Falling from Summer

I have been out of the writing loop for a while. Here is a little snapshot of what I have been up to:

Summer was an amazing adventure. Camping is usually the main event on my list but this year we switched it up. We did one major road trip that brought us up through the Northern tundra of British Columbia into Watson lake Yukon, down the coast and back down to the Sunny Okanagan. This province is truly amazing! We camped beside natural hot springs, sat near glaciers with the hot sun on our faces, and walk through lava fields that are hundreds of years old. There are few words that can describe all that we saw, but this is one trip I recommend for everyone truly inspiring!

As our summer adventures wind down and the weather begins to change, I have been busy canning. Yes the old time preservation of food commonly done from the produce of ones garden. Which has been both sad and rewarding, as I have really enjoyed watching it grow. You may remember a post about my garden inspired cards?

Soon the leaves begin to fall and its time to carve the pumpkins! Halloween has just appeared! Wow time has slipped by. I do enjoy seeing all the kids and their imaginative costumes. But it saddens me that with each year there are fewer and fewer kids, this Halloween we got 11 trick or treaters.

This November I had a wonderful opportunity to partake in a local artisans event. Fabulous Finds. Two days of art, artists, and wine.  The Sunny Okanagan has a lot of art events this holiday season and this was one event that I really did enjoy.  Next on the list for fun art events is Art for Almighty, November 10th & 11th. All day at the Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna BC. Then Studio 113 November 16 & 17 in the very same building.  The Christmas Craft Show will be at Ellison Hall in Kelowna BC November 24th. I will write more info in regards to these shows soon.
Until next time!
