We moved

Speakers in the ceiling
nothing can be played yet, but we have speakers

bed is moved

supper at the new place

we laughed, it took Rien 14 tries to find the cutlery

Rien turned 63

we celebrated with a small circle

but it was still fun

Olga's timing was perfect
birthday gift arrived on the day

Roll up and start cleaning the floor

several times, the dust settles

2 days on a screen

last weekend I did a free 2 day course

It was interesting most of the time

the slides of one of the presenters didn't load
then it's just frustrating

Floradale hike

the Lion's trail is just over 7 km

fishers by the dam

we walked in the sun

there are even "facilities"

not very safe ice here 

it was a very nice hike

we parked in the church parking lot beside the feedmill

and ended with tea on the porch Covid style

Snowy Owl

At the crossing of the 4 and the centre side road
people were parking cars and emerging with cameras

so looking around Annette spotted the owl

turning it's head all the way to 
look at all the people on the road

love to see these birds
