I chose my blog name for two reasons. It gets cold here in the winter, very cold. I should also add that it gets very hot here in the summer, winter just feels so much longer. As for the challah, if I don t bake it we don t eat it.
I lead a fairly average, happy life. I am a busy, not too busy, mother of four who enjoys among other things, reading blogs.
I love living in northern Ontario but on occasion I feel isolated from the Jewish community. I started reading blogs (not that long ago) during Operation Cast Lead as a way to connect with the greater community out there and I have been hooked ever since. So now it seems to me that it is my time to enter my voice into the great big blogosphere. I hope that you can relate to our lives or if not that we are somewhat interesting to you. If not, I hope you find a different blog that appeals to you.
Our family consists of myself (Momma Bear), my husband (Papa Bear), our eldest son (The Artiste), our twin boys (Seek and Destroy) and our youngest and only daughter (Sports Girl).
Since I mentioned bears you might like to know that we had a young bear on our front lawn last week. I did not get to see it but a neighbour took a picture for us. I am no great fan of bears, but yes, I know we are in their territory. Although, we have been here for so long I question this argument. We have watched their appearances become more and more frequent since the cancellation of the spring bear hunt. To all you big city animal lovers come play on my lawn any time. : )
On that friendly note, welcome to my blog.
To anyone commenting on my blog I will make the same request of you that I make of my children when they go to friends houses or almost anywhere in public: Be a mensch.
I look forward to hearing from you and I hope you enjoy my blog.
