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 clear in the morning, then partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and rain. High of 21C(70f). Breezy. Winds from the WNW at 15 to 20 km/h. Chance of rain 60% with rainfall amounts near 2.0 mm possible.
Tonight will be partly cloudy with a chance of rain. Fog overnight. Low of 10C(50f). Winds from the WNW at 10 to 15 km/h. Chance of rain 40% with rainfall amounts near 0.5 mm possible. That's hardly enough to dampen the grass.
Yesterday after taking Abbey for her walk along the gopher trails I repaired a solar powered light which illuminates my house number. All it needed was to have the nicad batteries replaced. I replaced them with nickle hydride batteries which have a longer life span as they don't have as much memory as the nicads.
I also made some cjocolate rice cripie squares but when using a 1/2 to measure the amount of crispies to add to the marshmellow/chocolate mixture I forgot that I was using a 1/2 cup and ended up with a chewy rice crispie toffee. I was going to remelt it and add the other half of the crispies but my sister saud "Why It's good like this". It will now become a new menu item at the candy store.:) I wonder how many new recipies are made from mistakes in the kitchen.
today my sister and me will be attending the funeral of my step uncle as the Queen has to work. It must be hard for my step uncle's first family. Their mother, his previous wife passed away only a week ago.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
