Weekend Plans


I don't know what your plans for the weekend are, but I just read our weather forecast and
it is going to be dreary with light snows here. So my plan is to put my feet up in the recliner and
finish reading this book I received from my daughter and her family for Christmas.

Emily seems to think that I have an adventurous spirit, but let me tell you it is nothing
compared to this lady who built cabins, did her own plumbing, and guided people
on outback camping trips-Well, I could go on and on. She is one amazing
lady! Having been to the Boundary waters in the US and Canada both, I truly
appreciate reading  Justine Kerfoot's story.
And Tim & I have been to Grand Marais MN many times too, where the
Gunflint Trail begins.
This book my son and DIL bought for me. As you can see it has very detailed
information for gardening. I love it! So I'm going to read and dream it this
weekend too.
Now because I know you're all going to want to see a close up of my moccasins and have
questions about them (wink), I will tell you that these are not the $260.-$320. ones we sold
in the gallery I managed in the NWT. Our gallery moccasins were hand scraped moose hide
that was smoked by the Dene peoples, then sewn and beaded. I bought mine in the Yukon three
years ago for $80., which was a really good price for them.
This was our moccasin case in the gallery. I had one mother from Toronto tell me that she
couldn't come home without a pair for her daughter last winter. The big fashion rage there
was to wear moccasins all winter and the 'Canada Goose' parka's. We had to laugh because
we couldn't imagine it ever getting that cold in Toronto. After all, Canada Goose, is what
people in the Sub-Arctic and Arctic wear!! Well, it was great for our sales anyway. Now...
A Very Important Announcement
We all know that after Feb.29th any of our followers who
do not use Google (blog spot) will be dropped from our
followers widget on our sidebars.  Because of this I chose
to offer a Linky Follower for my friends who do not use
Blogger. If this pertains to you, please become a Linky
Follower now! It is very easy and because I appreciate
having you as a blogging friend, I would really miss you!
I'm going now to search the friends I follow that are not with Google and become a Linky
follower on their sites.
I hope you have a great weekend-Kimberly

  2. That book looks like something I'd like!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the weekend. Oh,, for just a glimpse of snow. We hit 80 degrees here in the south yesterday and this morning I have been glued to the t,v, as we are under a dreaded tornado watch. Give me cold weather any time. Enjoy your snuggle time.

    Hey, I have never seen his announcement until now. Thanks for the heads up.

  5. Your moccasins are really beautiful. I'll keep following you on Blogger okay? I'm not doing Linky with those who are still on blogger. Your new garden book looks like a good read. You'll be an expert gardener when your done. :) There's a big storm coming here tonight and tomorrow. It is so nice and sunny here today - the calm before the storm. Enjoy the weekend staying cozy. Hugs, Pamela

  8. Love your moccasions. I can remember paying $39 about 20 years ago which seemed a fortune back then. I finally wore the soles out..but boy were they comfortable. Have fun reading! xo Diana

  9. Love those moccasins, so very pretty and warm looking..I'm afraid my cat would get some 'ideas' about them though! Have a great weekend, friend. xo

    Hugs,, Noreen

  17. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a weekend.

  18. When I lived and worked on a reserve in Sask. a few decades ago I had a pair of moccasins. I remember the smoky scent of the tanned hide lasted for a very long time.
