And then they have sixteen days off. They've been on lock down from recess for a couple weeks now because the windchill is so bad. The cold has been all the way down to minus 47 degrees celcius. To give you an idea of what that means, your deep freezer is set between -15 and -20 celcius. I am not kidding. Can you image 2 weeks with no outdoor recess!? Today, after a big snow, everything is warm and the rooftops are dripping. There are footprints all over the yard once again... a nice sight. How wonderful to get some fresh air and don rosy cheeks!

I haven't been out to take photos. The roads are treacherous right now. While shoveling, it was ambulance siren after ambulance siren. (Please be careful.)
I headed out a few days ago before it got slippery, and postered a few places. People are finally beginning to shop so I'm getting the word out. I am happy to ship for free if any readers who are not in the area are interested in art. Just message me Monika@MySweetPrairie.ca or call 306 979 3519 if you are at The Centre when the admin office is closed.
|@ The Jade Gallery until Dec 28th|
There are ten landscapes available of the 12 I put in, and they cover all seasons. (The one featured on that poster is sold.) And yes - if you go during mall hours, you can have the administration offices open up the Jade Gallery and let you take one home on the spot. THANK YOU to my friend Kerrie who left hers up for the duration.
The SK Craft Council has my Postcards, and SaskMade Marketplace on 8th Street has the annual snowglobes for sale. EACH of these venues offer absolutely wonderful crafts and locally made products. You know the thing - buy handmade! Support small business! : )
In the mean time... back to my motherly duties of writing out cards, wrapping presents, cleaning house, and freezing meals. New work coming soon! : ) Thanks for stickin' with me.
