There's been lots to celebrate in the last few days. A gold and silver in Womens' Bobsleigh. Gold in Womens' Hockey. Silver in Womens' Curling, after a heartbreaking last shot. Back-to-back victories in Mens' Hockey (which means we will get either gold or silver, tomorrow, playing the USA). A chance for gold in Men's Curling tonight.

Spring thaw has begun. Water is dripping from the melting snow on the roof, then freezing at night. The evestroughs (gutters) are plugged; the water is falling on the ground, leaving a long icy path from front to back of house —
and coating the back stairs.
It is a challenge for man and beast (or, in this case, Bear and Dog) to come and go in safety.
So, how do we get out for our thrice a day walks?
Hark! The kitchen timer sounds. The peanut butter cookies are ready.
