Thursday morning, a little frosty. . .

Well.  Woke up to frost this morning.  The 1st of September.  Granted, it was on the rooftops, but still, it was there.  A chilly reminder that winter is not that far off.  Here’s a picture I’ve posted before of our lovely winters in Alberta:

It's not this bad -- yet.


We have had a couple of very cool days this week and today is going to be no exception — a forecasted high of 17 degrees.  Then cool and rainy tomorrow.  (I think my husband’s motorcycle trip may have to be postponed until next year.)  But, the weekend is supposed to perk up.  Hope so, for all the long-weekend campers.

My husband will be helping my son build a deck.  Not mine.  His.  I think the deal is if they get Landon’s done, then mine will be next.  Fingers crossed!

My daily schedule of house-cleaning has, so far, been a success.  I have a clean and tidy home, I’ve had a little bit of free time in the evenings and I’m getting to bed on time.  So, I’m feeling pretty darn special right now.  Like, wow, look at how organized and efficient I’ve become!

Of course, I haven’t gotten any writing done — I did look up a couple of contests and got caught up on a couple of e-newsletters I subscribe to — so I’m counting that as productive, creative output.  There’s always next week.

I have to figure out a way to squeeze in some extra exercise time.  I need to be doing some weight-bearing exercise — in order to head off osteoporosis, you know.  I walk every day so I’m on top of the threat of Alzheimer’s.  I have all but eliminated most processed foods from our diet (there are a few things left over from previous shopping trips — I won’t throw out food, but we’re almost there) so we’re eating more healthy and feeling much better.

All in all, I’m being about as positive as one person can be without coming off as crazy.

Here’s to new starts, and positive thinking.

    Ah, good for you, Kath. Feels so good when we can pull off something like you are accomplishing.

    Brrr. I cannot believe how quickly the weather turned cold. Boy, we are going to have to keep an eye on this planet of ours!

      Yes, I’m wondering if we’re moving into a new ice age. It’s been damn cold here all week. This weekend, however, is supposed to be lovely. I think that’s the biggest problem — there’s no consistency to the weather patterns.

    Impressive stuff, Kathy 🙂
    Frost! Gracious. Already.

      Yes, sigh. Will have to bring the few tiny tomatoes I’ve got in to ripen.

    I would move to Canada in a heartbeat if it were not for that frost thing. So I go to the California desert in the winter and enjoy all the Canadians and sunshine!!!

    That’s a gorgeous picture.

    We had a touch of frost in August here in the UK. Ridiculous. 😦
