  2. Crunchy footsteps, snow drooping prettily, and that wonderful accent, this was as if I was walking in your garden. It looks huge, how much land area is there? And Sophie, off to play another stick game, why not on such a winter's day. Yes, Jim, I saw what they were up to!!!

    1. Crunchy indeed, such is January in Canada and with February just at our heels the crunch will get louder.
      I am always so thankful that Feb is only 28 days.
      It's all psychological I know but sometimes you just need something going your way.
      Jim is the smart one today, sitting comfy in his chair looking out at us.
      Next time is your time JIMBO!

  4. Yours is the best way to enjoy these cold, cold days--Watching a video of it from the warmth of the inside! What a beautiful winter garden and fun walk; you make me want to get outside myself with the dogs and explore. Okay, maybe not--At least not for too long! I hope Jim had a nice hot cup of something waiting for you, and a warm blanket for Sophie!

  5. Oh, do your paws get very cold, SophieDoodle? Samson's feet have lots of fur on them. I mean his paws do. Ron: You know, I get really annoyed when people you have come to care for just stop blogging without letting anyone that they are OK. For all one knows they could have met with an accident or illness or worse. Anyhow, Majsan wrote an email to me with a Christmas greeting, but no news, no reason why she stopped blogging or if she planned to return. Which brings to mind the fact that if I stop blogging without letting anyone know I am, something most likely would have happened to me. My hubby is not computer literate and so far I haven't given anyone access to my blog. It's a dilemma for me.

    1. Oh thank you Inger, at least you heard from her at Xmas which sounds pretty good. Blogging can be tiresome sometimes and I'm not immune to that. This past year proved to be the case with me. I couldn't keep up at all. I am starting to slowly get back but it's a 2 step forward, 1 or 3 steps back. Jim is so good at blogging and is so faithful to his followers. I'll catch him some day!

      All the best and hugs to all!
      Ron

  11. Hey, SD and Ron! I enjoyed this winter walk so much, especially after haven seen it for real in the summer. Where are those purple booties, Gurlfriend? We went through a bad coldsnap here, and one of my friends was trying to make booties for her dachshund. I was telling her about your purple booties. That winter walk along the dunes looked SOOOO COOOOLD! I know just how that feels! How on Earth do you do writing with building lights, Ron? Do you hold your shutter open and write letters in the air facing the building? I'm curious about trying it myself ~ just because it looks so cool! Stay warm! We're having our January warm spell ~ headed for 60ºF or 15.5ºC today! But back down tomorrow. Have a great week!

    1. Our January Thaw should zap us very soon just like what you are having. Hey, perhaps it follows the continent and ends up on our doorstep after you.

      We have 3 Purple Booties that are not with holes while the other 5 are filled with holes. Sophie was a real sport the other day when we covered feet knowing one bootie just might work well. We finished the walk popped Sophie in the back seat and began pulling off the booties. The one bootie with holes was filled with tiny marble like ice pellets. Ouchie. She didn't mind in the least. We plan on going out this week to get some more, perhaps a new colour.

      The camera lights photos were taken in manual mode while playing with the exposures. I just turn until something happens. If it isn't what I like I change the settings again. Go for it, you just never know what the creative mind will develop.

      Hi to Terry and all the best on this Sunday!

  12. Really enjoyed the walk around your garden. Do you ever plant right into your compost heap ? Tomatoes or Zucchini or the like ?

    I'm surprised your camera didn't seize up in the cold.

    What a marvellous yard.

    I didn't walk the dogs yesterday. Just did the treadmill and played inside.

    Right now Sooki, Wendy and I are off to Shubie. We don't come your way so much now after the Porcupine incident. BTW did you spot the corpse on the hill ?

    1. We never found the porcupine on the hill. Maybe because we park at MacDonald House then head up and over to the point. I have a feeling it is down below towards Stony Beach parking lot.

      The compost heaps have grown a few things over the years. We used to be avid veggie gardeners, then the trees grew up. Sun disappeared. Oh well, we enjoy what we have now.

      Cheers to all of you!
