Today, in the frozen land that is Central Canadian prairie, the daytime temperature made it to the
lofty high of -21 C, with a windchill of -29. Just a little frosty, and even that pales in comparison to Northern Manitoba.
I’m not complaining (okay, I am) but this is pretty much standard fare for these parts, where cold descends in November and dissipates in April, give or take a May blizzard.
Hence the preponderance of warm woollies in my Etsy shop. But just because it’s cold doesn’t mean we have to dress in ten layers of clashing woollens–no, we can be fashionable AND warm. And warm doesn’t always mean bulky either. With lightweight options like alpaca and llama, outerwear can be sleek and stylish.

The cows from over the Highway have been moved to the paddock just up from me. The other cows who live on the other side of the fence are so excited. The mooing going on is amazing. Such excitement. Hope the fence is strong. If only you could hear them!
I decided to leave my existing Title and Tagline as is. These are my connections and I am happy with these, at this point of time.
A great deal of thinking goes into setting up a Blog. My work colleague shared that she had done a course and as I want to continually stretch myself and keep up with today’s technology I am on the learning curve of blogging. I really enjoy reading, and reading others blogs is interesting and connecting over the world. A bit like pen pals from years ago, but instant. Fun!
I am passing on someone else’s words I recorded long time ago …..
“The Cobwebs of Connections”
String connects between past generations, weaving our lives together with each other creating friendships and travelling together.
An introduction so you know who I am. Sixty plus (just) years ago I chose a family in Sydney, two lovely parents and a sister. I was wanted and loved and taught good values and to have a social conscious. We lived in a practical, countrified home where doing work, creations, with our hands was recognised and valued.
The hats that I have worn, and some I continue to wear are daughter, sister, secretary, musician, wife, daughter in law, sister in law, aunt, Mother, divorcee, single Mother, teacher and creator of traditional crafts, gardener, business lady, permaculture consultant, friend, soulmate, lover and soon to be Nan.
I am a Sagittarian, a traveller who loves being on the move, but resting and recharging in the spiritual Yurt/Roundhouse my family own, photography, simple living, country skills, cooking and crafts, and history, amongst a long list of interests.
Why I am here blogging? Communication is so important to me. I want to continue to stretch and keep on learning and to share.
