Progress on the home front
Mom's condo is getting a final cleaning. Met with a realtor on Saturday and got it listed. The realtor asked if the listing should be for one year or more. I told him if he wants the listing he has six months. If nothing happens in six months then I will look for anther realtor. I figure that should be enough time for something to happen. Met with the condo board as I had to get some new codes to get in the building. They were being changed for security reasons. Had a good visit with mom. I believe she is starting to like living in the retirement home. She must like the food, she is not as thin as before and looking healthier. That might be part of their strategy, get the residents too fat to make a run for it.
Sunday I had the day to myself. I took a drive for the day and enjoyed the solitude.

Abandoned Alberta - Paulus RC Church and Cemetery - June 2022

The Roman Catholic Church on this site was built in 1910, replacing the previous church which burnt down. It only served the congregation until 1919 when the building was sold to the local School Board and served as a school until 1958. It is in a sad state of disrepair now and is full of trash. The single grave marker in the adjacent cemetery is for Michael Schmaus 1851 – 1915. Photographed in Jun 2022.

I learned something from my weekend trip
This last weekend was a long weekend with the Monday being a holiday. I took a quick run to Ainsworth Hot Springs in British Columbia for two nights. Food in their restaurant was very very good. The hot springs were enjoyable. It was overcast and a little rain, then again it is February.
I frequently check weather reports if I am going anywhere in the winter. There were no issues until I woke up early Monday, checked the weather on my phone, and noticed there were heavy snowfall warnings in the afternoon for where I was staying and the route I intended to take back. I had intended to go north through Nakusp, Revelstoke, Golden, Lake Louise, Banff, Calgary, then north home. Even Calgary was listed with a weather advisory. No such listings for going back the way I came, so I crossed the ferry at Balfour, then to Creston, Cranbrook, Crowsnest Pass, and north on Highway 2 home. I ran into a snowstorm in the Crowsnest Pass, weather got better further east, the rest of the way was some falling snow and some reduced visibility. It just took longer. Otherwise a fine trip.
While at the resort I ordered a gin martini because I have never had a martini before and thought I would try one. I learned I do not like martinis.

Another one lost
I just posted this on February 13, 2023. I drove by this place on February 11, 2023. A few people messaged yesterday me to tell me that it was a total fire loss on February 13, 2023. Two days after driving by it burned down.
