Beautiful Winter

I love that it is staying lighter longer in the evenings. A month ago it would be almost dark now at 4:30. This morning at eight, the full moon was still quite visible in the northwest and a beautiful streaky pink sky covered the southeast. It was so truly beautiful! I wanted to be outside walking but had to be somewhere and had a ride. I have a friend coming for a visit for a few days and she loves to walk so I'm happy to know I'll put a few miles on.

There was one aspect of country living that has bothered me for the twenty-four years I've lived out here. If you don't feel like cooking supper, too bad, you still have to cook supper. There are no pizza parlors nearby. We have a restaurant in the neighbourhood but it is closed for the season. More than not wanting to cook is the fact that I want pizza and I don't want to make it. Oh well, I just have to bite the bullet.

Marc Broussard did great covers of some old soul songs and this, Come In From the Cold. I had his version of Al Green's great song, Love and Happiness back in September. Cold to Colder is a song by Sasha Dobson that fits with the weather earlier this week. I love her song, Spring Is Just Around The Corner that I've had up a couple of times.

Now if that's true, it's time for walking.

A photo from my walk to see Billy. One hundred percent!! Wow!! That is fabulous, Darling. Keep that up and you'll get through at the head of the class. Times change, eh?

LOL, Slacker. Where's all the bonus points? You get 40% for getting your name right. Just kidding, Good job girl.
We are driving to Calgary for a few days to see Ellie's son after we drop Dad and Bertie off in Prince George. Their plane leaves at 7:15 AM, so we will be on the road by 6:45 am. We might take the long way and take a few days to get there, but we will be there for the weekend.

I'm confused by your comments - no bonus points there. Call me.

I called ocean the slacker for getting only 100.

I'm a big fan of frozen pizza. The good news is they are now almost as good as take-out pizza. The bad news is they cost essentially as much. There is an awesome pizza place seven mins away from our new house. And you can get two pizzas for $14. Yeah!
