Wonder of wonders I found the lost hearing aid. I was in the hoard looking for something and I stepped on somehing. It was a small piece of wood from one of my carving projects. When I bent down to pick it up there was my hearing aid next to it. The hearing aid is so small I never would have noticed it in the clutter of the hoard. I changed the battery and it works fine. If someone had of stepped on it with shoes on it would have been a a goner.
With the mild temps today I'm going to try and repair the snowblower. I think I have some insulation in the garage to kneel on so the knees won't freeze on the cold concrete. I remember changing a belt before on it myself , if needed I'll get a friend to give me a hand. With more snow in the forecast and the snow from the other day not completely packed I'll probably need it. I have a friend with a heated garage and a truck I may take it over there for repairs if there's room to work on it. He's currently restoring a 1956 Dodge pickup and the garage is full of parts he hasn't installed yet as well as the truck itself. It's too bad I wasn't still working I could have used the heated shop at the Portage diversion. I may phone and see if it's available and not being used to store the Bombardier the survey crews use in the winter and for transportation during flood fighting. All in all everything will work out well on the prairie. The SIL was busy all weekend spending time with his family and working at his own business of repairing cars for others. He sure is a hard worker with a full time job repairing semi's and with his own business on the side!
Yesterday on my hike with Abbey I picked up a small wed top beside the road but the thing crumbled in my pocket on the way home. I'm going to have to bring a small container to keep the fragile dried weed in until I get home and make a shrub with a small drift behind it.
Gotta go now and have my morning chat and coffee.

Great to hear you can hear again. So glad you found it intact instead of feeling a crunch.

Good morning Tony. What wonderful news you found your hearing aid...Sometimes when you think something is gone, low and behold, its there...Gotta have a talk with those spooks who move stuff around like that...LOL Been up since 4:30 but the eyes are starting to get heavy. May have to go back for a snooze before I head out grocery shopping. Just don't have the energy like I use to have 30 yrs ago...The old gal is slowing down...

Well anyway dear one, have a wonderful chat with the Queen and enjoy your day.
