Saturday Stuff

We took the dogs out first thing, which for me today was after 9 am. Not 3 minutes from our house, it's full on winter. This photo was crappy, Kerry and Linus are in the shade and hard to see. I've 'improved' it with the Pioneer Woman's Heartland action. The rest of the photos are SOOC, but with my polarizing filter on my 50mm f1.8 lens, with the exception of the last one, no filter there.This is a dog, Kerry(waving) and me on the bridge across the river, which you can't see because it's covered in ice and snow.
I almost bit it just before this photo. Kerry had to use the facilities, which were surrounded by sheer ice. I was in charge of holding dogs. One of which thought Kerry went in the front of the box and disappeared so logic says he went out the back of the box which is on the edge of a cliff. Linus ran around to peek at the back side and I slid along with him, thank goodness he stopped at the edge of the cliff.
Everyone re-united with Dad. They are so happy the brown box thing let him back out.

I thought this was pretty neat, obviously so did the beavers.

I made fresh spring rolls and peanut satay stir fry for dinner. I could eat tonnes of these spring rolls. Which is a good thing, the deep fried versions sold refrigerated at Costco give me killer gas.
We finally started and finished repainting the door trim around some of the doors. We never finished them last year when we did the floors. The door frames were cream, the new trim is white. Which made us realize that the kitchen trim needs painting too, but that's another weekend.
I started trimming trees, Kerry took down the winterizing off the porch (plastic and 2x4s) so now we can see the neighbours.
And I got on the Wii Fit. I was pleasantly surprised to see that even though I feel like I have gained a bunch, it's only 5 lbs. since the last time I was on, which was over 100 days ago. Yikes. I did 30 minutes and then shot the crap out of some Rabbids on Rayman's Raving Rabbids Tv Party. Now my arms are killing me and I think I put my hip out (could be from walking cautiously on the death trap trails today.)

I'm so jealous. The Wii fit looks like fun! I can't believe how much snow you still have. We had a warm day today and the sun was out. No snow around here anymore.

It's a freak thing. 1/2 our back yard is grass, the other half is snowy, the front yard has piles of snow, with some grass closer to the house. The neighbour's front yard has Spring.

You've been busy girlfriend! I LOVE Wii Fit! My son bought it for his girlfriend for Christmas and the poor girl barely got to use it as we were on it all the time. My daughter then was on a mission to get her own. I'll be glad when she comes home for summer break...I can play again!!! BTW, strange weather you are having?!?!?
