I’ve been working on this blog post for several days and the words just won’t come. Perhaps it’s the subject matter or the lack of time. I ruminated on it during a few walks which is when the words usually fall into place. But alas without my Continue reading
I’m just mixing things up a little here while I’ve hit a short snag in Continue reading
Every year Halloween rolls around and people spend oodles of time and a smidgen of money “doing it up”. Costumes and house decorating and parties. Last year’s Halloween post even talked about how much money it pumps into the economy.
Every year Halloween rolls around and we scramble to find something Continue reading
There is a wonderful children’s book called Something from Nothing. It’s by one of my favourite Canadian authors of that genre, Phoebe Gilman. I was reminded of this book recently when I decided to create something from nothing. Once the Continue reading
Yes I post to Intragram too often, yes I spend a lot of time connecting in social media. While doing just those things today I discovered a new hashtag that I love!
It’s a time sensitive one though as like a throw back Thursday you can only publish it one day a week. In all reality I’m quite sure I can only do one blog post about it as I don’t have that many photos of them.
AND that’s why I keep thousands (yes thousands) of photos on my phone. So I can blog all favourites from one spot. But alas I couldn’t find my favourite two nor the newest one I would like to have shared. So I guess you’ll have to check back next Friday.
I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll try to blow your house down said the big bad wind. And try he did. I felt it shaking in the timbers but I’m happy to report it stood another go around.
Not quite so successful with a few items outside though. There are watering cans and dog water dishes spread around in the hay-field. The trees don’t break as they are all still little so that’s a blessing I guess. We don’t have a lot of leaves to blow away either but I hear in the city that was an upside to the crazy wind.
There were loads of tired people at work today due to noise. The list of items that kept us all awake were varied but included a neighbor’s gate, tin shingles or tree branches. In my case it was the screen window but I did hear a couple of stellar bangs. The new hot tub lid went up and over — yikes. Then the gate took a hit and cracked up.
The unfortunate but minor part is that all that fabulous fall colour is gone from our property. So glad we had our stellar photos done while the trees were wearing their glory coats.
As promised this post will be all about colour. The word itself lends itself to a blast from the long distant past brought to by Continue reading
Once upon a time in a land near here there was only one option. That was kind of like when dinosaurs roamed the prairies and I was just born or at least that is how old they all think I am at work. But I digress because really I am here comparing what was and what is. Continue reading
I always have at least one list on the go, sometimes two. Often when I review them I can get discouraged. Perhaps the 90% positive way to is “look what I did do”. That’s the thought that occurred to me today when I Continue reading
The beauty of the hike to the twin falls area was enough enticement to do the 20 km round trip hike. The icing on the cake was this amazing Continue reading
