It's That Time of Year Again

This is a photo of the Flathead Range in the Crowsnest Pass in south-western Alberta.

Whenever the weather turns bitter cold with blowing snow the locals in Toronto complain initially and then they open up a little more to others in friendly gestures. Often the worst of the cold is over in a week; however, this time its continuing into a second week without much of a break. It warmed a little on Saturday to deliver snow and then the temperature dropped again. We should be counting our blessings and not encourage the deep freeze occurring in western Canada where Regina and Calgary have been experiencing -40C.

My absences from posting is due to personal matters taking a precedence. Two book reviews are nearing completion which should be posted soon.

Have missed your postings Barbara. The Flathead range photos is stunning - and -40 degree temperatures are hard to comprehend for me - wishing you a happy festive season Barbara, and thanks for your recent visit to Textilosophy Oz.

Snow enhances the world! Today I arrived in Brisbane Australia. It is summer here . I t means sometimes oppressively hot, or excessive rainfall. In spite of this all, I hope to celebrate a great X-mas with my children.
Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
