Out came the sun…

…and dried up all the rain.  But more on that in a second.  I’ll start today’s post with more photos of frisky frogs, my fish, and a grainy picture of an old picture.  It was taken the day Neva was adopted.  I’ve also included a photo of dinner.  Looks like pulled pork…but is actually “pulled…

Walk in the rain, and some abstract art

As I mentioned yesterday, its been a bit of a crazy couple of days.  Today though, I took a lunchtime walk to Main St. in the rain, and had to help with some art projects.  Love the abstract looks of the paints.  Enjoy the Wednesday pictures.

Very slow couple of photo days

Life has got in the way of my photography over the last couple of days, so I have very very little to share.   I did however take a picture of a random heart in my bagel, the frisky frogs in my aquarium, Neva and the one festive drink I allow myself each holiday season.  This…

Saturday walk around Lost Lagoon

It wasn’t a very nice day today, but I did a very fast walk around Lost Lagoon just to get some fresh air and exercise.  There didn’t seem to be as many birds/wildlife out and about, but it was lovely!  Here are shots from the day, which includes a photo of a hummingbird at our…

Getting in the Holiday Spirit

Warning: This post may not be for the faint of heart…. Example #1 – Wanna see my baby teeth???  LOL!  Look what my Mom kept for all these years.  I need to incorporate these into a small pumpkin next Halloween. Example #2 – My two frogs have been very, very amorous for DAYS.  And what…

Fall leaves after the big storm

This morning, there was a little window of sun between storms.  The sun hitting the wet leaves, mushrooms etc were pretty.  I also made some new friends at lunchtime, and took photos of two boxers where were having  a great time.  Here is a gallery of autumn photos, as well as a few of my…

Tuesday in Richmond

I had one of my last vacation days today.  I was out at the airport with a friend, so I was in Richmond, which is about half an hour from my home.  It was a nasty day, but I went to Steveston and had a walk around the Cannery museum, watched some birds fighting the…

Sunday for the birds

Just a wrap up of my windy Sunday with my mom.  There were many birds to photograph….  And there was also a brave wedding party having photos in the storm!  Have a good rest of the week everyone!  Regular posts should return tomorrow.

Saturday with Mom

Hi from my Mom’s house in Victoria.  Just sharing a few photos from the day…..some from the ferry terminal and on the crossing, from Mount Douglas Park and from a drive around Beacon Hill Park.  Enjoy, and have a good rest of the weekend.

Just a few for Thursday

It has been a busy couple of days…..and photo taking has had to take a back seat to day to day life.  However, I will share just a few….hummingbirds on the deck, Neva, and a few shots of the activity in my aquarium today.  Regular posts should return soon.  

Feathers, Fins and Frogs

As the title says, today’s post has feathers (of stylized hummingbirds and birds at the bird pond that I saw during a walk at lunchtime), fins (of the two beautiful tetras in my aquarium) and frogs.  We have a new little frog friend, Polly.  She’s a little shy at the moment, but the veteran frog…

Very Uneventful Weekend

As the title says, we’ve had a very uneventful weekend.  Productive here at home, but not particularly eventful.   We also had our first few flurries of the season yesterday.  Here are just a few photos that were taken this weekend.  Have a great first week of November everyone!  (and Marion and John, Happy Birthday!!!)
