Snow Day

Another one of those days when all you can say is, “Didn’t go as planned.”

It started with the power going off at about midnight (again!) and snow continuing to fall until we woke up to a hint of clear skies and two feet of snow on the ground. Well then!

Snowshoeing at 9? Maybe not.

While Simon got the snowblower revved up, I shovelled the back 4 for the dogs. And we had it good compared to Nicky and Brent who had their garage/storage tent collapse on all their stuff. Ugh!

It was 11.30 by the time we had things cleared enough to venture downtown (downtown! Ha! One grocery store and a coffee shop!)

I thought to deposit my cheque (for writing a story for a magazine – check out latest edition of Inspired Senior Living), take out some money, mail a letter at the post office, go to the liquor store – duhhhh. All closed of course. So we bought some groceries from New Market which runs a big generator. Yeah – they know about life in the Kootenays!

So – back home for lunch and sitting by the fire reading. And then, glory be! The power came on at about 2.30.

It is now time for a hot bubble bath.

Desperate to get out in non-shovelling mode. I want to ski!!!! Or snowshoe.

Got the presents wrapped today – tomorrow, we put up our tree!

I have been rationing Simon to one Christmas cookie per day until the 25th. Of course, the problem there is that I didn’t actually count them all. Hopefully, he doesn’t see this post. You never know what he’ll get up to after I got to bed at night. Might have to hide those cookie tins. Not from him, of course, from the Sasquatch that’s been lurking around the place (so he says).
