Photo Challenges

For a year starting around the end of 2016, I participated in a photo a day challenge.  It was fun, so I decided to repeat it, this time starting on January 1st, so there was a more distinct start and end to the year.  I am not repeating the pictures – just the challenge, which… Continue reading Photo Challenges

December Word Cloud

Depending on where you are in the world, December can be winter or summer, but chances are that you celebrate a holiday and spend time with family wherever you are.  Here in most of Canada where I live, we can be guaranteed cold weather with snow.  Thanks to Tagul – Word Cloud Art  for this… Continue reading December Word Cloud

Just 10 Days Until Christmas

Wow – time flies when you’re having fun. I wandered around St. Vital Centre and took a few pictures of the Season. The main attraction there is Santa Claus. When it is busy, the lineup to visit Santa goes over the bridge and fills the area behind him.  It was very quiet when I was… Continue reading Just 10 Days Until Christmas

We had an… Continue reading Chester and His Christmas Present

One Week til Christmas!

Wow – how is it possible that there is only one week til Christmas and two weeks until it is 2013? Obviously it happens every year, but it really snuck up on me this year.  🙂 My error detector says that snuck isn’t a word.  I’ve always used snuck, but maybe it should be sneaked? … Continue reading One Week til Christmas!

Winter Solstice

Today is December 21st – which is the shortest day of the year here – along with the longest night of the year.  Winter Solstice it is called.  The good news is that the days will now start to lengthen by a few seconds each day!  🙂 Of course, we don’t really notice the days… Continue reading Winter Solstice
