Mini daffs at night

January 20, 2015

A long, long time ago, back in the 1900s, I lived in a blustery, wintery city in Alberta. And one time in February, I hopped on a plane to visit my aunt & uncle in White Rock. They took me to Granville Island and I could not believe the flowers that were in bloom in […]

Dreaming of Vegas

January 18, 2015

So many people on my Facebook feed are either IN Vegas right now or heading out to Vegas. I have been going through some of my photos and reminiscing. We had such a good time! Riding the bus down to Old Vegas, taking photos of the bands, the shark tank at The Golden Nugget, shopping […]

The day that was a very good day.

January 17, 2015

Some days are just banner days. This one was one of those days. I consumed many things (which is not supposed to make you happy, but it was very satisfying, nonetheless.). We started the day off by picking up the matching ottoman to the couch. HUZZAH. This is how that looked: I didn’t even turn […]

Meat and 2 Veg Pizza

January 16, 2015

This took me a long time to make. And we gobbled it up in about 15 minutes. This is a pizza crust made of cauliflower. I substituted ground chickpeas for ground almonds and it worked just fine. I didn’t try to eat it like a regular pizza – I used a knife & fork. It […]

Wait! I can explain!

January 15, 2015

The local thrift store is open until 9 pm and is conveniently located right near the bus exchange. If I need to pick up some groceries on my way home, I always peek in to see what’s new on the shelves. And yes! A lovely turkey tchotchke WAS on my list of things I needed. Absolutely! […]

Meow.

January 14, 2015

I came right home after work tonight and just started sewing. I am on a mission to finish my Robert Kaufman Challenge quilt for Quilting Bee. It turned out differently than I thought it would. I thought I’d do a few more kitty faces and then have a lot of negative space around them – […]

Look up

January 13, 2015

I quickly snapped this photo near a construction site after work. I didn’t get out during daylight hours again, but I did step out for a late lunch around 4 pm and it was still light out. Hooray! I think the days are slowly getting longer. I spotted this sign in the window of some […]

Fresh air

January 11, 2015

I’m not usually a fresh air person these days, but around 2 pm, I felt like I should get out and get some fresh air into my lungs. Mike and I headed over to the Boundary Bay Dyke Trail near the Delta Heritage Air Park. On the way, we saw many bald eagles, an entire […]

Giving the new couch a workout

January 10, 2015

Donner and I spent a good portion of the day  sleeping on the new couch. Little Donner sleeps like this – face down. I’m not sure how he can be comfortable sleeping like this, but this is a frequent sight around the house during the day. In a surprise move by me, I finally tapped […]

What quilts?

January 8, 2015

Tonight was Quilting Bee Night. And not just any old Quilting Bee Night, but world famous DE-STASH night. It’s the night when we bring in all our sewing related items we no longer want or use, throw them on a table and then hunt around to see if there’s anything we like and take it […]
