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 start cloudy but clearing this afternoon. The high will be 8C(46F). UV index 3 or moderate.
Tonight will remain clear with an overnight low of -4C(24F).
After taking Abbey for her walk yesterday I opened the bakery again. This time I made fudgy brownies with peanut butter icing. It turned out great but a bit too sweet for my tastes. I'm sure it will be gone in no time. I should give the grandson a big piece and let mom deal with the sugar rush he'll have after. :) It will be good exercise for the pregnant lady chasing the already busy boy. Isn't that what grandparents are for. Payback time for all the roten things the kids did when they were young.
I took another shot at the cookoo clock but I think it's toast. I can either get the eascape wheel to move but it it's open to far and slips or too tight and it won't release. I think today if I can put a uartz movement in the grandmother clock. I have one in the hoard that might be able to swing the long pendulum as it has a place to add a counterweight. I'll have to make a small box and mount the movement in it to see if I can get the heavier pendulum to swing.
