First Minus Night

Well, it reached -0.6 last night. It pretty much feels that temperature during the day although the thermometre says it's 4. I put the electric blanket on the bed (thanks for the gift, Laura!) because my feet were so cold. It's very soft...I love electric blankets.

We decided to go with cable TV for the time being. We don't want to turn into TV zombies, we'd both rather spend the winter doing more productive things or at least, less mindless activities. Our cable was supposed to be hooked up yesterday but it wasn't. I called and they told me to call again today if it still wasn't hooked up, which it isn't. I'd really like to watch some TV tonight since Jeff is off to Coral Harbour until tomorrow.

Orientation is still going well. It's a bit boring but what orientation week isn't? I know from our site meter that there are Rankin residents who read our blog so I'm a teensy bit paranoid all the time now that I'm in the presence of one of our readers. If someone looks at me a little longer than normal, I start convincing myself that they're one of the Rankin readers.

I just looked out the window and I see that the windmill is moving! Jeff was told that they locked it up because they didn't have the proper resources to do maintenance on it.

Well, that's all for me until something exciting happens!
