Winter Wonderland In The Country

Look what has arrived here in the beautiful Ontario. I love the sunshine in the winter too.

It has been a beautiful October and yes November too. With only 2 weeks ago of +20 temperatures. How it can change so fast.. But look at how pretty this white stuff can be too.

SHADOW PLAY

St. Georges Church, Georgina,

This beautiful peaceful place by Jackson’s Point, keeps on puling me to come up and visit over and over again. Not sure what pulls me to it … yet It just gives me that inner feeling of Peace.

At a moment of need in my heart … In early Spring this year. At a quiet place off the main area Just placed on the ground. A red Rose….just like that, I believe it was a gift from Heaven for me to find. As I was about to leave … but something in me said, just go that way and don’t go yet.

this is not the place I found my Rose…. it’s where I place them to see the lake and sky…and hope I’ll give the one person that finds it a smile to his/her heart too.

Here and there I now too bring a Rose and place it overlooking the Lake Simcoe as I love that view so much. Peace and feeling of freedom. The big world wide open, wherever the water or sky takes One.

I believe someone will love to feel like I did when I did see that rose … I was speechless at that moment…

The grounds of this Church is so tranquil and beautiful…

Spring Moments By The Lake

April 2019 Lake Simcoe

Some of you probably know I have been going on drives to enjoy our Lake Simcoe here In Ontario, Canada. Usually with no destination in place. My truck just tales me somewhere to the water.

It’s absolutely beautiful to feel the wind in my hair. To listen to the waves crushing onto the shore.

There are different seasons I have seen up there.

Today I’ll show you how it was last April… Pretty windy and rather cold.. bust totally peaceful.

I’ll show you more warmer days soon too…. Sunshine all around now….

Dehydrated Tomates

 

 

IMG_4571

Love the rich red colour of these tomatoes.

It is all around us right now the ripe fruits and vegetables are an indication of the end of summer season.  Apples, peaches, pears, corn, cabbages and yes tomatoes.

I am luck to have this Holland Marsh  wetland close by well about 20 minutes driving distance from my home.  As per their website “Produce selections range from more traditional crops such as carrots, onions and celery, to more diverse options like Chinese broccoli, Asian radish, and water spinach”.  So a lot of the vegetables I believe are coming from there to our local store that I have right around my home.

I also have a knitting / sewing friend that grows carrots and onions right in Holland Marsh. Luck for me I have been getting a bag here and their from her and her husband. With the onions  I make this amazing yummy onion soup. Carrots are great for carrot cake or soup too.

So since yesterday I have been dehydrating 3 baskets full of tomatoes so my hubby can take them on his up-coming hike to  Munising Falls Michigan (Pictured Rocks) with his hiking friends.

Have a great September to all of you.

I may have to do the same with apples soon

De La Salle Beach in Sutton

IMG_3163This is an Ice Wonderland right here in Sutton, Ontario….

unbelievable how there is sooooo much ice on the beach! This is not to far from us about 30 minutes driving…people where still on the ice doing Ice-Fishing…IMG_3177

I guess they know what they are doing….felt a little more comfortable staying on land at this time of year.

Do You See What I See

So peaceful this is!img_7723

You should see the rocks and the crevasses, many covered with all kinds of moss.  Just love all the little things I see when taking time to look. Perfect moment.

So friedlich ist das!img_7704

Du solltest die Felsen sehen und die Äste, viele mit allen Arten von Moos bedeckt. Perfect den Foto Aparat  mit zu bringen. All die kleinen Dinge, die ich sehen, mann muss nur die Zeit nehmen zum schauen. Perfekter Moment.

Peaceful Weekend in Port Credit

A surprise for me from my wonderful husband. 

 Just for the two of us..having some nice quiet time together without the kids.  What a surprise this was for me…a memory to keep and I am blessed to have been able to spend it with my Love.  Amazing food, wonderful company my husband and the weather was just perfect too.

                                              It snowed ever so lightly and was all so quiet and soft..

 

  

  Eine sehr schöne Überraschung für mich von meinem lieben Mann.

 Nur für uns Zwei …Gemütliche Stunden zum Erholen und Entspannen ohne Kinder.  Wie schön dass doch war für uns….In Erinnerung wir das bei mir bleiben…und dankbar bin ich dass ich so eine schöne Zeit mit meinem lieben Mann verbringen durfte. Amazing Food, die beste Begleitung mein  Mann und das Wetter was gerade perfect.

  So leicht uns saft schneite es durch den Abend … gemütlich und sanft sah alles aus…..

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                               

Sunset at the “Tiny Marsh Provincial Wildlife Area”

  A visit to my school friend from my hometown in Switzerland took us also to this wonderful marsh “Tiny Marsh Provincial Wildlife Area” where they live now close to Elmvale in Ontario.  Only about one hour north from where we live. So quiet and peaceful was this marsh…wonderful to see the sun set in the evening.  My husband surprised my with this wonderful peaceful place…

Ein Besuch bei meiner Schulkameradin aus meiner Heimatstadt in der Schweiz führte uns auch zu diesem wunderbaren Sumpf oder Marsch “Tiny Marsh Provincial Wildlife Area” , wo sie jetzt leben in der Nähe von Elmvale in Ontario.  Nur etwa eine Stunde Nördlich von uns. So ruhig und friedlich war dieser Sumpf … wunderbar, die Sonne am Abend setzt zu sehen.  Mein Mann überrascht mich mit diesem wunderbaren ruhigen Ort ..

Art in Toronto… In A Busty Way

 

 Look at this art…

I was intrigued to see the different bust-cast they had on display at the last CNE in Toronto.  You don’t get to see that very often so my camera came out.  Very interesting and beautiful I thought. Each bust was painted with a different picture, aswell as they all had their own story behind  that picture.

  One can see how our body can be so different with age….

 

 

 Schaut her was ich hier zum Zeigen habe….

 Faszinierent dachte ich.  Die Büsten-Druckgusse waren zur  Austellung bei der letzten CNE in Toronto zu sehen.  Natürlich war dass ein Moment für meine Kamera.  Jeder Büsten- Druckguss hatte ein persöndliche Zeichnung darauf wie auch eine Erklärung oder Geschichte darüber.  Sehr interresant und schön zu sehn wie verschieden Körper sich entwickeln wenn wir älter werden….

Port Dover, Onatrio

A wonderful time we had with our relatives visiting them and taking a drive to Port Dover, Ontario a little town on Lake Erie.  I love all the little shops and interesting creative ways some home or store owners decorate their homes.  A lovely little town and  the weather was nice too. 

But look at the amazing sky that evening.

  It’s like heaven had to show us a picture too…

 

 

Eine schön Zeit hatten wir mit unsern Verwanten bei Ihnen auf Besuch.  Auch eine Ausfahrt nach Port Dover, Ontario ein kleines Dorf an Lake Erie war schön.  Mir gefallen all die kleinen Geschäfter.  Immer schön zu sehen wie die Eigentümmer alles so Dekorieren um das Hause herum. 

Ein schönes kleines Dorf und auch das Wetter war schön. 

Schaut dem Himmel an auch da ein schönes Bild….

But look at the amazing sky that evening.
