First Blast Of Winter Weather

It didn't take long for winter to arrive, after we settled into our new place in St. Albert.  Brrrrrr!

Our new neighbours and nearby relatives assure us that, while the St. Albert winters will be a little longer than the ones weve been accustomed to in Calgary, the summers, here, are also a little longer.  Promises, promises. 

We have to make it through the winter, first, before their prognostications can be proven!

Finally found time to start unpacking my RPG and Appendix N collections over the weekend.  I've been working on plans for three sets of built-in bookshelves  Until those are built everything goes into the old bookcases.  Found a custom bookcase website that has some great-looking custom bookcase examples.  I'll need to wait until springtime to get working on versions of my own.  Here's a sample from the website that I particularly liked, it needs at least two more shelves to accommodate all of my books.

That shelf is gorgeous. Love it.

Hey, we beat you this year as we had our first solid snow day already.

Madness I tells ya! I'm told that, unlike Calgary, the snow in Edmonton STAYS until the spring.

How goes it in whisk-land?

Things are going good. I'm on rest for awhile because of spinal issues. So I'm taking advantage of my time, writing, couponing, baking and cooking. Oh yeah, and resting.

Can't forget that part.

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving?

Aaron E. Steele said...

Had a great Canadian thanksgiving. We'll be celebrating American thanksgiving in San Fran this year. Sorry to hear about the health troubles. Sciatica?

The Happy Whisk said...

You making Heart Attack Potatoes for your San Fran Thanksgiving?

That's what I had last time, sciatica. This time things didn't get that bad, thankfully because I stopped doing the hunch over prep work for long hours on my feet.

Good memory though.

Got any block heater buying tips?

With a heated garage and underground heated office parking, I'm hoping block heaters will not be needed this year!

Ooooh, an optimist! ;)
