The Good, The Bad, and The Weather

So you may not hear from me for a couple of weeks.  Our internet is down.  But rest assured that I will let you know as soon as it’s back up with lots of fascinating things to read.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that Darryl’s truck is back on the road and gets even better mileage than before.  The new injector pump works great, and Darryl replaced the brushes on the starter so it works great too.

We, yes WE, got a job setting up three paint displays at Home Depot in Westbank, Kamloops and Vernon. The first one took 6 hours, but the next two should take no longer than 4.5.  Sadie came with us to supervise and she did a great job keeping us on track and providing a little sunshine to employees working the night shift.

We got a cat for free that’s apparently a good mouser and friendly.  Nix the friendly part.  He’s been in the house for ten days and hardly comes out of hiding.  We let him outside today.  Now he’s hiding under the couch on the deck.

The dog we were thinking about getting isn’t coming anymore.  Her owners think she needs someone with more time to work with her.  That’s okay though cause we’d have to teach her not to chase chickens anyway.

Well, I’d better run.

Oh wait, the weather!  The other day, it was snowing in the morning.  Yay.  It wasn’t much and it didn’t stay on the ground at all, but it’s a little early for snow even for here.

I lost the rest of my garden to frost.  There were about 200 tomatoes still on the vines but they all froze and then thawed.  Luckily I got lots of tomatoes chopped and frozen already, so I’m thankful for that.  Not too bad for $2 worth of plants.
