Counting my winter blessings

Winter Blessing #1 – I don’t need to use an outdoor toilet …

… unlike the first 13 years of my life, when we didn’t have indoor plumbing. Sitting on that cold plywood seat was bad enough when it was only slightly frosted, but downright miserable when one of my brothers (who shall remain un-named) had failed to lift the lid.

I hated leaving our bush farm to move to Saskatoon, but I must admit that, when the mercury hit minus 40, I could see at least one upside.

On the other hand, I missed being able to pee on the snow.
