Ingrid Wildman Photo, Bookkeeping, Prairies North Magazine
Prairies North Magazine is growing thanks to our subscribers and advertisers! We want to introduce you to our newest staff members, and have some fun at the same time. We asked each new staff member to answer 3 questions for us, and have posted their answers for you to see. Here we introduce Ingrid Wildman, who is in charge of Finance and Bookkeeping now that our previous financial guru, Marla T., has retired from the magazine.
1. What is your favourite Saskatchewan memory?
My favourite Saskatchewan memories both include my husband. My husband, Doug, is originally from San Diego. When we moved back to Saskatchewan in December 1996 we drove our U-Haul from Oregon to Caronport, Saskatchewan. The look on Doug’s face as we drove to our destination through a snow storm will always be comical to me. He thought we were going to a place like Siberia and couldn’t believe that the snow was falling sideways!
My other favourite memory was a New Years Eve when Doug and another friend (who happens to be Chilean) volunteered to try and light the fireworks for our New Years Eve celebration. While the rest of the people who grew up in Saskatchewan waited indoors by the window, the “southerners” tried very hard to light the fireworks with frozen hands and wicks that wouldn’t light. Needless to say, there haven’t been fireworks on New Years Eve since.
2. What is your favourite Saskatchewan place?
Jan Lake Lodge would probably be my favourite place. Every summer growing up our family would go fishing there. And now that I have my own family, we continue the tradition. The beautiful sunsets, quiet nights listening to the loons on the lake, campfires, and shore lunches are wonderful memories.
3. What is your favourite Saskatchewan food?
My favourite Saskatchewan food is only associated with Saskatchewan because that’s where I grew up. But it stems from my Swedish heritage, which has continued on generations later in Canada. No...it’s not lutefisk or pickled herring! “Krumkake” is a thin waffle cookie with a cream filling. That’s what I’m calling my favourite Saskatchewan food.
