There are those times in ones life when you crave food from your childhood memories. You know what I mean, those dishes you ate when you were a child that you can now as an adult still smell deep in the recesses of your memory banks. Actually, you can also remember more than just the welcoming smells coming from your families kitchen.. You can relive days long gone with what I’m about to cook.. Enjoy
There are days when you just can’t get anything to grow in your garden. Aside from the critters that love to munch on your tender seedlings in the Spring. Why am I mentioning Spring so early, well it appears lots of folks are getting spring like weather all over the globe. It’s even raining here in February, which it never does.. Well, not in the 34 years I’ve lived in Canada.
There’s something strange afloat around here too, I have 5 pineapples that I began growing back in September, after a gardening challenge was made by one of my wonderful YouTube gardening friends. Here’s a look into what my world has been for me this winter, trying to trick pineapple tops to grow in the dead of winter in Canada and have them believe it’s Hawaii..
Sometimes, mother nature will throw you a curve ball.. Even if it’s not spring training yet…My pup knew early this morning that something was up and she didn’t like it one little bit. The wind began to howl and she began to slowly pant. The thunder roared across the sky as if a freight train was going over the house… My pup began to pant heavily and shake. I rose from my bed to see what was the matter, and didn’t find St. Nick atop the roof, but what I did find was something resembling popcorn bouncing off the rooftop.
This winter has been a busy one with all of the daily shoveling of snow. But, the last three days we’ve gone from temperatures ranging from minus 25 and 30 Celsius to minus 16 and 9 Celsius. I’ve never seen weather temps this warm in February in all the 34 years I’ve lived up here in Canada. We had freezing rain yesterday, adding to the melting of the 8 foot snow bank on the side of my driveway, down to about 6 feet.
Today it’s suppose to begin snowing again to continue on with our winter time weather. Let it snow, let it snow… Because I’ve been crafting in between shoveling the white stuff just to keep sane and happy .. here’s a preview of what I’ve been up too lately… Enjoy
Sometimes, you just have to brave the utter cold and Gail force winds to see the beauty that is a true Canadian Winter. I tip my hat off to all of the brave souls who venture onto this frozen lake and sit in the Ice huts to fish during wintertime. I’m still a chicken little and have not walked over the frozen lake yet… and probably will never do so. I’d rather swim in the lake during the summertime, instead.. Enjoy, this little video of my Canadian Winter… hugs
Here’s Part One, a few days before…
Hi there folks, I’m still sitting at the computer with cold frozen fingers pumping out yet another animation creation. I am having so much fun with this new hobby of mine I could actually dance in the streets, if they were not so icy…..Enjoy what’s to come….
Oh and if your wondering what happened to Animation Number Four, it’s still in the works…Coming soon to a computer, Laptop, I Pad, Cell Phone near you.. 🙂
Come on in and check out what I’ve been up to today… The weather is still frigid, so I’ve been animating again.. Enjoy…
Well folks, Mother nature has put us back into the deep freeze ~ Today it is in the minus thirties again, and I’m not going outside! I’m not sure why the first animation after uploading to YouTube was so tiny. This second one I think shows larger for you to see as I travel along this path of trying to remain sane during this cold snap here in Northern Ontario , Canada.
Man it’s cold outside! We’ve dipped back into freezing temperatures. We were spoiled last week with milder temps, ranging between -9 and -5.. Oh well it’s still wintertime in this city of mine. So, I got bored on Sunday afternoon, you know between the time I shoveled the driveway and time to begin dinner.
Here’s a little sample of my very first attempts at simple animation… I think I’ve found a new hobby to get me through winter in between the days I’m waiting on the cold porcelain Griffin to dry between layers..
Sometimes you wanna have fun!
With pointed fangs I sit and wait; with piercing force I crunch out fate; grabbing victims, proclaiming might; physically joining with a single bite.
What am I?
