Settled into our little stone house for the winter.....

Our Location:  Tehkummah, Ontario, Canada


(All photos taken with my phone)


The summer has faded and fall has arrived. Snow flurries have fallen a few times already. The leaves lay carpeting the ground where ever we look and the temps have dipped below freezing a number of times already. I think it is safe to assume that winter is not far off in the weeks ahead. 


Summer and fall have been a busy time for us and I had little time to do any blogging or reading of blogs. I also didn't feel very motivated to do either of those things. I'm not sure why but it's just the way things are here. 


Riley and I moved into a small two bedroom stone house in the little village of Tehkummah ( Tac-a-maw) for the winter. We hauled the Igloo out here to unload our necessaries on Oct 14, just a few days after Thanksgiving. In the time since then we've had the Igloo winterized and parked close to our spot on the hill, still accessible if necessary. We've enjoyed having family out to the house for dinner a couple of times and are just enjoying the warmth as we watch out the windows on some of the colder frosty and snowy mornings. It will be a very different winter for us this year and hopefully only ONE winter will need to be spent in the cold north and out of our Igloo. We are crossing our fingers and toes. 



I'm slowly starting to return to reading blogs and have managed to get caught up on a couple this morning before writing my own blog. I will get to answering all the replies from the two previous blogs before long but I don't think it will be today. It is nice to ride along with our friends Deb & Tom of Celebrating the Dance as they travel towards the southwest. We shall enjoy your posts this winter as your photos and words offer us snow bound Canadians comfort knowing someone is enjoying the desert this winter. 


I will post from time to time during the winter months, although I doubt we will have much to post about. Pretty quiet in our neighbourhood. Thanks for stopping by, until next time...  Stay safe, take care, be healthy. 




  1. Good to hear that you will be safe and sound for the winter and hopefully warm also. I will miss following you for what was to be your southernly travels . It has been one heck of a year and the end to this madness is still out of my sight . Take care . Vern in Boise Id

  2. Hope to hear from you soon.
    Like the rest of us try to Enjoy this Winter and stay Safe.

    It's about time.

  3. Happy to hear that you two are also settled in for the winter. We'll all be safe and warm and like you I emphasize ONE when I speak of how many winters we plan to stay home!
    Enjoy your new adventure as we will be and yes, T & D need to have more than triple the fun for all of us!

  4. Sounds as if you two and Princess are in for the winter. Glad to hear all is well and look forward to hearing from you this winter.

  5. Thanks for the update. Good to know you have a place to be warm. I hope you enjoy your ONE winter there. Can you believe we have been running the AC in the afternoon. Three more days of 95-100 temps. Too hot for me. Check my Facebook for pictures of our current location. Totally different from Pilot Knob! Take care....

  6. Thanks for the update. Nice to know that you have found a nest for this winter. Such a different year for us RVers. Slowly coming to grips with out first winter in Canada in over 20 years.

    Interesting mushrooms. Stay warm.

  7. I am still on the quest to catch up. Tom and I will be glad to have you along virtually this winter at the same time we sincerely hope next year we will be visiting in person.
    Somehow reading little stone house in Tehkummah conjures up a pretty little English village in my mind. I have no idea why it just does. Tom and I hope both of you spend a lovely cozy winter there. Stay safe. Hugs to you both.
