Happy New Year!!
Hope you are all well and enjoying the rising of the sun. I have been feeling very content with a general good feeling about times to come. 2017 was a very big year for ourselves and my family and I am so excited and honestly just motivated this year!
This winter has been strange as anything. We have been bombarded with frigid temperatures that keep you inside for days. Breathing is difficult, my lungs grasping for air in the face of arctic winds! The river was completely frozen. Just the other day, as I was walking Henry through the fields to the river, I saw snowmobiles in the middle of the river, darting all over the ice like flies on south-facing windows. We even saw some seals hanging out, lazing on the ice in the sun.
Today – today was 13 degrees Celsius… fog rolling up the river that has completely melted. My boots sink in the mud and the animals need to be wiped down with a towel when they come inside. We took advantage of the lack of ice and mild temperatures to bring wood in today. Tonight we are expecting freezing temperatures again and for the foreseeable future. I would love a good snow storm…
I just wanted to share with you a couple of photographs from the past couple of weeks! I have been totally absent from social media and strangely excited to get back into the swing of things. I will have to ‘upgrade’ this website soon and hope to just be more active with getting my art available again. I have been busy working at the central library branch in town and just other things that I don’t even know really! I feel like I’ve been saying this for months but I honestly sense a change.
And I apologize for the overload of Photographs!! Tomorrow I plan to post again so I can keep up with having more trimmed and neat posts that consist of one central topic (like this weekend – oops might be a little broad but less so than pictures from the last 3 weeks). The Etsy shop will be updated tomorrow along with this little blog here of mine).
Thank you everyone so much for your time and positive thoughts. I wish you all a very blessed New Year, full of creativity, joy and peace!! I’m so excited to share more with you and hope you enjoy one of my favourite renditions of favourite medieval song : )
