“Country Corners: Where Stories Aren’t Too Fancy on January 10/2024”

Good Morning! “May your day be as steady as an old plow horse and as satisfying as a home-cooked meal.”

It’s not too bad of a morning, waking up in cottage country. The temperature climbing out of bed was sitting at -5.3 C | 22.46 F. However, we did have a bit of snow yesterday afternoon and a bit more through the night. Just enough that I have to wake up my snowblower. And if the storm that is closing in on us tracks the right way, we could see quite a bit more from Friday on into Sunday.

You know it’s winter here in Cottage country, when folks start layering up like they’re preparing for a trip to Alaska. Actually, I saw a lady at the store the other day; she had so many scarves on, she looked like a walking quilt shop. But it is winter, and where we live, if anyone gets snow, it is usually us. Anyway, what will be, will be.

On another note, yesterday, I worked steadily for most of the day on learning how to use this new camera I bought for taking YouTube videos. You would think they would make things simple, but they sure don’t. It was like I was trying to teach a chicken to square dance – not an easy feat, let me tell ya. But I am slowly getting the hang of things.

Today my lovely wife and I will be clearing snow, which will take most of the morning. I suspect by the time we are finished, we will be ready for another cup of hot cocoa. Looking outside it is snowing again, actually really coming down. Hmm, maybe we should wait for a bit till it gets it out of its system.

Til next time, may your flakes be light, and your paths be clear. GW
