Wind and more Wind

I was reluctant to do the laundry this morning because of the high winds. My washer is electronic and I was afraid the electricity would cut out due to the wind. So far so good, we did not lose the juice ☺ I dried the sheets outside for the first time this year but it was a struggle. Every few minutes I had to run outside to untangle them from the line. I persevered and was rewarded with fresh smelling sheets for tonight's snuggle.
We had to go to Chemainus after lunch and since it was sunny it was a real nice drive. On the way home we stopped in Duncan. I had to try to return a spindle of Verbatim DVD-RW to Staples. I bought them last August but never used more than a few of them until a few days ago. I found out that just about every other one was coming up as "invalid disc" Hmmm. Since they were brand new I decided to see what Staples could do for me. Since I had them for quite some time they could not reimburse me but they would sell me a spindle for half price. I took the deal because I need them for our DVD recorder. Now I hope that these ones will be fault-free.
We were at Canadian Tire yesterday and bought enough tiny plants to make up 2 hanging baskets. They are now sitting on the south side of our balcony under an old boat windshield to keep them warm over night.
That's it again,
Good night everybody ☺

I love the smell of clothes dried on the line, especially sheets. I also like my towels line-dried - I don't care if they aren't soft, but they are at least absorbent! It's been a long time since I could do that, though.

The wind blew so hard here last night, brought some more horizontal snow!
