I have a connection! Tinc cobertura!!!

Blogger is blocked at work, and I cannot normally get on where we are now living, the signal is soooooooo slllloooooooooooowwwwwwwww!  But right now?  Lickety-split quick!

What have we been up to?  We've moved, to a funky cabin in the woods, with a lousy signal but lots of other good stuff, like quiet and time to read and hang out, all very good indeed.

I discovered today that I now float!  Never have before, it was a weird sensation!  Must be all the running, though I thought muscle sank and fat floated, not that I have ever been very fat, indeed I have never been fat at all, but I have, incidentally, lost some weight and one would think......


What else,

I was talking to the man about the wildlife we've seen in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) since getting here and it is impressive:

Squirrels, Chipmunks, skunks, raccoons, a fox, coyote, lots of rabbits, a hare, otter, turkey vulture, american goldfinch, frogs and toads, not sure what more, but I am sure there is more.....

I have been running a bunch, but all rather shorter distances till this weekend, when I managed two gorgeous runs, long and lovely and trails!!!! Part way into yesterday's the Man phoned me to say that it was pouring where they were, fortunately, it wasn't raining where I was.  Just a moment after we hung up though?  Thunder.  Cut the run a little shorter as the route back to the car was through a really big field....got back dry though, so that's good.

I have been writing a bit in gmail, and I will see if I can do timed posts as my ability to get on is so limited.  Sadly, I'm going to skip the Catalan version today, to try and get this up as it is so hard to get anything at all posted this year.

Happy summer time to you all!

Cheers,

O

I was going to suggest something like a mobile internet prepaid something. Then I remember this is Canada we're talking about... :p.
Yeah, guess you'll have to just "write it up when you can, copy-paste when you're connected". That's a lot of wildlife! I suppose that's a good thing, though. At least it's not a rats infestation.

Helen, it is generally a good thing indeed!

ElP, I was toying with that, but so far cut and paste is working, except I haven't time at work to do the Catalan version, which is super irritating to me, but what can you do. Indeed, at least it's not rats, some skunks are a little persistent though.
