Nova Scotia is a wonderful place. Look at the wildlife in Berwick! I was very still when I took this photo – careful not to scare these deer away. I’m sending this to National Geographic right away. Actually, I’ll wait for them to find me. It’s way cooler to be discovered that way.
I am blog blocked AGAIN. Also, craft/sewing blocked. This has been a doozy. I haven’t done too much creative-related in a few months. I’m not sure what’s going on. One thing that may help is doing a big clean up. Weirdly that helps. I’ve done that a few times. The yard’s been neglected this summer. Maybe I could start there.
Also it is taking me hours to type just 200 words. I’ve been typing for the last 2 hours. Typing, deleting, typing, deleting.
I have no idea what’s going on. Maybe I’ll just post photos for awhile and no writing?
Let’s see what happens tomorrow.
I’m not sure what it means when you and your loved one go to the local cemetery on your anniversary to take photos, but that’s what Mike and I did last Saturday. Before the big wind storm of 2015! I’d never been to this cemetery before, but it has an enormous Chinese and Asian area. I just hung out there because I really liked the different tombstones, letters, characters and, of course, that beautiful dragon. It’s an amazing, huge sculpture with lots of scales carved into it and a interesting shaped tail.
In between the day I took this photo and today, Mike bought us some new editing software!
Can you tell?
I rarely like black and white, but I do like this crazy filter. It makes the photo look haunted and that’s a look I always like. Especially now that it’s unofficially Fall. It certainly felt like it today. It poured rain for most of the day and was a little blustery. But did I mind? NO! It was welcomed! I missed the rain and am sorely out of practice.
Maybe I should start a weather blog because that’s all I seem to be talking about lately.
Nah. Frankie MacDonald pretty much has the market cornered on that front.
Guess who’s back?
Sorry to rub it in to all those people in the Lower Mainland without power still. But we had a pretty fun day going to the movie theatre across the street again to see, Inside Out. So cute. That movie was great. I loved it. And there was a cute short animation before it about Hawaiian Islands. You can see a clip of it here. Adorable!

ZOMG! We had such an adventure today – this, our 17th anniversary. I know! How do we stay so young, you may ask? I have no idea! We keep having anniversaries and birthdays and stay the same age. At least, that’s what my brain keeps telling me.
Anyway, we came home after a breakfast of French Toast and a photowalk in the local cemetery (do we know how to party or what?) and walked across the street to the movie theatre to see, Inside Out (in 3D, of course.). Side note: this is the first time we’ve been to this little theatre and it was great. Well kept, comfy seats and the price is right. We should have been going to that theatre all along. But now we know.
ANYWAY, we’re watching the cute 3D movie and the BOMP. The movie stops. We don’t know what is happening for a few minutes, but then we get asked to leave because the power went out. NO! How is this possible? The weather was pretty windy, but the temperature was quite warm, so it was weird to wear a jacket because it was hot. I’ve been in worse storms before by far, so it seemed weird this one was so damaging. We saw other places around Vancouver where trees had been uprooted and everything, so maybe we got it less severe out our way?
We walked home with our free passes for another movie with popcorn! Bonus for us, but bummer for the owner. Oh well. We’ll go back. Once back in our complex, broken branches were all over the ground and it smelled like Christmas trees.
