The Morning Winter Returned

winter returned - snow covered house and trees - fernie bc

Waking up to snow on the ground was a bit of a shock. With a forecast of temperatures ranging from -4 to 13 degrees, I doubt we’ll be enjoying the beautiful sight for long. We began our morning with a quick trip to Knox United Church only to find out Parent Tot Fun Times wasn’t running today. I should have known but I was hoping that some programs were still running during March Break. Instead of heading home I took my kids out for brunch at The Blue Toque. I love that place. Tanya came out with some fruit for my kids (without ordering it) and was just being awesome with suggestions for me and accommodating for the kids. I found a few Dr Seuss books for the kids to read while we waited, which really helped. An unexpected pleasant experience! Bonus, from my table I could look out the entryway and see some of Nick George’s wood sculptures (not an easy thing to keep my kids from touching.)

Because I would like to introduce some workshops to Phoenix in the near future (pottery or a messy art class) I took the kids on a tour of some of the studios at The Arts Station. We saw the beautiful pieces the weavers were working on and the pottery studio in the basement. I’m hoping by exposing these things to her she will feel more comfortable with them. Crossing my fingers.
