A photo/video journal blog. This is now a no-comment blog. Thanks for stopping by!

Day 30


Today is the last day of my month long daily blogging. It has been fun to do it again.
I thought I would end with a video. Last week we gave my husband a drone for his birthday. This is a short video my son took from our back yard, over the house and of our surroundings.

Day 29



A bit hard to see, but in the sky there are 2 of the Snowbird jets in for the Grey Cup in Winnipeg (the championship game for the Canadian Football League), about 10 minutes before there was the rest of the team, but I missed getting a photo.

Day 17

Other photos that look more like spring than mid November -

Poppy seeds have germinated (I hope there will be some seeds left for next summer).

 A rose growing well and getting ready to bloom.

Looks like a lilac is ready to bloom too.

It will be interesting to see how things will be in the spring.

Day 16



Mid-November in Manitoba and there are still flowers blooming!

Day 14


I recently won a set of double pointed needles and discovered that they make perfect cable needles (so pretty, and they don't get misplaced).

Day 13


Finished knitting a pair of socks with wool that I dyed and spun.

Day 12


Something new for me, thanks to a Craftsy class and a new piping bag/tips - peppermint kisses meringues - delicious!

Good day for putting everything away for winter.

Day 6


We visited my parents this evening, and this is the view from their condo.

Day 5


I finished knitting a cowl with beautiful yarn all the way from New Zealand!

Day 4

More of my new baking/cooking hobby - cheese and spinach soufflé.
Last month I bought the Craftsy month pass and tried all kinds of classes to learn new things - this was definitely new to me (and much easier than I thought a soufflé would be), plus it was delicious.

Day 3


Of all my hobbies, baking is the one that my family takes an interest in (this is an apple pie).

Joanne

Day 2


It was nice to finish our Christmas shopping before the mall was packed for Christmas.
We don't do much shopping.
