Tonight will be partly cloudy as the temp drops to 1C(34f. The wind will remain light from the North at 5 to 15 km/h.

I got some yardwork done yesterday. A peony plant was cut back and leaves raked from under the stems.
The Queen played with her new toy, the tablet, after I installed a couple of games on it. It may be that I've created more work for myself with the Queen playing games and the granddaughter texting.:)
I also dug out an old e book reader the Queen had bought and tried to remember how to make it work. Besides being an E book reader it will also play MP3s and movies in AVI format. I can download audio books in MP3 format from the CNIB library or watch movies on it at my next hospital stay. With the electronic toys on hand I won't have time to chase young nurses up and down the hallways with my IV cart dragging behind me. :)

How are the nurses supposed to stay in shape if you aren't chasing them? :)

You can always hide the Queen's tablet(at your risk) if you feel you are doing too many of her chores! :)

We got down to 37F last night here; are you sure your fans are off? Must be Mush's, lol!

Good morning Tony. Love the idea of a composting centre where such can be taken and then replenish their yards with once it has all composted. Wish they would do that in more cities. Lots of folks with gardens would be more than pleased.

Have fun getting your toys ready so you can sit back and enjoy them. Sounds like you will have all bases covered...LOL I am sure the nurses will miss your "chasing" though. It helps to keep them fit.

Have a great day dear one. Gotta take the trash to the road but oh it looks cold out there this morning. Still at 47F at the moment....burrrrrr
