    Sailor, we got that snow, too. It is all gone now and it is currently cloudy with light rain and 6 degrees, so I am betting that the white stuff is done for this season. And I live in Yarmouth now, for the past six years, but who's counting?
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Well, promoters might not appreciate you, but performers sure do!

    What are you doing about it?

    Apparently the next millennial craze is film cameras. I bought a few formerly high end now cheap SLRís and am in the process of testing them out. I just sent my first 3 rolls off for professional processing. It will be interesting to see what comes back.

    Woodwork, varnish and paint on a boat my wife an I rebottomed last year. It should be ready for the sea in a couple of weeks. Tonight we'll enjoy our portable sauna at a small lake on the island where we have our cottage. The sun is shining. Everything is perfect. /Erik

    No more beautiful weekend days spent with me starting in the kitchen and Renee starting bathroom and meeting in the middle cleaning the house all day.

    Now Monday ( tomorrow ) two lovely ladies with a plethora of cleaning supplies and experience, spend two hours cleaning our place better than we could ever.

    Time is commodity you will never get back.

    This morning, I will do some schedule and setting up spreadsheets for tomorrow's payroll and list of to do's to go over with my monday morning meeting with my admin. Also write out our corporate IRS checks

    Then I'm gonna go out for a bicycle ride to blow off some steam

    Building a new battery box to hold the new starter batteries that some @#*ing genius decided should have a 1/2 inch lip around the bottom of the case. This has necessitated moving wiring and a fuse box while working in a space not much larger than D. Trump’s heart.

    Paul does most of the he housework during the week, but not the bathrooms. I do the bathrooms. Since it is just the two of us, itís not that much. Iíve priced out housecleaning services, because of our remote location and number of pets, it is still cost prohibitive.

    Several years ago I bought a perpetual bi-weekly house cleaning service for her for her birthday. At the time she was working 12-14 hour days. After six months or so she begged me to discontinue it as she always felt compelled to clean the house before the maids arrived lest they think we live in a dirty house. She said the added stress was too much.

    I finished painting the kitchen yesterday. We then tackled the garage. Lots of cleaning, organizing, and getting rid of things. A run to Goodwill yesterday and a run to the dump today. I am also baking some sourdough bread.

    Weather is too cold, rainy, and windy to take the boat out.

    As for house cleaning, we had the same issue in a past life: gotta clean up for the cleaners.....

He needed a dinghy, and a TB would fit on his foredeck, so I put my oar in, organised a pickup and its now sitting up on the grass next to SEI, DeFlatermouse and the Kayak. I'll take it on up to my friends place on Tuesday when I'm heading that way.
    I hope tomorrows plan survives.

    Sundays plan worked. Seeing as I was one of those who set up the meeting, I figured that I should brave the not so good weather and take SEI (15ft rowing and sailing double ender) around to the bay where we were supposed to gather. it wasnt a nice day for rowing, 20 knots plus forecast, and the weatherman had got it right, wind against tide so short steep chop, about 5km each way. I had the only boat there and two others walked in, so we had an hour sitting under a tree out of the occasional very cold shower of rain before I rowed back. We got bounced around so much that the dog got seasick!
    Oh well, shoulders slightly tender today, but otherwise ok, no blisters, and it was a good trial in open water for the little boat. Almost no water at all on board in spite of waves about twice the height of the gunwale and very close together, SEI performed really well.

    Got home and did a bit of a tidy up in the workshop ready to do some work today.

    First off -
    @ Ron - no you are not the only one doing taxes
    @ Michael (MMD) - thank you for ammunition on the ongoing "Southern NS is south of us, so moving there would be moving closer to the sun!" "discussion". Our snows won't come off until mid-May.

    Besides taxes, I spent much of yesterday boiling (around here, people know what that means - to others: boiling sap to make maple syrup), got the truck & light bar, etc. together for pulling the CC out of winter storage tomorrow morning (the trailer registration is still valid - hot damn!), seeing if the garden tractor that has the leaf bags will start (it did, but leaves have to get un-soggy first), unloading/moving some big stones (1'x4'x3') for a retaining wall, pulling driveway stakes (for marking driveway for plowing - 4 out of ~30 weren't broken off!) and now I get to relax & deal with writing 2 reports (for work) that were supposed to be done by tomorrow morning, but yesterday hit the high 60's & I couldn't make myself sit at the confuser.

    We got a load to the dump, including a old 8D battery that had been kicking around too long; it got recycled.

    The sourdough loaf turned out excellently.

    I found some stuff in the garage that had been hiding for too long.

    No starter motor problems on that ride!
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
