Happy New Year to you all. I'm sitting here after shovelling snow .. it's been coming down all day and is piling up pretty quickly. I hobbled around on the deck with the shovel and managed to get a lot of it tossed over the railing .. light as fluff ... thank goodness. I sat here and thought I could change my blog background so I did what I usually do with blogspot and nothing worked only their templates so I chose (for the time being anyway) a nice beach scene that looks like I am back in Australia. Phoned some friends over the holidays and had long, lovely chats ... they are enjoying hot weather .. whilst we are freezing up here in Canada.
