February in "Winter-peg". It's about this time of year where I say, "That's it! We're moving. Sell everything!" We do make the most of our situation though. The river trail is one of the best places to spend a cold day. Here the frozen Red and Assiniboine rivers meet and form an ancient gathering place that still draws a crowd. In the heart of the city, we can skate or walk for miles, stopping in warming huts along the way or plan an evening out at the restaurant on the river. I took these few photos on Monday with my iPhone before it froze and shut itself off. When this severe weather breaks, I'll pull out my SLR and give you a proper introduction to one of my favourite winter hangouts. Nothing lifts your spirits more than some fresh air!
Hello there! We're still here! I've been working pretty heavily on a new project this month, which has been taking up a good chunk of time. It feels like the kind of month to buckle down in and to set ourselves up for a great new year. So far so good! The other day I got what is probably the most exciting news I've had in quite some time. If events come to pass, you won't believe it either! I'm crossing my fingers that soon enough I'll be able to share that excitement here on the blog.
In the meantime, my pet project led us to my friend Kyla Roma's house, and resulted in a visit with her pet, Ramona Hedgehog. Eve was thrilled when I told her we'd be stopping in for a coffee. Kyla let her play with her hedgehog lego set (yes, there is such a thing), pet Ramona, and stomp around in her heels (Kylas, not Ramonas). Whew. Very fun for a 3 year old. I thought this encounter should be documented. After all, it's not every day you get to pet a hedgie!
