I am attempting to distract myself from
the weather. It is snowing again; a
cold and fluffy rain. Winter
will arrive on Monday and after that
the days will slowly and surely get
longer. The high speed Internet is still
strong and clear.
This past week Terra watched the Olympic Torch pass by on the street; and witnessed the handoff at the local Market Square. A memorable event.
Last night I fried some of the pike we caught in the Hudson Bay Lowlands. So delicious! I first sauteed a goodly portion of freshly chopped garlic, then added the fish. The garlic went all crunchy and the fish was cooked to perfection. A few boiled potatoes and peas, and the meal was complete. Tonight the leftovers will make an excellent dinner.
The weather has turned a bit colder now, and we are maintaining a comfortable temperature by burning three fires a day. Mist is loving it!
The web redesign was completed in one day, Monday, a first for me. Yesterday I moved on to work on the family genealogy, which went very well. I am developing a system to follow for researching my direct line, so that I can switch from direct line research to the aimless wandering I enjoy so much.
Sometimes to amuse myself, I look at real estate in Toronto. I love Toronto and would love to live there. It is far beyond our means, to afford even the smallest hovel in Toronto.
Looking at real estate in Toronto is much like pressing my face against a candy store window. I can look, but that wall of glass forms an invisible barrier. Of course, the invisible barrier may or may not shatter at some point. Perhaps I should stand back from it a bit, just in case!

By The Easy Chair
I really must get out to the library!
"Chance cannot touch me! Time cannot hush me!
Fear, hope, and longing, at strife,
Sink as I rise, on, on, upward forever,
Gathering strength, gaining breath,—naught can sever
Me from the Spirit of Life!"
Margaret Witter Fuller
