Best Wishes

January 10, 2017
It's been almost a month since I've been here, so I'm definitely overdue to wish you all a Happy New Year!

This time of year it's not difficult to catch the sun rise; it crawls over the horizon at 7:36 a.m. And what a beauty this one was.  ( Wished the pics were better.) Flaming red rimed the horizon and a carpet of red, pink and beautiful shades of blue rolled out across the sky--a true celebration to greet the day.

I don't take a lot of winter pictures; however, it recently dawned on me that other people might like to see what a Canadian winter looks like. So over the holidays, I had a chance to go out and about. So far the winter has been a bit warmer (a mixed bag of snow storms and freezing rain) with less snow than usual, but ice is still settling on the river.

             For avid fisher people: an ice fishing chateau 👀 for rent. No, no thanks.

                                              Sitting on thin ice.  Not for the faint of heart.

Inside there have been a few doodles. I may get copies printed so I can pop cards in the envelopes to say thank you for my shoppe orders.

And finally a collage from my instagram account of the best of nine for 2016.

May you and yours long continue to promote joy, light, laughter, peace and good will in a world that, more than ever, needs a strong united front in voice, word and deed and our tender loving care.


  1. Happy New Year to you, too, Dixie. Oh how I loved watching "We are the World" video again, after all these years; all those gifted artists singing in unison such a wonderful song. You are so right the world needs for us, in our own little corner to make a difference, to be kind, bring laughter, add a dash of joy..........to care for each other. How I have loved walking through your wintry landscape, it is beautiful. So I take it you are not renting that little chateau......why ever not?? =) It's lovely seeing all your "doodles" together, they are lovely, and your shawl is beautiful; such a pretty colour and pattern. I loved this post, Dixie....thank you!

  5. I know it’s very cold, but I really love the serenity of Canadian winter. One day I would love to experience that in person. Gorgeous sunrise, and your Instagram collage is such a wonderful mix of lovely colours. You worded what the world needs now so beautifully. Lovely post, Dixie!
