Wet s-n-o-w this morning, just a small amount, but still. The mountaintops around town are already covered and I'm dreading waking up one day this week to see everything white. Ready or not, here comes Old Man Winter!

I am DEFINITELY taking the truck in on Monday morning to get new winter tires. It's a big chunk of money out of my planned spending fund, but necessary. It's part of living in the North, where it's winter 8 months out of every year. You just deal with it and do what you have to do.

I did, however, change the auto-savings amount for my Canada Savings Bonds yesterday. I happened to arrive at the same time as the representative from CSB was there! Ha! He said I made his day, which is always nice to hear. I upped my bi-weekly amount from $10 to $35. Not for any particular reason, but just because it's that much more I'm not spending. I still have to look at my auto-debit for my EF fund, too. Should I leave it at $100 each month, or drop it to $50? Hmm.

Anyway, time for grocery shopping and other fun errands...

@psychsarah: yes, although nicer than some! :P

@dinah: thank you, but it's here to stay now. fortunately it didn't stick, but it will eventually. i'm only hoping it's a 'nicer' winter than last year (i.e. not so many weeks at -40!).
