Saturday to Tuesday December 4-7, 2010


It was cloudy and -6C (21F) with -12C (10F) windchill. I dressed for it and didn't find it too bad.

Today I did some running around town, picked up a Sears order, picked up my Avon order etc. Not an exciting day but a tiring one so when I got home I lay down to read and took a nap! This was the first order from my Avon lady. She's really a nice young woman with a couple of young kids and an amazing black Afghan hound. He was so friendly and vocal and HUGE! I love other people's dogs. LOL

After dinner we went out to look at the Christmas lights. There is a lovely one here in town. In fact, I'm going to vote for it! The town has a Light Up Smiths Falls Contest where you can vote for your favourite decorated house or business.

Here's another one that was pretty between Smiths Falls and Merrickville.


At -8C (18C) with a -13C (9F) windchill it was pretty cold this morning but at least the sun was shining even though there were some snow flurries. We have barely enough snow to cover the grass but I hear we are to have more today and tomorrow. We're still warmer than a lot of places that I'm hearing about from RVers though and I hear Buffalo, NY had a blizzard last week that caused a 20 car pileup on the freeway, lake effect snow!

I got a lot of cleaning done!

By the end of the day we had quite a bit of snow, looks Christmasy!

Today was a typical Monday. I went out for my walk but it was a short one as the sidewalks hadn't been plowed. I'm thinking that's not going to happen a lot here.

After breakfast and a shower I headed out for Monday shopping. That accomplished I settled in with my book again.

No walk for me today, blowing and drifting snow, sidewalks not plowed. Bummer!

So, I got my Christmas cards ready. I send very few of them! I sent the ones to the U.K. yesterday.


  1. Oh, that weather doesn't sound too nice.

    Amy more news about being able to come south of the border to escape that weather one day?

  2. Hi Sandra, I am so glad you have a White Christmas look already! Especially with all of that Arctic Air coming out of Canada going as far south as Florida. LOL
    I've only dreamed of a White Christmas, so I enjoyed your pics!

  3. looks like a beautiful white Christmas is in store. I hope you are staying warm! Merry Christmas!
