I’m back for a 4th year of Changing Seasons – a monthly blogging event that celebrates the changes in our world throughout the year.
Depending on where you live, weather certainly can play a huge part in those changes, but so do all the other activities going on in our day-to-day lives – obstacles, victories, or simple survival.
Thank you to Max at Cardinal Guzman for giving this feature life for the past 3 years, and to Su Leslie at Zimmerbitch for picking up the torch from Max. Perhaps this year you’ll consider joining in too. You may discover a texture or pattern to your months that you never knew existed.
For many of us, the weather has been THE big event this month, dominating a lot of blogging space. In my corner of the world, January has been a roller coaster ride of frigid cold, followed by a teasing melt, and then back to Arctic conditions.
It hasn’t been a pleasant month for outdoor activities.
Perhaps it was just as well that I had a busy month of obligations that often kept me house bound, but in spite of that, I still managed to brave the cold on more than a few occasions.
The following photos are some of my winter time adventures this month.
I haven’t played with the colour on these photos. Life really has been a landscape of white with flat greys and browns, even on the sunniest of days. Any spot of colour discovered in this monotony would jump out, begging for a photo.
I’ve had a full month making new memories, and the month isn’t even over yet.
Later this week I’ll be reporting for jury duty. Either January will end in mind-numbing boredom as I kill time in the pool of potential jurors, or it will be an interesting blog-worthy experience. Who knows?
In the meantime, winter is here to stay for a couple more months, and Theo says to let him sleep until spring.
