Barbara Muir ©We have been wonderfully spoiled by climate
change this winter, and also worried, because
until today it only snowed twice in the whole winter.
I had to look for my boots, because I've only needed
boots -- not shoes -- two times in an entire winter.
Yes Toronto is in Canada, and yes this is not normal
Not even a little bit.
But hey. Today it snowed all day, and whether that
in any way makes up for a snow free winter for the
many crops that grow all around this city, and to
the south of us in the peach, and apple orchards
along the lake, I don't know.
I'm still working on my landscape, and I am still
thinking of slowing down on the blog soon. But the
last time I said that some of my friends said that they
look forward to it every day! Hi there, you make me
very happy reading my thoughts every day. So I'm posting
this painting of my brother -- the painting is a favourite
of mine. My brother lives on the shore of the Gatineau
in Chelsea, Quebec and is lucky to look at a spectacular
landscape out of his living room windows every day!
But snow -- now in Chelsea they really
have had a snow packed winter. And every roof had
about three feet of snow covering when we were there
In every spare moment I'm reading a great book --
On Beauty by Zadie Smith. It feels like a long
and quite delightful conversation.
Have a enjoying your favourites day
