The Lethbridge Veg

I'm so glad my little sister is blogging! She keeps feeding me new recipes to try, and passing on great blogs and other items she has found along her blogging travels.

Great news for Lethbridgians, Katho found a blog by a Lethbridge woman who is into growing her own food year round, preserving and canning, local producers, and vegetarian eating in Southern Alberta (not a simple thing to accomplish). The author's husband eats meat so some of her blog posts also include references to local meat producers who are doing things the ethical and organic way. Check it out over at The Lethbridge Veg. I was most impressed to see her listing interesting workshops happening in the Lethbridge area and pointing her readers to local independent businesses where you can buy food products you can feel good feeding to your friends and family.

Thanks for the tip, Katho!

Seasonal fun

I've been able to squeeze in a little seasonal fun lately, in between committee meetings and chapter revisions. Por ejemplo: introducing a new person to what we call snowshoeing. 
Miranda and Jacobus on frozen trail
The snowshoe crew, some of whom look more suspicious than others
And the best part of the holiday season, which can also be accomplished any time of year and was also a part of snowshoeing, spending time with good friends.

You might think this was taken when it was getting on later in the evening. But no. Still fairly early in the grand scheme of things.
So strange that I didn't foresee that night at the Alibi Room to be a big night. But oh, it was. And such a fun time was had by all!



*snort* too funny. I'm surprised this wasn't filmed in Vancouver, the yuppiest yuppery ville of socially competitive yoga.
