Saturday morning is breakfast time at the Red Top Restaurant for me and has been for years. This morning I headed out the door a few minutes early because snow had been falling and I would have to clean the car off before heading out. I started the car, got the brush out and cleaned… Continue reading Ooops and Fort Whyte Alive
I eat breakfast every day, but Saturday it is eaten at the Red Top Restaurant. They open at 8:00 am and I am usually seated at my reserved spot by 7:55 am. 🙂 I usually go with my friend Connie, but she had both her knees replaced a couple of weeks ago and has not… Continue reading Breakfast
I did not even check the temperature this morning when Chester and I went on our walk. I didn’t even check it when we got home and now around noon it is 27C with a predicted high of 33C and possible thunderstorms to follow. It was very pleasant for our morning walk, so I am… Continue reading Bathing Ducks

But – I had an appointment for a mammogram this morning, so… Continue reading Another Friday
When the snow stopped coming down last night, the temperature began to drop. By morning it was -20C. I went out early to shovel around the car before leaving for my exercise class. Luckily for me my wonderful neighbour Andy had cleared behind the cars with his snowblower. I knew I would have to leave… Continue reading Too Much Snow
