"Get some sewing in"! Maybe someday I will.

Told a friend about "yano". Her mom has round the clock caregivers but they are all Phillipino and they always make sure there is someone to replace anyone leaving, and train the newbies! A tight community.

Only about 4 inches of light fluffy snow last night! YAY! But I managed to get car stuck in driveway on Saturday so I finally called on a neighbour for help. He shoveled the snow and extricated the car; his shovels looked more effective - a trip to Home Hardware. His muscles are much more effective - OH well. He came back after the snowplow and cleared what it had done!

COLD, windy. Only down to minus 20 C so far tonight. Last night I turned the cube heater in the studio all the way up and it was only 38F in there this am. If it gets colder, there are no options. Hope!

The house is OK and I brought in more wood today after clearing a good path. Find the dolly very effective as it saves me carrying and the wheels are adequate to go though the bit of snow and even over the throw rugs. It takes up room in the LR but all things considered, that is a minor detail. When one of the usual (2) spaces become empty, I can wheel it over and offload so it is ready for the next load. And I only have to open the door once, a bit longer, to bring in the equivalent of 6 armloads! This was a great idea!

Otherwise, I am still in semi-hibernation.

Eclipse any minute now??
