Hi people of SooToday!

If you'd like to do a good deed today, I'd really appreciate it if you could help my friend out.

If you have Facebook, all it takes is a 'like' and a 'comment' to vote for her in the ugly Christmas sweater competition she's trying to win. And trust me, it's a prize winning ugly sweater she's sporting!

Here is the link if you're feeling extra helpful today :)

Here's a smaller link if that's easier:

Morning People...

It looks nice and sunny out there and with a little bit of luck the snow squalls coming off the lake will move north of me, and I can just watch them zip on by. What we need is some really cold temperatures, so the lake freezes and then we won't get the snow...

I have to go clear some more today, the back door is drifted in again, and I am hoping the plough has been along and cleared the road, it was pretty deep in spots along there yesterday..

After that a couple of nice hot toddies and I can hunker down for the day...

You all have a great day out there...

Bounder...

I have a lawn trator with a snowblower attachment, 3 passes and my driveway is done. The hard part is when the plow comes along and fills the top of driveway up, that's what takes the time. However I have to correct you, those snow squalls you said had moved, well they bloody well have moved back, I cannot even see the Island again and the wind is just drifting the white S&^% all over the place... The sooner the lake freezes the sooner this will all stop...
bounder 12/12/2013 2:36:14 PM Report

Mallet,
I did say that but I was meaning closer and the buggers are coming out of the west. We might get a break this weekend, I hope. This section of lake wont freeze until late Jan or early Feb.

Bounder ...

I know, but if the wind would drop for a few days and we get a little ice forming it would cut the snow down a bit. My neighbour measured 12 inches on the road and 14/5 on her lawn. However we do have a good plow operator, he is managing to put more snow on the bush side of the road than the driveways side.. for a change, normally they put 4/5ths of the snow in the driveways.. I must remember a Xmas box.

The wind has now shifted into the NorWest and the surf is really building up, however according to my weather station the pressure is raising slowly so maybe we maybe in for some decent weather albeit cooler..

C'mon RED ROOMIEs -

Suck it up, at our ages we should already anticipate the inevitable...WINTER

Hey you got a un-ugly sweater... what was that about... I could not care to help - it sounded to much SCAMMY

Any for me Celeste?

Good Evening - stay inside and drink hot choco & toddies, if you so shall.
celeste5 12/12/2013 6:10:57 PM Report

Seriously

Do you have a Christmas List,
If so you`ll have to send it to Santa.
I`am tired of canning, I did 27 jars.

I still have some baking to do.
Everyone is expecting their Christmas Goodies.

mallet 12/12/2013 6:49:24 PM Report

Celeste 5...

Well, if you are taking orders how about some jam tarts, mincemeat pie, cheese straws and some rum balls, you know the ones with lots of icing sugar and run in them?? I'll make a special run into town if you can fill the order...
celeste5 12/12/2013 7:46:40 PM Report

Mallet

Now, there`s an idea.

I use to bake for these two ladies and they paid me.
Maybe I should start taking orders.

Mamma took Christmas baking orders one year. She didn't get out of the kitchen for a month.

To this day if the TV accidentally gets tuned to the Food Network she breaks into a cold sweat and starts to babble incoherently
celeste5 12/13/2013 8:34:18 AM Report

Soowat

I`am behind in my baking,
I usually start the last week of November.
