So my overcharged mandarins($2.13) returned to being super cheap mandarins (.93) and then they were free! Even nicer that Mom and I both got this freebie- she had quite a few more mandarins than I did.

In other news we did get snow but as the temperature dropped below minus 5 degrees Celcius the snow that came was light and fluffy and we only got about a half an inch so no shoveling - nice because hubby is still sick and it would have been me shoveling as I am back to feeling 90% better. I am not complaining, many have bitter cold temperatures right now in Canada and the US and would love to see our temperatures. The only thing I wish is that the hummingbirds had somewhere warm to go, I really wish they wouldn't stay her year round but I have been bringing in the food every night and putting it out every morning so it doesn't freeze. I have two that eat at my feeder regularly and one was chirping away at me (they chirp like a fighter jet) when I took Buddy out yesterday. He is staying very close to the feeder all day long. Obviously he needs calorie high syrup so I made up a batch of super sugar infused bird crack and they are guarding it ferociously.
Flowers generally start blooming here this time of year, things like crocus and snowdrops - which is why they stay. We have daffodils and tulips in late February and March. It generally feels like Spring here much earlier than the rest of Canada. Even though it was cold it was sunny yesterday Buddy kept asking to go out since he is a sun seeker. When I was making supper I forgot him out there - a firm loud single bark indicated he was waiting at the door and wasn't happy about being left outside.
My goals this week are to get further along with our new corporate website, take our corporate year end to the accountant, start uploading information to turbotax to see how much we need to contribute to RRSPs before the end of February to alleviate any tax bill and to go to Moms to do a decluttering. I am also doing a declutter at home - so far I have thrown 4 items out that had no life left and sold 10 books on our bidding site, money goes into the fishing fund. You have to start somewhere!
