Do you think that "flash freeze" is a real weather condition or that the folks at Environment Canada just made it up? We had another "flash freeze" warning last night. It didn't amount to much though. When we went to bed, it was raining. This morning it was a lot colder than last night but not outrageously so. I think that they are just making up things to try to make the weather seem less gross.

We're just having a lazy day today, so far. We actually slept in for a change and had a leisurely breakfast while watching Paradise Heights. I'd taped it from BBC Canada on Friday night. It was the 3rd episode in the series, we missed the 2nd but really enjoyed the pilot. The show stars Charles Dale, who we loved on Coronation Street when he played the (tragically) departed Dennis Stringer. It's great to see him in this. His acting is marvelous and I now see how it would have been a true waste of his talent to have stayed on the street, playing a mechanic, for years and years. It's not that there aren't good actors on the Street who have been there for a long, long (long) time but they seem to get into a comfortable rut and often aren't given the opportunity to really grow as an artist. Charles Dale as Clive Eustace in Paradise Heights, is just wonderful.

Anyway, I'm not sure what the rest of the day will bring. I got a lot of my housework type things done yesterday so I'm planning (at this point) to do very little today. Hope you're having a lazy Sunday too!
