I really haven't been up to a whole lot but the days just seem to whiz by. I am spending my time trying to keep warm, bake and run a few errands. We have another snowfall warning for tonight but I think most of it will fall overnight so I don't have an updated photo of what it looks like. The photo below is one taken after yesterday's snowfall. You can see the sky is quite gray.
Here's me all bundled in my Russian hat and my down parka. I don't have much opportunity to wear the hat. In fact it was the first time during this year. I got several compliments on it as I did errands at the post office and delivered a book to the neighbourhood library. In this photo my hat looks like a bushy hairdo, lol.
On my way, I stopped off at the health food store to purchase a new bottle of Aloe Vera gel. I stopped taking it for some time while I have been taking some heavy duty vitamins. However I found that Aloe Vera gel seems to help some small rashes that appeared on my arms some time ago and never went away. I have no idea what caused the rashes but they were clearing in patches by drinking a tablespoon of aloe vera gel in a glass of water daily. Since I stopped drinking it a few weeks ago there has been no further reduction in the rashes so time to start drinking it again and hope for the best. I don't like the taste of the gel so I dilute it with a lot of water. I also have some topical gel but for some reason can't get into using it.
When I stopped at the post office I found these books I ordered from Christianbooks.com
|These will help me when I study the Bible.
My long time readers will know that I very seldom buy books but this month I purchased 5. That is a record for me.
Last but not least are these lovely exotic birds from the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver.
They add some colour to the otherwise gray days here.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend!
