You guys cheer me up and cheer me on!

Plants to outside: I have tiny sweet pepper seedlings (from the pepper that grew this winter in Bathroom) on the rad in den south window; the tomato cuttings are doing very well in a west window; one has a tiny tomato! and the plants themselves are still in the west LR window. Doesn't everyone...? Less than two months to the equinox so along about April I might do more cutting back and rooting. There will be plenty of cherry tomato plants to put outside in late May. In Toronto, nothing tender is planted before Victoria Day.

I have discovered that Cyclamen need cool semi shade so they are now in the pantry north window, the coolest spot other than the unheated bedrooms and there are no plants in them as it may get very cold. minus 16 C outside today. Both schefflera look like they are getting used to new home.

I too am still getting used to new computer, after two calls to applehelp and one short training by phone; she sent me some emails to help out; I will look at them when I have the mental energy. Finder is a mess!

I really need to get to Beaver but no energy and R cannot take time off. I will put a notice on the Bancroft area ride board to see if there is anyone in Montreal wanting a ride to Bancroft. Slim chance.

Managed to eat less junk yesterday. Stairs and watering plants are my exercise! Even if the outdoors were safely lacking in ice, I cannot see myself going to a so-called health club sort of thing. I shall keep an eye out for someplace convenient, then check it for toxins in the air... OR go up and down stairs a LOT! Until it is safe to walk around.

Concerned about coming storm; no real firewood yet and R has been in the city for two nights due to vehicle non-function. I suggested time for a newer pick up; "I like driving this one"; I did not shout, "But it is not drive-able!" GEEZZZZ! He might rent a car today but that precludes picking up wood. The weather does not wait on his convenience!

In the meantime, I am staying safely in the house, where I might get up the inclination to do more than watch TV/read. The squirrels did not come out today. I have started making observations about their hours in yard and not in yard. Weather seems to have an effect and if I work it out, I could read their predictions.??
