November 2016

Since I can't access my current photos, I'm taking you back almost exactly three years to our old home in the valley.  Here's a selection of pictures in our garden from my post of Nov. 21st, 2016.  In the meantime it's actually sunny here and there's no snow in sight, though it's still cold.  Great day for late November exploring, but not in a wheelchair!

Living out in the country at that time, real winter was usually marked by the first time the snow plow went by - though he's not throwing up much snow in this pass.  Just a gentle snowfall.


A busy day today here.  Physio in Owen Sound yesterday, and here at home this morning, so I'm just a little sore.  I think it'll be a Christmas card afternoon.  Yes, I'm one of the dinosaurs who still sends cards to family at Christmas, though we receive fewer and fewer.  It's wonderful to have internet access back on this computer, even if I can't upload my current pictures. 

I had fun this morning looking back through old posts and deciding to post photos from the past.  In fact I've looked back over a lot of my photos from the last 5 years recently, looking for pictures to accompany an article on geology that I'm writing.  I have a lot of great photos, and I've had a lot of great local adventures, so I'm inclined to repeat some of those rather than miss posting.  My days have felt strangely incomplete and empty the past 3 weeks!  I think my photography was much better back then too, so I think I'll just continue this and hope you enjoy it. 

Do you realize that there's only 4 weeks left as the days get shorter and shorter?  Yes, 4 weeks today the days will start getting longer again!  Hurrah!

  3. I love all of these photos. They are varied. That red in the snowplow is perfect against all the white. I can imagine how frustrated you are right now with the technological problems and the physical issues. Hang in there, I am sure some will get resolved sooner rather than later.

  6. Some people love the snow - us, not so much as you can tell by where we are. However, the pictures are still pretty.

  9. We finally received a bit over an inch of snow before dawn this morning. Not enough to shovel, but enough to make it look like winter -- beautiful.
