I can remember when I saw my first potted orchid, about 20 years back in Peterborough, in someone’s actual home! I think they’re the most exciting thing to happen to indoor plants, and in the last 10 years have they have begun to be priced reasonably and readily available…this makes me very happy.
I went up to the tower to take a photo of the lovely fresh snow…and loved this reflection back from an opposite window while I photographed the scene. Crazy but great..
Walking near dusk…looks like we came to the end of the earth..
Nothing to be proud of, but I do, do, do love these chocolates…They were a treat at my quilting gild, and I kept hovering over them. A shameful admission and so early in the new year…thank goodness I didn’t make any resolutions.
Leaving this family of five was difficult, but I know that love lives with the five too and will help them manage well without me.
Almost forgot got how dramatic our views are out here, in home territory….how quickly we adapt to our surroundings.
This was about 4a.m. on January 1st…
…now by the look of 10 days later, we’ve both aged! Heading home tomorrow to earlier nights, but will be missing lots of things, especially holding Astrid and watching her grow and change before my eyes!
View from “my” bedroom window this morning..different from my home view, but also beautiful.
Will and and the boys making an igloo. Will made the blocks out of a recycling bin..now he’s “recycling” snow with it!
Forest on duty. Little Astrid, though she’s really big for her wee age, is a dream baby..so far, keeping fingers crossed.
Out to play today at Gaspereau Valley Fibres, a farm wool shop in the valley near Wolfville. First sighting…llamas and winter rose hips..
..second sighting, a “mess” of sheep…
…third sighting. Need to repeat frequently.
Forest lead me to the Irving Centre at Acadia…what a great sense of direction he has, which I sorely lack..
Forest showed me all around the greenhouses, opened all the heavy doors , then accompanied me to the snack kiosk where he had mint hot chocolate, pouring some into my coffee cup..um, not so great. But Forest was great company.
Talking on on the cell phone to Frank, while being examined by a wee lassie in my arms…
My my view from the bed I use at Jen’s. It’s Forest’s room but he’s happy to be sharing with his parents..so, I aget to sleep under the quilt I made for him and stare at the “I Spy” quilt I made for him when he was a babe..New Zealand themed. It just struck me, this “living” amongst my creations….and Jen being one of them too!
Inside on this blustery day, Astrid was fixated on Jen, and visa versa. So sweet.
Outside, the view from the kitchen window made it appear as if a stream ran behind the property. It was the snow melting, finding the hills and vales. I appreciated the illusion as I worked. Water, anyway I find it, is soothing.
