Another Favorite Place to Be

Well today was just plain cold! -45C with the windchill all day. The van was plugged in and I let it run for a long time, so after driving my youngest to school (after insisting that she wear her boots and warm gear..oh to be 13 lol) I made it in to work almost on time. My oldest used the van today which in one way was great, she picked me up and the van was already warm. This deep freeze is only supposed to last another day and then lift in time for the weekend, I sure hope so, I miss being outside.

I have work to do in the studio, but I thought I’d share some of my latest favorite pictures that make me warm…

Making Finn Pancakes, the recipe is from Erik’s oldest: 2 cups milk, 2 eggs, enough flour to make the right consistency and a dash of salt. I think the right amount of flour is around a cup. They are kind of like crepes.

The Sauna 🙂 actually Erik’s Sauna

Spring into the Deepfreeze

Sunday the temps were so nice we went for a hike. It was -4C which is warm for this time of year.

Last night it was so warm that we had rain, but then the temps were hovering around zero which makes driving pretty dangerous. Now they are predicting -40 C with the windchill overnight and now the wind is howling and its snowing. Hopefully it won’t last too long.

Sleigh Ride


Time to catch up abit.

Between Christmas and New Years we went on a sleigh ride at the Dell with some of our girls and family. The weather was almost perfect, I would have loved for it to be snowing but temp wise it was very nice.
