AHHHH! Winter is finally here

What a wonderful sight to wake up to
We received about 14" and I couldn't have been more pleased, even though it meant a lot of shoveling.

The 2 humps to the right of my car is, my snowmachines, I will get them shoveled out soon. Now that Winter is here, I become alive and it's time for soups, stews and casseroles. Mmmmm! good.

I spent today shoveling and cleaned my stovepipe, speaking of which, I am really enjoying my new woodstove. It works great, I am using less wood and getting up way less during the night to feed the stove.

Once again, I made a great buy on a stump grinder, no more cutting stumps by chainsaw. I paid $100 for it delivered and it works, imagine that, lol.
Pretty impressive, eh? I love it when a deal comes together. Here are some pictures with the oil lamps going.

This one is a battery operated light.
Well, that's it for now, I will be posting more now, that Winter is here. Take care.

Happy days, Winter has arrived. (I hope) 😄

Hi everyone, yesterday, got our first snow and pretty much during the night and I couldn't be any happier. Woke up to a great sight this morning.

I celebrated with a good breakfast Caramel flavored Dunkin Donuts coffee.
I was hoping to have a special blog for everyone but, it didn't work out. I friend of mine called last week and told me, he had bought Supercub PA12 on floats and we planed to fly out to mmy remote cabin yesterday, Sunday. So, I gathered some things together to take to the cabin. Well, Sunday morning he called to let me know that his lake had frozen over during the night. Yep, just how my luck runs. Anyway, he will wait a few days and see what happens. If it stays frozen, he will take the floats off and put wheel skis on and we will fly there when possible. It was close.

I am feeling really good, now that Winter is setting in. My favorite thing is to wake up in the morning when it's snowing and drinking my coffee. It is so quiet. I am finding myself watching less tv these days and reading more and listening to radio. I am trying to use my generator less and live a more quiet life.

It's 10:40 pm and I am a bit tired so, I think I will turn in and see what is going on tomorrow. Take care
