Stove Top Macaroni and Cauliflower, Floral Motif Sampler, Scrappy Dresdens, Yuletide Blanket from Canadian Needle Nana

Monday morning's kitchen window storm view. 

There were numerous accidents, three of which involved fatalities. I'll never understand how things stay open here no matter the weather. 

We are completely cleared out now and the temperatures have plummeted -27C this morning; however, the sunshine today is most welcome. I did three bouts of shoveling keeping our steps and the veranda clear and was so happy that the old arms held up and no soreness. Ironically, I'm actually having little twinges in my right arm from the crocheting. Nearing the last round of my Yuletide Blanket.  It is ...

Wordle, Gail's Jewel Box, Wooliest Pin Cushion, New CAL, A Show to Watch from Canadian Needle Nana

 I have a bunch of stuff to share in this post.  

Have you heard of Wordle?  My sister alerted me to this new word game that folks have gone wild for. One puzzle is released each day and I won't talk about the details here; if interested you can read them yourself. The creator does not want to make money off it so it isn't an app. I think. Doesn't take long to do; I like it. If you try it, let us know what you think.

One puzzle a day found here at Power Language UK ...

Advent Calendars, Pears in December Sunlight, Applique Blocks, Yuletide Blanket from Canadian Needle Nana

 Besides being fleeting, the sunlight is not especially good sunlight these days. It is weakened and I think of how the sun is really so far away especially in winter for us in our corner of the world. We are careening, it seems, towards the 21st, the shortest day of the year. But the air is good. I compare it to the kind of air humidity creates which I complained about so much last summer and the air these days is superior even while cold. But as always grateful to be breathing still or topside as my grandparents put it ...

Three Stitchy Things, Yuletide Blanket, Hockey Boy from Canadian Needle Nana

I heard the Barred Owls calling Wednesday night, one to another from different parts of the woods. Hubby saw one on his late afternoon walk last week flying silently and low through the trees, low enough that Ned chased it.  Below is another shot from that photo shoot last month...a little better than the blob I showed you before.( I didn't realize I could "lighten" the photo; duh, always learning!) Beautiful feathers and that very dark staring eye. He was staring at me!

 We had a dash of winter and the pond froze over enough the neighbours' daughter ...

Yuletide Blanket, Creative Plans, Boys In Trees, Neddy Antics from Canadian Needle Nana

I really liked the contrast in the two colours above...the somewhat strange shade of yellow leaf that just happened to be sitting atop the vivid green mossy stump. 

Creative Plans.  While 2021 was my year of fitness, I'm hoping 2022 will have a more creative focus. I have loads of ideas including, of course, my stitching and photography. I've also been reading about creativity including how creative minds work, in hopes of getting some tips, LOL. Of course, there is a lot on the internet, but it's also great to be back inside libraries once again ...

Yuletide Blanket, Courthouse Steps Hand Quilting, Beef Stew Plans from Canadian Needle Nana

November feels a little like March as a month to me.  Here in Canada they're kind of marker months that just hold time between months with celebrations, etc.  Maybe I feel like that because in school we would have the fun of Halloween then time in between, November, before beginning the build up to the main event of Christmas. Celebrating these events with children during the school year is just the best feeling in the world and made the hard work of keeping up and matching the energy so worthwhile. 

 But for just now, next up on my agenda ...

Family and Movie Times Again and Yuletide Blanket from Canadian Needle Nana

This post was meant to be my Thankful Thursday one but life got in the way as we often note in Blogland. 

We are catching up on some appointments and outings that were postponed because of the pandemic so have been busy with outings just about every day.  

Littler grandson turned 8 and all the family got together for the first time in several years.

Our gift to him was drum lessons at the local School of Rock. He had his first lesson and enjoyed it. 

Being able to go to a movie with older grandson again is wonderful! Dune ...
