Just another day

Well really there never is JUST another day. We need to realize each day is a blessing from God. Oh, there are some days that don't feel like a blessing, some days are a matter of choice not desire.

Today is a good day. Above freezing, warm office, car and food. All other things are a bonus.

Cold but beatiful

The blanket of snow creates a stillness.
The soft fluffy snow shows the smoothness and grace of God's creation. Posted by Picasa

It warmed to -11

Just making a path to the alley and garbage. It is about 10 cm deep, light and fluffy! And COLD! Posted by Picasa

short update

We have been after Melissa to post so I will try to lead by example.

I have been trying to finish one project for a few days now Colleen has been trying to get me to finish for maybe 5 years! when I put it on top of everyday concerns for her health, Jay, Julie and Alex and Melissa it almost overwhelms me. Also I am not the world's best finish carpenter. Not the worst, but I like to do it myself and have the determination and not much skill. So it has taken me 3 years to get to where I MIGHT have the patience to use the skill I do have.

Oh please be praying for Lynn and Sylvia as they travel to Belfast, Ireland, oops Northern Ireland, to Jenn & Roger and David and Hilda with their mix of children and child to be. I think Jenn is due within the next couple weeks.

Saskatoon is a sheet of ice

Well this morning we had everything covered with a thin sheet of ice. Most has cleared now it is noon. I heard of several semi trailer trucks in the ditch and saw several bike riders picking themselves up after discovering that lateral stability is not good on ice!

Several years ago I talked with my friend Lee Barbour, engineering prof( now department Head), about bikes and cars winter stability. A bike has a better weight to contact surface ratio than a car, but the car wins with the protective cage and lateral stability every time!

It makes me desire Kaohsiung.
