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 […]

Oh! That stove!

August 5, 2014

Told you it was a good one! This cool stove was in the kitchen of the oldie time Historic Stewart Farm at the Elgin Heritage Park in South Surrey – almost to White Rock. We visited this preserved house on the weekend while half a million people were celebrating the Pride Parade in Vancouver. I […]

Celebrated Full Metal Jacket style

Good old, Full Metal Jacket style. As per Mike’s request, I made him a box cake. Yup. That’s what he wanted. Not a scratch […]

It was at a heritage park and preserved farm house called The Historic Stewart Farm. It’s located right near Crescent Beach. The old farm house is in pristine condition with lovely furniture and […]

Teeny pies

August 2, 2014

Is it just me or is this a cranky pie? He’s a little on the frowny side. This morning I was up before the crack of dawn. Mike had to BE at work at 7:00 (oof) so there was no stop for pancakes along the way this Faturday. I hope IHOP was okay without us. […]

Almost the long weekend

July 31, 2014

I am ready for it. I’m not sure why I’m in such a hurry for these days off, but I just am. Maybe it’s the pie and cake I’ll be baking. Pretty sure that’s amping up my eagerness for the weekend. And the sewing. I just don’t get to sew during the week very often, […]

An Assortment of Projects

July 30, 2014

Photo by Mike! I realized today I have a few projects on the go. Time to write up the list. 1) Finish this roll of film. I’ve only got 4 or 5 photos left. I just haven’t found the exact right subject to take photos of for some reason. I have to take a few […]

This has started a chain reaction

July 29, 2014

Yesterday I hit the jackpot when I found this delightful dress FULL of skulls and guns. Guns? Yup. It’s in the pattern where you’d expect the cross bones to be under the skulls’ jaws. I was pretty sure I was never going to take it off, and I have to tell you that putting on […]
