Wacky Wednesday (w)again

Perhaps, in light of the current world wide pandemic, Wednesdays should be for wacky.

Wacky number one is the weather in Saskatchewan. Did anyone else notice that right now we aren’t talking that much about the weather? I’ve spent my adult life trying not to whine about it and just accept what comes our way. We’ve certainly had our share of Easter snow and this year is no different. What’s wacky is that I am upstairs working on Christmas gifts and overlooking the winter wonderland. In April.

We had so much snow that we had a 45 minute work out shoveling. Again not wacky or weird. But then … I decided that heavy wet snow was perfect for a couple of little visitors! Ron even got into the action and all of a sudden we had cold hands and chuckles.

…with rocks for the eyes, a pine cone for the nose and a bone for the smile!

So two of my favourite winter stories met in the middle. Meet Sadie (from Sadie and the Snow man) and Grampa Dan (from Grampa Dan’s Toboggan Ride). It’s a little wacky that he’s wearing my Liverpool scarf. Ah… 2020 the year we were on track to win the title and then the world went wonky or wacky or whatever you want to call this pandemic.

But then it gets even wackier or wonderful. Yes I’m definitely going to go with wonderful. Practicing safe physical distancing a young friend came out to capture some isolation photos of us. I had planted the seed in her head after I read, on CBC, about a Whitehorse photographer. He was capturing families through their windows. So… She’s jumped on that creative idea and started with us in the golden hour of light. I will share those wonderful photos in a separate post, to do them justice, but here is a picture (through the door) of her taking a picture of our little snowmen.

I am sure everyone feels that the wonky tilt right now. My hope for my readers today is to bring a little lightness into a world that feels dark and heavy at times.

As always thanks for reading and if you need a virtual hug or a shoulder please reach out. As Red Green “keep your stick on the ice, we’re all in this together”.





I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. Hope your wacky weather ends soon, Bernie. Even though it is melting here for the past two days, the wind is still cold. Tomorrow, they are promising warm, calm and +8. Wow. Deck weather. I’ll be ready. Stay safe. Allan


    1. The wind today is insanely strong so I’m doing 45 on the bike and will walk at dusk if it settles down. Yes +8 does indeed seem like deck weather! Enjoy it while at home. Take care Allan.
