Okay, so maybe Edmonton, Alberta’s not quite that far north – tell my chattering teeth; the deck thermometer is registering very much sub-zero temps. and there’s a wind-chill! Lot of Christmassy snow still hanging around – very pretty but makes Spring seem a long way off. Throw another log on the fire and curl up with a good book, or get back to writing the great Canadian novel, eh? Half-watching the Iowa primaries and trying not to fear the upcoming American election; is there anyone to vote for? Everybody seems so interchangeable…heavy sigh. Maybe I’ve just been too long up. Wonder if this blogging thing will turn out to be a hoot or a hassle. Hmm.
