Baby it's Cold Outside

And other random thoughts.

Winter is here, Kamloops is crystal clear and cold. We even had a bit of snow.

I had some great pictures of Paul and Filet playing hockey for you. I also had some great knitting photos for a while post on knitting for your reading enjoyment. When I went to download the pictures the camera told me in no uncertain terms that there where no photos on it. Worse yet, the camera said this, "memory card failure".

I only had about a dozen pictures or so on the card, but as it turns out the card has indeed failed and I had to replace it. Apparently it is not all that uncommon. There was an upside, I bought a 512 card to replace my 256 card for about a quarter the price what the 256 card cost me a few years ago. Now I have more memory (if only it were that easy to grow my own brain power) and will try to get more hockey pictures of Paul for you.

I also promise a knitting post for you this week.

We went to the Blazer game on Saturday night. The kids had a great time and the Blazers ended a 4 game losing streak by beating the best team in the league. They one last night as well but we did not go to that game. (I am going somewhere with this, I promise.)

We came home from the hockey game to the first snow of the season. Just an inch or so but enough to keep the kids entertained almost all day Sunday.

Sunday Paul went up to lift evacuation at Harper mountain and I stayed home and played with the kids. We had a great time, we played in the snow and then had some breakfast. We followed that up with a long walk around the neighborhood, playing in more snow and skating on the frozen puddles in our snow boots. We followed all that fun up with eating cold apples in the hot tub. It was a great day of spending time together and just having a good time.

I wish I could post a great snow picture for you here but I don't have one, I replaced the camera's memory card, but there is not to much snow left for you to see. Don't worry there will be more.

I'm sorry to hear about the card in your camera going bad. That sucks. Will found a great deal on a 1 gig card for our camera. We don't really need a 1 gig but some day it might come in handy.

I've had some trouble with my memory card. Maybe I sould pick up a spare.
