The view from up here

August 17, 2014

Mike & I headed over to the North Shore today to visit a pal who just bought a lovely new place in Lynn Valley. His place was very close to the Suspension Bridge, so we toodled up to the park, along with many, many other people. I hate to sound like an old person, but […]

“Just Like Grandma’s”

August 16, 2014

I think Johanna and I are becoming afternoon tea connoisseurs. Today we went on an adventure about 15 minutes away from where we live – all the way to Delta. I thought the tea house was actually in Surrey, but it is not. It’s located right across the street from Surrey in Delta. Of course […]

Quilting is danger

August 14, 2014

Actually, make that, NOT quilting is danger. Tonight’s meeting was a short one – as to be expected in August. Lots of people away on vacation. After show and tell was over (photos of actual quilts later!) we had some time to chit chat and I finally got my membership up to date. I am […]

Birdie num num

August 13, 2014

I just have to say I had a BANNER day at the office today. I really did. I won’t go into too much worky work details, but know that I went on a “studio crawl” put on by the Vancouver Economic Commission. They put us on a bus that dropped us off in Yaletown and […]

Serious art is serious.

August 12, 2014

Last Saturday we visited our pal, Tami, up at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park – right next to the Conservatory. We also went inside and took photos of the birds in there, but I’ll leave those photos for another day. We were really busy last Saturday. Bands, birds and art all in one day. […]

Zumba!

August 12, 2014

Full disclosure: I’ve never been to Zumba before today and the reason why I am blogging about it is because I had a great time! And that’s the truth. I actually remembered to bring my gym strip to work today and I joined my coworker for a free Zumba class under The Sails at the […]

Band after band after band…

August 10, 2014

I am very well rested after last night’s activities. I spent the afternoon leisurely editing photos. Here are some of my favourites WITH honourary awards! I love awards! It reminds me when I worked at a company that tried an award system for the staff called, “A Pat on the Back”. If one of your […]

Best Sweater Award

August 10, 2014

We shot a bunch of bands tonight at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver for The Annual Landmark Showcase Festival FINALS. I am beat. More photos in the morning. I just have to tell you I have awards to give. We saw some great bands and they all had their schticks. There was a flip flop […]

I nearly forgot these ones

August 7, 2014

I nearly forgot to post these photos from the oldie time farm house we visited last weekend – right in time for this weekend. This has been longest short week on record. Worky work was EXTREMELY worky these 4 days. But next week? It’s going to be awesome. I have a ticket to SIGGRAPH. Sweet! […]

Chickadee legs. And bum.

August 6, 2014

I noticed a couple of teeny, tiny little chickadees while in my travels yesterday. This tree was absolutely filled with bugs – they were flying under the leaves and I believe these little birds were having a bug feast. I’ve never thought of baby chickadees before  – clearly I’m not a birder – but I […]
