Crisp Air and Cozy Cabins: The Essence of Northern Canadian Life on January 2/2024

Good Morning! The north may be cold, but our hearts are warm, and our humour is as dry as a nice pile of seasoned firewood.

So here it is a brand-new year 2024 and New Year’s resolutions are flyin’ around like sparks from a bonfire. Now in this next statement it’s not that I like to spread gossip, but I heard from an old friend of mine, that he swore he’s going to give up his daily ration of maple syrup on pancakes. Well … we will see how long that lasts; a man without his syrup is like a sled without dogs – just ain’t right. Especially having Mike Clappertons Maple Syrup right here in town, who actually in 2019 won the award of being the world’s best.

Highway 522 is very quiet these days with it being Christmas.

On another note, my wife and I have been taking each day as it comes to us. Actually, I got lots done in my woodworking shop, along with editing videos here at my computer over the Holidays. My lovely wife also kept busy painting up a bunch of things, for our small gift shop along with other things, which will be on display come spring. Today, I will be working away in my shop on a few new projects I have in mind. And I am hoping to make a video on how they are made and come together. We will see how that turns out.

With that I am off for a bowl of cereal that my little woman is making for me, after that I will have my hot cocoa and then get to doing what I do best.

So as the sun climbs higher in the sky, it’s my cue to say goodbye for today. Remember, life is short, so savour your hot Cocoa, laugh at the small stuff, and don’t forget to check for mismatched socks before leaving the house! GW
