Today was another beautiful sunny day with a high of about 14C (58F). It was nice in the sun and we were even able to sit outside for a bit – a nice change from the last couple of days.

The last couple of nights the temperature has gone down to about -3C during the night so John has left the kitchen tap on a slow drip so the hose doesn’t freeze. This morning I woke up about 3 and had trouble going back to sleep and about 3:30 all of a sudden could really hear water dripping so got up to see what was happening, oh no, somehow the plug was in the sink and the sink was almost full to the top with water!! I can just imagine what kind of mess we would have woken up to if I hadn’t heard the dripping and got up to investigate (the plug is now out of the sink so it can’t happen again tonight!!).

We decided to have a very quiet day and really didn’t do a lot. John started refinishing the trim in front of the door, which badly needed to be re-stained etc. and I did a couple of loads of laundry – talk about a lazy day. I also got caught up on reading blogs and replying to e-mails. We walked around the park just as the sun was disappearing behind the mountain as we knew once the sun went away it would be cold again. Not an exciting day but an enjoyable one none the less. I expect tomorrow will be another quiet day as being a holiday it is probably a good day to stay off the road.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
