On Wednesday, Apr. 15th we woke to a warm Suite but it was only -5C outside. Yeuch! The ground was lightly dusted with a white coating of you know what. Not a pretty sight. The sun really wanted to make an appearance and played a good game of control throughout the morning but lost to the clouds each time. I had made plans yesterday, talking to Donna, to meet at Rockwood today at 2 and when we witnessed a couple of snow blizzards up here, I texted her with doubts that it would happen after all.
|Through the screened window, that was not a warm day out there|
Bill and I went about our morning ritual at the table of reading blogs while having our coffee and tea. As warm as it is in the living room area of the suite, when sitting at the table in the door end of the slide-out, it feels quite cool at our legs and feet. Neither of us like to sit there too long especially when the wind is blowing from the northwest, which is often. So, after reading and commenting, I moved to my chair with a blanket over my feet. Donna texted during the morning that our meet was a go.
|Now my booties have a little bow at the back|
I still wasn’t 100% happy with my bootie slippers as the wool does stretch after pulling them on and off a few times. While sitting there I chain stitched a necklace and then a couple of lengths to go around the top of the bootie that I could tighten and loosely tie. Now, I’m happy. I started the new book but only got a chapter read before Bill and I started talking about ways to make our home warmer in the event that we are unable to go south this winter. It is a possibility even though we hate to think it.
|Ptooties is saying 'what's this white stuff?'|
|The solar panels in the corner field were waiting for the sun too|
I drove in to the post office to mail a parcel and then went to meet sis. She was inside the foyer and we both dropped our mail for Mom in the resident box. I got 3 puzzles from her and we walked back to our vehicles together, catching up a bit. It was the cold wind that drove us into our cars more than anything and we said goodbye and went our separate ways. Back home, Bill wasn’t home so I knew he was at the Acreage checking the water. Unfortunately, today, nothing was flowing over there.
|When I came back from Durham, I followed an Airstream|
We’d had a poor man’s breakfast this morning of oatmeal and toast so around 3, we had a snack of cheese, crackers and some pub mix with a drink. Mine was a virgin Miami Vice and Bill’s was a Gatorade. We had bought a 12-pack on our way home from the U.S. as we heard it was good for keeping hydrated. He may as well drink them and we’ll forget about the sugar in them for now. We sat together to enjoy the rather unorthodox meal.

|Simple meal of soup was all we needed tonight|
I was slowly getting into the first few chapters of my book so had one eye on the pages and one on the tv. This was a pretty calm day in our life on the Ridge but it passed, we are healthy and still staying warm. If you are experiencing any of this cold weather like we are, I think you'll agree with my title for today's post.
|And this was the best sky we had all day|
Good night folks!
Stay healthy and safe please!
Thank you for popping by.
