Thanks God...

I am so happy that there is no snow on the ground yet.
A month ago I fell on the stairs outside of the place I live and injured by spine. I was rushing to the painting workshop in the morning carrying art supplies and... That was horrible... Pain was excruciating and I could not grasp my breath. Luckily, I had my cell in my pocket and I called 911.
I am better now, but I am terrified of falling again... so slippery winter conditions do not excite me at all...
Thanks for the sunny beautiful weather today.


  1. Hi Zina,

    I completely agree with you. Thank God for my
    snow tires, it was extremely slippery north of Hwy 7 today. There were lots of accidents.

    I broke my ankle over a year ago, and it still hurts. Snow scares me, but ice terrifies me. You need to get the boot ice grippers from Lee Valley.

    Talk to you in a few weeks.

    Take care, Barbara

    By the way, I do have a student who could assist me in doing the workshop you mentioned.
    We'll talk.

  2. Thanks, Barbara,
    A few people recommended the boot ice grippers. I will definitely take a look...
    Have a great time in Italy.
    Talk to you in a few weeks then.
    Take care,

  3. Hi Zina!
    I used to be a member of the DVAC until I moved to Nova Scotia 2 years ago. I'm also a friend of Barbara's.

    Those icers have saved my life here and this is a little video that I posted on my blog to illustrate what I mean>
