That pesky groundhog.  I think his pants are on fire.

Spring has not quite Sprung!

First day of Spring. Yay!  

Ahh, the anticipation of warmer breezes and spring bulbs poking through the soil and some colour returning to the landscape.

Unfortunately, Alberta did not get the memo.

Maybe next week...

Or the week after...

Or maybe sometime around June.

Mmmm, ice-cream cakes

A Dairy Queen "pizza" cake with a "Skor" chocolate bar crumbled all over it, with added drizzled caramel.  My birthday last week resulted in this essential purchase.
I don't think they have Skor chocolates in the UK - so for the Europeans out there, it is like a Dime Bar - hard/crunchy toffee wrapped in chocolate.

Good God - I'm in the wrong job.  
I think I want to invent cakes!

D'oh! More snow!

The clocks changed last night, so that means it's nearly Spring, right?

Er, maybe not this week.

More scenes from Calgary and Cochrane in Alberta, after a wet and heavy snowy dump this week.

Work that body.
Or watch someone else fly past with their snow-blower.
Would you like some ice with that 
gin and tonic?  Just snap and go.
Good morning Calgary.
Good evening Calgary.
Hello Rockies.
And goodnight.

Linking to SkyWatch Friday, and OurWorld Tuesday this week.
