Looking

October 7, 2014

Whoa! I am up late on a school night. After meeting up with some friends, I took long train ride home. A very long train ride. I won’t go into the details, but I could not stop looking at someone on the train who had her thumb and her first finger in her nostril. Two […]

Reflection

October 5, 2014

I took this yesterday at the fountain at the Vancouver Art Gallery while waiting for the Murder Tour to start. Today was not nearly as exciting – I had to work and spent most of the day inside. Too bad. It was a glorious, sunny day and felt like summer. So much like summer, I […]

The Murder Tour

October 5, 2014

One of Mike’s buddies accidentally bought two sets of tickets to a Vancouver Murder tour and asked us if we’d like to join him, his girlfriend and a few others. I probably never would have even thought to do this, so I’m glad I was a recipient of this accidental purchase. I learned a few […]

Time. For. Dinner.

October 3, 2014

Oscar and Donner get fed dinner at 10 pm. After Donner had his teeth removed, we started feeding both boyz wet food and Oscar LOVES it. Somehow he knows when it’s time for dinner – he’ll give me the Oscar stare around 9:30. Very unnerving. About 9:50, he’ll start poking me with his pointy claws, […]

Brought to you by the letter, “W”.

Worky work is getting very busy – the last portfolio show of the year is next week and we’ve got plenty to do before the big day. I’ll be working this weekend and my coworker and I will get everything prepared. We will even have a floor plan ready for tomorrow. I feel so grown […]

“In the unlikely event…”

September 30, 2014

I had quite the eye opening day today. As part of the Health and Safety committee at work (and being the Fire Warden of the 10th floor) I was required to take an earthquake and fire safety course this morning, followed by a fire drill. Today I learned that: 1) Canada had 3,348 earthquakes last […]

Aerial Views

September 29, 2014

I’m not sure what I like best about these photos. It could be the heart print of my nightgown, or my blue toenails (that polish has lasted a long time) or Oscar looking like a koi fish at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden – which reminds me, we need to go there for Halloween. […]

September 28, 2014

1) dishes 2) laundry 3) a little bit of sewing 4) cutting up Christmas fabric into 5 inch squares 5) sorting out my Christmas fabric bin and wondering why I put Elvis fabric in the Christmas bin. I mean, other than that one piece of Christmas Elvis fabric? 6) checking my ello page – I’m […]

Community service

September 27, 2014

Over the last few days, we noticed someone had left his or her shoes on one of the lawns near our place. After several days of seeing them out in the rain, we decided to bring out the snow shovel (ew! Don’t touch them with your hands! GROSS!) and put them to rest in the […]

Using what I’ve got

September 26, 2014

Bonnie and her bird and ocean quilt I hit a bottle neck with my quilt guild photos last month, and now I need to get caught up for 2 months. I usually sit down for a couple of hours and do it in one big batch, but lately my schedule’s a bit choppy and I […]
