We didn’t plan very much so we spent the night wandering around between the exchange and the forks, slightly confused and lost.
Marching while the world burns. Our children take to the streets in a stark reminder that those who can effect change the most, won’t be alive to experience the impacts of climate change.
We went to steep rock with some friends we hadn’t seen in a while for labour day weekend. It was warm during the day and we lazed around. I got to be fire manager (yes!). The wood was damp the first night and we spent a disproportionate amount of time blowing on the fire as […]
I missed Rainbow Trout Music Festival last year. I was in Nova Scotia at White Rabbit Residency during the festival last year. My partner and I went to Rainbow Trout four years ago, it was one of our first multi-day events as a couple with other people. The Big Test. I saw the northern lights […]
The childhood nostalgia of another, and a new edition to the family. My partner’s childhood lake and a newborn neice.
A welcome slowed down pace. I love when I can find materials in my immediate space. Well, I can always find materials in my immediate space but they look different in the forest than they do in my apartment in the city, don’t they?

a steep hike with a view, a beloved friend who lives far away, and my partner in crime. Lazy meals over a campfire. Days stretch on like a cat in the sun.
I love playing with weird materials, trying to figure them out. Some dollar store ball pit balls. Needle and thread? nope, too rigid. Using interfacing and the end of a hot glue gun to grommet them? Works like a charm. the shape controlled by the orientation of the balls in relation to each other. This […]
We got the car stuck when we stopped to take the outdoor photos. The weather had warmed up, and we sunk down a few inches. The car wheels kept spinning. A kind stranger who knows how to push a car out helped us push it out, and we were back on the road in ten […]
A polar vortex travelled through the Praries, Western Ontario and parts of Alberta and through the United states. This is my first experience with sub -50c temperatures. It looks quite surreal: bright and sunny, icy, dry, and misty. Condensation comes from anything that is warm and moist such as car exhaust, bare skin, and buildings […]
Extreme Cold Warning: Clear. Increasing cloudiness overnight. Wind north 20km/h light early this evening. Low minus 31c.Wind chill near minus 41c. Frostbite in minutes. Taking an ice drive to McCreary Manitoba to facilitate a natural dye workshop. I had to put the supplies in the back seat of the car so the supplies didn’t freeze […]
