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.
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 […]
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 […]
One of Winnipeg’s best free summer festivals is Jazz Fest at the Cube. A wide variety of music of all genres, some great tunes to dance to. 3peat music played this year for the first time, and shared with the crowd that it was a goal of theirs to play for Jazz Fest, after having another […]
I took my Mom to her very first Pride event ever. We are from PEI and Pride isn’t a huge thing there. She loved it- she talked about how happy and celebratory it is. Which is one of the best parts of Pride! a huge colourful parade with people wearing what excites them, listening to […]
Seas of people walk quickly in the cold, puffs of condensed breath coming from the tops of their heads. Caribou and beers in hand, trying to find the tent and band you wanted to see (or find somewhere warm to defrost). Snow sculptures tower (or depending on the year, begin to melt). ATVs drive through […]

Winnipeg is a freaking cold city. It regularly reaches -30c to -40c (-22 to -40f) with the windchill in January and February, and the occasional cold snap in December or March. The people from Winnipeg are so nonchalant about the cold. Sure people complain about it, but in the way that people complain about traffic […]
I feel bad about visiting zoos. The animals are so beautiful, I can’t help but to feel awestruck by them. I wish the animals were living in the wild, but instead zoos are forced to do conservation. I was at the Winnipeg Zoo while my parents were in town this summer and I was amazed […]
November 4th was our first full snowfall in Winnipeg that didn’t melt. We are all buckling in for six months of winter over here. I love the first snow. The green leaves peeking out from the white, the warmer temperatures, and the excitement (before it wears thin). The seasons’ grey areas Our neighbourhood has a lot […]
The elm trees in my neighbourhood are on their last hurrah, gold leaf flooding the sky and the streets. Carlene and I went for a walk through Wolseley on what we thought would be one of the last days before our winter coats came out (we were wrong) with our fall coats and toques on. […]
