Oh, that TV. Arghhhh! It is HUGE and HEAVY and the young lad lived on the second floor with a worse than typical Montreal outside stairs - so steep it was almost like a ladder. The reason he was giving it away was so h did not have to carry it down and put it on the sidewalk. I looked at it and the stairs and announced they were terrifying. Don't know that I have ever said that before. This very slight man and his even tinier girl friend started down - one step and YAY! a man came along who had some substance and the three of them carried it down to my car - where it remains. I drove straight out to Ormstown for the wonderful music. R came later in his truck but on time as he loves this group. Even bought another CD.

Sat was cold with snow showers. R read and I read and computered all day. I fetched in more stove wood. HE did not set a foot outside. Sunday we met with next neighbour and plotted more strategy re wind farm. Then we went to local eatery for brekkie - saw two folks we know. Nice to start feeling part of a community. R went to city to work and I came home to do more research. Bridge was closed to city after two pm so I stayed over.

Finally found some info based in Quebec. I got so into research, I lived all day on cookies. Could hardly get out of bed this am DIZZY and blick!! Managed some water with apple cider vinegar while reading in bed. After the second cup, I felt I would live and had a good brekkie. Toast with black bean salsa and then a cup of black bean soup.   Lovely day today. Roof dripping, just above freezing. Unknown neighbour dropped in to talk about wind farm and we exchanged info. EXC!
