Today I’m sending Birthday Greetings to the person that made me an Aunt 9 years ago!
9 is 6 turned upside down
Whenever you feel old, do a headstand and it turns everything upside down, even your age!
It’s time today to tell the world you’re cool and cute…
Full of fun and laughter!!!
Enjoy your 9th Birthday Cake…
I wish you a super awesome day!
Sending luv from Nunavut…Aunt Sarah
PS. Gramma has your birthday card from me in Lindsay!
Day 23: Fix… On Sunday I got my sewing machine out and finally fixed the pocket of my parka.
Day 24: 12 o’clock… I tried on a friends parka, she was thinking of selling it but later in the week changed her mind. It was a gorgeous parka! Made me realize I need to get working on creating my new parka! (I purchased the material before thanksgiving!)
Day 25: reflection…what do you see?
Day 26: grow…just growing some roots.
Day 27: still life…
Day 28: thank you… My house-sitters from Christmas left me this fantastic tea as a thank you gift! Seriously…it’s such a fantastic blend!!!
Day 1: (March) starts with an R… Mmmmmm rice!
Another week done! I must admit this week was hard to keep up because I was on ‘duty’ travel…that’s what work travel is called. I was in Iqaluit all week but I caught up yesterday and am keen to start week 10!!! Why don’t you join me? Here’s the list.
Last night I got a Facebook message from my friend Mike asking if I’d like to head out with him to see if the Northern Lights were out. It was around 8:45pm and was pretty cold, but got bundled up and headed out when Mike arrived 30mins later!
The lights did not disappoint!
We headed up just behind my house…up past the water reservoir and set up to take some shots.
Mike helped me figure out my focus…one thing I always have a hard time doing for night shots–so it was awesome that he helped me out!
There’s something so magical just standing on a frosty evening (it was around -33C with a windchill of -37C) all bundled up watching the lights dance over your heads. At one point just before we were going to jump on the skidoo to head to a new location I was like–OH WOW, Look at that! (the lights had just jumped up on the horizon behind a mountain.)
All in all it was a fantastic night.
Thanks Mike for going shooting with me, can’ wait until the next time!
Another fun week of taking photos!!! This past week my friend, Rachelle joined me in Pang–she’s staying with me for 6 weeks total. It’s fun to have a roomie again. It’s hard to believe that it’s the last week of Febraury…this week has a few special dates ahead for me. Here was last week’s list…
Day 16: from where I stood… inside looking out a dirty window at such a bright but frigid day here in Pangnirtung.
Day 17: routine…every day have my tea and porridge while checking emails at my desk!
Day 18: bedside…I have my friend staying with me for the next 6weeks so I’m in the spare room!
Day 19: fresh…and cold is what the air outside is! I do love my Nunavut home. (Even though this day it was -32C with windchill -34C!)
Day 20: this is so me!!! Just chillin’ in a hoodie my bestie Krista gave me when I visited her in Melbourne.
Day 21: matching…frosted locks! My friend Rachelle and I during our chilly walk around Pang!
Day 22: macro…can you tell what this is?
Well here’s the list for Week 9! Why don’t you play along? I’m heading to Iqaluit this week for work looking forward to what this week will bring!
Home Sweet Pang! Wow, it’s been full weeks since I’ve been back home. Time really does fly so quickly! I’ve been busy getting adjusted to working full time after my vacation–which takes time! I’ve also been trying to get to bed earlier, and walk on my treadmill either before work or immediately after! So far so good.
On Tuesday my friend Rachelle arrived in Pang!
It’s hard to believe that 3 1/2 weeks ago we were walking on a beach in the sun beside an ocean…well today we went for a walk on the snow beside a FROZEN ocean! Wow, times have sure changed…and today we wore a few more layers–like covered from head to toe!
Boracay, Philippines vs. Pangnirtung, Canada
Even though it was cold today. It was -29C with windchill it was -39C we decided to head out for a short walk…as my grandpa would say, “to blow the stink off of us!” The sun was just heading behind the mountains as we had our short 20min walk!
There is a visiting dog team in town…and we caught Sarah McNair-Landry and Erik Boomer coming back from feeding them. They arrived from Iqaluit and are on a quest to circumnavigate Baffin Island by dogsled. Finding True North caught up with Sarah and Erik before they left Iqaluit…and wrote an awesome piece about their adventure! If you want updates about their progress–check out their website Way of the North!
Can you see the dogs in the photo below? They look so small!
Ok, so near the end of our short walk we were getting a wee bit cold! Rachelle needs to get some fur for her coat…I love the blue fox fur (that’s been dyed black) on my parka–catches all the frost so it doesn’t build up on my face. So if you are reading this via a reader or an email…click over to Sarah on the Road… I’ve updated a few things on the site. I’ve added a tab “Indigo’s Ravens” it shares all the posts from my Yukon 2013 adventure with my blogging friends Kara, Tina, Kennie and Jen! (Previously these were hosted on another site, but decided to move them over to SarahontheRoad).
