clothes (bad home life). Then I took my daughter to her music lessons, but the Physio was cancelled – the Physiotherapist couldn’t get out of the city.
                Then we dropped of my daughter’s old winter coat and snow pants at my sisters as well.

                My Farmer and my son went to the deer hunter’s place to cut up the 10 deer. They took venison chili with them.
                After supper, my daughter and I went over to the deer hunters and bagged up 36 medium sized freezer bags of scraps for the Papillons! There was still more when we left, and the Farmer will bring it home with him, along with the ‘people’ venison

                My wrist is feeling better. Tomorrow I really gotta get back to exercising!

                No school in the board again tomorrow! The city is snowed in. My nephew has been stuck in the city since Sunday night. We have NO snow here.

                • that was a very good idea switching from goblet to glass. I only pour myself small glasses, the fireman tends towards a more heavy hand though I have to say.

                  Bizzarre you have no snow where you are!

                  You are going to have very happy papillions.

                      I measured both glasses today. With the goblet, I was drinking 10 oz and with the small glass I am drinking 5 oz!

                      The kids want to move to where the snow is

                      Yup! The Paps are thrilled!

                      The weird part is that there is no snow here, but they are 'snow days'.
                      The kids love it. "Dear school board: You make me happier than a fat kid getting a lifetime supply of ice cream!"

                      Thanks, I wrapped my wrist to exercise today. It helped.

                      And, oh yes! we will all enjoy the venison!
