Yes, the groan was for Geoff's jokes.

Painted the bedroom ceiling today--a job I hate, but the non splatter roller I got works great! Really cut down on prep. Just have a sore neck--but a pristine ceiling. no more smoking in the house now.

I too am cream crackered--saving the walls for tomorrow--easiest part of the job.

Then new curtains and cushions-have the fabric all ready.

And so to bed.

Hi,all- thanks for the words of encouragement. Have not tried electric ciggies-not available here. I am on the patch, because it's free--the provincial gov't supplies them through their quit smoking program. I am down to 3 a day--have been for a couple of weeks. My goal was to cut down--and I have--drastically.

Raining here, and will be for the forseeable future. Had a short walk this morning, and chopped wood for 1/2 hour.

One small glass of wine with dinner--but I put ice in it to make it bigger! Only 1 week on WeightWatchers, but it's working! I am down 12 pounds since November-was doing lo-carb before last week.

Welcome Bunny----I am the late joiner as I live far away. Wine and chocolate--sounds good to me. if a tad early-it's just after 1 pm here.

Chuffed at losing 3.2 lbs this week---guess I'll pass on the chocolate, but will have a glass or two of wine with dinner to celebrate!

Just did a seed order-am going to try artichokes as ornamentals this year. Other thistles seem to grow well!

Hello, Freerange Forkers----glad to see you are still coping with the white stuff by getting out and about. Love the Snowbarb! Still have ghost ships moaning eerily in the foggy Pass, but supposed to rain tonight. Woke to the sweet sound of heavy machinery on my hill--they had to fix it before it rains, I'm guessing.

Weigh-in day--have lost some, so it's all good. And have done a temporary fix on the garden gate--think I will build a new one, and see how creative I can get with it.

Jean, I just checked out the weather sattelite, and there is a huge front approaching all the way from Alaska to Mexico--due to arrive tomorrow or the next day. So I will have something to moan about then. This fog is frustrating--sun in the forecast for the last few days, but not strong enough to burn it off here. Feel a bit cheated!

Hoping for no snow--it's +1 here at the mo'.

Morning, Fantastic Forkers-----hope the thaw comes soon for you----I used to love snow days as long as I didn't have to go anywhere.

Fogged in again--can't see the water at all.

Enjoyed Downton last night--only trouble is, it means I miss Lewis--luckily mt friend has recorded them all. I shall borrow them when I drop the dogs off later today.

The transition from snow is always the yukkiest part--best you can hope for is a good rain.

Hi Frigid Forkers--in fine form, I see. Some of you seem to be 12. What's next--poop and fart jokes?

Stuck in the fog here at the moment, but sun is forecast, so we can hope. The garden gate is still not fixed, but seeds are sorted and propogators filled with starting mix. Won't be planting til next month, but doing some germination tests on some old seeds.

I start them off on top of the fridge.

Igloo building is an art--it's done in a spiral, and the inward slope is very important. Of course, our neigbours to the south think most of us live in igloos--but not so--there are several hotels made of ice!

Here on the Island the school closes for power outages; the bus doesn't run if it snows; the high school  boat doesn't run in windy weather, and the school closes in snow if it gets deep enough! On a windy, hilly island, it's a safety measure--as acting head, I've had to close twice. It's a nuisance, because if the kids are there, we have to make sure everyone gets picked up before the staff can leave--lots of phoning! Luckily the school is very small. We also have a phone notification tree. The school boat will return early if necessary--kids can pick up school work here.
