Saturday Snippets: 31.December.2016

Holy moly, can anyone else believe that we’re at the end of 2016 already? One year ago, we were wondering as to whether we would be in The Van and on our travels. Jonty gave it a 50% chance, I thought around 75% and Jonty’s brother an optimistic 90% chance. While we’re definitely not on the road with a finished van, we’ve made reasonable progress. We’ve told everyone it WILL be finished in 2017, so now the pressure’s on ๐Ÿ˜‰

We spent the holidays in Saskatchewan, with my side of the family, and had a wonderful time. The week went by quickly, with lots of visiting and eating and drinking, and very little time online. As such, I’m anticipating another Saturday Snippets that is light on the words and heavy on the photos.

So here are a few things that caught our eye online in the word of climbing, eating, cycling and repeating. Our Saturday Snippets for 31.December. 2016.

And now for a few holiday pictures.

Christmas was filled with stocking and Christmas sweaters and backyard ice hockey. A Christmas-day birthday and just-because cinnamon buns. A few tasty local craft breweries and lots and lots of coffee ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Weekend and Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year! Looks like you guys had a lovely and cozy holiday ๐Ÿ™‚ Our holiday entailed lots and lots of coffee as well. Loving the way you ground your coffee by the way (very creative)!

    1. Happy New Year to you too, Hayley! Brothers-in-law and power tools… what can I say ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope your holidays were relaxing and restorative.
