I have been knitting a lot more and I mean a lot more in past month of January. Did receive two beautiful hats for a Christmas gift and thought I can knit this hat too. They looked so nice with the little faux fur pompom on the top. Yes the nice thing is that you can remove the pompom if you need to wash the hat.
There is no pattern for this hat! But it is so easy to find some great patterns on Ravelry and add on a pompom. You can get the pompoms probably your local knitting store. A great addition to any hat. I am also using lots of my one skein yarns. Not enough yardage to make more then a hat. SO perfect for the single skeins I have lots off.
I say that I have been knitting a lot more in past month,. That is because I had to isolate for 14 days. As Covid19 hit me beginning of January. Its a horrible virus to get. Lucky me I am now out of the contagious stage. But I am still feeling off at times. With some slight chest pains, upset stomach and tiredness. I am thankful I did not have to get hospitalized unlike my friend and some others. Stay Safe and Healthy…
A week ago today, my eyes had this total magical view
I could not wait to get out of bed to take pictures. If you could have seen what I saw that morning…..
Believe me is breathtaking. The pictures don’t do justice to this. It stayed for two full days…
The trees and bushes where covered with “HAIRS” of about 1″ long. The size of the frost that formed depended on how much water vapor was available to feed the ice crystals as they grow. I can honesty say I have never seen anything like it. Its so magical!
There is this tingle I had in me to just stay outside and enjoy every singe moment of this Magical Land and right here in my Garden you could say… Happiness.
How beautiful is it to walk in the country with the snow covered fields all around you.
Sure it is cold and burr the wind is blowing lots too. Oh my Goshhhh,I could not believe my luck today, LOL.
I tell you, just one picture into the walk my camera told me the the card is full!! Oh no… really ?!
Gurr mittens off and deleting quickly some of the picture from way long ago…
All was set to take in the winter Wonderland in pictures once again.
Hope you will approve of them as much as I had fun falling into the snow and getting the camera and myself covered in snow too….Yes the ground was uneven as most county sites are and the snow hides it all. But that makes it so much more special to take the fun and special pictures. Most of all Memories to have.
It has been way to long again since I was here writing. Have you ever felt like you have lost a passion for something. Well I kind of did with my writing here. Though in past months I have found I rekindled with my camera.
Yes Sunsets have taken over my evenings of joy and happiness.
Well it has been a summer to remember and now the Fall is here again too. Well wait…. I think I should say winter! As Halloween has come and gone. And promptly the Snow fell already too.
I coud not believe today as I drove in my truck I heard the first Christmas Songs on the raidio.
So I thought I better show you some on my Sunsets & Sunrises I hade seen this past months.
This was totally amazing to see. First we did hear this loud noise from some kind of bird. Though we had no idea what it was from. I could not believe my luck, a Pileated woodpecker. The largest woodpecker alive in North America. It’s really interesting as I just not long ago was looking up the different kinds of woodpeckers we have here in Canada.
Here I am walking at Awenda Provincial Park and look what we did see. Unfortunately for me I did not have my telefocus lens with me… but taking my time I did get a flyby shot of this amazing Woodpecker.
I received this amazing request this morning…yess so cool!

Always love taking pictures of water droplets on anything I can find. This day May 9 it was one of those days where we had some rain just the morning off. So I know there would be some great pictures. However this tulip took my eye right over. It was the first one to open up this year and it looked just so special in the new stage of life. Sometimes I feel many people see the beauty in the open flowers only.
This to me was even more special.
I feel the three leaves surrounding the inner pedals, are like a mother hugging her child.
For this shot I used my Canon EOS 70D and used my Macro lens to get it nice and close up.
Have a open mind look for the unusual things in life. See the beauty though your heart and soul….Just have fun.I very seldom modify my pictures. I may crop them here and there to take out extra that is not needed in picture.
Somehow a bird must have drooped this seed in my garden…
One of my favorite flower in the spring. It has a special meaning to me.. in so many ways. My childhood back home in Switzerland and memories of happiness growing up so free and loved. With bunnies in the garden and us playing with the Guinea pigs in the fields that where our pets. How could you not love to grow up with this kind of happiness.
Some may never ever experience this kind of joy. I am so grateful to have had this kind of joy.
My Mom ( Mutt) and Dad (Vat) always loved us no matter what even now my mom is the most amazing lady I know.
Unconditional Love for her kids.. even if we give her up and downs. Kids kind of do that to their parents… we all know that.
But mom, in my case loves all of me… Dad in heaven is always looking out. I know He doesn’t judge me for my up and downs.
“No one can take this happiness ever away!”
Because no matter what, bonds don’t break … ever.
“loved Once in Heaven are always with us …we never forget them and they are always in our hearts.
