November 1st Musings…


Surprise! We woke up to a blanket of snow this morning and it sets the tone for the months ahead. When we get snow this early winter usually hangs on for the full seven months…

I can’t deny the beauty mother nature bestowed upon the landscape, however, it was a bit of a push to get to the studio today.


I shovelled for some time to clear the 25 cm that had drifted into the space between house and studio. I was not ready for this… but Colin was. the snow shovel was in its designated winter location right outside the screen door. Pushing the heavy snow aside was a workout by itself.

I am all warm and snuggly in the studio now and getting myself organized for the day. These days I am immersed in family history. With the recent loss of my great aunt who was two months short of her 102nd birthday,  I feel the urge to dig a little deeper into my maternal family story.

Best of all, I am celebrating this day: Great-niece Anni is one year old! I was greeted by a nice lineup of pictures from the family gathering her mom and dad had organized.


Her mom is quite the bookworm and it looks like Anni is following in her footsteps. 😉

My second reason for celebrating, today marks one year, 365 posts, on my Miksang and Haiku site. I spend time over the weekend contemplating whether I will continue posting. I am committed to approaching the challenge like last year, one day at a time. Thank you to all who have visited the site and clicked on the “like” button. It’s an awesome way to provide encouragement to a blogger.

    Fantastic day for a walk on the Rails to Trails. Still some colourful foliage, a busy brook and absolute silence. Husband in shorts. Doing our best to push back Winter.
