Earlier this week, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) encouraged drivers in Ontario to keep their snow tires on, despite the recent warm up and transition to the spring season…

”Typically we have to get through the first week of April in southern Ontario to say we’ve really cleared the threat of significant snow,” says Chris Scott, another meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Some years we have seen snow later than that, but typically in a place like Toronto, if you can get by April 10th and 15th, you’ve pretty much said, OK, spring is here and we’re done!”

I’ve got a big list of diverse activities to enjoy that including playing, creating, eating and more!:

Let’s start with activities that are scheduled for March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day).

Though some folks enjoy green beer on St. Paddy’s Day I’ve always been partial to a good hearty, Irish meal. If you enjoy eating, too 😉 here’s a great suggestion for where to enjoy such a meal on Thursday, March 17, 2011: Between 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Minden United Church (scroll down for location info.) dig in to St. Patrick’s Day Irish Stew and Biscuit Dinner.

St Patrick's Stew and Biscuits!

 

Earlier in the day on Thursday, March 17 there are several cool-sounding activities to take part in like:

Soapstone carving, wire sculpture, pillowcase sewing and design at the Minden Hills Cultural Centre through March 18 from 10:30 a.m. –  4 p.m. daily!

Culture Club in Minden

Also on March 17th, don’t miss ‘Bend It, Bead It’ at the Art Hive! This activity is open to ages 7+. See below for more details.

Lake Nipissing - Saturday, 3.12.11

I find this shot of Lake Nipissing to have an ethereal quality to it–and not only when the weather is grey like this (I’ve adjusted the photo to officially have ‘greytones’ but the skies reflected in the lake with the white ground cover made it look as if there were no colour in itany way. It just looks ‘cleaner’ now).

There is a definite melt taking place, more pronounced in some areas than others–some of the webcam shots are really illustrative of that.

PHOTOS: (Mostly) Maple Lake Ontario Memories

Ξ March 9th, 2011 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Canada, cottage country, family, Haliburton Highlands, Maple Lake Ontario, Ontario, Photography |


All the photos in this album were taken in Ontario, Canada. (The 80- year-old photo of my dad and his parents, Alice & Frank, was most likely taken in Ontario, though I cannot be 100% sure.)

Any photos of the family taken post- May 1955- pre 1990, unless she is in them, were taken by my mother, Margaret “Peggy” McCrackan who died on January 12, 2011.
Without my mom there to record them photographically, many moments would be lost to time passing. The downside of course is that we have few photos of her from 1955 – onward.
