A regular winter’s day

I’m constantly uploading the images from my iPhone to my computer and wiping my phone. I have a pretty strict organization system for my images and for what makes the cut. Obviously, my kid Grace is the exception to this rule. Just can’t have enough pictures lol.

This pretty much summarizes the content of my phone at any given time:

Dog Parkin’ It

Since we got Daisy the lil husky mix back in October we’ve been visiting the dog park more. Bringing Grace alone often proved to be a challenge, because other dogs would tend to gang up on her as they saw her blindness as weakness and I didn’t think it was worth the stress on her to do this.

Daisy, on the other hand, is a little scrapper when things get in the way of Grace and herself, so she’s proven to be quite useful at the dog park. No dogs have been picking on Grace since I’ve taken them together. Sometimes I luck out and it’s just the three of us there.

Here are some shots from today. There’s one that’s quite funny, you’ll know it when you spot it. I was attempting to take a picture of Grace and just as I went to take the shot Daisy jumped over her. I laughed so hard it made me dizzy.

My love to you all.

The end of summer?

Not a very creative title I know. While I don’t enjoy the heat, I’m afraid winter is approaching too quickly. Last October we had our first snowfall around the middle of the month and it stayed… we had winter here from mid-October to the end of May. There was still a lot of snow in some parts throughout June as well.

Here’s some photos from the end of August, and the very beginning of September.

I’ll be back again soon.

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;
