I went to my parents’ house a few weeks ago to celebrate Thanksgiving (we celebrated a week early) and the first signs of fall were just starting to peek out. The leaves are changing later this year, I think. But the cooler weather seems to have arrived for good, and I am enjoying sipping warm drinks and wearing warm sweaters.

My sweater is nearly dry, my bags (okay, mostly my knitting projects for the road) are packed, and we’re leaving tomorrow morning for Rhinebeck! I am beyond excited and have a long list of everything I want to see and do. I’ll be there Saturday all day and Sunday morning. I think our plan is to go to the Ravelry meetup at 1pm on the hill on Saturday, so please let me know if you are also going! I am really looking forward to putting some faces to some names. If you’re not going, I’ll be posting a deluge of photos after the weekend, I’m sure, so hopefully you can enjoy a bit from afar.

I took a few photos when we took the dogs for a walk last week, and it just happened to be the first major snowfall of the year! It’s been slowly melting over the last few days, but I’m still holding out hope for a white Christmas.

If you haven’t seen the video I shot during the same walk, you can see it here (and thank you for all of your lovely comments!). And if you want to see more photos from this same conservation area during all sorts of weather and seasons, they’re all here.

Hoping you all had a lovely weekend!

A Winter Walk.

I’ve seen some really lovely videos made by bloggers lately (Liesl’s are some of my favourites), so I decided to give it a try. I took a couple of clips on our walk today, since it seems to be the first significant snowfall of the year! The music in the video is White Winter Hymnal by Birdy.

I’d love your feedback- how do you like seeing videos along with photos?

Also- I’m having my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow morning so I’ll be away for a few days. Hopefully I’ll be back very soon!

When I was visiting my parents last weekend, we got our first proper snowstorm of the year! It’s actually stayed pretty cold since, and there’s been some more snow, so it looks quite lovely outside. We’ve started decorating for Christmas a bit early this year, so the weather seems suitable! I’ll share some pictures of our Christmas decorations and our little tree in a few days.

Go here to see the rest of the photos I’ve taken at this conservation area. There wasn’t snow yet last November!

Do you have snow yet? I’d love to see a photo if you do!

I had a few days off from school at the beginning of this week, and I’ve spent the longer weekend visiting my parents. Winter seems to have made its first true appearance, so I spent most of my time indoors with a cup of tea, frantically knitting Christmas gifts… More to come later this week.

I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and are enjoying the snow if you got some!

October is definitely one of my favourite months. Photos taken at the conservation area near my parents’ house… one of my favourite places. See all of the photos I’ve taken there here.

Hoping you all had a lovely weekend!

It was warm yesterday (it rained!) but there’s still lots of snow and ice. It’ll be a while before it’s properly spring, but hopefully we’re in the final stretch of winter.

Other photos from this same conservation area in November are here.

Have a beautiful weekend!

I think November tends to be a pretty disregarded month. I mean, it gets cold, and it rains a lot, and everything turns kind of grey. The truth is, though, that November is like autumn’s last hurrah… and winter’s beginnings. I saw a few flakes of snow last night and I know it won’t be long until there are many, many more, so I’m trying to enjoy the few leaves left on the tress while I can.

But once the snow actually starts falling, all bets are off. It’s Christmas from then until the end on December. There are a lot of twinkly lights to hang.
