  1. oh I love that emo-movie mountain snow does that yeh, outages ... confusing what day it is and what i'm supposed to be doing next they don't give us anything but they don't charge for the outage time, like 0 kilowatt hours being used. well i guess that's good. mine and 454 other households are in the same grid area that gets attacked by hapless trees
  2. Get well soon Jude. Those hangers-on bugs are no fun Excellent that K and A were in Hawaii and home again ❤️ ! I hear the pitter-patter of rain-rain-rain. Tomorrow we should be able to walk around outside on bare ground. That dump of snow we had was treacherous
  3. I know. And yes! including jalapeños Ok. Now I'm hungry
  4. maybe like ollebolle, those round doughnuts from Holland or Aebelskiver (a Danish friend makes those)...? (from the Bureau of Useless Information, ere I ) The power came back after lunch today. 26 hours out and weather was snowy awful, plus the internet coonection went for 12 of those hours But the grocery delivery van was early, in daylight. He did not want to get stuck in our snowy driveway, carried two bins with our order up the hill. we met him halfway and we have a varied diet again. I do like your long and windy sentence
  5. Those ~ ~ ~ ~ are cool aren't they! No wood stove, but we can start the generator and run a small ceramic heater to keep the chill off. I like the kitchen set-up with the generator, a one-burner hotplate with cast iron cookware, there is radiant heat. When we used a campstove with propane fuel we would have to have a window open. Electric off the grid is better. Thank you - Power is holding, for now. We are wearing woolies !
  6. Yerss... and about March On Vancouver Island We are really snowed on today Stay home, they say. I can't even see my car
  7. oh! lovely all. blue sky makes a snowy day nicer Old Man Winter (or is he the North Wind, say...?) is gorgeous; the wee tile is absolutely fascinating.
  8. it's a brilliant invention win-win-win i will be putting a few to-go pots of soup into the freezer. for an easy meal soon again
  9. It is a soup day. Chickpea curry on the menu.
  10. Good plan Freezing temperatures, the flowers will go brown but the plant nor unopened buds won't mind!
  11. Hope you get the issues sorted soonest
  12. Appears that will be later this week but first another snowfall warning Yesterday's picture from my house;
  13. Phook. who'd'a known an update would be such a hassle I was just now going to jot a message good to see yours just now even if i have been preoccupied with the weather, anxious about driving to a doctor's appointment today if it would . but we cancelled due to (how's that for logic ... ) and we had a power outage in a howling wind-storm
