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! […]

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 […]

Silent Vigil

January 8, 2015

I found today’s terrible event in France quite upsetting and frightening. This is not a current events blog by any means, but after seeing someone post this event on facebook, I felt compelled to go to the vigil. I was about an hour late, but there were a few people still there.

Collecting tablecloths

January 7, 2015

I need to start a new habit of taking photos during the day. Over the last month or so, I got used to taking photos at night of little dolls. Now it’s time to get out during the day with my camera and see the sights during daylight hours. I start work at 10 am, […]

Farewell, old friend

January 5, 2015

Tonight is the last night I’ll be sitting on the good, old Klick Klack. It’s full of crumbs and farts and a broken spring that pokes right into my butt. This is my side of the couch – Mike had a no photo request tonight due to illness. His hair is doing crazy things. We […]

Hippo birdies two ewes!

January 4, 2015

It was my sister’s birthday today and I nearly missed it! Congratulations, C@thy, for making another revolution around the sun. I hear you went to the movies and had mom’s awesome cupcakes for dinner! Sounds like the perfect birthday. Next time we go to JC Penny, we’ll have to find an updated pair of elephant […]
