Counting the sheep

February 22, 2015

Yesterday afternoon before the Maria Bamford show, Mike and I wandered around Granville Street and the surrounding areas. After following the drum beats to Holt Renfrew to see the Lion Dancers, we headed a couple of blocks over the Vancouver Art Gallery and found about a billion little sheep covering the grassy area of the […]

The Lion Dance

February 22, 2015

  After work today – Yup. It happens sometimes. We work the occasional weekends – it’s okay. It worked out well because Mike had to work, too. We met up and headed out on a very long photowalk up Granville Street. We were only about half a block into the walk when I heard the loud […]

Happy Year of the Goat or Sheep or Ram*

February 19, 2015

I forgot I had this teensy sheep in my china cabinet. This little guy was picked up many moons ago at a store we used to frequent in Khobar, Saudi Arabia. The shop was nick named, “The Waterford Crystal & LEGO Store” because, well, that’s what they sold. Something for everyone! That was a good […]

Happy Chinese New Year Eve

February 18, 2015

Today is Chinese New Year’s Eve. I did as much cleaning as I could muster and took out all the garbages. I think that’s one of the most important things to do. I really should have dusted the TVs because WHOA. Hopefully the Chinese New Year spirits will turn a blind eye to that. Added […]

Spotted! Blossoms!

February 17, 2015

Whoa. I guess this is seriously spring. Unless we experience a severe cold snap, I think spring has sprung for us on the West Coast. First, magnolia blossoms, and some of them are nearly open, way past the bud stage. And…the cherry blossoms aren’t quite as close to opening, but they are getting ready.

Meanwhile, back at Sasquatch Park…

February 16, 2015

DISCLAIMER: This photo was taken yesterday. It was sunny and warm (14 degrees Celsius or so). I am so sorry if you’re reading this from out east. I understand you’ve had “SOME” snow. We’ve also had numerous reports of cherry blossoms around Vancouver. I haven’t seen any. YET. Anyway, yesterday, at the Sasquatch Park – […]

Day trip to Sasquatch Land

February 15, 2015

Mike and I headed out on an adventure today all the way to Harrison, BC. Harrison is about an hour away from us and, apparently, the Sasquatch capital of the world? Perhaps that’s pushing it, but definitely of BC. This is the first I heard of this, but to be fair, I’m not up on […]

The new Bruvah

February 14, 2015

All I can say is, Happy Valentines Day to me! Mike bought me a new sewing machine (that I will never, ever take apart.). This meant that he got to watch TV and play World of Warcraft all afternoon all by himself. Happy Valentines Day to HIM! I carefully unpacked my new sewing robot (he […]

Paparazzi in Yaletown

February 13, 2015

I had another event to attend tonight for work, but this time, it was in the fancy part of town – Yaletown. I don’t frequent that part of town very often. Not for any reason in particular, but mostly because the skytrain I take doesn’t go that way AND I don’t have a tiny dog […]

Getting our Chinese New Year treats

February 12, 2015

Tonight after a worky work networking event (which was successful! Yay! I didn’t have to read a book in the bathroom waiting for the frat boys to finish their shenanigans. That happened once at a networking event I went to a couple of years ago.) *Also, I just made a typo – newtworking. That could […]
