Hoarfrost in the Morning

I woke up to a foggy morning and with temperatures below 0C, hoarfrost is everywhere.  I didn’t have to even leave my apartment to get pictures of it.  After taking a few pictures from inside my apartment, I decided to go outside to take more anyway.  Towards the Seine River at the back of the… Continue reading Hoarfrost in the Morning

Riding Mountain National Park – Day 2 continued

It seems amazing to me that I could be on a 2nd post for a day and I haven’t even had breakfast yet – but that is what happened on my 2nd day in the park this time. I was just leaving Graying Lake at the end of the last post, so there was the… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park – Day 2 continued

Riding Mountain National Park November – Day 2

I like to have breakfast when I get up, but I didn’t bring anything with me to eat and the restaurant doesn’t open until 7:00 am.  According to the weather forecast, the sunrise should be shortly after 8:00 am and at the speed I drive in the park, it would take about an hour to… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park November – Day 2

Riding Mountain Nation Park November – Day 1

The snow had still been holding off this year, which is very unusual for Manitoba, so I decided to head back to Riding Mountain National Park.  The days are so short now though, that I booked a room at the Elkhorn Resort.  Six hours of driving (3 there and 3 back in a day) pretty… Continue reading Riding Mountain Nation Park November – Day 1

Italian Crescent Casserole

Every once in awhile a recipe appeals to me and I decide to give it a try.  If you have seen any of my food blogs before, you will know that I seldom follow it completely though.  🙂 This one – found at Pillsbury is no exception.  I like to use recipes as a general… Continue reading Italian Crescent Casserole

From my Window

Last night, I noticed that the condos next door have Christmas lights on their trees  – so I took a picture.  I have to work on night pictures obviously, but here it is. This morning, I was looking at the dark clouds (our break from winter will soon be over), so I took cloud pictures.… Continue reading From my Window

It’s Been Awhile

It’s been awhile since I walked down the little country road on the other side of the Seine River.  I’ve started to go a few times, but it isn’t as quiet as it used to be as others have obviously discovered it.  When I see I am following people I usually go somewhere else, since… Continue reading It’s Been Awhile

A Day Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Nov 9

It is a long way to go for a day trip – although not as far as it was to Churchill for my day trip there – but the flight time to Churchill was less than the drive time to RMNP. Anyway – the weather here is just so gorgeous, that I had to take… Continue reading A Day Trip to Riding Mountain National Park – Nov 9

Flocks of Geese and Project Finished (Maybe)

This morning as I was sitting at my computer with my cup of coffee, I noticed (and heard) flocks of geese flying right by.  If I lived on the top floor, I’m sure that I could have almost touched them.  When they were still coming a few minutes later, I decided to take the camera… Continue reading Flocks of Geese and Project Finished (Maybe)

A Little Bit of Paint and a Walk

Wow – another absolutely beautiful day here today.  After breakfast, I was thinking I should go for a long walk, but then realized that this would be a good day to have my balcony door wide open and paint my filing cabinet.  I have been planning on doing this for awhile- but it has been… Continue reading A Little Bit of Paint and a Walk
