Temperatures in Ottawa are to hang around the freezing mark until about the beginning of next week and then get into the high single digits/40s. Spring is on its way.

Yesterday was a nice, quiet night. The gym was good for a couple hours. I am excited to do legs again very shortly. I'd been advised by my doctor to avoid it since I was having slight shooting pains in my knee. They've gone away. I'll start again on Wednesday. Lots of stretching helped take up my time. I have a doctor's appointment this morning for my knee. It's in its final stages of recovery, but I need a second/third opinion as to why it has taken so long. Hopefully this helps!

After the gym, Kim and I watched some TV. It was good to see the Bruins beat the Sens in a shootout. Then, the Kings beat the Flames, too. A good night all around for sports in our apartment. No plans for tonight, which is great. I really need to work on my assignment!

I hope everyone is enjoying themselves this week. Tomorrow we will all meet, once again, for our weekly adventure at the 'Pines. Even more special, it's the final gathering before St. Patrick's Day... who knows what that camel will have up his hooves. Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
Always nice to hear from you Brent. I pray your knee continues to heal. xo

Time to check out the other dentists who are covered by your insurance provider. Teeth must be taken care of regularly, and if you're afraid to even THINK about going to the dentist---something has to change. Even if your list of options is short, it sounds like it's time to check everyone else on the list. You don't want to stay with one who causes you pain and anxiety. Time to take charge!

I had to buy snowballs this morning! You Snowbattlers have been busy.

Another weekday to slog through ... but we got plenty done last night. We had some stuff to shop for, and found what we wanted.

Expecting some work to hit my desk soon, so I should log off and get my morning tea. Hugs, everybody ...

I don't have time to reply to anything, sorry! I did read over some post and praying for those who are ill and/or in pain.

Talking about Daylight Savings, not a fan either! I like when the clocks turn back, not forward. Never been a fan of it getting dark at 9 pm in the summer. It is what it is so I gotta deal with it!

Have a great day!

You have been in my prayers and will continue to be. I hope you keep feeling better. How did your Bruins do tonight? I will pray that LC feels better quickly. Sometimes I think colds are one of the worst because they are so draining. Hope all improves!
The Bruins won in a shootout, thank you for your prayers.
