It was supposed to have warmed up today and be above zero. However, I do not see very much evidence of it. Although there is a little water running off of the roof.
I have updated the past couple of days weather forecasts by adding the actual high, low and snow on the ground to the previous entries. I should be doing that on a daily basis. That is if I keep adding something every day. I suppose even just putting in the weather forecast could be a step in that direction.
The renovations are slowly starting to wind down. The painters finished yesterday and the colours look, as Wendy would say, amazing. I didn’t get any photos of the paint scheme because I don’t think the colours would come out properly. Luc the electrician is almost finished, the pot lights are all in but he can’t put the covers on the switches and outlets until the kitchen is finished. Everything just has to fall in line and with the delay with the counter tops it has put that project behind as well. One thing did get fully installed today and that was the basement carpet. The basement is now fully carpeted, except around the washer and dryer and in the bathroom. The basement certainly does look brighter with the new paint scheme and carpet. We will put some of the cutoffs in the storage area to help keep the dust down and hopefully a bit warmer.
I will put the photos of the carpet up under the Renovations menu heading. Rather than have them scattered abound I suppose that is the easiest thing to do. Keep them all in one place.
In some of my previous blog entries I had started to do a bit of reminiscing about my time after the year 2000 that I had predicted I would never see. My latest idea is to have it as a menu item and put all of the entries there. Now it is just to get my bum in gear and do it.
When we were out and about shopping yesterday for some ice melter at the local Home Hardware there was a little ‘kitchen herb garden’ for sale. Three small pots with chive, parsley and basal seeds plus the growing medium. Well I just had to give that a try so now I have the seeds planted and will hopefully get some results. Brought all the potted plants indoors last week but I think the cold hit them pretty hard. Will have to keep an eye on them over the next couple of weeks to see how things go.
