Time seems to be flying by…it’s been a crazy hectic month! Starting off still in Ontario taking care of my mum…then coming back north…after a 3 day delay in Iqaluit then settling back into life and work and normal routines after 6 weeks away! To be honest, this month was hectic and crazy and I *might* not have uploaded a photo for each prompt on the each day. This won’t be that huge of a surprise if you follow me on instagram because you will have noticed my mad rush early last week uploading about 15 photos in one day…to catch up on photos I had missed. I think that’s the beauty of this challenge, that you can make the rules…and if you miss a day or two, or even 15… you can choose to upload them later and it is alright! That being said, I did do all the prompts..and without any more rambling here’s my November photos!

Without any further delay here’s my summary of my photos! Some of my photos were taken with my Canon 50D (particularly the ones earlier in the month before I got my new camera then they were taken with Canon 6D… or my iPhone 3GS!
Day 1: Fruit… yummy oranges, being in the south…I ate so much fresh fruit!
Day 2: i did this today… worked on a knitting project, and have fun doing it!
Day 3: P is for… Pictures of me in old newspaper clippings, my mum and I were going through her old trunk, and found lots of clippings from my childhood! I’m the first girl on the toboggan in that photo!
Day 4: Table… my mum ventured outside of the house for the first time since her surgery and we went for lunch..but had breakfast for lunch!
Day 5: i collect… while going through my mum’s truck I found my valentine’s day cards from when I was in Preschool. (It was something i don’t really collect these things, just made sense when I was at my mum’s!)
Day 6: Music… listening to music on my iPhone!
Day 7. Yes! I love using this new app called Bitstrips to make comics… This one was made by my friend Kennie…and it ROCKS!
Day 8. someone i miss… my grandpa, it’s hard to believe that in December it will be 16 years without him! (This is a photo of my grandpa and I when I was 3!)
Day 9. Mine… my new camera… a Canon 6D… I’m in LOVE!!! (but I actually purchased it on November 14th…but the beauty of not doing prompts on the right day… allowed me to post about it after i purchased it!)
Day 10: book… so excited to start reading this book!!!
Day 11: a memory… thinking about the week I spent on the beach in Mexico in 2011! Wish I was going to a beach sometime soon where it was warm and sunny…
Day 12: clouds… just a shot of random clouds while flying from Toronto to Ottawa! (this again was a picture I took and posted after the ‘actual’ prompt day…flew from Toronto to Ottawa on the 15th~)
Day 13. Part of me… this earring I got the summer I was 17. I was working at a summer camp, and on my day off went into town and got this piercing. About 7 of us got pierced that day…and by the end of that week I think at least 20 had a new one done!
Day 14: eating… all you can eat sushi with my little bro, sis-in-law and cousin…nothing else needs to be said…awesome evening!
Day 15: in my pocket/purse… this is my handy dandy camera bag…with all my camera gear hidden inside I was on my way from Toronto to Ottawa!
Day 16: play… just another day looking to take the car outside for a drive….
Day 17: 5 o’clock… this photo was taken at 5pm it had been dark for hours, and just walking home. (Yahoo for short winter days living in the Arctic!)
Day 18: mirror… I was FINALLY home after trying to get here for 2 days! I must say this is one of my favourite new selfies I have taken!
Day 19: where you ate breakfast… as normal, first day back at work…eating breakfast at work while I read emails!
Day 20: communication… today I spent time fighting with the fax machine, trying to communicate and send information…after a few unsuccessful attempts they finally where sent!
Day 21: i wish i had this… more change for my change purse!
Day 22: behind… my house, there’s a blanket of snow…with a few remaining pieces of dead plants coming through the snow!
Day 23: simplicity… just my front step and some snow that built up on it…
Day 24: a word… that’s my name spelling in syllabics which is the written form of Inuktitut.
Day 25: quirky… to take this quirky photo i put on my toe socks (that I’ve only worn on a few occasions) my Berk sandals… and rolled up my jeans. Perfect get-up for this Arctic Gal in the winter!
Day 26: message… i received my Christmas Cards… and now have to get writing messages on them, and sending them off via Canada Post!
Day 27: no! more sun will come up over this mountain…until February…here comes the dark season for Pangnirtung.
Day 28: i am grateful for… these warm clothes walking home from work. Photo taken at 5pm, and my neighbours car drove by…I think they wondered why I was standing so still in front of my house in -25C plus windchill temps!
Day 29: black… my view from my office window at 2:30pm today.
Day 30: all done… I broke my own rule about no Christmas decorations until after my birthday, and got them out to decorate… my house looks so awesome and it makes me smile, so happy I made that choice! (besides…rules are meant to be broken!)
