They are calling for snow again too, I can’t believe it that this weather just doesn’t stop this year. We have had some nice sunny days, but I keep seeing spring flower pictures being posted from the UK or down south and look out of our windows to see nothing but snow. I lie, we can see some grass now although it is a dirty, dead colour. Later: Yeah, it snowed. Matt said it is very cold. It’s pretty cold inside too as the heating is done by hot water so it too is not working.
Matt has to take his BP Monitor back at the crack of dawn (seems like that to me anyway). He also has a heart monitor on as well. It isn’t so bad for him as it was for me as his blood pressure is good and low so when it blows up the sleeve it doesn’t hurt him. Me it felt as if my arm was being cut off. This cost us another unrefundable $50 by the way.
I am very fond of beets which I always called beetroot until I came to Canada. Nor, I might say, had I ever eaten beet greens which I love too. This sounds like a very easy, delicious recipe from Food.com. One small problem, Matt is not all that keen on beets other than just pickled. I love them with sour cream too.
