Here are a few of my favorite online haunts:
[This is the site I visit to fantasize about
living in Toronto again, which is almost
day during the winter]
Jonathan Cainer's Zodiac Forecasts
[This is where I visit in the morning, when
I need a positive spin on things past, present
[This is where I go to see what Canadians
are up to, sometimes I even buy things from
the businesses listed there.]
Environment Canada Weather
[This is the site I visit every morning,
and before every road trip during the winter]
Sadly, we could not see our way clear to make the trip to Terra's.
Terra and Lares, Luna, Imp, Elf and Tink all traveled to visit Lares
Mom for Christmas Day.
Our Christmas Day was very quiet, we missed everyone. Luna and Terra
sent us a short video of themselves, with Lares, Imp, Elf and Tink.
It was lovely, but there really is nothing like the real thing. We
enjoyed a turkey dinner with all the trimmings and a Christmas Pudding.
Boxing day it rained, with freezing rain and sometimes heavy snow.
Terra and Lares decided to brave the drive north, a few hours from
Lares' Mom's place. Of course I worried, but shouldn't have because
Lares is an excellent and experienced driver. They arrived safe and
sound yesterday afternoon.
We played cards and talked and laughed till the wee hours of the morning.
Mist of course came into Attila and my bedroom to wake me up at 6:30
a.m. the following morning. Mist panics if we stay in bed "too
long", as there are fires that need to be lit and laps needed
for morning cuddles.
Attila made us a big breakfast of wild blueberry pancakes, using the
wild blueberries he and I picked last summer. We played cards, went
for a walk and had a quick lunch before Terra and Lares packed their
gear and readied themselves for the long trip home; then they were
off. I miss them already.
Caitrìona called from Florida, she is having a wonderful time
and sounds very happy. Both Terra and I got to chat with her.
Harriet, Hogan and their daughter, and her boyfriend, are up at their
cottage for a few days to enjoy a bit of snowmobiling. Thankfully the
roads are clear and dry today.
Attila is enjoying his time off work, four consecutive days! Chores,
that are too strenuous for me to tackle, have been summarily dealt
with, and Attila is even taking on some little projects he has been
waiting for ages to get to. He returns to work in the morning.
I have two partial days of work scheduled for this coming week, something
to keep me out of trouble and help towards the next car payment.

These old boots carried me through some of the most cherished years of
my life. They wore out years and years ago. I am saying goodbye to these
old friends, and hate to see them go.
