Radio Silence…

…how do I begin a blog when I haven’t been “online” here for such a long time? Not that I have to explain my radio silence, I figured I should probably acknowledge it and then move on.

Frosty Sarah To sum it up in one sentence:  I think the January blahs hit me.

The lack of sunlight has started to take a toil…(which is funny because each day the sunlight is slowly coming back).  As with other years, that’s the time the blahs have hit me…it’s like I FINALLY recognize how dark it’s been.  The last couple of weeks the days we do have daylight…the skies have been white, which doesn’t really do much to life that ‘blah’ feeling! I do use a sun lamp in the mornings…and am taking my vitamin D….but still it’s hard.

The Whacky Weather has been a factor too… it’s been unseasonably warm… (around -20C to -25C plus wind chills). So as nice as that seems for someone it does throw a gal off!  It’s also weird because there’s no snow…with the first storm that happened the first week of January and then the winds from last weekend…. we have been left with all the snow stripped from the tundra.

One of the other reasons I’ve been offline I’ve been working on projects that have taken me away from photography and blogging!  I’ve been sewing up a storm on a few different projects…some gifts for friends kids…and my quilt.  I’ve also been knitting up a storm so that keeps me busy.  It’s a good busy, things I’ve been enjoying…actually creating something and stretching those creative muscles!

I have started a really cool project for 2014…joining in other women from around the world to try to make twenty-fourteen the brightest year ever! …but will be doing a post about it soon to let you know more about that…but I have been thinking and asking myself lots of different questions about life and what I want for the future!

So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.  If you are email subscribers you might have noticed a bunch of new post emails today! Sorry… I did have some stories from the past 3 weeks that I did want to share and decided to post them all at the same time–just seemed like the best way to do it!

To end of this awesome rambling post… I’m going to leave you with two links to recent articles from the Globe and Mail.  The first I read last night before going to bed.  It’s a fabulous pictorial view of Life in Nunavut…go have a look and a read, it’s long but a good read.   The second article features Nunavut Students from Iqaluit talking about their experiences….my friend’s daughter Joy’s article was printed!  I’m pretty excited for her and her insight at such a young age!

      Thanks for your comments…. 🙂 this is a favourite self portrait it took at the beginning of December when we were having a cold snap—think it was between -25 & -30C plus a windchill! It’s not quite as cold as that right now.. Just used this photo from my archives because a post without a photo is kind of dull!!! 🙂

      I’m excited about 2014 and the changes the new year always seem to bring! 🙂

    I am having a very odd January… this is normally when the blahs hit me, but the weird weather has me giddy instead! It is supposed to hit +6 tomorrow. I think the Yukon is drunk.


    I hope you get through the blahs!!!!
