It has warmed up to -18 today, while other places further south are dipping drastically into frozen temperatures. With the warmer weather the foxes have been playing out in the yard again. Apparently my car is their new playground!!!
It is 10:30 AM and still pitch black out - it's almost hard to believe that the light will soon eat up all the dark until there is none left. For now I am enjoying lunchtime sunrises and afternoon sunsets; the two are still close enough that sunrise blends into sunset creating cotton candy daytime skies.
Spent the day yesterday outlining - soooo much outlining! Today will be re-working the foreground. So off I go - back to the studio with my tea!!!
So it seems that our cold snap in Inuvik is finally nearing the end; however, Yellowknife has an extreme cold weather warning so I am sure those chilled temperatures will swirl themselves this way soon enough. In these frigid temperatures where I was pretty lame and have tried to avoid going outside. So I have been dreaming of and painting summer colours on the tundra!
This morning it is -31 with a windchill of -36 and the air is filled with ice crystals I sent the kids off to school and am curled up at my painting table with a cup of tea and my paints! Tea of choice this morning is Stash Licorice Spice.
First day of school after Christmas break for the kids today; however, I forgot that there was no school this morning and sent them anyways. Whoops!!! They weren't too pleased with me when they got back home.
The first sunrise of 2020 will be arriving today, bringing with it days which will quickly flood with light. It is hard to explain the joy of seeing the sun for the first time in 30 days. It is indeed a time of celebration and Inuvik goes all out with welcoming back the sun! In fact we have a whole weekend festival to celebrate the return of the sun and the light which will follow.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
