Today will br cloudy with a 60% chance of flurries early this morning then a mix of sun and cloud. The wind will be from the south at 20 km/h (12 mph) becoming light near noon. A high of -9C(15F) is expected. The wind chill factor is -27 this morning.
Tonight will start clear then becoming cloudy periods this evening with an overnight low of -15C(5F).
I spent another evening without the queen last night and am settling into domestic duties. last nights chores included getting the garbage outside into a can and the never ending dishes. I also printed up some of her genealogy documents for her. Though not big jobs but they do pass the time. Boredom is getting to be my biggest enemy now.
The Queen handed in her resignation last night but was offered a 6 month leave of absence starting in March. We've been discussing her retirement for some time and thought this was a good time. She'll make her final decision in August before she is scheduled to return.

Morning, Tony,

I started mine at 4 a.m. when the fire alarm went off in the building next to me. No fire, but of course it gets the adrenalin flowing!
I had to get up, crate the cat just in case, put in my contacts, throw on some clothes, go outdoors, check out the scene..... By the time you get all that done, it's wide-awake time.
So, I did some paperwork, and had a cup of coffee, and then got VERY tired (end of adrenalin surge, I guess) and went back to bed for an hour.

So, here we are: cold, wet, and tired, and still listening to the fire alarm going off. Guess they have to wait for somebody to come out and fix it.

Hope your day goes better than that! I actually was glad to see you mention boredom - it's a sure sign that you're really progressing. When my friend who had a stroke was beginning to really recover, her doctor told her to start doing whatever had given her the most pleasure before - even if she couldn't do it well at all.

She'd done quite a bit of painting, so she started that. We just laughed and laughed at her efforts - they looked like the work of a first grader who really hadn't mastered the concept. But now she has one framed and displayed in her kitchen, just as a reminder of how far she's come!

Have a great day. That leave of absence sounds good. How great that the Queen's employers were willing to go that route.

Good Morning!
It's raining here. We are getting our migratory songbirds coming through. I came home from work and stayed out in the yard until 9am watching birds and freezing my butt off.
Hope you have a great day!

Good morning TONY. Looks like its time to take up a hobby to keep your mind busy. Maybe some artwork, painting comes to mind or you could try your hand at something else. Whatever you do decide, its worth the effort. Hey maybe you can start better therapy than making bread or pies to strengthen those arm muscles and I am sure the wife would love it. She could supervise the first few times. What you can't eat, you can pass on to the family to freeze for when needed. Its fun and creative. Try cookies first then move up to bigger stuff.

Well dear one, there is a light snow falling at the moment, the ground is once again covered in the white stuff and the roads are messy. Could be worse but there is not enough to shovel the driveway so I am not unhappy to see it. This bit of snow will help protect those tender plants come spring and add much needed moisture to the farmer's fields.

Have a great day Tony. I am sure the Queen is looking forward to being off work.

By The Associated Press The Associated Press – Wed Feb 3, 12:00 am ET
Today is Wednesday, Feb. 3, the 34th day of 2010. There are 331 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:

On Feb. 3, 1943, during World War II, the U.S. transport ship Dorchester, which was carrying troops to Greenland, sank after being hit by a German torpedo; of the more than 900 men aboard, only some 230 survived. Four Army chaplains gave their life belts to four other men, and went down with the ship.

On this date:

In 1809, German composer Felix Mendelssohn was born in Hamburg. Congress passed an act establishing the Illinois Territory effective March 1.

In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln and Confederate Vice President Alexander H. Stephens held a shipboard peace conference off the Virginia coast; the talks deadlocked over the issue of Southern autonomy.

In 1913, the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, providing for a federal income tax, was ratified.

In 1916, Canada's original Parliament Buildings, in Ottawa, burned down.

In 1924, the 28th president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, died in Washington, D.C. at age 67.

In 1930, the chief justice of the United States, William Howard Taft, resigned for health reasons. (He died just over a month later.)

In 1959, rock-and-roll stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson died in a small plane crash near Clear Lake, Iowa. An American Airlines Lockheed Electra crashed into New York's East River, killing 65 of the 73 people on board.
