It’s just so damned pretty out there!
Over the years we have developed a series of Snowball cocktails, the most recent of which is the Gin Thuya Snowball.
I shared a photo of one and was asked how to make a Snowball, so I decided to post the full recipe here.
Gin Thuya Snowball
The Gin Thuya Snowball is perhaps the easiest of all our Snowball cocktails. The most complex part of [...]
It is snowy and blowy here. The walk to the outhouse this morning required snowshoes. I didn’t wear snowshoes. But it did require them. #mycurrentview
Hello -25, you sure are pretty. #unsweetenedca

My favourite drink is a Dubonnet Snow Ball. So tasty!

Okay, Round 4 in the Camera Saga.
This time I’m testing, and hopefully loving the Canon S2IS which comes with 12x Zoom and a SuperMacro that allows for 1cm Macro shots.
The major issue with today’s testing was trying to keep the lens from touching the snow flake I was trying to photograph. I’m a much happier camper.
Yesterday we got snow. Real, stick around for a while, accumulation.
It’s gone now, but it was beautiful while it lasted.
