November 2016 – week 47

Welcome to this week’s edition of my photo-a-day challenge.

The weather here in South-Eastern Ontario has been very changeable this week. We had snow early in the week, freezing rain in between and ending with rain and unseasonably warm weather to finish.

I hope all my American friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving, and everyone is getting excited for the festive season ahead.

Now on to this week’s photos:

November 20 – self portrait; the dreaded ‘self-portrait’! Why is it that many (or probably most) of us do not like our own photo.  This year’s challenge has been one self portrait a month, and it is not getting any easier…at least not for me. This was while I was looking through recipes to get ready for the week ahead.


November 21 – my grocery list; at the office, I keep an ongoing group of lists on electronic ‘post-it’ notes on my desk top.

November 22 – negative space; this poor little weed was sticking out of the snow drift at the front of our house. A night of wind & snow left quite a significant drift. Thankfully, by the time I was writing this post, it had all but melted.


November 23 – on my table; with the falling snow, I thought it was time for my cooking snow lady to come out & sit on my table.  This is a Jim Shore figurine called “Winter’s Comfort”


November 24 – homemade; a wonderful bowl of homemade comfort on a damp & dreary day … hubby’s special chicken noodle soup.

November 25 – leftovers; this is a quilt I made for my husband. He had several old, worn, but still favourite shirts that he couldn’t seem to toss. I cut them up and made a quilt for him. Because the shirts were so old and worn, it is the softest quilt we have, made even more cosy with a flannel backing. Now he still has all those shirts & memories that came with them.

November 26 – framing; the trees make a lovely frame for this shot of a rain storm in the distance over Ke’e Beach at the foot of the Kalalau Trail on the Na Pali Coast of Kaua’i.

Thank you so much for visiting…until next time, Connie 🙂


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
