I climbed up the first set of stairs but I thought twice about taking those steps in the second photo. Instead I opted to walk up the road a little further down the path.

Monday Windows – January 25, 2021

….thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Windows, https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2021/01/25/monday-window-january-25-2021/

On Saturday my husband I took a trip to Ball’s Falls Conservation Area. During our walk we came across this lovely heritage site owned by Mr. Ball and his family back in the 1800s. The windows pictured here are from the grist mill where grains were ground to make flour and the St. George Anglican Church which was moved to the site when the parish had to build a bigger church back in the 1960s. The actual move took place in 1974.

International Handwriting Day

January 23rd was International Handwriting Day

I know I’m now a couple of days late to make this announcement but at the time I thought it was interesting. Handwriting really has become a lost art. In honour of the day I created a simple piece of art and second abstract piece.
