International Talk Like A Pirate Day

ARGGGG!   Hope you all had a chance to ARRRG in honor of ITLAPD.  Neva celebrated in style. Ha! Today started out POURING with rain, and cleared when I got home from work.  Neva spotted crows (lots of crows) in the tree by our deck.  They’re having a feast on the berries.  Those photos and…

Twelve and Counting….

Yesterday, Dennis and I celebrated our 12th anniversary.   Amazing that 12 years has flown by so quickly.  We went out for breakfast to start the day off celebrating, we ran some errands then opened a bottle of bubbly and sent out for dinner last night.  It was a good day.  It was a very…

Catching Up Again

This has been a very, very busy week so apologize for the sporadic postings.  Quickly catching up tonight….photos include some shots from downtown, my aquarium, Neva, and a cooking workshop that I was volunteering as event photographer for.  Bonus….I got a great vegetarian Indian meal.  Enjoy the shots! Hopefully this coming week more regular posts…

Tuesday and Wednesday

Today’s photo round up includes shots from yesterday and today.  Yesterday, I took a lunchtime walk down to Olympic Village.  Today, on my way to work, I found a Tarzan toy (that was well hung on a tree…you’ll see what I mean by that.  wink) so took him for a photo walk tonight.  I walked…

Yesterday and Today

It is catch up time.  Today, I’m sharing photos from a drive my Mom and I took yesterday, and a quick walk after work to harvest the last of our tomatoes.  It is a pretty birdcentric post actually, but there were all kinds of sights to see. (love the Birdman of Victoria)  Have a wonderful…

Not many photos, lots of raindrops…

…and boy oh boy, do we ever need this rain!!!!  I’m over at my Mom’s in Victoria.  I didn’t take many photos on the ferry crossing, and we were out and about at appointments and running errands today, so there are only a few deer photos from the day.  I did photograph a snail on…

Busy Friday but with a little time for me

The last couple of days has been a little crazy. (involving downstairs neighbors, plumbers, landlords, visitors, strata councils, wild work, haze, smoke, rain, more plumbing, and some errands)  I took a little breath in the middle of the whirlwind and took an hour to walk around my long lost happy place Lost Lagoon.  It was…

Hazy Days at the Bird Pond (and in my neighborhood)

Wow…the smoke and haze from various wildfires is sitting like a brick over the city.  That said, I’m not complaining at all….our home is in tact, our family and friends are fine, and we are also not in the line of “fire” of a hurricane.  My thoughts are with all affected.  Today have been a…

Super Silly Vegetables

Yesterday, I had a little time on my hands, and had some photos of misshapen vegetables….that I turned into caricatures.  Silly me!!! Other photos are from in and around our little community garden, taken yesterday.  Last night’s sunset, and today’s photos are of the smoke/haze that has again blanketed Vancouver.  Enjoy the photos….  

Puppy Centric Post

There are much worse things than a puppy centric post….  AWWW!  Today, we went to a colleague of mine’s house to see/photograph their new additions, Otis and Lily.  These little lovlies are 9 weeks old, and Dennis and I are in love.  🙂  After that, we went for a walk around Deer Lake and the…

Long Weekend Chill

Today, we took a picnic to our friend’s Lindi and Jeff’s, had some fun with them and loved spending time with their Assistance Dog in Training, Mercy.  She’s 5 months old now, and absolutely lovely.  AWWW!  Afterward, Dennis and I went to Gastown, and had a couple of beer with some other friends.  I had…

Thursday walk at Olympic Village

After work tonight, I took a quick walk around the beaver pond at Olympic Village.  Didn’t see a beaver, and the pond they live in is covered with green “sludge” (apparently it is a type of weed), but I did see a tall ship that is a stage for an outdoor concert, a photoshoot for…
