Monday is the First Day of Spring

Tomorrow marks the First Day of Spring, March 20 th 2017. I’ve been blessed with temps ranging 3c for the past two days and the sunshine has warmed me back up to a normal human being. I feel almost 10 years younger now that I can actually feel all ten fingers…If, tomorrow is going to be similar to these past two days, well I might just get the feeling back into my toes as well!

I’ve been working on a beautiful love story set in Northern Ontario, Canada. The gentleman is a hard working sort of fellow, and his lady love is just as sweet as a peach. Please join them by watching a little short animation of mine.

Happy St. Patty’s Day

Wilson the coconut ~Plant manager has been doing a bang up job taking care of all my indoor plants over the winter time. We still have a ways to go before we can plant out in the garden this spring. Our last frost date isn’t until May 24th, but will have to judge the evening temps as I’m attempting to grow Okra and Cotton this year.

We both, Wilson and I wanted to wish everyone a safe and Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Join Wilson in the celebration, why don’t you…

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

Wilson The Plant Manager Has an Announcement….

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..

Good Golly Miss Molly

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.

Winter Crafting Journey – Creating a Griffin out of homemade clay

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

Wintertime in the City and Our Community of Ice Fishing Huts

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

The winds were howling the other night, or was it something else?

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.. 🙂
