  1. Hi Catherine! I’m a mom of one and soon-to-be two sometime mid/late April 2013. I’m currently the sole breadwinner for my family and in order for me to take a maternity leave we’ve decided to move to my mom’s cottage in the near-ish North when the ice melts off the lakes. From your blog it looks like I share a lot of your parenting and eco-living ideals, but I’d be particularly interested in knowing how you cope with black fly season and a LO in Northern ON. I’ll be perusing your older posts and checking back frequently 🙂

    • Hi Christina.
      How exciting that you are venturing up north this spring! I’ll give you a couple of options for black fly season in a future post (so far we have had luck without using anything on Little Man, but I have a store-bought product and an essential oils recipe that I want to try). Keep me posted on your interests in blog topics and any questions, Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hey Catherine!

    I love your blog. What a great idea. I will be a “follower”, but not in a creepy way…more in a supportive way! Although I have no plans to be a parent (in the foreseeable future or otherwise), I am always trying to find new ways of becoming more eco-conscious. For example, I have stopped using shampoo and gone for alternatives; I partake in nature hike with friends who have a HUGE knowledge of edible wilds and traditional medicines that I find in my own backyard; and this spring’s goal is to start a garden, including anything from edible flowers to rooted vegies. There’s more, but I’m more interested in reading what you have to say. I can’t wait to read more from your new blog! Hopefully, I can pick up some tips as you discover the secrets of eco-living in the north. And yes, in some ways I find it more difficult to maintain eco-friendly practices in the north. But, in some ways I’m also finding it easier.

    • Hilary. I am so glad you are interested in “Yeah Baby It’s Cold Outside.” I would love to hear all about your newfound knowledge of the plants local to your area. And your soon-to-be garden? What a great idea! I am giving you a nerdy eyeglass and pocket protector adjusting salute. Give the duck, and your dreamboat, a hug for me.
