Just back from a week in Canada, near Parry Sound. It snowed. Pipes froze. Holes hacked in the ice, sauna baths. Eric and I hauled a lot of buckets of water, a lot of wood. Practiced massage techniques on our sore muscles. Argued over constellations. Some more photos here.
The truth is it was an emotionally draining week for me. I helped get my mummo situated in a nursing home. Have you spent any time in a nursing home? Then you know. I was wheeling one lady back from Bingo and she accused me of being a woman-driver. I looked out the window and obligingly commented on the snow. She said she wouldn't mind the snow so much - if it was winter.
