First Snowfall!

At midnight I forced made Jw follow me out to Shoppers because I really wanted a bottle of coke and KD. We opened the door and were greeted by light snow!! The moment we left Shoppers, it got heavier and I excitedly ran in it and tried to catch snowflakes, before I made him hurry home with me so we could take Joggy out because I thought he would miss the snow in Montreal.. I don't think he remembers it. He spent a good chunk of that walk licking the ground. I'll admit, I was kind of hoping he would turn his head to the sky and yelp excitedly while trying to catch snowflakes, but that didn't happen, so I didn't get an Instagram-worthy picture, which is the only reason why I don't have a picture for this.

I brought him outside again this morning when I went to make snowballs to take inside for Dumpling (hedgehogs can't be out in snow, unfortunately), and the moment he laid his paws on the snow, he did a little hand-stand thing, kind of like how puppies do when they're too young to balance and eat. I don't think he liked it at first. His reaction to snowballs:

 (He later sneakily stole that snowball out of my hands and ate it, which means he liked it).

His face when I made him stop eating snow.

I love it whenever it snows. Watching snow last night was kind of therapeutic. I love how snowflakes fall so gracefully. It feels as though time stops as they fall.

Today was definitely chilly, so Jw and I had ramen at Benkei Noodle Shop at Cambie and Broadway (not that great. The best ramen shop here is Marutama Ramen at Robson and Bidwell! ). Their cha shu rice was better than their noodles, in my opinion.  

And then we got warm and toasty at 49th Parallel! Their maple apple bacon fritters are my absolute favourite, but I tried a PB&J doughnut today and it was sooooo good. I love this place. Speaking of which, I wrote a guide on Main Street for 604now (49th was the first one on the list. Of course). Check it out here if you like. Stay warm, everyone!


  1. I always head down to Shoppers whenever I crave a bottle of coke too, haha! I haven't checked out 49th Parallel yet but I've heard so much about it!

    1. You have to!! It's worth the trip :) Happy Monday, Jess!
