Fall that quickly became winter

It’s only the 7 of November but it feels like we’re in the middle of winter here in Goose Bay. We’ve had a crazy amount of snow (and still falling as I type). The Internet has been touch and go, and sometimes the lights flicker. It’s kind of funny considering a book I read recently by Waubgeshig Rice deals with just that.. what would happen in a small town in the middle of winter if it were to lose power and Internet; connections with the outside world. It was a really great read and I suggest checking it out. There’s a picture of the book below in my photos.

Recently Goose Bay held it’s annual Christmas Traditions Craft Fair which I always attend, and was not disappointed. Year after year many from around the area gather to share their talents with others. There were some superb crafts for sale this year, including sealskin Christmas trees made with natural or dyed seal skin. Very intricate and thoughtful work. I also stocked up, as I do every few months, on Spruced Up goodies.. it’s the only soap I have been using for the past 2+ years because it is SO GOOD for your skin.

I hope everyone is doing well! I am in the middle of a cold virus + uvulitis which is making my throat super uncomfortable, but I’m enjoying every cup of tea I can get my hands on!

Stay warm;
M.
