House showing went well, our printer died from the cold, and a wonderful hockey game tonight.

Where are we today ?
      Yep the mild weather went away. Cold this morning and even much colder tonight. Awe, shucks and it was getting much warmer day by day.
yep cold with wind chill -33 c (-27f) too cold here.
      But my morning cruise to Plattsville was a nice sunrise with white knuckles, the roads all ice covered, slow going only saw one car in the ditch.
nice sunrise through the bush too
     Back home to show the house to the first interested couple, still have a few more to go whenever that happens. If nothing comes of it here then it will be listed. 2 Days ago I brought our printer home from the coach and Suzie did get some printing done but today an error message. I spent a couple hours or so trying to resolve the issues but no luck. We have had it for 6 years and was free with my Mac, so no big deal. 
    Future shop has the newer model of the Cannon wireless printer on sale for $59.99 so whipped into Kitchener and picked up the new one.
parking lots are smaller in the winter, with the snow piled up
same as our last all in one wireless and worked great
 until it died
      Got the printer home all hooked up and working with Suzie's PC, and downloaded the drivers for my Mac. But ran out of time. Had people drop by to visit Suzie's mom and dad, so chatted with them for a while. Then time to whip up supper. Tonight a chicken stir fry with lotsa veggies and rice, using up some chicken and veggies and cold enough that I can justify cooking inside. Change of pace ya know.
very tasty and a small salad too
      After supper her Dad came back to work on a project and the three of us headed off to the Arena here in town to watch Grandson number 1's team defeat the New Hamburg team 5 to 1, was a fun fast paced game.
thats him there
excellent game
         Just another busy day here in the "Great White North" we will bundle up and snuggle for this cold night but all will be good in the morning.
        Glad you could drop by and add a little warmth to our day.

  5. Good luck with selling the house. Keeping warm is also a must but although you spent several winters in the desert, you don't forget how to deal with snow and cold.

  8. I see printer deals come up from time to time. It's almost cheaper to just buy a new printer than to source out ink for the old one. Six years isn't too bad. I think I'd still be using the 900 series HP that we took with up to Europe and back, except that there was no software available to drive it after I bought the new computer. Would have crapped out anyway I suppose.
    Bundle up!
    Is there going to BE a spring?

  9. Those temps remind me of my youth in Montana winters. They used to be common - year after year. But I sure couldn't handle them well now. But you do what you have to do and you guys sure make the best of it. Good luck on the house sale.

    1. The old one worked her for a day or two after it thawed our but then no more, at 6 years for a free printer we thought we did pretty good.So to the recycle place it will go.
