The End?

The end of the year is one more day away..
Only one post this month....there has not too much to blog about..
We have been enjoying our winter stay here..
even if the temperature tonight is -9 celcius..we are toasty warm and...
yes the ground is has actually been white all month...
there have been many walks to the 'beach'..

and many photos from this 'position'..

.and we even had the lovely 'pleasure' of being sick for a while..

..thank goodness for 'drugs'..before long we were back to some semblance of normal..
before we knew it the last week before Christmas was here..

..Our little group of Winter Zero's dwindled down over the Christmas season..two of them making trips to the neighboring province of Alberta to visit that left Doug to look after 'two homes on wheels'..checking furnaces, heaters and inside temperatures and shoveling driveways kept him busy..

..we had some furnace issues as well..seems the 'sail switch' on our propane furnace decided it was tired of working at 2 am one morning...A quick call to the mobile rv guy here in Osoyoos in the morning and within two days were back up and running in no time..our bank account a bit lighter but we were very happy with the speedy service..
Brenda and Ken came through Osoyoos on their way to Vancouver..we had a lovely breakfast at a local restaurant..
and they gave us a tin of baked goodies and two pairs of knitted slippers!!
our collection of Christmas cards this year!..nice to see this tradition is still alive and well..
Christmas morning..just the 'four of us'..

..the gifts were unwrapped in no time...

We had an invitation to go to Karen's sister's for a Christmas lunch in Okanagan Falls..
so we made the trek about 45 minutes away..we could hardly wait for the 'hot turkey sandwiches'!
We had a lovely visit with Ron and Karen and Cheryl and Andy.. before we knew it we were heading back home ..another 'dinner' at the clubhouse with our 'park peeps'..
So that pretty much sums up the month of December..and 2015..
Our New Years Eve will  be spent with our favorite Winter Zero's at the local as the year comes to an end..we want to wish all our readers a very Happy and Healthy New Year..see you all in 2016


  1. Kathy and I are wishing you a Safe and Healthy 2016.

    It's about time.

  2. Happy New Year to both of you as well. May it be totally fabulous!

  3. Don't scare me with a post title like that! What you need is to bring yourselves down to the southern U. S. for the winter. Then it would be summertime forever for you two and you would have plenty to post about.

  4. Oh, my gosh! So that's what it looks like camping in snow! Thank goodness for full hook-ups, right? And here I am at Quartzsite, dry-camping in barely freezing weather, sorry I have to run my Wave 3 propane heater all night. (Something I've never done until the last few weeks.) You guys are pretty hardy!

    Have a Happy New Year, and I hope it will be a wonderful 2016! :)

  5. Very nice blog, you make winter camping look magical. Happy new year to you! Helen & Paul

  6. Happy New Year to my favorite Canadian RVers! May 2016 be your best year ever!

  7. Happy New Year from the Dixons. Have a warm toasty 2016.

  8. Looks like you had wonderful white Christmas! Wishing you both a Very Happy New Year! All the best in 2016!

  9. Happy New Year Doug and Sue--it's a little chilly in Arizona this year but at least there is no snow, (yet!)

  10. I don't think I could have made it two days without heat! Happy New Year to you.

  11. Sounds like you had a very nice December, minus the being sick of course. Glad you had a very Merry Christmas and hope you have a Happy New Year and all the best to you in 2016.

  12. Looks like a fun December. We know how it feels to be sick this month. Paul just got over a cold and now I have it. We will ring in 2016 right from our 5er living room. I don't want to spread my sickness to any one.

    Happy New Year to you both.

  13. The snow is beautiful. Happy Hew Year, Sue and Doug!

  14. Happy New Year! The snow pictures are certainly beautiful, but I don't think I could stay warm enough in the RV!

  15. Happy New Year to you both! A looks good - since our house is cold you are probably as warm as we are! Good looking Christmas gifts .... is that Ree's new cookbook?!!! Lucky lady! I have it on order from the library - it could take a while......

  16. Albeit late with catching up on blogs, we stand to wish you both a great 2016. Happy camping and happy travels too.

  17. Happy New Year, Sue & Doug! Grant lamented when he read about your "sail switch"!! Oh No!! Glad they could fix it, especially at -9 C!!
    Molly is jealous of Tucker playing in the snow. We have had only frozen grass for her to do "snow angels" in. LOL
    Stay warm and enjoy the Winter Wonderland for us! Kathy


Aww nuts…

How on earth does someone do a recap of the past seven months?… The last post that I did was on May forward to today, December 3...
