Good news twice! Oh and few pics for you snowbirds just to remind you what you are missing.

Where are we today ?
       Hey its Friday! Weekend here, do we care, not much anymore other than to stay away from most stores on the weekend. 
      My early morning cruise to Plattsville, lightly blowing snow and a nice sunrise as I head into town. Roads are pretty good and the snow ploughs pushing back the snow drifts from the road side. We actually prefer the sand drifts in southern California, almost the same only much warmer.
see the snow plough , blue light?
back to New Hamburg about 8:30 still blowing
         Now our poor car has never looked like this, it must be a huge shock, but still purrs like a kitten, taking it all in stride. 190, 000 kms  (118,000 miles) plus another 190,000 kms towed.
      Now got 2 pieces of good news today. 
      Number one : Suzie's Mom and Dad have a room available at the Retirement home of their choice, just around the corner in New Hamburg. They have been waiting for many years, so checking that out this morning.
      Number 2:  We are back in Ontario now and Suzie contacted our out of province insurance provider on Tuesday. A refund was deposited into our account this morning over $1,100.00. About 1/2 of what we paid = bonus!
      I worked on a few projects today, chat with my sister, check out our coach this afternoon, picked up a few items and the furnace actually fired up and ran for quite a while. Guess it does not like this very cold weather. Now tell me what good is a furnace that does not like cold weather? Maybe just protesting because we are not there?
      Suzie and her Dad at the Stratford hospital for the rest of the day, working with the powers that be. They do that and I do this. She sends me a text when they are leaving and I can begin supper prep, no problem there we are a team.
      Left over chicken in the freezer great for a chicken pot pie. One of our favorites. For the recipe check this out Easy Chicken Pot Pie recipe click here
       Quick easy and tasty.
just out of the oven
add a salad and we are good
          Now we have enough leftovers for another meal, perfect!
          Was a pretty good productive day here. Not too much more snow and not too cold AND a nice sunny day. Not shorts and T-shirts weather but hey its sunny.
         Glad you could drop on by for a peak again. If you are down south keep sending those warm weather pictures, please!

  1. I hope spring comes quickly for you and your coach and car as well. Nice to hear that things are progressing in the way that you want for Suzie's parents. We are back at Orange Grove, but will be home to cold weather soon enough. Promise to send some photos.

  3. That's great about finally getting into the place they wanted to. Suzie's dad probably appreciates her being there to help him and you being there to help both of them. Not so sure I'd be happy about all that snow. It's pretty to look at from Arizona but it wouldn't be so pretty if it was out our RV window.

  9. Glad to hear about Suzie's folks and the Insurance actually giving money back. They were probably kicking and screaming.
    We'll pray that it warms up for you soon and that you'll be back south next winter.
