In the bleak mid winter

 February may be the shortest month of the year, but in Ottawa where we don't see grass from December (or this year, late November) until mid to late March, February seems pretty long.  In October I bought snow pants so that I could go play in the snow with Norah.  However, with this frozen shoulder of mine, that will have to wait until next winter.  We had Norah for a sleepover on Friday and Granddad took her out in the back garden on the toboggan.  We have a small hill in our garden and he even built her a snow fort!

As you can see, we still have a copious amount of the white stuff.  Wendell had to dig a path for her to walk as it was near impossible for her!!

Lots of reading as usual

and smiley face pancakes for breakfast. Sleepovers are the best!!

P.S. For all of you who have been asking (thank you so much), my shoulder is improving slowly but surely. It is a long raod, but the cortisone shot really helped and now we can start the rehab.


  1. Wow, that's a long period of snow. Love the pictures, especially the one in the chair - adorable!

    1. Thank CJ. We call her "ANORAHable!"
