Blogmas Day 8


We woke up to falling snow today. It was a dark morning but we were warm and cosy inside our cabin.

On the table: Scrabble game from last night, a cup of tea, my current novel, pens and notebook so I could plan out a new crochet beanie, yarn from the O’Go put-up which I hand-wound into its separate colours, and a small piece of crochet which is the start of a hat brim.

My idea of heaven!

We did get out though. Being inside is made more precious by being outside.

We drove to a different small town and enjoyed a walk along a snowy beach.

We even found a bit of sun. And some frozen waterfalls.

And when we got back, we had a nice soak in the hot tub.

And now we’re settled in for the night and I have opened my Advent yarn.

Happy happy happy!

Blogmas Day 6



Yay, the day is finally here. We had a lot of snow overnight so the driveway had to be cleared twice before we set out. Ds1 couldn’t get his Golf GTi out of the drive at first so three of us were shoveling away like mad. He was already running late because he had to scrape ice off his windshield.

That was at 7am. We didn’t leave until 11.30 but traffic was still super slow going through the city thanks to the slippery roads. There were quite a few accidents this morning.

We stopped for take-out tea and for bread and “cheese” and bananas and then we were on our way properly. Thankfully we made it to the cabin safely and are now ensconced on the couch having settled in, stocked the fridge, lit the woodstove and enjoyed our first soak in the hot tub as the sun was going down.

We’ve been here a few times before. It’s private and quiet, just the way we like it.

Nothing says “Canadian cabin” quite like Tim Hortons mugs on a woodstove eh!

This is a photo-heavy post and the app is struggling to load them all. The wifi seems strong enough so hopefully it’ll publish okay.

Today’s vlog/podcast recommendation is The Orange Couch. Kate is a vegan who I “met’ through the Vegan Knitters and Crocheters group on Ravelry. She is relatively new to podcasting but is an experienced knitter and it seems like she finishes a sweater every week!

Oh, and I nearly forgot.

The light is a bit yellow in here but the yarn is yellow anyway (and the bead is light blue).
