Frosty Flour Mill 

I am feeling blessed that my capture of the the Esterhazy Flour Mill on a beautiful hoarfrost day has connected with so many people. Thanks to Tourism Saskatchewan that shared this photo on their social media a couple of years ago, this photo reached thousands of people. There were countless comments and stories from people's past of the days when they would visit this flour mill or one just like it. Construction was completed in 1907, making it the oldest and most complete flour mill of heavy post and beam construction remaining in Saskatchewan. Like other mills of the period, wheat delivered here by local farmers would be processed into flour, bran and other products. The flour mill contains original turn-of-the-century milling equipment including grinders, sifter, bucket elevators and bagging machines, and is is attached to an elevator for storing grain. The grain elevator is of wood crib construction and has a sloped shoulder roofline. The Esterhazy flour mill stands as a reminder of the importance of flour mills in the development of Saskatchewan Grain Industry. Designated as a provincial heritage property in 2005, it also joined the family of national historic sites in 2007 with its designation as a National Historic Site of Canada. 

One of my Instagram followers commented: "I remember riding around the flour mill on my bike with a banana seat as a kid. Can't believe it's still there. What a beautiful photo." I am grateful to have such a historic building in my hometown of Esterhazy and blessed to have this capture of it framed by the beauty of winter.

Peace, Love & Music at Woodstock Tribute Concert 

I had a grooooovy time channeling Janis Joplin to kick off the Woodstock Generation Tribute Concert at the Maple Leaf Theatre in Esterhazy. (For a listen, click HERE)✌️ It was such a fun night of performances from many talented local musicians, donned in their hippie threads for the occasion, and it was also a great opportunity for the community to come together to help collect funds that were donated to the MS Society of Canada.

Mother-Daughter Music 

It's been soooooo special performing with my fifteen year old daughter Skye this year. We had a great time performing a couple shows at the Sandy Lake Clubhouse at Sandy Lake, Manitoba this past summer, our beloved summer stomping grounds, along with the regular Open Mic nights that I host in our hometown of Esterhazy at the lovely Whippletree Coffee, and last weekend was a treat performing at Arbuckle's Fine Eatery and Curiosity Shop in Binscarth. We love to harmonize with each other, which I think is something we were born to do as it comes very natural for the both of us. It's quite heart-warming to hear comments from people at our shows on how much they love our harmonies. I've been super proud of Skye's progress on the guitar, and now we're able to have two guitars on a few songs, which I know we'll keep building on. I am truly blessed and grateful for these wonderful mother-daughter musical experiences we get to share with each other❤️ Click here to view a recent video of us singing together?

Artist-In-Residence 

I was thrilled to be an artist-in-residence and share my knowledge and love of photography at Wonderscape Art Retreat this past weekend at Arlington Beach in Saskatchewan. "Photographer and artist-in-residence, Katie Miller Photography was busy this past weekend! She facilitated an excellent hands-on workshop that got people snapping! Thanks for all your prep, thoughtful ideas and sharing your expertise so generously at Wonderscape." - Tricia Friesen Reed (Executive Director and Programmer at Wonderscape Creative Arts Inc.)

 

FLOWERS ON THE SUN is my favourite song on my album, A New Day, and was inspired by a note my son wrote when he was four years old, which consisted solely of those four words. I thought it was beautiful and called it his first poem. I saved the note and years later, I crafteded this song about nature, the environment, and how humankind must be proactive in protecting this beautiful planet for many generations to come.
