People have commented on my blog that we might still get out of here this winter. That's not in the plans even if the deportation thing gets resolved quickly. I have an appointment with an eye surgeon in January about getting my cataracts removed so even if this gets straightened out, we'll remain here in Ottawa for the winter.
It was 7C (45F) when I went for my morning walk so didn't need the usual bundling up. Just as I got to the Trans Canada Trail I heard the tap tap tapping of a little Downy Woodpecker. That made a good start to my day.

Where are the green fields coming from at this time of year?

We spent a pretty quiet day and I even got in a nap this afternoon before Nancy's company, Mark and Joyce arrived for dinner. These are old friends that used to be her neighbours in a previous location. We had an excellent dinner of ribs, broccoli, carrots, roast potatoes (I had brown rice) and I made two mug cakes since it was Joyce's birthday.
