The Steps

August 22, 2015

After a less than stellar Faturday breakfast (Never. Again.) – I won’t mention the name of the restaurant, but it was sadly lacking in all aspects. This is not a restaurant review blog (lucky for them) so just know we have learned from this unpleasant experience and moved on. In an effort to cleanse the […]

Tiny paper pieces

August 20, 2015

This is a little hand stitching project to take with me while I commute and listen to podcasts on the skytrain. Each diamond shape is about an inch and a half long, so it will take a very long time before it’s big enough to cover anything. It hardly uses any fabric at all, so […]

I think this sums today up.

August 19, 2015

With the exception of having dinner with Maria and Jason, I will have to call this entire day a bust. I’m glad it’s over. I’m going to bed and getting as much sleep as I can squeeze in and then try again tomorrow. Hopefully there will be less cat pee to clean up tomorrow. Seriously, […]

Rabbts too!!

August 18, 2015

It’s been nearly 3 weeks since The Big Ex in Nova Scotia and I’ve still got photos to show! How many times can one person miss oxen? A lot. Let me tell you. I’m going to get one of my oxen photos blown up, maybe even the one with his tongue up his own nose. […]

Cooling temperatures

August 17, 2015

This was my view tonight after a lively Zumba session on the pier at Canada Place. It was good to get back to that. I missed it 2 weeks in a row. The movements were a little easier today and I couldn’t help but notice the weather was cooler than 2 weeks ago. CRAP. I […]

Morning glory 4 ways

August 16, 2015

I took photos of this purple morning glory yesterday at the Historic Stewart Farm. Lovely! But I believe they are still considered an invasive species even if they are so pretty and seem to glow in the middle. Today Mike was at work at an ungodly hour – he left the house at 6 am. […]

Beauty Mark

August 15, 2015

We decided to have a lazy day today (THANK GOODNESS). We went out to Historic Stewart Farm for an easy photo walk. Sadly, the house was closed (I think for a wedding), but the garden and the orchard were still open for business so we helped ourselves to photos. We did not take an apple, […]

Thinking about those oxen

August 13, 2015

I sure do miss those oxen from the Big Ex in Nova Scotia. I asked my FIL (Father In Law!) if they always keep the oxen together and he said yes. For team building. And I did a little research about training oxen and they do like to be with their buddy and around other […]

The tour guides? Or the tourists?

August 12, 2015

My camera feels too heavy to start taking photos of Vancouver again. I still have so many photos of Nova Scotia to post that it doesn’t matter. Those tourists in Gastown can always wait a bit longer. We came home to no rain at all and maybe a little bit in the foreseeable future. Frightening. I […]

Back with the Smashy Brothers

August 11, 2015

I was kind of worried that the kitties would be mad at us for leaving them for 10 days. I guess that’s a stupid idea now that I type it out. I don’t think they can tell time and they were fed by the neighbours twice a day, so it makes no sense. ANYWAY, they […]
