You know it’s wickedly cold when Niagara Falls freezes over! It’s a spectacular sight (actually, it isn’t completely frozen and the water still flows underneath). Bitter cold temperatures haven’t kept the tourists away, so there’s plenty of photos to view on the Internet. I still hope to see it, before they thaw as temperatures start to rise.
Here’s how the front porch looked just before I left for Seattle in January. Great packing snow!
Now you can barely see the Muskoka chairs.
Colourful winter coats, worn with pretty scarves, help to cheer me and keep me warm on these subzero winter days. Red always brightens my mood and I wear a different scarf every time.
Timeless houndstooth and other bold patterns makes a coat look stylish and impressive. This one is from a thrift shop and cost $20.
Of course, every woman needs a black coat too; goes with all my wild patterned leggings and colourful, printed skinny jeans.
Pretty pink and florals worn during dreary winter months gives me hope that spring will return. This coat is washable faux suede with a faux fur trim. My earmuffs are a gift from my cousin when she came to visit in October, perfect to keep my ears toasty warm today.
The snow today is too powdery for making snowballs. Knit scarf and gloves are from Reitmans and my faux suede boots are from Payless.
My father told me these encouraging German words.
Es geht alles vorüber, es geht alles vorbei.
Nach jedem Winter, folgt wieder ein Mai.
Everything will pass, everything will be over,
After every winter, comes again another May.
