Here is a smattering of wintry goodness. Even though we are heading into summer down here in Australia, these are the winters of childhood-- growing up in Montreal.
This is also my submission for They Draw And Cook's holiday recipe contest.
Hope you like! (the illustration, and the recipe! :)

So… we don't actually celebrate Thanksgiving down here in the good ol' S of A, this is the closest thing I could find…
This is what I am most thankful for: Nadene and I on one of our many walks along Table Mountain :)
Happy turkey day everyone!

The Snow Dog image and haiku I did a few years ago seem to fit the topic this week:
Here’s the haiku, in case you can’t read it in the image:
Big white puppy dog,
Looks just like a polar bear,
Likes to hide in snow
I’ve always liked this big white puppy dog and polar bears too.
What’s your favorite animal that likes snow?

When I was a kid, I used to love cardboard boxes. Making forts and houses, kitchens and cars and everything imaginable. With the coming holidays, I'm also reminded of how during the preparation of our holiday dinners, my siblings, cousins and I were often shooed outside during the day to play...and to stay out of the way of the adults!

There is something so very magical about the first season's snow.
All white, bright, clean and crunchy!
I love it.
To all my wonderful friends here at Watercolor Wednesdays
I wanted to let you all know that because of my scheduled
relocation and work schedule, that I won't be able to
participate in WAWE for a little while.
I have to take a break to catch my breathe and rest
for the long journey ahead. I will be back after some
rest and after things are settled.
I'll be by to visit of course. You talented Ladies
and Gentlemen are AWESOME!!!. Keep posting all your
fabulous work and encourage each others. Linda
I send you all my love my talented friend.
Everyone have a wonderful Holiday Season with
family and friends. Be blessed!

Here is an oldie but a goodie. It is of course Spring here in the southern hemisphere, but admittedly it still feels like Winter!
Hope you are enjoying Autumn/Fall in the north -- it really is one of my favourite seasons...
Oh, and just wanted to let you all know that I am having a giveaway on my blog for the release of my new children's book! Please visit! :)
