Retired and loving it. If I'd have known about retirement befor I started my 40 year career with the government of Manitoba I'd have retired first. :)

Today will be sunny with a high of -8C(17F).
Tonight will remain clear with a west wind at 20 km/h (12 mph). The low will be -10C(14F).
The Queen is going to fire Dorthy Domestic. After waiting 2 Dorthy to bake a cake she baked one herself. When I told her how I applied the icing the Queen said she's baked cakes longer than me. :)
I think I took a weekend off. :)
Today I have to put a new end on the cord for the Queen's block heater. When plugging in her car last night I noticed one of the wires was broken. For those in warmer climes a block heater keeps the engine warm by heating the antifreeze in the motor. It's a good thing it's been so warm and haven't needed the extra heat in the morning. I usually plug in the car when the fore casted low is below -18C(0F). I beleive I have an new cord end in the hoard. :)
I got Abbey out for a walk along the bunny trails but cut it short due to the strong north wind. I have a section about a 1/2 mile long along a n/s road. The trip south would have been good but the return trip would have been too cold for this guy. I'm turning into a wimp. :)
Today while the Queens at work I'll have to transfer the rest of her data onto her hard drive and see if I can get a wireless keyboard the daughter spilled a drink on working again. With the Queen and grandaughter both working I'll have access to the kitchen table witch is brightly lit by the sun.
My next project will be to create a wire loom to untangel the mess of wires behind my computer. If it works out well I'll build one for the Queen's new computer. When I set up the Queen's computer I came up with a good idea, I labeled the usb and cord ends. I'll have to do that with mine too.It sure beats following a wire from the device to the outlet when you want to disconnect it.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
