Adjusting Back to my Northern Life…

I’m always amazed at how fast time flies by…I can’t believe it’s the last week of November already!  This past week has been a week of adjusting…as anyone knows after a holiday or time away from home it takes a bit to adjust back into ‘normal’ life.  Last week I finished my first week back at work…which was awesome–but busy.

I have really, been enjoying my new camera…it ROCKS! I will do a post soon all about my camera…but in the mean time enjoy some of the photos I took.

Talking to friends from Pang it seems that winter arrived close to the time that I arrived back in the territory!  It had been cold, but the snow hadn’t really arrived…but let me tell you it’s here.  So that’s been a bit of an adjustment…getting use to the cold, wind and winter temps!  After a beautiful fall in Ontario…it’s been a bit of a change for sure to jump back into winter..rather than have been here for the slow, subtle changes of the seasons. Back Yard Views-Pangnirtung, Nunavut

I took these photos on Saturday around 11:30am on my walk to the grocery store…the sun was already setting on the mountains around Pang.  Pang has ‘entered’ the period of time where the sun actually doesn’t ‘land’ in town…the sun doesn’t rise above the mountains!  So that means I won’t actually SEE the sun in the sky until mid-February when it returns–another adjustment.  Back Yard Views-Pangnirtung, Nunavut

The sun is still hitting the mountains of the Pang Pass… but every day it’s pitch black by 1:30pm, and we will continue to loose daylight as we get to the winter solstice the longest day of darkness!  Pang isn’t officially at the arctic circle so it’s not officially 24 hours of darkness, but it’s pretty darn close.  So let’s just say this week about 3pm I’ve been so tired…and when I get home at 5pm I just want to eat and crawl into bed.  Which has helped with my goal to be in bed and on my way to sleep by 11pm.  (I’m a night hawk…but trying to get to bed earlier…!) northern gal selfie...

It’s been a week of adjustments, but so glad to be back home–cold and all!  The other major adjustment was going grocery shopping I just bought what I needed and didn’t look at the prices, because that would be too much of a shock!  I just paid it and smiled as I walked home…enjoying the views of snow covered mountains around Pang…it was good to be home, I live in such a beautiful place.

(I have to work on backing up and transferring a lot of my files off my laptop because I’ve reached the “max” storage limits on my macbook pro…so need to get some stuff off of it so it can function again…hello spiny wheel of colour…oh how much I hate you! This has been a bit of a pain with processing and editing photos…so hopefully I’ll get those changes done soon so I can get back to regular blogging!)

    You look really rested after your trip down South! I have also lost the sun in our apartment since we are right up against a ridge, but that at least means you cannot see the dust!

    Love the pink hue on the mountains. Looks like our Flatirons. Some mornings driving to work, just takes my breathe away — stunning beauty. Nice selfie!

      Keenan–so true, the pinks on the mountain tops really do take my breath away…think I’m going to try to go for a walk this weekend to try to capture it more! (if we have clear skies…)
